Our Favorite Home Depot Halloween Decoration Picks
Animated Inferno Reaper
Last year saw a nationwide obsession with The Home Depot’s 12-foot skeleton, sparking a viral hash tag, Facebook groups and celebrity posts. Unfortunately, that skeleton is already sold out! But you can grab this animated Inferno Reaper to help fill your giant skeleton void.
At seven feet tall, he might not be as big. But he’ll impress your guests with integrated LEDs in the chest and eye cavities, motion activated speaking phrases and lifelike head tilts and turns.
Pre-Lit Jack-O-Lantern Trio
Create a welcoming pumpkin patch in your yard or entryway with this set of three jack-o-lanterns, lit with 50 LED bulbs. Each piece is constructed of a sturdy wire frame wrapped in soft fabric for a cute and fuzzy look. You can display them indoors and out, but the manufacturer recommends keeping them under a roof or overhang.
Jittery Jessica Creepy Reveal Doll
Ready to really freak out your guests? Don’t let the small size of this creepy reveal doll (new this year!) fool you. She looks pretty scary as it is, but when motion-activated, her quickly-revealed white cracked face and glowing red eyes give visitors a shock. The doll features an easy setup and requires three AA batteries.
Inflatable Photorealistic Skeleton with a Tombstone
This inflatable skeleton with a tombstone puts a new spin on Halloween inflatables thanks to its photorealistic design. Your yard will look especially sinister with this 10-foot inflatable looming over passersby. It includes an easy self-inflating setup, stakes to keep it firmly in place and energy-efficient LEDs for an eerie glow at night.
Happy White Ghost on a Spring
If your Halloween style leans more cute than creepy, you’ll love this happy white ghost yard decoration lit up with 40 LED lights. Set on a spring, the ghost sways and moves giving it a real ghost-like floating effect. The weather-resistant construction means this ghost can keep vigil rain or shine. Boo!
Animated Creepy Jack in the Box
Prey on your friends’ and neighbors’ clown phobias with this creepy jack in the box Halloween prop. His LED eyes glow with an evil stare, and the motion activated design includes a moving mouth with spooky phrases and a left-to-right tilt motion. Expected assembly time is 30 minutes (not as simple as some other designs) and you’ll need a plug for power.
Posable Furry Spider
For budget-friendly scary Halloween decor, check out this three-foot furry spider with red eyes. The legs can be bent and posed to best fit the location: crawling up the wall of the living room, or creeping around the corner into the entryway. Kids and adults will be delightfully terrified by this furry friend.
Inflatable Black Tree
This inflatable black tree with a light-up green face turns your yard into a forbidden forest. Its intimidating 12-foot height, flashing miniature LED lights and glowing green hands make it a fun and frightful decoration. Plug it in for easy self-inflation and keep it in place with the included stakes and tethers.
