Halloween is creeping around the corner so it's time to get your decorations before they disappear! Whether you’re an online shopper, vintage collector or the crafty type, these nine solid decorations will pay for themselves by lasting through many years of Halloween fun.
Ghost Window Crasher
Create the illusion of a 20” ghost flying through your window. This adorable intruder uses three AAA batteries to make his backside wiggle as if he’s trying to work his way through. This ghost window crasher comes with a cracked glass static window cling. No one will mind this cute little guy crashing their party.
Skeleton Groundbreaking Hands
These aren’t your usual dirt raising skeleton hands. These skeletons went peacefully and are sending signs of peace and love. They are made of sturdy resin with flat bottoms for easy placement.
If you find that many of your favorite Halloween decorations have sold out, don’t panic, just create your own. Birdcages are available in a variety of stores. You can find them online and in department stores. Rough it up with sandpaper and spray paint it black or any color that will lift your spirits. Fill it with your choice of black crows, pumpkins, skeleton animals or faux fall leaves. Add battery tea lights for a sparkling glow.
Ceramic Carved Pumpkin for Fireplace or Firepit
Create the ultimate cozy Halloween atmosphere with the glow of jack-o-lanterns in your fireplace or fire pit. These ceramic carved pumpkins are reusable, therefore making them cost-effective. Heat is stored and slowly released to warm you up and help with energy costs when used in an indoor fireplace. They are eco-friendly with no harmful toxins. Flames show through the carved face giving that classic Halloween look.
Unless you're buying in bulk, pumpkin pails are store pick up only. Fortunately, before Halloween, they can be found almost everywhere! Fill with fall flowers for daytime color and use a battery tea lite to glow at night. Make this pumpkin topiary for Halloween then turn it around to hide the faces and you have instant Thanksgiving decor! Two holidays for one, now that’s a deal! Click here to learn how to make it.

Cinnamon brooms = Witches Brooms

Halloween Scented Candles
No matter what your decor preferences are, Halloween scented candles will add the finishing touch. The scent sets the mood and the glow is spellbinding. The cute labels are a decorative bonus. And don’t be frightened, Goose Creek candles are made with non-toxic ingredients so you can breathe easy.
