Rebecca and Shannon of Petite Party Studio know a lot about holiday decorating, so it’s no wonder their Halloween dining room decorations look so awesome. This is their contribution to our Halloween Style Challenge series here on The Home Depot Blog. We sent Rebecca and Shannon a mystery box of Home Depot Halloween decorations, and challenged them to show us their most amazing Halloween dining room decorating idea.
They came up with a chic and modern look with bright orange and black, with a bit of magenta, along with some great DIY ideas.
Halloween Dining Room Decorations
Halloween is definitely one our favorite holidays, so when The Home Depot asked us to participate in the Halloween Style Challenge, we accepted faster than a ghost could say BOO! We were hoping we would get assigned the dining room and guess what, we did! That meant a little more than just holiday decorating; it meant a small room makeover. Shannon was really wanting to tackle a few…actually a bunch of DIY projects and since I just finished my dining room, her space was going to be our blank canvas for our Halloween dining room decorations.
We started by painting the room with Behr Paint in Swiss Coffee to bring it back to basics. Next, she opted for this fun Frames Wallpaper we found online at The Home Depot that would be great for everyday living but especially spooky for Halloween.
So wallpapering we did!! Once it was dry, we used creepy old photos and taped them within the framed areas of the wallpaper…pretty spooky, huh?
Spray Painted Chandelier
For the next part of our project we wanted to replace the light fixture. We found this 5-Light Antler Chandelier and knew it would be super chic with a fresh coat of Rust-Oleum Spray Paint in Magenta. We decided that we were going to keep with the traditional orange and black color scheme, but kicked it up a notch by throwing in an unexpected BLAST of pink!
DIY Drop Cloth Rug
Purchasing a rug was definitely out of our budget, so we dug deep into the idea archives of our design school days and DIY’d a floor covering.
Oh yes, we made a rug.
All you need is a drop cloth, some craft paint, scissors and a glue gun. We purchased a 9 x 12 drop cloth…it was a little big so we cut it down to 7 x 10, turned the trimmed edges under and secured them with hot glue.
Next, we painted black crosses onto the drop cloth. We measured out our pattern to make sure it was even and free-handed the shapes using the paint and a 2-in. paint brush.
To add a designer touch, we crafted some yarn tassels and dip dyed them to match our Halloween décor color scheme.
We attached the tassels under the corners with packing tape. That way you can change them out for each holiday to match your décor.
Pine Board and Pipe Shelves
Spiders and Spider Web Runner
We found some cheese cloth in the Home Depot Paint Department and knew it would make the perfect “spider-web-looking” backdrop and table runner.
We even dip-dyed the runner to match the rug tassels.
These glittery spiders were the PERFECT critters to use throughout our Halloween dining room decorations to use as a unifying element. We hung a few spiders from the chandelier with fishing line, spread a few down the table and embellished the shelf wall too. The room was crawling with them.
Spray painted wine bottles with printable labels, and spray painted pumpkins were the main projects for the tabletop.
We hid LED tealight candles throughout the runner for a spooky glow at night.
We love the way our look came together, the perfect amount of spooky and POP of chic!
Who is ready for our Halloween party?
