Last Minute Halloween Party Decor

Halloween is right around the corner! Are you throwing a party? Do you need some party decor inspiration? I’ve got you covered. This post is loaded with last minute, easy Halloween party ideas (with links!) to compliment your existing seasonal decor.


DIY Pumpkin Balloons


Let’s start with these cute DIY Pumpkin Balloons. In my party planning experience, balloons are one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to create a big effect. This idea to add vinyl faces to balloons is so simple, the kids can help. For variety, try using black balloons and white vinyl to make cats or bats.

Halloween Cake Topper


Let them eat cake! Specifically, with this Halloween Silhouette Cake Topper. Make mini toppers for cupcakes if you prefer. Try making a witch on a broom, or a skeleton topper instead.

Isn’t that one of the beauties of owning a Silhouette machine? You can take an idea and copy it exactly or tweak it to your liking in Silhouette Studio®. With 90,000+ designs available in the Design Store, there are plenty of options.

Halloween Soap Dispensers


Chances are, your guests are gonna hear the call of nature during the party. With these eye-catching Halloween Soap Dispensers you can be sure they will want to wash their hands before leaving the bathroom!

They are as simple as cutting and transferring a little bit of adhesive vinyl. If you’re like me, you probably have a stash of scrap vinyl that will do the job.


Spooky Faux-Etched Mirror


Looking for something a little more on the spooky side to welcome your guests? I love this Spooky Faux-Etched Mirror.

Did you know you can purchase Silhouette Frosted Vinyl in the online Silhouette Store? When you don’t necessarily want to permanently etch your mirror or glass, this is a great alternative.

Are you having a haunted house at your party? How cool would this skull look in Glow-in-the-dark vinyl, also available in the Silhouette Store?


Potion Bottle Labels


Are you inspired to make some Potion Bottle Labels that are so popular this time of year? These are great for labeling drinks and sodas at the beverage station at your party. There are several styles to choose from in the Design Store. Here’s an example using Printable Sticker Paper.

Print & Cut, guys. If you haven’t tried it yet, you need to. It’s a game changer for making stickers and cupcake toppers. A tutorial about Print & Cut can be found here.

Here’s another example of some spooky potion labels to inspire you.






“Bone Appetit” Tray


For a Halloween play on words, this “Bone Appetit” Tray would be perfect to display on the food table. Add some labels for an egg salad “sand-witch” tray and one for “Franken-slime” pudding and you’re good to go!

Photo BOOth


Everybody loves a photo booth. And really, what’s a party without one? They’re perfect ice-breakers! This Halloween Photo Booth will invite your guests to be silly and get busy creating photos to remember your party forever.



Are you ready to party yet? I am!

Janet Henderson

Hello fellow crafters! I am really excited to be a part of the Design Team this year! I love all things home decor, photography and doing fun things with my husband and our 6 children, ages 4-19. I grew up on the Space Coast of Florida and we still live about 10 minutes from the beach. We recently moved to a new (to us) home and have begun updating it, including removing the MILES of wallpaper straight out of the 90’s. When it comes to projects big or small, I have no fear. Thankfully, I have had more successes than failures!
