Get Creative With CREEPY CRAWLIES
Bats, spiders, and ravens oh my! Adding a grouping of creepy creatures and cobwebs to your decor is the easiest way to add spooky style. Cover your mantel, bookcases, or windows in a collection of cobwebs and accent with a cute but creepy oversize spider. Or add a frightful faux raven perched on a black spray-painted branch. And you can never go wrong with a pairing of playful paper bats on the wall or a gaggle of ghosts greeting guests at your front door.
Get spooky and sustainable. Save your decor in storage containers to use year after year (and keep it out of landfills).

MAKE YOUR OWN Pumpkin Patch
Nothing says fall quite like a pile of pumpkins on a doorstep. And we say the more the merrier when it comes to making your porch look like an actual pumpkin patch. Opt for a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors to give visual interest, and throw in some lanterns and festively fall mums to finish things off. Or for a more long-lasting option, line up some realistic-looking faux pumpkins and gourds on the porch, as a dining table centerpiece or an accent on a shelf or mantel.
To keep your outdoor pumpkins and gourds from rotting, rub vinegar on the surface.

BLACK & Boo-tiful
If you’re looking for decor that’s more chic than eek, dress up your space in all-black accessories. You can create a decadent and dark table setting, with a black tablecloth and linens, moody flowers, and black taper candles. Or try a spooky black wreath and black-painted pumpkins on your front porch or mantel for a more dramatic moment.
Invest in simple black accessories for Halloween, and you can use them all year round with your existing decor.
