Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without the grinning orange Jack-o-Lanterns, frightening ghouls, black cats, and witch’s cauldrons. To set the perfect haunting Halloween backdrop, having the right set of decorations is key. Whether you dive fully into the creepy aesthetic and transform your living room into a Night of the Living Dead set or you prefer a cutesy, kid-friendly Halloween with smiling cartoon ghosts and happy pumpkins, the following sites are guaranteed to set the Halloween mood.
For a huge assortment of affordable Halloween decorations for indoors and outdoors, check out Target’s Halloween offerings. Slightly less spooky overall than online stores like Spirit, their decorations scream traditional Halloween style. Think orange and black pumpkins, plenty of skulls, and cutesy tombstone signs that say “Haunt Ya Later!”
If you’re eager to transform your home or yard into a bone-chilling place worthy of a horror movie, Spirit provides a bloodcurdling range of haunting Halloween decorations, spooky enough for even the most experienced haunted house fanatic. On the scary side of the Halloween spectrum, Spirit sells Halloween lights, yard decorations, fog machines, life-size animatronics, including a full-size Beetlejuice, and props like startling Zombie babies. Yikes!
Known for its hauntingly low prices and wide selection, Oriental Trading has a super-browsable website that makes decorating your home for Halloween a snap. Search by decoration type, like yard signs, ceiling decorations, or wall decor, or shop their coordinated Halloween decorating themes like “zombie outbreak” or “witch’s den” and save yourself time with their curated selection of props, porch and yard decorations, and festive accessories.
If you’re more into Halloween seasonal home decor rather than turning your home into a ghostly haunted house with spooky props (although they sell these as well), Michaels is an excellent source for candles, tabletop pumpkins, garlands, pillows, wall decor, and lights. These generally come in more friendly themes like cutesy pumpkins, witches, ghosts, and the traditional Halloween colors, black, orange, and purple.
If you’re interested in turning your yard into a formidable, haunted house, then check out Home Depot for its wickedly wonderful selection of life-size props and inflatables. From fog machines and spooky animatronic haunted talking trees to classic skeleton props and adorable candy corn witches with built-in LEDs, Home Depot has everything you need to transform your front yard into the envy of the neighborhood!
Although their selection of decorations is much smaller than some of the other websites on this list, World Market has a delightful selection of indoor decorations, like laser-cut candle holders, jack-o-lanterns, ornaments, and lights with unique designs that you won’t find elsewhere. They also feature a startling selection of affordable pillar and taper candles if you want to introduce candlelight into your Halloween aesthetic!
If you’re looking for high-quality Halloween-themed home accessories and decor to use year after year, Pottery Barn has a wonderful, curated selection of decorations, dinnerware, and drinkware to set the perfect spooky mood for a Halloween dinner party. Think items like rattan or ceramic pumpkins, eerie glass decanters with skulls, handcrafted skeleton drinkware with creepy fingers grasping the glass, and adorable mugs with ghostly eyes peering out at you.
For bespoke Halloween decorations created by boutique stores, artists and makers, check out Etsy for unique items like fall wreaths, creative signs, and creepy and cute home accents, like crocheted pumpkin plushes or ghost nesting dolls. To foster the creativity of their community, Etsy also offers some really fun Halloween DIY ideas on their website.
