It’s that creepy, spooky time of year again — time to pull out the Halloween decorations.

But if yours are feeling a bit…cobwebby, perhaps it’s time to shop for some new, unique and eerie trappings to make your yard that much more inviting (or perhaps uninviting!) for those costumed trick-or-treaters.

Here are some of the ghoulish best:

Harry Potter fans will love setting up these candles that seem to float in the air. The set of 12 comes with hooks to attach them to the ceiling along with a remote control. “They glow very realistically and appear to shimmer and flicker as well,” says one user.


Only the bravest trick or treater will be able to make their way to your door if you place this mat outside. While inexpensive, it will add a depth of horror to your front step. And if creepy clown isn’t your bag, there are many other macabre characters to choose from.


When costumed revellers come calling, they’ll be tricked into ringing this sinister doorbell. When the button is pressed, the eye opens and the lighted green eyeball rolls around. The doorbell also features a number of spooky sounds sure to keep them pressing it again and again.
