It’s that time of the year again and I have some recommendations for decorating your house or yard for Halloween. While a lot of you would prefer to create some DIY decorations (and I have some suggestions for you in my Last-Minute Halloween Decorations post), most of you would be more comfortable with ordering decorations online.
To make it a bit easier for you I’ve created this handy list of my Halloween Must Haves for under $20 out there on Amazon. No need to mask up, brave the crowds and go browsing the stores in person – these can show up at your house with plenty of time to spare.
1. Fireplace Decoration
At just $7.99 (the same price as last year) this is a great item to add to your fireplace. Its full name is a “mantel scarf” – doesn’t that sound fancy? It can be a decoration all by itself or you can use it as a nice spooky backdrop for displaying other Halloween items. Don’t have a fireplace? Use it above a doorway or drape it over any other piece of furniture. Very versatile indeed.
2. Yard Signs
Beware of these yard signs! They will be a nice addition to your front lawn and set the stage for Trick-or-Treaters. Get three signs for $8.99.
How about scaring your visitors with a big hairy spider! Here is a very affordable option and it is 5 feet in size. You can bend the legs and pose this spider however you prefer. Did you see the creepy red eyes? At $9.95 it might just make sense to buy a couple of these, just saying 🙂
4. Spider Web
And if you have spiders, you must have these! You can never go wrong with using spider webs in your yard as decorations. At just $10.99 you get a whopping 1100 square feet of super stretchy spider web.
5. Bloody Weapons Garland
For just $14.99, you can also get a bloody weapons garland. Nothing says it is the scary season quite like some blood-splattered horror props on a string! To take this up a notch, add more fake blood and scatter some plastic body parts about.
6. Animated Hanging Skeleton
This is a sound-activated decoration with red LED eyes and a moving mouth. Add some batteries and you can hang (or hide) this guy wherever you would like to scare those loud Trick-or-Treaters! No scary price tag here – add this hanging skeleton to your collection for $16.95.
7. Halloween Ghost
This Halloween ghost with sound control lighting is just over 10 feet high and you can tie it to the front of your house or in a big tree (if you have one) and sit back and watch your visitors’ reactions. I love the simple design and how little space it will take up in your Halloween storage bin. And you can buy this one for just $16.99! A great price for a great decoration.
8. Skeleton Animals
With bendable tails and movable heads and jaws, the cat and rat skeletons will be a great addition to your decorations. Made from durable plastic they will hold up great outside but can definitely be used indoors as well. You will get both the cat and rat and it will only set you back $17.99.
9. Cocoon Corpse
Nothing says Halloween quite like a full-size hanging corpse. And even better if it appears to be wrapped in a cocoon! This one features a partially visible skeleton covered with white faux silk wrapping. The price tag for this fun feature is also $17.99.
10. Skeleton Ground-breaker
What an easy way to scare your friends or the neighborhood kids! Just push the stakes that are attached to the head and arms into the ground and you are ready for Halloween. And check out the expression on the skull! I can definitely see myself changing up his poses in the final days before Fright Night. Another $17.99 find, but hey, this skeleton will “stop them dead in their tracks”!
11. Halloween Fairy Lights
I know I’ve already listed 10 items, but this one was too good to leave off. Another solar-powered item that can be added to your front porch, mailbox or even in the bushes or trees around your house. You get 30 lights on 21 feet of string. Put up this $18.88 decoration and you have that instant Halloween feeling. Pumpkin lights for the win!
And that is my list of Halloween Must Haves available on Amazon for under $20 each! Order a couple or order them all!
