Decorating your home easily comes together with these popular indoor and outdoor Halloween decorations that are both affordable and stylish. If this is your first time making your home spooky for the holiday, the best place to start is with the basics. Quintessential indoor and outdoor Halloween decorations like bats, spiders, and witchy magic is a must.

While you're browsing, it's smart to think about what area of your home you're shopping for. For example, if you're looking to spruce up your front porch, make sure you get decorations that are weather-resistant and rust-free.

However, if you're searching for something that'll command the room indoors, like wall art, make sure it can be customized to your floor-to-ceiling height. Spider-themed picks like stringy cobwebs are also good, affordable options because they're lightweight, easy to store, and make a big impact without overpowering your space.
