5 Ways to Style-Up Your Kitchen for Halloween

5 Ways to Style-Up Your Kitchen for Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner and you've probably already thought about what costume you want to wear or how much candy to buy. But have you considered how you can make your kitchen Halloween-themed? If not, it's time to get creative with these five ideas:

Put up a back splash that says BOO

If you're going to be in the kitchen all day, why not have some fun with it? The first step is to find an area of your kitchen wall that's not too busy. Then, take a look at these three options:

  • Chalkboard paint. You can use this product to make any surface into an erasable chalkboard. This would be perfect for writing out Halloween messages or activities for kids (or adults) in your home! You can also paint over existing walls or cabinets if you don't have time or money to buy new ones (but we suggest using a white base coat first).
  • Stencils. If you don't want anything too permanent, try stenciling on some Halloween themed designs instead of painting everything black like we did below with our witch cutouts! We used the same technique as above but instead made shapes out of craft foam and attached them directly onto the wall with hot glue

Invest in black appliances, wooden serveware, and dark counter tops

If you're looking to make your kitchen look like a haunted house this Halloween, black appliances, wooden serveware, and dark counter tops are the way to go. These3 features can add a sinister vibe that'll really help set the mood for trick-or-treating, and they don't have to be expensive or difficult to install.

Black appliances aren't as popular as they used to be, but most home improvement stores carry them—like this black Espresso Machine. Dark counter tops are also easy enough to find: just visit DIY stores like Home Depot where they sell everything from hardware supplies like grout and tile adhesive, all the way down through cabinets and doors!

Use wooden bowls and dishes to serve snacks, appetizers and desserts during the party. Don’t forget to use a piece of colorful cloth on top of your serving dish for a little extra pizzazz!

Use cobwebs as curtains

Use cobwebs as curtains. This is an easy Halloween-themed trick that you can apply to your kitchen's window treatments in a flash. All you need are a few cobwebs, some pins, and some curtain rings. Attach the cobwebs to your curtain rod using the pins, then hang them on each side of your window! If you don't like the look of real spider webs (or if they're too hard to find), there are plenty of fake ones out there that would still give any kitchen a festive feel.

Use small pumpkins as door pulls

If you don't have the tools or skills to cut out a hole in a pumpkin, then consider replacing your door pulls with small pumpkins. A few simple steps are all it takes to make this look work.

Cutting the Pumpkin: If you have an electric carving knife, use that! Otherwise, you can use a wooden knife or screwdriver and drill bit (drill bits come in several sizes).

Making Holes for Screws: Use either a screwdriver or drill and hammer—or both! You can also just drill straight through the top of your pumpkin without making holes for screws (if you want) by using extra long screws and nuts (you could even skip this step by using glue instead of nuts).

Organize your drawers with candy corn or candy shaped drawer liners.

We all know that candy corn is the go-to Halloween treat. It’s no surprise that it can be used for so many things, including organizing your kitchen drawers.

If you're looking for something new and different than the standard plastic drawer liner, why not try some candy corn? You don't even have to buy them from the store—you can make your own using this tutorial!

This is a great way to add some spooky fun into your kitchen while keeping things organized at the same time. If you want something more traditional but still festive, you can also use gummy worms or other Halloween treats as drawer liners!

We hope you enjoyed our ideas for decorating your kitchen this Halloween. We thought we would share one more idea with you before we wrap up: put together a fun costume, and wear it while baking or cooking! In fact, the best costumes are always homemade. So grab some of your favorite ingredients or supplies from around the house and get creative!
