From needing to find Halloween decor to having to make sure you have some scary awesome Halloween ideas, it can be difficult. However, having quality decorations – or scary Halloween decorations – can be a real scare of a treat to make. It’s no wonder that DIY has become the cool thing to do for decorations for Halloween. From front door jazz and funky garage door ideas, there are so many different things that can be created on a $100 budget. Some can be created for even less, making DIY Halloween decorations a much more attainable goal for this year than it may have been in years past.

To eerily embrace the Halloween season, one must also embrace its history. The Celtic folklore believed the souls of the dead come back to life and walk among the living on Halloween night.  To make these “souls” feel right at home, many get into the Halloween spirit by decorating their homes and yards with tombstones, skeletons, ghosts and grim reapers. 


While decorating ideas can be difficult to come across, this spider webby idea can scare anyone. Window clings create a scary giant spider and web. Rat clings can be added to the bottom of the window or the screen door to show a better, scarier scene. The spider web can be created from a window cling or from the fake spider webs available around this time of year. DIY Halloween door decorations have a lot going on this one – the spider and its web can be created with window paint and a steady hand instead of store bought materials, or with tape.
For some, the best part about Halloween is decorating your home inside and outside. Whether you want spooky Halloween decor full of skeletons, blood, and gore, or simply want glitzy pumpkins to let everyone feel the Halloween cheer. We've got you covered!

There's no faster and more affordable way to transform a room. Wall, window, and hanging Halloween decorations are light enough to hang with tape or tacks, yet they easily fill a party space with color, a fascinating mix of textures, and visual weight. From kid-friendly pumpkin lanterns and fan garlands to six-foot long banners and creepy clown swirls, you'll find them all here. 
When the sun goes down, set a spooky scene with these dramatic lanterns made from simple supplies and our exclusive clip-art designs. Start by choosing one of the following templates—this creepy cat, this spooked feline, or a crescent moon—and cutting out the lantern template on the second page. Trace the template four times, side by side, on 24-by-36-inch heavy black paper. Using a bone folder, crease the sides of the template where they meet, and then cut it out. Print four copies of your chosen illustration out on onto vellum paper using a laser printer. Cut these pieces just larger than the frame "windows," and then tape the vellum into the frame.
Tempt your Halloween party guests with an array of candies masquerading as botanical or nautical artifacts. To begin, fill large glass jars with sweets, and then mark each jar with a label that sounds convincing—here, the meringues are "jellyfish skeletons"—while being completely made up. If you don't have a cabinet, you can create your own by arranging the jars in wooden cubbies or crates; we painted these a deep slate gray.
Make your entry room extra eerie when you set up a table to greet both guests and trick-or-treaters. Use a mantel scarf to start out your display and go from there. Arrange metallic pumpkins, skeletons of your favorite animals, and even a metallic skull or two. And don’t forget the lighting! You can choose from tall battery operated candelabras, a cracked doll head tealight set, or our cheerful lighted “Boo" sign. Whether you want your house’s atmosphere to embrace the bright and colorful autumn glow or make your home into spooky but sparkly lair, you’re sure to love scrolling through our décor options!
Halloween door decorations and ideas don’t always have to involve more than three items. White fabric can be taped to the back of the door after it has been wrapped around the door. Black paper or fabric circles make eyes. A mummy is a one of a kind thing, and the best part is that the front will look good, no matter how ugly or disorganized the back may look. Whether it is cartoony or as lifelike as possible, this is one of the best front door decoration ideas out there for a busy family that wants to make their front door ready for this ghoulish holiday.
From the window to the wall, you can decorate every inch of your home when you shop at Spirit! We offer a wide selection of Halloween window and wall decorations that will have your home crawling with scares. If you want your house to have a classically haunted style, then you can hang up some gothic portraits and a skull fireplace wall cling. Add some eerie music and maybe a pop-up coffin, and all of your guests will start to wonder if they've stumbled back in time and into a vampire's lair! And whether you dress up as the vampire or leave the creepy count a mystery to everyone is completely up to you.

Create your own creepy graveyard scene with our Halloween tombstones and outdoor cemetery decorations, all-weather outdoor Halloween decorations that are good for indoor use as well.

We don’t want to be biased. Well, we do sometimes, and we are. But we think that out of all the holidays, decorating for Halloween is the most fun! You can get as weird, funny, or spooky as you want. If you need a jumping off point for ideas, you’re in the right place. With our plans and products, you’ll feel excited to set the scene both inside and outside of your house.
What is it about Halloween that transforms ordinary people into seekers of anything dark and unknown?  Cemeteries by night, horror films by day and one of the most popular and oldest Halloween traditions to date - the haunted house!    A haunted house is defined as a building that is the center for supernatural occurrences or paranormal phenomena.  To create these chilling and disturbing effects when designing your own haunted house, you’ll need some amazing animated special effect props that are sure to terrify.  Here at Halloween Express, you’ll find the decorations and props needed that will give your haunted house the illusion that actors, animatronics, sound, lighting and other special effects bring to today’s haunted houses that make them such nightmarish venues.  A good haunted house should terrify, shock and disorient its patrons and then have them laughing at their own fears upon exiting. 
If you want the perfect jump scares, then consider an animatronic that's motion or sound censored. Imagine the look on a trick-or-treater's face when they reach for candy in a bowl on a dummy's lap, only for the creature to come to life when they get too close! Or have one of our "bump and go" animatronics roam around any room of your home, or down a long and ominous hallway. From twisted clowns and scary scarecrows to witches and horrifying zombies, our wide selection of Halloween animatronics means that you can find the perfect characters for your haunted home.
