    1. Iron candle holders that'll transform standard pillar candles into something you'd likely see in the Addams' family home.


    Get a set of three from Walmart for $22.65.

    2. And battery operated flameless pillar candles in a variety of heights to fill your house with a delightful (but spooky!) ambiance.


    Promising review: "These candles have been great. I love burning candles in the house but it gets expensive so I started getting these flickering fake candles. Then I became too lazy to get up and turn them all on and then turn them all off again and these fixed that problem. Use the remote to turn on, set a timer, turn off and it's soo much easier. I also like how if you set the timer for 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours the candles will turn on at exactly the same time the next day and go for the same amount time until you use the regular off button. I would recommend. They do require a lot of batteries so I ended up buying rechargeable batteries and in two months I have only had to change batteries in two candles and I use them about three times a week for at least 3-5 hours a night." —Heather

    Get a set of nine from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two styles).

    3. A skeleton flamingo lawn ornament your neighbors and trick-or-treaters will definitely get a kick out of., Amazon

    Promising review: "I like to 'surprise' my mom with holiday decorations. She never knows what she's going to wake up and find on the lawn. I bought these and was very surprised when she kept them! She even moved them into her annual pumpkin/cornstalk display. The summer pink flamingos now have a set of spooky goth cousins that will visit every Halloween." —Amazon Customers

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $35.99.

    4. String lights that'll leaf you feeling extra cozy while watching Hocus Pocus before your guests arrive.,

    Promising review: "I like these lights a lot! I ordered a single string, which was just great for the price, and then ordered another to make my mantle really glow. I could have ordered the two string option and saved money — take a hint! Anyway, the mantle looks lovely with three flameless candles and these realistic looking leaves. The cord is clear, so they look even more real. Happy Fall Decorating!" —Claudia G. Williams

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sets of one or two).

    5. A cast iron bat coat hanger to help you keep track of your friends' jackets as they enter your haunted house.


    Promising review: "I love this bat hanger! The hooks are quite small, yes, but they are more than sufficient for hanging all of my keys, which is exactly how I intended on using it. It came in perfect condition, no breaks or chips. It didn't come with screws to hang, but I had some lying around. I painted the screw heads black so they weren't so stark and noticeable. This piece was the perfect addition to my house." —Marissa Kelly

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

    6. An accent pillow that'll explain why your house is constantly in a state of disarray.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $35.99.

    7. Or a pillow case featuring a pensive skeleton sitting atop a pumpkin, AKA what you'll probably look like from now through Halloween.


    Promising review: "Great quality! The throw pillows that came with my couch measured at 17" x 17" with covers that don’t come off. This cover fit over it perfectly. Like a glove. The image on the pillow cover is crisp and easy to see. The quality of the material is excellent. Definitely a great purchase." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    8. A skeleton dragon you might as well keep out all year long in tribute of Daenerys' fallen "children."

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Oriental Trading

    Do I personally own one of these bad boys? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT. Have I had it hanging out in my living room since August? Also, YES. It folds up into itself so you don't even have to worry about storing it! Not into dragons? That's cool, you can also splurge on a skeleton mermaid or a skeleton unicorn!

    Get it from Oriental Trading for $39.98 .

    9. A lace spider web lampshade cover that'll transform your boring old lamp into one fit for Frankenstein.


    Promising review: "Love this drape. Good quality for the price and shipping was quick as well. Love the sheer ribbon that puts the shade together. Highly recommended for spooky lamps!" —Christina H

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    10. A 21-inch black jumping spider with illuminated eyes you can count on to scare the pants off of your family and friends — it even makes scary sounds!

    Spirit Halloween

    Promising review: "The jumping and attack spiders are the hit of my Halloween display every year. They actually scare more adults than kids. I started with one spider, then after seeing what a hit he was, I bought three more! They are going strong after three years. Best to anchor them if you can. Constant triggers cause them to migrate across the yard, sidewalk, etc." —kjs11607

    Get it from Spirit Halloween for $49.99.

