Halloween is just around the corner, which means you'll be seeing fake graveyards, hanging ghouls, and creepily-carved pumpkins all over the place throughout October. If you're truly obsessed with Hallow's Eve, it may be time to up your haunted house game by ditching the dingy plastic decorations that have sat in storage for the last year. Instead of going with the same plastic pumpkin, or fake fingers in the punch bowl, Etsy can help you get terrifyingly creative: The site for creators has a ton of spooky, one-of-the-kind decorations that will set your Halloween decor apart. These spooky fall decorations you can buy on Etsy are just the thing to make your apartment look like an extra set on Hocus Pocus — in a chic way, of course.

Considering the history of Halloween, it's no wonder this popular holiday gives most people goosebumps: According to ThoughtCo, Halloween was birthed from the sacred festival Samhain — an annual Celtic holiday that was believed to be the day that the dead and otherworldly creatures (think demons or fairies) could communicate with the living. While this may be too freaky for some, other people love to get into the original holiday spirit.

Whether you're planning a Halloween bash, or just preparing for trick-or-treaters on the devilish holiday, Etsy has a number of decorations sure to get you a few genuine jumps and second glances from guests who visit. Here are 13 seriously spooky decorations you can buy that any — and every — Halloween lover needs.
