The coolest Halloween decorations we’ve seen for the front of your house

The end of October will be here before you know it and that means it’s time to start outdoor decorating for Halloween. There are so many fun, spooky, and gorgeous ways to design your outdoor space, so it’s ready to welcome guests this fall and trick-or-treaters on the big day. We’ve done the homework so you don’t have to and found the coolest Halloween decorations that are must-haves this season. You’ll be the envy of your neighborhood with these exciting options.

Pre-lit broomsticks

We adore Latady’s pre-lit broomstick pathway markers. These are a fun, festive way to decorate your outdoors this Halloween, and totally versatile. You can buy a couple and frame your front porch with them, or buy as many as you want and line your entire driveway.

Why we love it:

  • Pre-lit for your walkway so people don’t trip and fall in the dark
  • In-ground stakes mean they won’t move with the wind
  • Easy to set up

Ghostbusters inflatable

If you just can’t pass by a good inflatable, Halloween is the perfect time to give one a go. With the new Ghostbusters movie coming out soon, $200 seems like a steal to have your very own Slimer right in your front yard.

Why we love it:

  • Everyone loves Ghostbusters, and the Ecto-1 is a perfect throwback to the movie
  • It self-inflates for easy setup
  • Includes in-ground stakes, so it will stay put in your yard
  • Kids of all ages will love this decoration

Life-size Pennywise

If you’re going for straight-up terror this Halloween, may we suggest this six-foot animated Pennywise from the movie IT? Target isn’t pulling any punches with this gem and for $250, we think it’s great (though we do not suggest placing it in a nearby sewer).

Why we love it:

  • It speaks phrases from the movie to really freak out anyone who dares enter your yard
  • It is sound and motion-activated, so no one is sneaking up on your this Halloween
  • It weighs just under 20 pounds, so you can move it strategically for maximum fright

Halloween tree

If there’s one thing that goes with Halloween it’s the Peanuts and It’s the Great Pumpkin. We’ve watched the movie since childhood, so why not pay homage to Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the gang with this adorable $135 Halloween tree from Hammacher Schlemmer?

Why we love it:

  • The characters illuminate
  • All the childhood favorites are represented
  • It would look perfect on a front porch table
  • It runs on batteries
  • Trees aren’t just for Christmastime

We hope you love these ideas as much as we do! They are all unique ways to decorate for Halloween with a nod to some of the greats who make it such a fun holiday to celebrate. So set up your decorations, grab some apple cider, and enjoy the fall festivities. Halloween will be here before you know it — just make sure you have enough candy for the swarms of trick-or-treaters that will be anxiously awaiting a closer look at your from yard.
