It’s never too soon to start preparing for the best holiday of the year—which is Halloween, of course. And whether you’re planning a Halloween party or a haunted house, we have good news for you: Target’s Hyde & EEK! Boutique has created a number of incredible decorations and props that will help take your shindig to the next level. Here are a few of our favorites.
1. Light-up Pumpkin
Let's start with the classic symbol of Halloween. If you love the carved pumpkin look but don’t want to deal with the mess of actually carving a pumpkin, consider this 5-inch-tall prop, which lights up. At just $5, it's wallet-friendly. There’s also a version with pointy teeth, and a 9-inch version in teal.
2. Animated Light-Up Pumpkin Decorative Halloween Prop
For a more interactive version, check out this pumpkin, which—in addition to lighting up—emits spooky noises when motion activated.
3. LED Skull Plasma Ball
This steampunk-esque skull is perfect for the mad scientist space in your haunted house. Those brave enough to touch it will see a plasma filament reach up to meet their finger.
4. Crashing Witch
This quirky witch adds a little levity to your Halloween decor. The 9-inch-tall figure can lay flat against a door or wrap around a column either indoors or out.
5. Life-sizeD Skeleton
6. Werewolf Skeleton
Human skeleton just too boring? Try this werewolf skeleton, which is just over 5 feet tall.
7. Victorian Style Telephone
This phone looks old-fashioned, but motion will cause it to ring—and when you pick up, a voice states, “I know who you are!” followed by a creepy laugh.
8. Eyeball Wreath
Trick or treaters will know your house has the best candy when they see this eyeball wreath, which uses orange LEDs to create a creepy glow.
9. Opera Singer Tombstone
If you want your Halloween decor to belt out a few tunes from the beyond, there’s this animated opera singer tombstone prop, appropriately named Ophelia Payne. This unique decoration uses motion sensors to know when to sing a ghoulish tune for unsuspecting trick-or-treaters.
10. Pumpkin Halloween String Lights
Sometimes you just want to go back to basics, and these pumpkin string lights are as simple, yet effective, as they come. Each set comes with 20 toothy jack-o’-lantern lights, perfect for adding classic Halloween ambiance to both indoor and outdoor displays.
11. Tree Decoration
Make sure to leave no area of your property undecorated with this face and arms kit that turns any tree on your property into a spooky Halloween display.
12. Punny Tombstones
Add some laughs to your Halloween display with a foam tombstone prop crafted in the memory of a poor departed soul named Ben A. Live. At 36 inches tall, this punny piece of spooky decor also sports a grinning jack-o’-lantern at the top to cap off the lighthearted decoration. If you want more than one punny tombstone, grab this one for Imma Gardner. You can round out your display with this set of cemetery props, which contains 18 pieces.
13. Serving Tray
You can’t serve snacks at your party without a seasonal tray, right? And this one is as classic as it gets, with a trio of jack-o’-lanterns ready to add the requisite scenery to your Halloween shindig.
14. Eyeball Halloween Candy Bowl
If you’re looking to keep a far more literal eye on your candy hoard this Halloween, this bowl has got your back. Whenever anyone reaches in and tries to snatch up that candy bar you’ve been saving for yourself, a motion-detecting eye will open up and growl “I’m watching you!” at the unsuspecting thief.
15. Trick-or-Treat Painted Halloween Pumpkin Bundle
This three-pack of foam pumpkins come decorated for you in various sizes and colors—just set them out to add more life to your Halloween-themed festivities.
16. Talking Skull
Don’t be all doom and gloom this Halloween. This talking skull will start telling jokes when it senses movement—and because it’s battery-operated, it can be placed wherever you think it’ll entertain the most guests.
17. Inflatable Dragon
This huge, 6-foot-tall inflatable dragon is perfect for any Halloween-themed Game of Thrones display. It's equipped with LEDs, so it's just as effective at night as it is during the day. (There's also a dragon skull that looks like it came straight from the cellar of the Red Keep.)
More into dinosaurs than dragons? Try this 9-foot-tall costumed T. Rex.
This motion-activated zombie plays creepy music, groans, and turns its head when someone walks by, its single flashing eye constantly on the lookout for BRAINS.
19. Monster Boombox
With a fiendish face and catchy song, this monster boombox is just the type of decoration your Halloween party needs to make it truly unique.
20. Rotating Skull Projector
Disco balls are so over. For Halloween, try this LED-equipped disco skull.
21. Skull and Crossbone
Spooky decor doesn’t get much more classic than the skull and crossbone, and with this light-up version affixed to your wall, you can bring a timeless charm to any Halloween theme you’ve got your eye on.
22. Reaper Skeleton
This skeleton reaper gives the perfect Halloween greeting to trick-or-treaters as it lets loose a horrifying wail and rattles its chains.
23. Giant Spider
Hang this creepy, hairy monstrosity from the ceiling to give everyone a fright. Suitable for display both indoors and outdoors.
24. Alarm Clock
Creatures of the night will agree: There's nothing scarier than getting up in the morning. This novelty alarm clock pops open to reveal a monstrous face within. It’s more cartoony than frightening, and perfect for anyone looking to throw a fun Halloween bash for all ages.
25. Animated Succulent
Add some potted terror to your Halloween with these “Blood Succulents” that will be right in line with the season as your dining room table centerpiece or displayed on a windowsill.
Just set this battery-powered skeleton fishbowl on a table to add a fun layer of character to your Halloween decorations. The two fish will swim along, among the flowers, tombstone, and skull in the bowl. And because the display uses batteries, you can move it wherever you want.
27. Crow’s Feet Serving Glass
Containing both the bowl and the creepy crow’s feet holder, this display is a suitably fiendish way to serve candy this year.
28. LED Computer
Your guests will think you haven't updated your computer in ages when they see this prop, which is straight out of the '80s. Motion triggers it to fire up and reveal a talking skull, which warns your visitors about mice.
29. Dug Up Coffin
Inside this 2-foot-tall coffin—which appears to be broken—is a skeleton that wakes up and glows green when people walk by. But he's more silly than spooky: He complains that they "don't make coffins like they used to" but is excited to "have a window now!"
30. Cat and Pumpkin Lantern
Keep your seasonal decor cute with this lantern, which has cat and pumpkin cut-outs against an orange insert. It's battery-operated, so you don't have to worry about a fire hazard.
31. Animated Black Cat Statue
This motion-activated kitty statue meows, yowls, and hisses just like the real thing.
32. Apothecary Jar
Place the Transformation Potion Apothecary Jar on your bar cart for a subtly spooky touch.
