Witches’ Potion Shelf

What speaks of Halloween spirit more than witches, spells, and potions? Create a bewitching atmosphere with apothecary bottles of colorful liquid, faux spiderwebs, mini witches' cauldrons, and a faux black cat. This is a fun way to add a spellbinding charm to your space. You can even take the display up a notch by adding LED-lighted floating shelves to illuminate the witches’ creepy collection. 

Enchanted Bookshelves

If your floating shelves are used as a bookcase wall, then why not turn them into an enchanted library? Find and include books related to the supernatural and ghost stories to include with decorative spell books. Add some faux cobwebs, flickering LED candles, and old skeleton keys to complete the eerie atmosphere.

Frightful Wall Art

Floating shelves are the perfect platform for displaying Halloween-themed art. Hang creepy wall art in ornate frames – think ravens, ghosts, black and white haunted places, dark forests, and hooded figures. Complete the shelf display with smaller décor curiosities to give the space a truly eerie feel.

Jack-O-Lantern Perch

We know the dark and creepy décor isn’t for everyone. You might be up for trying a more lighthearted Halloween décor approach. A great way to do this is adding pumpkin-themed shelves to your home. Floating shelves serve as a perfect Jack-O-Lantern perch where you can place carved pumpkins and pumpkin-themed decorations. Add some flickering LED candles to create a soft, beautiful glow.

Enchanted Elegance

For those who prefer a more sophisticated Halloween look, a muted color scheme is a great choice. Decorate your floating shelves with gold candelabras, black lace, soft-colored faux pumpkins, and a cloche-enclosed dark flower. The space won’t feel quite so creepy, but it’ll still create the dark atmosphere that most associate with Halloween.

Rotate Seasonal Décor

One of the best things about floating shelves is how customizable they are. They can easily be decorated with traditional fall décor and then swapped out for some simple Halloween decorations as the holiday approaches. This constantly changing display will keep your space fresh and exciting year-round.

Halloween is all about having fun and unleashing your creativity and floating shelves are the perfect canvases to showcase your Halloween spirit. Whether you prefer a creepy and eerie atmosphere or gravitate toward a traditional space with less frightful décor, floating shelves are easily customizable to fit your style. So don’t forget to include some floating shelves in your home this Halloween, and let the spirit of the season come alive in your home. Happy Haunting!
