Cute ways to add Halloween touches to the nursery
Believe it or not, Halloween is right around the corner, and yes, even the tiniest member of your family can get in on Spooky Season! If you’re looking for some clever ways to introduce the holiday to your nursery (without getting too creepy, of course), we’re here with some simple decorating tips. It’s super easy to celebrate Halloween and all of the magic it brings even if your child is just a few months old. Here are some of our favorite ways to add charm to the nursery this month.
Throw it back to your trick-or-treating days and grab a plastic pumpkin pail to use as decor. Sure, it’ll be a few years until your little one can enjoy sweet treats, but you can fill the pail with items that Baby will enjoy these days—think pacifiers, teething rings, and the like. It’ll make the everyday feel a little more festive! If you do decide to bring your little one with you on the 31st, you can of course use the pail to collect all kinds of delectable goodies that you and your older ones can enjoy.
The bookshelf is such an integral part of the nursery, and there are plenty of ways to have fun with it each holiday. Jazz up your child’s bookshelf for the season by showcasing some aptly themed reads that the two of you can enjoy together. Some can’t miss titles for the baby and toddler set include Five Little Pumpkins, Spooky Pookie, and Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin. If you have older children, allow them to help pick out a special seasonal book to read as a family each night so that they can feel more included!
Stick-on bats are everywhere, and they’re an affordable, easy way to add some Halloween spirit to the nursery in just a couple of minutes. Not sure where to hang ‘em? Many people opt to display these bats either on an oversized mirror or in a corner nook. They’re festive but definitely not spooky, and they’ll come right off once the season is over. We’re all for a low lift yet spirited touch like this one.
There are so many different ways to get creative and celebrate your love of the Halloween season in the nursery, whether your child is entering toddlerhood or is just a newborn. Remember that Halloween decor definitely doesn’t have to be spooky; there are so many fun ways to celebrate that are far from scary. Happy decorating!
Everyday magic, captured.