    11. Paper lanterns anyone who dares to enter your home on All Hallow's Eve will go ~batty~ over.


    Promising review: "Super cute and easy to put together. I added some some LED lights inside and put the extra bats on the strings to take it to the next level." —Bianca

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $13.43.

    12. A stunning skull candle infused with glitter, evening primrose, heather and licorice roots, a must-have for anyone looking to take their Halloween vibes to the next level.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, The Astral Boutique

    I have this candle and it's almost too pretty to burn! However, when you do you might find a few more skeletal surprises lurking throughout ;). It smells fantastic and will surely impress any fellow Halloween-lovers that visit your home this season.

    Get it from The Astral Boutique for $15.

    13. Vintage-style wooden artwork you can hang above your makeshift bar for an extra spooktacular element.


    Get a set of three from Walmart for $13.32.

    14. Or a burlap haunted house runner that'll help you bring touches of Halloween to your nightly dinner or make for the perfect accent to a low-key gathering with your squad.


    This runner measures 14 x 74 inches, so make sure it'll fit on your table ;)

    Promising review: "Really love this runner. The burlap creates durability and love the overall Halloween rustic feel of the runner. Great for every day decor or perfect for party decoration." —Kelc

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    15. Lace cobwebs for your fireplace mantle (or really any other platform) that'll really tie the room together for any Halloween festivities.


    Promising review: "This I much more durable than I thought it would be. I’ll be able to keep it after this Halloween for next year! It has a cool pattern and it’s easy decor." —LisaT

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    16. An Oogie Boogie roulette chip bowl your indecisive friends can use to help them decide which snack they should devour first.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, shopDisney

    If you're a Nightmare Before Christmas fan, you need this bowl in your life. It's divided into four sections you can fill with various dips/chips for the ultimate Halloween party snacking experience. AND it really spins!

    Get it from shopDisney for $34.95.

    17. Pumpkin string lights that'll look absolutely gourd-geous in your house both during your party and all season long.


    This set is 9.8 feet in length and is powered by 3 AA batteries. It has two different modes (flashing and steady) so you can create the perfect ambiance for your party.

    Promising review: "These lights are great because you don’t need to plug them in. They are a fun decoration that you can put on a table, string around a door, or put inside a haunted house. I like how there is a mode to leave them on and a second mode to leave them blinking. The pumpkins are small and cute. I can’t wait to put them out for my Halloween party!" —paul s. chang

    Get them from Amazon for $16.98.

    18. A 9-foot tall inflatable ghost you can use to greet your guests and let 'em know you don't mess around when it comes to Halloween decor.


    Promising review: "We ordered this to replace a blowup we have had for years, and it is absolutely perfect! It is very tall and has a great look. All my neighbors love it. We just had a storm with high winds and it held up great! Would definitely recommend." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in eight styles).

    19. A Ouija Board cutting board to serve up delicious treats and maybe a few ghastly tricks at the same time.

    CardinalGift / Etsy

    Get it from CardinalGift on Etsy for $63.

    20. A 28-piece set of skeleton bones you can scatter around your home for a ~humerus~ display your guests will certainly appreciate.


    Promising review: "There are two hands, two feet, skull, jaw, two ribs, sacral bones (one piece), a small chunk of spine, two femur-type bones, and other miscellaneous pairs of mostly straight, skinny bones. The bones are not foam but are hollow plastic and have a small hole at one end of each (except the ribs I think were solid). They came in a mesh bag. I used them to make a wreath like you may have seen on Pinterest, or just google skeleton wreath and you'll see where I got the idea. This bag of bones worked perfectly for the project and hot glue seems to be holding strong. Great product at a great price." —M. Palasik

    Get it from Amazon for $29.90.

    21. An "Enter If You Dare" glowing sign that'll beckon only the most adventurous of your family and friends into your ghastly gathering.


    Get it from Walmart for $40.28.

    22. Or a hanging corpse in a cocoon you can count on to elicit actual terrified screams from your guests. Isn't Halloween just the best?!


