Nothing says scary like a giant spider's web, and this one, $10 from Target, is sure to cause a stir propped up in a window. Adorn it with spiders for the full effect, or, if you're really feeling creative, add in a skeleton for proper haunted house vibes. Note – this would also look brilliant strung up outside the entrance to your home, too.

5. Give a subtle nod to the season with these bat stickers

Prefer a more pared-back approach to your Halloween decor, but still want to get in the decorating spirit? Add these bat stickers, from Etsy, to your window for a nod to the season. They come in a pack of four in the same size or 14 in varying size – we love the latter for a more artistic effect.
