It’s that time of the year when we roll up our sleeves, get into the creative mood and make something so spookily wonderful that it sends chills down the neighbors' spine. And while you still have time to figure out what you are gonna wear for Halloween (or shall we stop pretending and just face the fact that we all are going to dress as the green-tracksuited players from Squid Game), the house interior and exterior can’t wait.
So in order to get your Halloween decor ideas flowing, we compiled a collection of some of the scariest and most creative endeavors that turned people’s houses into something that looks straight out of a spooktacular movie set.
From hyperreal zombie apocalypse exterior decor that would make my heart skip a beat if I was to pass by the house to a corpse edition “Woman Yelling at a Cat” staged in real life, the imagination is simply endless.

Bored Panda reached out to Black, the creator and editor of “Halloween Love,” a website for all things Halloween and horror. The project has quite a loyal fanbase on Facebook with 17k people tuning in for some spooky entertainment.
So we asked Black what Halloween decoration trend is really buzzing this year, and he said that he’s seen a ton of people buying “these giant, 12-foot skeletons.” In fact, the 12-foot Home Depot skeleton is selling out already ahead of Halloween and going viral on TikTok. Although the skeleton will set you back $299 if you're lucky enough to find one in a store, the resellers are listing them on Ebay for double, triple and even more than the original price. One listing sold the item for a whopping $1,200, making it a real sought-after Halloween luxury.

The good news is that making a unique Halloween decoration is not only about getting the trendiest props. Black said that “anything you actually make yourself is going to be inherently unique,” referring to the growing DIY culture of making spooktacular decor from scratch. “The only thing you can really get wrong is not having fun with it,” he said.
Moreover, if you’re wondering what Halloween props never go out of style, Black said “you can never go wrong with orange Halloween lights. I keep them up indoors year-round.” And when it comes to Halloween dress-up looks for this year, Black said that we can expect to see “A LOT of Squid Game costumes.”
