Holidays let us live in a fantasyland for a bit, and there’s no better time than Halloween to venture into another world. Get inspired by these five movies and television shows when you decorate this fall.

Stranger Things

Break out the Christmas lights early and make a wall Ouija board, which could be especially striking as a party photo backdrop. Add dead matter – paper mache and cobwebs will create the effect if you don’t like the idea of actual decaying vegetation indoors – to re-create the Upside Down. If you’re feeling really ambitious, do this all over your house. Or contain it to one area and add a hole in the wall with construction paper or a decal. Then sit back and enjoy a nice waffle.

Hocus Pocus

You don’t have to toil and trouble yourself over this décor. Hocus Pocus, or anything with witches, is a solid go-to for your Halloween décor. Stay true to the movie with this Binx wreath from PopSugar, or take some creative license and include your own favorite black cat, bats or spiders in a door wreath.

This movie also lends itself well to outdoor Halloween decorations. We’ve shared this one before, but we love how Polka Dot Chair turned inexpensive witches’ hats into porch luminaries. When DIY isn’t in the cards, look for this movie-inspired doormat to spruce up your entryway.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Say “season’s greetings” by turning your door into a giant Jack Skellington. If your door is already white, all you need is the free printable facial features, making this one of our simplest tricks that also makes a statement.

Doggos love Halloween, too. This DIY floating Zero uses recycled materials for frame. After you stiffen the fabric of your ghost dog’s body, it’ll be ready to hang and light up. This makes a great addition to your front porch or indoors wherever you want some extra Halloween spirit.

Coco

If Día de los Muertos is more your celebratory style, we have three DIY projects inspired by Coco that are great for the whole family. Disney Family’s papel picado banners add tons of vibrant color in any room, on mantels or even as bunting along tables. Or you can make your own calaveras –decorative skulls – with this tutorial from Moms and Munchkins.

Marigolds are a must-have for Day of the Dead. You can plant the real thing or make your own from tissue paper, no green thumb necessary.

Monsters Inc. and Monsters University

We know they aren’t technically Halloween movies, but … monsters! If you’re looking for a no-carve pumpkin idea, try painting your gourd green and add a giant eye for your own Mike Wazowski. Keep the Mike theme going, especially if you’re low on time or energy, with this balloon monster.

Decorating any time of the year should be fun. Find more seasonal décor tips by following Schlage on Instagram or Pinterest.
