One of the best things about pirate decorations is that they're relatively easy to come by. You can find all sorts of pirate-themed items at your local Party City or check out our favorite local artisan market at Etsy.
In this blog post, we'll discuss some of the best ways to decorate your home with pirates in mind. So grab your eyepatch and peg leg and let's get started!
DoorFotos are a unique, simple way to customize your exterior and interior doors with fabric door covers. They take less than 28-seconds to install, so they make decorating really, really easy and alot of fun since you can put any image on a DoorFoto. Some of our favorite designs we have on our website are the pirate-themed ones because they are so stinking cool! Since DoorFoto was born in Tampa, FL, we know a thing or two about pirates in that we host the Gasparilla parade every year right in our city!
Some quick history on Gasparilla- In the late 1800s, a group of men calling themselves Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla pretended to be a band of pirates led by Jose Gaspar, a mythical Spanish pirate captain. The group held an annual parade and invasion in Tampa which became so popular that it turned into the largest pirate festival in the United States!
The best part is? You do not have to be from Tampa, nor be in Tampa to celebrate your love of pirates!
If you go to DoorFoto.com and type in "Pirate", a list of 76 different pirate designs is there for you to choose from. We have designs that are realistic or cartooney, and scary or not-so-scary, so you are sure to find one that fits your style!
Outdoor Pirate Decor
When it comes to pirate décor, nothing beats the atmosphere of decorating outdoors. Whether you're hosting a pirate-themed party or just want to bring a bit of that swashbuckling spirit into your backyard during the Gasparilla events, there are endless possibilities for outdoor pirate decorations. You can start by draping salvaged fabric or old sails in tangled, gothic-looking shapes around your patio to give it an air of mystery and intrigue. If you'd like something with a bit more pizzazz, try hanging ornate cutout shapes from your trees or the side of your house to create dazzling silhouettes in the moonlight. And no pirate-themed space would be complete without some well-placed skull and crossbone flags, whether they're waving flamboyantly in the wind or hanging proudly from sturdy poles.
From inflatable parrots and flamingos to life-size skeletons and intricately carved signs, there is something for every taste and budget. Whether you prefer a refined seaside style or a more over-the-top, gaudy look, there are plenty of fun ways to add a little pirate flair to your outdoor living space. So gather your gold doubloons and get ready to deck out your garden with some really swashbuckling additions! After all, what's better than having a backyard that feels like it's straight out of the Caribbean? Arghhh mateys! Who's ready for plunderin' this summer? ;)
Pirate flags are a great way to add some color to your decor, and you can even find flag sets that come with everything you need to make your own pirate flag. All you need is a white sheet or piece of fabric, some black felt, and a few other craft supplies.
If you don't want to mess with an actual flag, you could check out DoorFoto for some really cool pirate flag designs! Such as this DoorFoto called "Pirate Flag." Our door wraps go right over your door like a fitted bed sheet in 28 seconds, so no need to hang up a flag or anything!
Argh, me hearties! There be nothin' more Piratey than a proper pirate costume. Just what kind of Pirate ye want to be? There be Pirate costumes for men, women, and children of all ages. Pirate costumes typically include a shirt with a ruffled collar, pants, boots, a belt, and a headscarf. Many also include a vest, jacket, or sash. A fake sword or knife is often tucked into the belt. Pirates might also wear an eye patch, earring, or scarf around their head. Pirate costumes can be made from scratch or purchased at ye local costume shop. Halloween and Gasparilla are the perfect time to break out the pirate decorations and dress up like a swashbuckling buccaneer! Argh! Avast ye scurvy Dog! I'll have yer gold before the night is through!
No pirate-themed decor would be complete without some pirate treasure... a.k.a gold doubloons! You can find all sorts of fake treasure at your local party store or go online and search at Target or Etsy, or you can get creative and make your own party decorations.
Glue together some old jewelry, coins, and other trinkets to create your own pirate treasure chest. You could even hand these out as party favors or use them as party supplies if you are having a pirate birthday party!
Who wouldn't love to fish for some gold doubloons in a treasure chest at a pirate birthday party?
Last but not least, no pirate decor would be complete without a Pirate Ship! You can find all sorts of Pirate Ships (big, medium, or small) at your local party store.
Or you can always get creative and make your own. All you need is a large cardboard box, some black paint, and a few other craft supplies. Cut out some windows and a door, paint the outside black, and you're good to go!
But, if neither of these suits your wants, check out this "Pirate Ship Decor" DoorFoto instead! It features a beautiful pirate ship floating on the sea in the sunset. This is the perfect solution for you since our installation only takes 28 seconds and it will check the box for a pirate ship being in your decor!
