Halloween is one of the best opportunities for festive decorating. While Christmas decorations can be fun and spread cheer, the best Halloween decorations offer a greater opportunity for individual creativity. This is partly thanks to Halloween’s range of memorable horror movies and the plethora of scary and villainous characters, Halloween-related and not, which can also be called upon. The best Halloween decor lets you use your imagination and creativity. So, go ahead, be that house on the block and decorate your home the way you always wanted to as a kid (two words: fog machine).

Unless you were lucky enough to snag one of The Home Depot’s famous 12-foot-tall skeletons before they sold out, you’ll need to buy a few different pieces of Halloween decor to get in the proper spooky spirit. Below we’ve rounded up the 38 best Halloween decorations available to order online. You’ll find items that are easy to get out of the loft when Halloween comes around and others that may be subtle enough to be used elsewhere year-round.

1. National Tree Company Animated Halloween Hidden Face

BEST OVERALL

If you want to turn up the terror, one of the easiest ways is with the ultra-scary National Tree Company Animated Halloween Hidden Face. The battery-operated decoration looks like a standard mirror. Still, thanks to its sound and noise activation features, the mirror will make a shattering glass sound when it detects movement, and a ghostly face will appear before emitting a scream. The scream comes from the mirror, but it may also come from you and your guests.

2. Home Accents Holiday LED Halloween Moonlit Mansion Rubber Light and Sound Door Mat

BEST INTERACTIVE MAT

The Home Accents Holiday LED Halloween Moonlit Mansion Rubber Light and Sound Door Mat looks like a charming holiday mat until guests step on it and activate the LED lights and spooky soundtrack. The mat is battery-powered, making it easy to place at any entrance. A fun feature for trick-or-treaters or party guests, it also has an on/off button, which is great news for your delivery person who doesn’t need any extra frights on their route.

3. Halloween Bats Peel and Stick Wall Decals

BEST DECALS

Would it be weird to keep the Halloween Bats Peel and Stick Wall Decals up year-round? They’re that cool. The reusable decals can be placed on painted walls, windows, furniture, appliances and more. When Halloween is over, remove the non-marking decals and put them back on their decal backing sheet to use again next year.
