How to Hang Halloween Decorations Without Damaging Your Walls

Halloween is a time of year when homes transform into haunted houses, pumpkins perch on every porch, and spooky wall decor adds a touch of frightful fun. But as thrilling as it is to deck out your home for Halloween, wall damage from poorly hung Halloween decorations can be scary. In this blog post, Tailor Made Rooms will teach you safe and easy methods for hanging creepy decor and Halloween wall art.

Halloween decor plays a crucial role in setting the right October mood. Whether you're aiming for a subtly spooky atmosphere or a full-blown haunted house vibe, the right Halloween decorations can bring your vision to life. Scary wall decor, in particular, can make a significant impact, transforming plain walls into captivating scenes of fright and delight.

Safe Ways to Hang Halloween Decor

Here are some wall friendly ways to mount your Halloween wall hangings:

Adhesive Hooks: These are perfect for lightweight items like Halloween canvas art. Simply peel off the backing, press the hook onto the wall, and voila! Be sure to choose a product rated for the weight of your decor.
Removable Picture Hanging Strips: These are ideal for hanging things like lightweight skeleton decorations or Halloween wall lights. They lock together to secure your decor and can be removed cleanly without leaving residue or damage.
Tension Rods: If you're hanging bewitching Halloween decor across a window or doorway, tension rods are an excellent non-damaging option. They're easy to install and remove, and they don't require any drilling or hardware.
Magnetic Paint: This is a more permanent solution but allows you to hang decor with magnets, eliminating the need for nails or adhesive. This is a great option for those DIY skeleton masks you plan to make with the kids or paper Halloween skeletons.
