Simply tie the eye-catching ribbon around the base of your favorite clear vase for an added pop of texture and color.

You won't want to hide these festive candles in a candle holder. These Día de los Muertos—or Day of the Dead—skull candles double as colorful Halloween decor. Place the candles on a decorative plate in the kitchen or on either side of the mantel so everyone can admire the intricate designs. The best part? You can enjoy the worldly candles even after Halloween, since the Day of the Dead is celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November.

Love the fall aesthetic but hate the mess that accompanies carving pumpkins? Represent the classic orange gourd in your decor without getting your hands slimy. A modern spin on the jack-o'-lantern, these metal pumpkin lanterns add a rustic flair to your Halloween decorations. Place a fall-scented pillar candle in the lantern and enjoy your favorite autumn aroma. Create a cozy, intimate setting in the backyard by lighting the lanterns at dusk, or place them on your front porch on Halloween night with a flameless candle. That way, trick-or-treaters can appreciate the ambience and you don't have to worry about a fire hazard.

Set the spooky tone for your household with a Halloween-theme wreath. If you prefer dark and haunting Halloween decorations, surround the Gothic-style wreath with dark colors and harsh lines. Or opt for a more cheerful Halloween aesthetic by offsetting the wreath with bright oranges and yellows. Hang the wreath on the front door to greet visitors with the Halloween spirit, or hang it on the mantel with orange-and-black string lights to celebrate the season.

Gourds may see like a basic Halloween item, but they act as perfect filler decoration. Incorporate these glittery pumpkins in your fall decor by placing them around the house in spaces that could use a little more Halloween feeling. Get a couple packs of the harvest pumpkins and make your own Halloween wreath. The best part about these decorations is that they're not Halloween-specific. Display them around the house throughout the fall season or arrange them as a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table.

Halloween is all about showing off personality, so skip the everyday candleholder and opt for this festive luminary. Buy several luminaries to light the trick-or-treaters' path to your front door, or keep one inside to complement other Halloween decorations. If the paper-bag style luminary etched with "boo" isn't enough to get you in the Halloween spirit, consider placing a candy-scented candle in the holder to build excitement for the holiday all month long.

Light Up the Night

String lights provide the perfect ambience, no matter which holiday you're celebrating. Guard against things that go bump in the night by hanging these smiling jack-o'-lantern lights. String the Halloween lights above the garage or in between trees in the yard so the pumpkins will appear to be floating when the sun goes down. The burlap material adds a homemade charm that is suitable for indoor use as well, so you can hang them on the living room wall or from the mantel.
