Swap out your lightweight summer throws for a knit blanket that'll have your living area ready for Halloween. It's made with soft, plush fabric and features a bright orange hue that's perfect for fall so you can keep it out all season long, not just for your favorite holiday. Place this throw on your sofa so it's there when you need to snuggle up with a warm cup of apple cider, or drape it over a wooden ladder as decor.
Even if you forgo the pumpkin patch this year, you can still decorate your mantel with one (or both) of these pumpkin candles. While they definitely fit in with Halloween decor, the candles are unscented. If you want the warm smell of your pumpkin spice latte to fill your home, we suggest pairing your pumpkin candles with these scented ones from Amazon.
You can never have too many decorative pillows, right? There's always room for one more, especially when it's this adorably spooky "Happy Halloween" pillow. The monochromatic colors will match the rest of your festive decor, and it's comfortable, too! Its soft cotton cover and thick fill makes it great for napping; just pair it with the blanket mentioned above for a complete Halloween-inspired look.
Bring the Halloween fun to your dining room with this skull salad plate. Fill it with candy or other small treats for a tasty centerpiece, or buy a set to give your table a stunning Halloween tablescape. Pair these plates with the rest of the collection from Crate & Barrel—like the skull table runner, dish towels, and small serving bowl—for a creepy-cool Halloween party.
Don't forget to decorate your front door for all to see with this Halloween wreath. Its glittering combination of leaves, pumpkins, gourds, ribbon, and twigs are sure to catch your guests'—and trick-or-treaters'—attention as they walk up to your home. This wreath would also look great hung inside above a sofa or in an entryway.
Halloween decorating isn't complete without some string lights to set the ambience. Whether you hang them up indoors or out, their battery-powered orange bulbs twinkle and shine all throughout the night (up to 160 hours). You can set a timer for when you want them to turn on and off, and the battery box is waterproof in case there's a little rain.
If you love the look of carved pumpkins but aren't a fan of the mess, opt for this mini galvanized jack-o'-lantern instead. Use it as a centerpiece on your coffee table, or have it shine in the window sill. Place your favorite pillar or battery-operated candle inside and watch it glow.
