Everyone has their own style when it comes to Halloween decorations. For some, it’s classic, with pumpkins and other autumnal accents being added to tabletops, mantelpieces and other spots around the house. For others, the holiday offers up a chance to finally unleash their spooky sides, embrace the macabre and deck their pads out with everything from glowing orange lights to fake cobwebs—and so much more.

As one shopper points out, you can also just as easily put this 4.3-star rated doorstop under a hedge and let someone’s fevered imagination do the rest. Even better, because these hands are made of a durable plastic, you can resurrect this piece of décor for many Halloweens to come.
6. Less than $50: An eerie Halloween tree
You don’t have to be a fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas to think that trees and Halloween go together. If you love the idea of blending your two favorite holidays, you’re probably gonna love this RJ Legend 9-inch Halloween ceramic tree.

It’s alive! This Frankenstein light switch cover, which you can pick up at Etsy for almost $3 off right now at $11.50 instead of $14.38, is the kind of deal we love to see around the holiday season. This 3D-printed creation is designed to fit most outlets and can easily replace your current wall cover. Much like the big guy himself, it consists of a few pieces, including a lever that you can pull up or down to simulate that iconic moment that got the famed monster up and moving.

Looking for a boo-tiful decoration—or three—to make your backyard seem more ominous this October? Right now at Party City, you can buy three select props for $12. Considering each of these ghastly spectres regularly retails for $4.99 apiece, you’ll be saving 20% for three, which would normally shake out to $14.97.
