Halloween is one of the most fun holidays to decorate for; you can get so creative with spooky accents and pretty much anything goes. Plus, if you're a big Halloween or scary movie fan, it's your chance to really go all out and show your love for the season, whether you choose to decorate inside, outside, or both.

We're always looking for places to shop for cute and unique decor, and this one might surprise you. Turns out, Lights.com has a range of spooky yet chic decor that you can use to decorate your mantel, tabletop, windowsill, or even your front steps. And the best part? They all come in at an affordable price point.

From blood-red flameless candles with black holders, to skull and pumpkin accents, this is one place you need to shop for Halloween decor.

Skulls are a quintessential Halloween decor item, and this glass skull will be right at home whether your home's decor leans more minimalist or maximalist. It comes in two colors (though we're partial to the smokey gray color), and you can opt to decorate with it on its own or fill it with fairy lights for a spooky glow.

If you love candles but you don't love having to stock up on them every year, infinity wick candles might be for you. They're also a great option for decorating a mantel, so you can enjoy the glow of the flame without worrying about the safety of a real flame. Plus, these candles will never shrink, so your mantel display will continue to look just like it did the day you set it up. We love the dark and moody atmosphere these black and white marble flameless candles give off.

Velvet decorative pumpkins

Halloween decor doesn't have to be scary—these pretty velveteen pumpkins can bring a fall and Halloweeny feel into your space while still keeping things cheerful. The moss-green color of these pumpkins makes them the type of decor you can put out in September and leave up until Thanksgiving.

Lights.com Cecilia Small Candle Holders in Opal Black, Set of 2

Black taper candle holders

Lights.com

From the mantel to the dinner tablescape, these black candle holders are the perfect addition to your Halloween display. You can use them for both real taper candles and flameless ones, depending on your preference. Consider buying a few pairs to spread out for a dramatic and spooky display.

Lights.com Blair Ombre Glass Pumpkin, Black

Black glass pumpkin decor

Lights.com

If skulls aren't your thing, opt for this black glass pumpkin instead. Like the glass skull, you can place flameless candles or string lights inside, or simply use it as-is. It will work with both eerie displays and modern, minimalist ones.

Lights.com Infinity Wick Red 9" Taper Candles, Set of 4

Red flameless candles

Lights.com

White taper candles are great, but if you really want to amp up the scary factor in your Halloween decor, try these red ones instead. Paired with black holders they couldn't be more Halloweeny, but swap the holders for something more festive and they'll work for Christmas as well.

Lights.com White Berry Garland with 100 LEDs

Garland with LED lights

Lights.com

Garlands aren't just for Christmas anymore, although this white berry garland could certainly work for both Christmas and Halloween decor. Paired with a few spooky accents (like the glass skull and a few candles here and there) it would make a perfect Halloween display.

Lights.com Stella Lantern with Fairy Lights, Medium

Black lantern

Lights.com

This pretty black lantern can be used both inside and outside on a covered porch, and comes with fairy lights already so it's ready to go. The star-shaped cutouts give it a bit of a witchy feel—perfect for Halloween. And it can either be hung up or placed on the ground or on another surface, so it's a great multi-purpose decor item.

Lights.com Infinity Wick Matte Gold Candles, 3" Multipack, Set of 3

Matte gold flameless candles

Lights.com

Gold might not be the first color you think of when you think of Halloween, but why not add a bit of glam to your Halloween decor? Plus, matte gold and black are a perfect color combination, so pair the two colors and you've got yourself a simple Halloween display.

Lights.com Emory Brass Taper Candle Holder

Gold taper candle holders

There's something spooky about vintage decor, especially when paired with other Halloween-themed accents, and these taper candles are giving us a bit of a Victorian feel. Pair them with some black candles, and even by themselves they'll be a nice little touch of Halloween decor in your home.
