Just because it's Halloween doesn't mean you have to treat your yard like it's the set of a horror movie! Stay original and keep things beautiful with Southwestern-inspired decorating ideas, which will keep your home looking pretty well into the fall season. Try filling a distressed crate with pumpkins (retro-inspired coolers work too!). You can also add a bouquet of fresh flowers to a plaid vintage Thermos, and paint pumpkins with Southwestern-inspired designs.

Of course, you can’t have a foggy atmosphere without fog liquid. Unless, of course, you’re going to wait for mother nature to serve up a cloudy ambience. Unfortunately, she rarely serves up fog when you want her to! Make sure you’re prepared to finish off your Halloween scene with a flourish on Halloween night. Bringing in a fog has never been this cool!

Get ready to scare up some screams! You'll love our scary yard decorations like zombies, witches, specialty skeletons, such as animals, pirates and even a mermaid, and so much more! We also have easy to hang, if you'll pardon the pun, decorations like the Hanging Scarecrow, the Severed Hanging Torso and the Giant Spider Web. If you're looking for the creepiest way to add a little ambiance to your haunted house, porch or Halloween party, look no further than our lighting and special effects department! From strobe lights, to metal luminaries and fog machines, we have exactly what you need to create a spooky scene.

Is there anything cooler than a fog machine? Okay, there might be cooler things. Anti-gravity chambers. Those mini hotdog machines that constantly rotate at a party. A padded cell with a trampoline for a floor. But a fog machine is definitely at the tippy top of the cool list. Whether you’re having a Halloween Dance or you’re scaring kiddos at a haunted house, your scene will always benefit from a little more atmosphere. Turn those regular Halloween decorations into scary Halloween decorations. Simply turn it on and watch the spook factor rise!
While hanging a full door covering can be difficult, making a mummy on your door is completely worth it. Bandages or paper tape can be used to create an opaque white sheet on your door. Black construction paper can be cut into a mouth and pupils for the eyes. White construction paper is used to create the corneas of the eyes. However, make sure you leave the knob and whatever locks are on the door uncovered – otherwise it’ll be a scary situation. The best part about this fun Halloween front door decoration is that the bandages can be as thick or as thin as you want them to be.
Get the inside of your home Halloween party-ready with decor such as life-sized witch cardboard cutouts, Halloween string lights, Halloween paper lanterns and even Halloween balloons. Dress your house with spooky party backdrops, pumpkin door covers, creepy spider webs and even lifelike spiders and rats. And when it comes to Halloween party ideas, we've got cute, spooky and even glow-in-the-dark drink and dinner ware. So don't lose your theme at the table - keep it going with goodies from Oriental Trading. Of course, we carry kid-friendly Halloween party supplies too - for those mild, instead of wild Halloween get-togethers.
Download this bat stencil, then trace the shape onto a piece of black craft paper and cut out the bat with scissors. Then, place the stencil back atop each critter you create and use a bone folder to make creases along the dotted lines on the stencil. Fold the creases opposite ways on each wing to make the wings 3D. Attach each bat to a long piece of string with tiny black clothespins.
The iconic striped socks in this decoration evoke memories of watching The Wizard of Oz with a bowlful of popcorn. Keep the memory of Dorothy and her band of misfit heroes alive with this colorful Halloween door hanger. To create a realistic look, you can stuff each sock with old newspaper, other socks or old T-shirts. Choose two different colors of tulle to create contrast and visual interest. Black and yellow works well, as does black and orange, or white and orange – dark colors provide greater contrast against the striped socks. Use a hot glue gun to hold each piece together.

However Halloween decorating doesn’t have to be so ominous.  Indoor/outdoor decorating is something the whole family can do together.  No matter how you decorate; whether it’s ghoulish and gruesome or more kid friendly with spooky skeletons and fun jack-o-lanterns, we have what you’re looking for.  In addition to carrying more Halloween costumes than anyone, we have one of the largest selections of Halloween decorations, props and accessories you’ll find anywhere online.  And if you want to learn more about the origins and history of Halloween props along with more details on the types of modern day props, check out our article on Everything You Wanted to Know About Halloween Props.

Make a big bang with a tumble of pumpkins studded like the starry bands of the Milky Way. Pick a few to be part of the inter- stellar arc, then hollow them out from below and punch holes in them using a drill and two different-size bits. Have fun with the placement of your planets and stars—random patterns have universal appeal. Arrange them with a few uncarved gourds, tuck battery-powered candles inside, and imagine a galaxy far, far away.

Can you really have Halloween without celebrating the major monster masterpiece of Stephen King? Our inflatable Pennywise decoration will be recognizable to anyone who was scared by “It" as a child. Cause come on, who didn’t sneak down and watch that movie while their older siblings watched it during a sleepover? Tie some red balloons all over the yard and set up your scary inflatable. Now you can be sure you’d have people like us running for the hills as soon as they see your setup!
This Halloween door decoration is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re imaginative, crafty and enjoy a challenge, then this decoration is just for you. Purchase a pair of mannequin legs and decorate with paint or cover with a pair of old stockings. You can get as detailed as you want with this project – from the shoe selection to the number of cracks in the wall – it’s all up to you. The plywood base is painted a matte black. Use foam core to simulate broken plaster – align to create a circle – and now you have the dark hole.
Sure, a jack-o'-lantern or two is nice—and certainly classic!—but haven't you already been there and done that? This year, it's time to step it up a notch in terms of both originality and spookiness. Whether you opt for something more traditional (think: a few painted pumpkins, pots of fresh fall flowers, and a fall wreath or two) or aim for something a little more advanced (a DIY array of festive lanterns could be nice, or a pair of eerie-looking "floating hats"), we can practically guarantee there's something on our list for you.
Using black paper or fabric, bats can be traced and cut out to decorate your front door. They can be put on the front door via tape or any other method that you like. A bat template can be found for free on a lot of different websites. Spiders can be created with Styrofoam balls. These are spray painted black. Black pipe cleaners are used as legs, and voila! These Halloween door decorations have a life of their own, and boy do they look the part. For something a little more cartoony, a different color can be used – which also creates an intense look depending on the colors used.

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.
When it comes to Halloween ideas, nothing seems to reflect the holiday better than barren trees with crows flying around. A removable tree decal can really help set the mood for the holiday. While decorated pumpkins and porch signs can create the mood, a large tree can really add a helping branch. Crow decals can add life to the tree, and stuffed crows on the banister of the porch can add even more to the life of the tree. If crows aren’t your style, fake leaves can be drawn on paper and added to the tree – which would then make a really cool party game.
This mix of geometric patterns, trendy colors and fun elements are SPOT ON.  So whether you are looking for Halloween decorations for your family or a larger event with friends ~ your tablescape is going to POP this year! Re-use items you have around the house, purchase items that are inexpensive to compliment what you have, order your centerpiece, and you’ve got yourself an amazing tablescape.  All gorgeous and semi-homemade!{score}
