This Year’s Best Halloween Decor, From Classic to Frightfully Over-the-Top

With the CDC advising against trick-or-treating, Halloween looks a little different this year. At-home celebrations have become even more important, and that means that Halloween decorations (along with all the Halloween-themed movies Netflix has to offer) are essential to helping us get into the spirit of the season. If you’re crafty, consider conjuring up your own DIY Halloween decorations, but for those who prefer not to tackle homemade projects, we’ve curated a list of the best Halloween decor you can order online. No matter if your style is subtle and sophisticated or full-on haunted house, we’ve found the indoor decor and yard decorations to set the scene.
