If you’re a little bit rustic at heart, you probably already love the fall — so many wonderful occasions happen once the leaves start turning and the cider starts being pressed. But you don’t have to live in a country house or venture further into the cider fields than the local grocery store to like these rustic Halloween ideas — especially if you’re a soul who prefers a little less “edge” for your holidays. If that’s so, chances are you’ll love an antique-looking sign saying “Boo!”, or “Full moon spells cast October 31 midnight,” or the ever-popular “Happy Halloween.” You’ll probably like the homemade touch of flags strung across the fireplace mantel with cute Halloween greetings on them, and you’ll love doing up your front porch in cornstalks, pumpkins, or an orange wreath. Want more? Read on!

Spread some straw across your mantel and put up black kettles full of candy corn, taffy, and other treats, along with some black-painted or white-painted pumpkins — even a straw pumpkin looks great here. Outdoors, set up an antique cabinet with black cats, witches’ hats, silhouettes, and a black cake stand (holding a treat, of course). String lettered paper plates in front of a buffet table to spell out “Spooky,” or paint a pyramid of pumpkins with black tree branches and stack them with the smallest on top, painted gray with a yellow moon. Fun “wreaths” with straw instead of flowers look great this time of year; and who doesn’t love miniature orange lights, a black branch, and a family of ravens on a mantelpiece? Take inspiration from these images — and have a rustic good time!