    Promising review: "This corpse cocoon Halloween decor I bought is scary! The skull seems like realistic. I like that it’s not very heavy but long enough to be hung in our porch! The skull is well connected to the body which is made out of like nylon fabric and it feels sturdy too. There’s small spider sticking to the body as well that makes it more creepier! Overall I’m happy that I bought this on amazon!" —Ayanie12

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99.

    23. Decorative 3D bats to create fang-tastic vampire vibes throughout your home., Amazon

    Promising review: "These bats are so awesome! They are an excellent addition to our stairwell for Halloween this year. They are made out of a thin yet sturdy plastic that is shiny on one side and matte on the other (you can opt for either look, but I thought the adhesive would stick better to the matte side). They come with little adhesive tags that stick to our wall very well (we have untextured walls with latex paint). They also come in a variety of sizes and there are plenty in one order. " —Britt

    Get a set of 28 from Amazon for $11.99.

    24. A skeleton-adorned wreath featuring black and red fabric for an eerie take on a classic seasonal decoration.


    Get it from Walmart for $24.99.

    25. A portable fog machine that'll bring a graveyard-like vibe to your party — this may just be what you need to get everyone on board with recreating scenes from the "Thriller" music video.


    This machine doesn't come with "fog juice," but you can pick up a bottle on Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "I can't say that I NEEDED a fog machine. But I stumbled across it when I was looking for Halloween items. I just tried it out tonight and I can't tell you how much fun I had with it. Set up is as simple as plugging it in, pouring in the 'liquid fog' (sold separately) and away you go. The fog is summoned with a remote control — which makes sense given that you may want the machine to be hidden somewhere. Can't wait for Halloween now!" —Bill P.

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available with our without lights).

    26. Eyeball orbs you can count on to create an ~eye-catching~ display no matter where you put them in your haunted house.

    Oriental Trading

    Promising review: "A big glass bowl of orbs greeted every guest to our eccentric home. We can hardly wait to display them next season. They carefully packed right back into their cozy safe box." —RVelez

    Get a set of nine from Oriental Trading for $25.99.

    27. IV "blood" bags not everyone will know how to B positive about but'll likely drink out of anyways.


    Promising review: "Great quality novelty bags, perfect for our Halloween garage haunt. These are super easy to fill with various types of cold liquid. Easy instructions provided and a clamp for each bag is included to keep the liquid from escaping out the tube. Customizable stickers are added best after the liquid is in the bag. Depending on how full the bag is, it will change shape, so apply the sticker afterwards. I loved them so much I ordered a second set. This will be my go to item for our next themed idea." —Becky Cronis

    Get them from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in sets of 5, 10, or 20, each complete with a filling syringe).

    28. A bathroom door cover that'll tickle your guests' funny bones as soon as they discover it.


    Promising review: "I have had this up on my bathroom door for two years now and it is still in perfect condition. It is the perfect size to fit a standard door. It is definitely a conversation piece and we get asked about it anytime we have company. We are a big Halloween family so this is perfect for us. Whatever the skeleton is reading is mostly in another language and we keep telling ourselves we will translate it but haven't gotten that far." —Tony

    Get it from Amazon for $5.50.

    29. A glow-in-the-dark Haunted Mansion clock to bring the aura of the classic Disney attractions (and movie!) into your home.


    Promising review: "The quality is much higher than I expected. It is weighty, as someone else wrote, and keeps great time. The pads are easily adjusted to keep the pendulum off the sides. Personally, I would love an even smaller version. I love adding a bit of Haunted Mansion items discreetly about the house!" —FunMom2

    Get it from shopDisney for $80.

    30. And classic stretchy spider webbing, because no true Halloween party would be complete without it hanging from every nook and cranny.,

    Promising review: "This bag of fake spider webbing is huge! I own a 3000 square foot house and was able to place webbing on the entirety of the first floor for a party. This included placing webbing on both the back deck and screened in porch. Imagine an entire corner of a room filled from floor to ceiling and about 3' wide on either side and multiply that by 7 or 8 and that's how much webbing this is. I used clear push pins to stretch the webbing over and it gave the party a great effect. This does not come with little black spiders." —Scott Hutchings

    Get it from Amazon for $0.99+ (available in 200, 400, and 800 square feet).
