The Cheapest Places to Shop for Halloween Home Decor

Want to get in the spooky spirit without breaking the bank? Check out our guide to wallet-friendly -- and still awesome -- Halloween home decor shopping online

It's finally October and you're fully prepped to get in the Halloween spirit. Check out our guide to the best affordable (and still kinda chic) places to shop online for Halloween home decor.

Cost Plus World Market

Typically a great bet for budget-friendly seasonal and holiday decor, Cost Plus World Market has an array of Halloween pieces that manage to look more homemade than mass produced. Check out these potion bottles, at less than $30 for a set of three, or these black pillar candle holders staring at $14.99.


We'd never forget you, Tar-zhay. Target is the jackpot of well-priced Halloween home decor. This imaginative steel and plastic battery-operated lantern would be great next to the door, or on a tabletop inside. Choose from a variety of sizes and motifs, like crow or spider, starting at $18.

Sur La Table 

Sur La Table isn't exactly known as a bargain-basement option, but it has such fun Halloween pieces at an affordable price point (and  quality you can expect to last for seasons to come). We love this $20 cake stand with hanging spiders to display your most creative (or no shame: store bought!) Halloween-themed confection.

Z Gallerie

We love how Z Gallerie's splashy holiday decor packs such a dramatic -- even sophisticated -- punch, which makes it a good value for the money spent. Take for instance these lighted branches, in either gold or silver, which come with five LED-light-wrapped stems for $19.95. Imagine how they'd pop as a table centerpiece or on a mantle -- in view of trick-or-treaters at the door!


Etsy's your place for great DIY decor. How fun are these $30 "witch legs" (really stuffed pointy shoes and stockings)? Or for only $8, scoop up these mouse silhouettes in card stock or reusable vinyl. 

West Elm

West Elm always manages to class up our home decor for the holidays. These little figures, which come in the forms of owls, spiders, or crows, start at $6. We love how they seem so playful and grownup all at once. This skull-emblazoned canapé plate has a similar effect for holiday parties.

Oriental Trading

If you're the type who likes to fill your yard with tons of ghoulish things each year, Oriental Trading might be your one-stop decor shop. For a Halloween-y but not too hokey effect, we like this $35 posable human sketelon. Dress him up in a costume, sit him on a porch bench, or impale him on your fence. Yeah, it's pretty grim -- but that's the point!


If you're looking for the basics, you'll like Kmart's well-priced staples like string lights in Halloween colors. Get a set of 120 lights on sale now for $8.49. (And while you're shopping, maybe you'll be inspired by the awesome collection of giant inflatables.)

Personal Creations

Go to Personal Creations to score customized holiday items, like this $24.99 black cat doormat emblazoned with your family's name, for an extra gracious welcome for trick-or-treaters and party guests.

Spirit Halloween

Looking for drama on your front lawn? Shop Spirit Halloween for affordable special effects, like this low-lying fog machine on sale for $64.99. Now that's an extra detail trick-or-treaters will report back to their parents on!


Amazon has a huge selection of Halloween decor at all price points, with many eligible for Amazon Prime quick and free shipping. For instance, we're pretty obsessed with these flamingo skeleton lawn ornaments. So whimsical, fun and kitschy.
