Decorating for Halloween is always a joy, but braving the crowds at Target or Michael’s isn’t for the faint of heart. That’s why we often turn to Etsy for our decor needs — not only do the items ship right to our door, but you also have a better chance of finding totally unique items that no one else will have. This year, Etsy’s Halloween Trend Report has some interesting finds. Even the houseplants are getting some horror-inspired makeovers this year! Check out all of the home decor trends and some of our favorite finds for each below.
1. Petrifying planters
If you’re anything like me, your window sills are crammed with succulents, cacti, and leafy houseplants that your cat treats like a gently toxic buffet. This year, plant lovers have been trying to get their little green buddies into the Halloween spirit, which searches for ghost planters, monster planters, and skull planters skyrocketing this year compared to last year.

4. Door Decor
Whether you’re trying to terrify trick-or-treaters away or lure them en masse (I can’t be the only apartment-dwelling person who patiently waits for exactly one trick-or-treater to knock on my door each Halloween…and yes, I give them King-size candy bars), your door decor has a big impact. Wreaths, doormats, decals – pick your poison.
