Check out our favorite cheap Halloween decoration ideas to get into the spirit of this spooky season!



1. Jack-O'-Lantern Leaf Bags

If the first autumn leaves have already fallen in your neck of the woods, try this: Rake some into heaping piles, then instead of bagging them up like you normally do, pack the leaves into festive, bright-orange jack-o-lantern lawn bags. Hey, if you're going to be cleaning up outdoors anyway, why not do a little decorating in the process? Not only do you a save a little time, but you also stand a chance of getting your kids to help out with the lawn work for once! Available at Amazon; $5.25.


2. Cobweb Cover

If you’re planning a Halloween party, don’t let your kitchen table get covered with melted chocolate, sticky apple cider, or messy crumbs. Instead, create a protective barrier with this black tablecloth from Hyde and Eek! Boutique™. The spiderweb print contributes to spooky holiday-themed decor, while the waterproof surface protects against any spill. Available at Target; $5.


3. Bare Bones Decor

No time to carve a creative message into your hollowed-out pumpkin this Halloween? Decorating your front porch for visiting costumed Trick-or-Treaters can't get cheaper—or easier—than this set of gel clings that presses to your window in seconds. Since you'll apply them to the glass pane from inside the house, just make sure to adhere each three-inch black letters so that they appear backwards when viewed from inside in order to be legible to all who approach your door. Available at Target; $2.


4. Scary Spiders

Summon spookiness to a swath of decorative cobwebs hung over the entry or sprinkle something creepy on the drinks table at your next kid-friendly party. Wherever you need a dose of fright, these lifelike plastic critters will do the trick. Sold in a pack of 144 pieces, you'll have more than enough to display in the dark corners of your haunted Halloween house or to hide in a candy bowl for a scary-fun surprise. Available on Amazon; $5.94.


5. Hanging Around

While you typically wouldn't want to see a colony of bats hanging around your house, these paper bats are an exception. This bag of bats comes in a set of eight with strings and feather accents already attached. Give your visitors a spook by dangling the bats from chandeliers, ceiling fans, or wherever your heart desires. The creepy effect will make it seem like bats are swooping above your heads. Available at Cost Plus World Market; $9.99 for a bag of eight. 


6. Super-Stretch Spider Web

Give your porch or party room a creepy haunted-house look with Super-Stretch Spider Web. The web comes packaged as a soft 16-foot rope that you can spread out to cover up to 200 square feet. Attach it to trees, walls, or posts with tape or thumbtacks for a spectacularly spooky and spidery effect. Available at Target; $3 (also offered in a glow-in-the-dark version).


7. Black, White, and Ate All Over

Set a scary mood with this dark and devilish table runner that features black crows, laughing skulls in top hats and wicked witch silhouettes, all tastefully rendered in black on a white background. The 100% cotton table runner measures 14” by 72” and is machine washable. Available on Amazon; $8.99.


8. Jack-O'-Lantern

Paired with tea light candles, these black jack-o-lantern candle holders will illuminate a darkened window or table with their smiling grins. Measuring 5.5 inches high and wide, they’ll fit just about anywhere, adding delightful detail to your Halloween decor. Made from metal, these jack-o'-lantern candle holders won’t melt, but like all sources of flame, keep them away from little fingers. Available at Target; $10 for a 2-pack.


9. Burning Blood

What could be more freaky than black candles that “bleed” when lit? This 2-pack of taper candles will fit standard taper candleholders to create the perfect centerpiece for your Halloween dinner table. Alternately, use them for mantle or windowsill decor. Each candle measures 10 inches in height and will provide hours of spooky illumination. Available at Cost Plus World Market; $5.24 for a set of two.


10. Stick Together

Create the illusion of a bat cave with these flying bat decals. Die-cut from premium vinyl, they will stick to any smooth, hard surface and will withstand weathering if you decide to put them on outside windows. You’ll receive 24 different bats, and you can choose from small bats, up to 2.5 inches wide, or medium-size bats up to 5 inches wide. Available on Etsy; from $4.99.
