Have you ever wanted to create an aesthetic Halloween bedroom like you see on Pinterest or TikTok? Then you’ve come to the right place.
Creating an aesthetic Halloween bedroom is much easier than you might think. In this post, we’ll walk you through deciding a theme for your room, where to find decor, and ideas to create a fun, festive space you’d feel proud to post on social media.
Choose a Theme
It’s tempting to throw every Halloween thing you can find into your bedroom, but it won’t produce the aesthetic look you want. Instead, you want to create a cohesive look with just the right decor.
The way to do that is to pick a theme for your bedroom before you even start decorating. It’ll guide your decorating and make sure you buy pieces that work together.
For an aesthetic bedroom, choose a simple theme, such as a single spooky element or color scheme. Some ideas include:
- Black & White
- Burnt Orange
- Vintage Halloween
Once you've picked a theme, you can move on to the fun part - finding decor and decorating your room.
Where to Find Decor
Once September hits, Halloween decor is everywhere. But where are the best places to get cute, aesthetic things for your room? Here are a few suggestions.
- Amazon. You can find many cute things on Amazon for a decent price. They may not be the best quality, but they’re perfect for decor you’ll only use one month a year.
- Target. Target is well known for its trendy decorations. But be careful going here because you’ll probably come back with far more than you planned.
- HomeGoods. Halloween decor floods HomeGoods at the end of summer. While it’s a bit pricier, it’s a great place to find bedding, dishes, and candles.
- Etsy. Looking for unique decor pieces? Etsy is the place to go. Plus, you’ll get items handmade with love.
- Local businesses. Support a local small business by seeing what Halloween decor they have. Like Etsy, you’ll find unique pieces you can’t buy elsewhere.
Creating an Aesthetic Halloween Bedroom
1. Change your Bedding
Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom. Once that’s changed to a Halloween theme, you’re on your way to a cute, aesthetic bedroom.
Blankets and Comforters
Start by switching the blankets on your bed. Choose a new comforter or duvet cover to match your theme, then add a throw blanket or two for extra coziness.
Switch out some of your decorative pillows for cute Halloween pillows. You can also get Halloween-themed pillow shams or pillowcases for your regular pillows.

2. Consider Your Lighting
Lighting plays a big part in the mood of your room. To make it cozier and spookier, try these lighting tips.
Change out your white fluorescent lightbulbs for soft white ones instead, making your room lighting warmer. Another alternative is switching your bulbs to old-fashioned Eddison-style bulbs.
Another great way to make your lighting cozy is string lights. They come in all shapes and colors, so look for ones that best match your theme.
Finally, try grabbing some Halloween lighting. Look for lights shaped like ghosts or pumpkins, glow-in-the-dark decor, or old-fashioned lamps and lanterns.
3. Add Decor
With your bed looking beautiful and the lighting creating your ideal ambiance, it’s time to add decor. What you choose to include depends on your theme, but here are a few ideas to get you started.
Pumpkins can match almost any Halloween theme. A hand-carved faux Jack-O-Lantern adds a handmade touch, while ceramic or glass pumpkins make your room classy.
A posable skeleton is a fun way to add simple spookiness to your room. You can place him anywhere or dress him up with hats and ties. If you have a small space, get a miniature one instead.
Sometimes, all you need to change the feel of your room is a few pieces of decor. Grab a few things from around your house, or buy knickknacks to display around your room as a finishing touch.
Candles are great decor and provide your room with amazing smells. And you can buy lots of fun candles, from Halloween scents to unique Halloween shapes.
4. Wall Hangings
You can’t forget your bedroom walls. Once you’ve decorated them, your spooky Halloween bedroom will be ready.
Switch out a few pieces of wall art for something more Halloween-themed. Consider skeleton art, black-and-white pictures, or make your own thrifted ghost painting.
Garlands are easy to hang and look great anywhere in your room. Hang it from your headboard, drape it on your bookshelf, or wrap it around your vanity.
Use some of your favorite costume pieces around your room as decorations. You could put masks above your bed, accessories on your dresser, or hang hats from the ceiling.
Use a combination of these ideas to create your perfect, aesthetic Halloween bedroom. Have fun decorating!
