Gothic Holiday Decor

Can you tell that I’m in a constant inner battle between earthy bohemian, Morticia elegance, and Elvira kitch? One of these days I’ll find a way to force those three ideas to play nicely as one cohesive look. Either way, one thing that I love about having skulls and little, dark critters around is that they aren’t that hard to Christmasify—just add a Santa hat, candy cane, or some holly/mistletoe and you have Christmas decor. In fact, I have wanted some sort of mount for a few years now for exactly this purpose. Preferably a unicorn, but that’s neither here nor there. I’m getting off topic.

Subconsciously, my goal with this post ended up being to show how to do gothic Christmas decor without just putting Halloween decorations on a tree—which you can totally do, but I like the idea of allowing Christmas to be its own spooky thing. Whichever you choose, I hope this post sparks some ideas for how to creep up your Christmas decor. I am personally now missing my apartment more than ever.
