Spooky Halloween Décor at Goodwill

If we are “creeping” it real, it is not ideal to spend a lot of money on Halloween décor, especially when the two biggest holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) are right around the corner. If you’re struggling to find affordable spooky decorations, Goodwill is the perfect one-stop-shop for all things DIY from pumpkins, outdoor cemetery pieces, ghosts, webs, spiders and more. Allow us to inspire you with a few eerily inspiring ideas for your home or office!


The go-to Halloween décor item is, of course, pumpkins! Pumpkins are great to decorate for Halloween because you can easily leave them up for the remainder of the fall season. At Goodwill, you’ll find no shortage of pumpkin variations for décor, DIY projects, styled photoshoots and more. You can buy them in different colors, patterns and textures to add variety throughout your home. Get creative when decorating your pumpkins by using materials that you already have lying around the house, such as paint, Sharpies, colored pens, ribbons and craft supplies like googly eyes.
