The one Halloween decor trend that we’re seeing *everywhere* this year? Skeleton animals of all kinds. The trend includes just about any creature you can imagine, and this quasi-cuddly tchotchke offers a frightening decorative touch that’ll keep your actual Frenchie from using it as a chew toy (hopefully).
Taking “creepy” to the next level, these mountable candles make it look like zombies are emerging from your walls. Each order comes with one hand, mounting screws and one LED wax-like candle. Plus, the hands mount easily with a cutout for the included drywall anchors, and they can be activated with two AA batteries.
There are skeleton Halloween decorations, and then there’s Skelly, the 12-foot-tall skeleton with piercing blue, LCD-screen eyes, who’s developed such a fandom he sells out almost instantly, despite his $299 price tag.
Speaking of skeletons, this isn’t your ordinary set of string lights. This set of four skulls creates the illusion of hanging from mid-air, and each one lights up with an eerie glow that will easily knock someone's socks off. Oh, and did we mention that it has a six-hour timer feature?
Yet another Halloween decorating trend that’s raging in 2022? Supersized skeletons, ghosts, werewolves and mummies. Indeed, every company, from Home Depot to Lowe’s to Sam’s Club noted demand for giant decor—and this 6-foot-tall Michael Myers is so realistic, we can’t promise it won’t send trick-or-treaters running for the hills when its hand-with-knife moves up and down as spooky "Hallo Ween" music plays.
If you want to take things to the next level, you can revamp your garage doors with this head-turning mural.
This is just what your lawn needs to turn heads this Halloween. This terrifying doll has a glowing head that will ask, “Don’t you want to play?” as he crawls across the floor. He’ll also say things like, “Come closer” and “I got a secret,” turning your house into a fright fest for anyone who dares to approach it.
ICYMI, checkerboard patterns are *the trend* of 2022. Bring the look into spooky season with this trick-or-treat pumpkin topiary by MacKenzie-Childs. Not only does it include a trendy checkered base, but it’s stacked with a trio of hand-painted capiz pumpkins and accented with the words ‘trick or treat’ fashioned in twisted metal.
We bet no one on your street will have this fire and ice dragon inflatable. It has a blower that automatically inflates, plus it features two built-in LED lights and one flame light to create a flashing red effect on the dragon's abdomen.
Equipped with two posable arms and legs that feature prongs you can easily stick into real or faux pumpkins, this wire set offers an easy (and eerie) touch to your front door’s vignette. Not to mention that it bends at the knuckles, wrists and knees to instantly give your pumpkin a creepy vibe and bring it to life.
If you’re looking to make the ultimate entryway statement, this is how it’s done. This inflatable haunted house is sure to make a statement with an 8.5-inch display that inflates with an external blower (included), along with internal lights that create a glowing nighttime display.
Perfect for anyone who wants to channel their inner Walter White, this misting lab beaker has a base shaped like an open-flame burner that creates an eerie green glow. What’s more, it features sound effects and illumination that activates with the push of a button, and a "Poison" warning label on the front for an extra punch.
