Classic black and white is a perfect color combo for a Gothic Halloween Party Decor theme. I love the black and white Halloween look and I love decorating for Halloween. Even if you don't like scary, this elegant style Halloween style adds just enough Halloween for spooky fun.. You can make these projects and grunge it up a bit for a more vintage gothic look if you'd like.
Gothic Halloween Party Decor
Cut Halloween decor pieces using your Cricut machine. You can reuse images to create your Halloween party theme.
Before I go into detail, here's a list of the Gothic Halloween party decor project tutorials I have for you:
- Spiderweb Garland
- Spiderweb and Raven Wreath
- Spiderweb Luminary
- Bat and Raven Cupcake Toppers
- Bat Ball Hanging Centerpiece
I designed a crow, bat and spiderwebs along with a big spiderweb ball that I used to make a hanging bat center piece. I also used the bats in wall decor, to decorate a candle vase and as tiny cupcake toppers. I think a party invitation featuring the bat or the crow would be pretty cool too.
Here are some detailed shots of the different projects I created using my Cricut Machine.
Gothic Halloween cupcake toppers
You can quickly make these fun bat and raven cupcake toppers with two cut files and some toothpicks. I've created a Cricut Design Space canvas, all ready to go. You can find it here. The cupcakes feature a basic white frosting and black decorations to keep the clean black and white theme going.
Gothic Halloween Straw Decor
I used the same bats from the cupcake toppers and glued them to paper straws. I like the small straw decorations, but you could cut them a little larger if you prefer. Paper straws are the key, they are really easy to glue items to, just make sure to glue the decoration far enough down that little mouths aren't sucking on glue.
Gothic Halloween Candle Vase
I cut out decorative bats and solid bats out of home decor vinyl to make this Halloween candle vase. Removing all the little swirl details does take some patience, but once all the details are cut out, the end result is gorgeous, don't you think? I love how this candle vase turned out! I think it would also work really well on a shorter vase, so the candle light can glow through the bat designs.
Gothic Halloween Wall Decor And Spiderweb Garland
To make wall art, you just need a classic black frame and a great design to cut out of card stock. Each of these designs, I created and saved as SVG files. Once I had them cut, I just glued them to a white cardstock background and then framed. It takes 5 times longer to cut than to assemble – that's my kind of project! (Unless I have to cut the art by hand… can you imagine? That would have taken forever!). I have the Bat and Raven shadows available as free SVG files, the fancy cuts I'll share soon too!
Check out my Hanging Bat Centerpiece to grab a free SVG file to make the solid bats and the spiderweb sphere. You can use that bat to make all kinds of cool Halloween decor pieces. I'll have more SVG files for this Gothic Halloween Party Decor DIY set available soon! In the meantime, check out the Cricut Design Space library for a whole pile of fabulous Halloween cut files.

I hope I've inspired you to create some fun projects for Halloween. The black and white theme is so easy to fun with, add a splash a color or keep it simple. Add a few vintage pieces and the gothic Halloween party decor look will start to emerge.
What will you make for Halloween?
