When it comes to Halloween decorating, the more pumpkins, the better. Especially if those pumpkins light up and are covered in colorful glitter.
“Glitter jack-o’-lanterns are so much fun and really set the Halloween scene,” said Ziska.
She recommended positioning these glittery gourds near an additional source of light to create a fun, twinkling effect.

Hanging one of these colorful signs is an easy way to show Halloween spirit.
“These hanging signs are ideal for adding a bit of Halloween magic to the interior of the house, such as in an entryway,” said Ziska.
She also shared that she has a simple strategy for keeping her holiday decor current.
“In spots in my house that are reserved for seasonal decor, I just keep a nail in the wall and change out the wall hanging for each season,” she told Insider.

Give your porch a spooky vibe with these cute mini lanterns.
These battery-operated paper lanterns are perfect for when you want to decorate your front porch but don’t want to mess around with extension cords.
“I love to line the path to my house with spooky lanterns like these to create excitement as people walk to the door,” said Ziska.
As these lanterns are made of paper, it’s best to use them somewhere that will stay dry if it rains.

Cover your home in creepiness with these faux spider webs.
Nothing says “Halloween” like a thick coating of cobwebs.

Dollar Tree’s 2-ounce packages of spider webs can be applied in fine layers for a more realistic look, or be draped in denser swathes across doorways and mantels.

DIY your own spooky wreath with this metal wreath form.
A beautiful wreath is a great way to greet guests. Dollar Tree’s metal wreath form, which measures about 14 inches in diameter, will help you make your own at a low cost.
“One of my favorite things to do in the fall is go foraging for branches, greenery, and leaves to create fall wreaths,” Ziska told Insider. “This wreath form is perfect for that.”
If you don’t want to go hunting for your own greenery, Dollar Tree sells faux plants and fall accents like these mini decorative pine cones.

Pick up a few of these creepy, crawly tinsel spiders.
Tinsel is pretty much guaranteed to add a festive flair to any space, especially if it’s in the form of this goofy hanging spider.
“I like the way this hanging spider would let you add interest to the higher spaces in your home,” said Ziska.
She told Insider she suggests hanging a few tinsel spiders from your ceiling at varying heights. You can also cut the string off of the spider decoration and nestle it into a patch of faux cobwebs.

You can also pair these candle holders with Dollar Tree’s flameless LED tea lights for a flickering glow that’s safe for kids and pets.
