Guys, this is not a drill. As of right now, Halloween is less than two months away and that means that it's socially acceptable to start decorating. If you aren’t looking to be the “creepy neighbor” by going all-out too early, or if neighborhood kids have done you wrong and stolen decorations in the past, there’s plenty of small, tasteful outdoor additions you can make right now to let your spooky spirit shine.
Not too scary and not too cheesy, the bright colors and simplicity of this rustic handmade sign make it the perfect addition to any entryway, inside or out. This isn’t your typical run-of-the-mill vinyl cutout slapped on some plywood sign either - each one is made-to-order and printed directly onto pine with archival quality ink so you can display it year after year without having to worry about any peeling or fading.

Window clings are a great starting point for getting in the spirit of any holiday (especially when you’re jumping the gun because of an itchy decorating trigger). Kids will have a blast moving the spooky bats and spiders over and over again while waiting for Halloween to roll around and anyone stopping in or passing by between now and then are sure to enjoy them as well.

I’m going to be frank with you guys, cutesy Halloween decorations aren’t quite my thing but there is just something about this door wreath that I absolutely love. Maybe it’s the bright purple and green burlap, maybe it’s the removable Frankenstein body parts or the adorable little smirk on his face and maybe it’s just the overall combination of everything. Whatever it is, I need this Frankenstein wreath and you do too.

Fill your entryway with the ambiance of a medieval castle no staves or flammable substances required with these flame effect light bulbs. Whether you want to line your walkway, spook out porch light for the season or swap out all the bulbs on your interior chandelier, these lightbulbs are a must-have. In fact, thousands of happy customers have commented on how realistic these LED lights are and plenty have posted videos so you can see for yourself.

Ok, so, this one is a little risky to put out so early because some punk kid could steal it before Halloween but if you know and trust everyone around your block I say go for it. Not only is this inflatable projection kaleidoscope spider awesome, but it’s also insanely unique and incredibly affordable. If you don’t know and trust your neighbors then this 53” spider decoration is scary as all get out and ugly as sin giving it a fair chance of not getting stolen. Whichever spider you choose, don’t forget the webs!

I remember being 100% wowed when I first saw a velvet pumpkin a couple of years back and I am so happy that they're still going strong. This set allows you to submit your four favorite color choices to the artisan who will then create them and ship them your way. These little beauties add some sweet sophistication to any decor whether they're displayed on a pedestal, tucked in with real pumpkins or placed on an outside bench.

First things first. If you're going to start decorating for Halloween you're going to need a skull or two in the mix. This incredibly realistic skull is on the smaller side (which is a good thing because it'll probably keep people from thinking you could be a serial killer) and perfect for nestling into a potted plant or teaming up with a pile of pumpkins for a little extra spooky. Or you could go all out with this 5’ tall Crazy Bonez Pose-N-Stay Skeleton.

If you have a bench or rocking chair in your entryway, a seasonal throw pillow is an easy and inexpensive way to add some color, cheer and a little extra cozy. I love how the muted grey background of this cotton linen throw pillow cover makes the patchwork pumpkins and simple messages of “trick or treat” and “Happy Halloween” pop.

A durable doormat is already a must-have for outside your front door so you might as well swap out whatever’s there now with something a little spooky. This scary spiderweb doormat is made of natural coir - a durable and coarse fiber that is naturally mold and mildew resistant making it perfect for outside - and backed with hard-wearing vinyl to help it withstand, well… being a doormat.
