Halloween is just around the corner. For me, this means two things. Firstly, having “Monster Mash” stuck on a seemingly endless loop in my head. Secondly, wasting to much time window shopping looking online for affordable Halloween home decor. In my quest I’ve found some super cute and affordable neutral Halloween home decor items that I want to share with you all today!

16 affordable neutral Halloween home decor items

1: The Vampire Bats of Castle Barbarosa Wall Sculptures – Set of 2

I’m going to admit right off the bat (haha, get it, because they’re bats….never mind, ignore me) that I I honestly think bats are one of the cutest animals. If you want to procrastinate and have your ovaries explode from cuteness at the same time, watch this baby bat video.


I love the gargoyle-like appearance of these Halloween bat wall sculptures. They’re made with real crushed stone, which I think is pretty nifty! They’d look amazing on a Halloween feature wall or as an outdoor decoration.

2: Hosley 12″ High Clear Glass & Iron, Classic Style Lantern. Ideal Gift for Festivities, Parties, Weddings, Aromatherapy and LED Spa Settings

Lanterns are one of my favourite home decor items. They can be dressed up in so many different ways to suit the current season or holiday.

This lantern, made from real metal and glass, is a great neutral Halloween home decor item. It can be used as-is or draped in some fake spider web for an extra creepy look. Once Halloween is over, remove the fake web, add some holly or bells, and you’ve got yourself a cute Christmas lantern!

3: Design Toscano The Raven’s Perch Halloween Gothic Decor Wall Sculpture, 18 Inch, Polyresin, Full Color

I love using birds in my decorating in general and Halloween is no exception. This raven, made from quality designer resin, adds an instant gothic horror vibe to your Halloween home decor.

4: Readaeer Life Size Replica Realistic Human Skull Head Bone Model

Skulls and skeletons are one of those quintessentially Halloween motifs. This skull would look great on a shelf or mantlepiece, or as part of a Halloween vignette displayed on a tiered tray. (If you’re looking for a farmhouse-style tiered tray, check out this gorgeous galvanised tray or this rustic wooden tray).

5: Martha Stewart 30034328 Halloween Chipboard Bat Die Cuts Decor, Black/Gray

Another bat-related item because, well, bats are super cute. (Maybe I’m secretly bat woman and have a vested interest in promoting a positive image of bats to the world?)

With 9 in each packet, you could use these chipboard bats in any number of Halloween craft projects. Alternatively, you could stick a little blu-tack to the back of each bat then secure them to your wall to create some easy-to-remove Halloween wall art.

6: Factory Direct Craft Sculpted Look Wood Crow on Wooden Spindle for Primitive or Halloween Displays

7: IMOSA Halloween Realistic Handmade Crow Prop 3 Pack

Coming in a pack of three, these crows are another great neutral Halloween home decor idea! They have bendable wires on their feet to allow for temporary attachment to fences, furniture, branches, stair railings, or chair backs, meaning you can use them pretty much anywhere you want.

8: Stonebriar Rustic 12 Inch Wooden Candle Lantern, Vintage Wood & Metal Design

Another super versatile farmhouse-style lantern! Drape fake spider web over the top or place a small pumpkin inside for an instant Halloween look. When Christmas arrives, repurpose the lantern into rustic Christmas decor by adding tinsel or holly.  The lantern is made from lightly distressed wood, metal, and clear glass and can be used both indoors and outdoors.

9: Rattan and Jute 8 Inch Harvest Tabletop Pumpkin

Pumpkins are another one of those super versatile home decor items. They can be used for fall decor, as neutral Halloween home decor, and as part of your Thanksgiving decorating. Display this super cute rattan and jute pumpkin on your tabletop or mantlepiece for a country-style Halloween look.

10: Vintage Human Skeleton Patent Print – Set of Four 8×10 Photos Wall Decor – Anatomical Medical Art

Picture of four vintage anatomical medical drawings

Link / Price: $12.97

I’ve always found vintage medical drawings to be super creepy. Maybe it’s because I associate them with the “crazed doctor performing torturous experiments” archetype. In any case, these vintage medical prints would look great displayed together as part of a Halloween gallery wall.

I may or may not have squealed when I saw these adorable pumpkins. Look how cute they are! They’d look amazing paired with some autumn leaves as part of a neutral Halloween table setting.

Cast iron candlestick holders are a great way to add a gothic horror feel to your Halloween decor. What I like about this candlestick is that it has an adjustable length, meaning you can display it short one Halloween and then tall the next!

Picture of an assortment of skeleton keys in bronze

Though not typically associated with Halloween, skeleton keys have an awesome gothic horror vibe which makes them well suited to creepy decor! You could thread these keys on to a rope for a simple Halloween bunting, or use them to decorate candy bags. These skeleton keys come in a number of different finishes including bronze, pewter, silver, and copper.

15: Cast Iron Claw Foot Candle Holders in Antique Finish
