Spider webs strewn across the mantel typically call for a duster, but we'll allow this glimmering orange and green home for eight-legged creatures to stay. The best part is that its little orange bulbs glow, so you'll need to hang it near a power outlet.

If we didn't know better, we'd say this felt garland was modeled in Casper's likeness. The ghosts are brimming with delight and the pom poms add a playful touch. Who said October 31st had to be so scary? We have to disagree.

The typical red lights and green tree branches for Christmas have been treated to a Halloween makeover, but we have to say, the black and purple combo is particularly welcoming. This pick is a little bit larger than other garlands, so save it for a roomy space.

Whatever is old is new again, and those who particularly love what TikTok thrifters are showing off will certainly appreciate a retro-styled Halloween accent. Note that it will take the creator of this handmade gem up to two weeks to make and ship the product, so if you're planning an order, get on it!
Where can I put my Halloween garland?
The sky's the limit, folks, and a little creativity goes a long way. While garlands are typically hung over mantels or windows and wrapped around staircases (should space permit), they fit in just about anywhere: over the living room dresser, hanging around an interior doorway, draped over a bookcase or mirror, etc. You could also use your garland for a table accent if you're hosting a spooky celebration.
How do you style a garland?
There's no right or wrong way to style a garland for the spookiest time of the year. You can have it floating over your other Halloween decor buys or leave it hanging above a vase of seasonal florals for a botanical touch. And hey, if it goes over your everyday collection of photos and trinkets, so be it!
What can I use instead of garlands?
If a garland isn't your thing, string lights provide a similar splash of color and texture as garlands, but these have a glittering and glowing end result!
