Here at jmm PR, we have been scouring the internet for our favourite articles of the week.
This week brings stylish Halloween decorations as well as five simple, autumn-themed DIY projects to try.
This year is flying by and, whether we can believe it or not, Halloween is now just round the corner! Decorating for Halloween can be a little tricky when you’re still trying to keep your house looking stylish; so many decorations can lack the elegance that you may be looking for in your home. Because of this, we loved this article by Real Homes that has some fun and creative, yet stylish decorations that you can buy now for this spooky season!
We really liked Lights4fun’s Halloween bunting with built-in LED lights, it’s a fun alternative that will be especially great for parties or entertaining family and friends. However, if you’re looking for something a bit more adaptable, KUUQA’s bat wall stickers are perfect for placing where you want and as frequently as you want throughout your home. You could arrange them together to look like a colony of bats flying away, or you could dot them individually throughout the room for a more spaced-out approach.
Pumpkin-themed decorations are ideal for a trendy Halloween look in your home, they are much less showy than skeletons or ghosts as they offer a more neutral feel that could even be kept as general autumnal decorations outside of Halloween. ZHONGXIN’s pumpkin lights offer a more delicate look that’s perfect as chic autumnal lighting. Real Homes also offers up plenty of artificial pumpkins to scatter around your home. Our favourites were HBlife’s assorted artificial pumpkins which can come in a variety of colours and patterns to suit any interior, and Lights4fun’s grey and white felt pumpkins offer a much more subtle and elegant approach. We also loved Qivange’s skull head flower pot which is ideal for a more stylish gothic interior, as well as being versatile as it could be used as a snack bowl too.

Continuing with the autumn/Halloween theme, we spotted this article from Good Homes featuring five seasonal Pinterest projects, and just knew we had to include it in our round up of our favourite articles of the week! If, like us, the sudden drop in temperature has left you feeling uninspired when it comes to weekend plans, why not give one of these DIY projects a go? You could also create some stunning seasonal décor for your home at the same time too.
If you’re looking for some stylish décor to jazz up your banister, mantelpiece or to drape around a mirror, the article includes a guide on how to create some autumnal fairy lights with leaves. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how easy and inexpensive this project is, and the only materials you’ll need are leaves, waxed paper, glue and a string of fairy lights! We think these are great for making a space feel super cosy, perfect for spending evenings at home over the winter.
Another project idea included in the article is a candle centrepiece decorated with leaves, and this couldn’t be more simple to recreate at home. All you need is some pillar candles (for an added seasonal touch, why not pick ones with an autumnal scent like spiced pumpkin or cinnamon?), as well as some leaves, hessian fabric and brown string. The article suggests using this as a decoration for your dining table, and we think it would look great on a coffee table or window ledge too.
With Halloween just a few weeks away, now is the time to start decorating your home with pumpkins! If real pumpkins aren’t your thing, why not try creating paper alternatives (pictured below) that can be used year after year? While the list of materials required is slightly more extensive than the other projects mentioned, we promise the end result will be worth it! We love how you can customise the colour of paper used to complement your space, and by simply popping an LED candle inside once finished, you can create a cosy atmosphere that’s perfect for those chilly autumn nights.
The article also includes guides on creating an autumn sensory jar, as well as DIY pumpkins made from toilet roll and fabric. We can’t wait to give some of these ideas a go this weekend! Will you be trying out any of these projects at home? Don’t forget to let us know in the comments.
