Skull art

In keeping with the skull theme, which also happens to be one of this fall’s hottest decor trends, we were instantly intrigued by these framed canvas prints featuring a Day of the Dead-inspired skull. These, too, can easily be incorporated into everyday decor, and also make a great accessory for Halloween. Skull art canvas framed print, Pottery Barn, $210.

Glittered pumpkins

Nothing says “Halloween” like pumpkins but this year, forgo traditional orange orbs for something with a little more sparkle. We love the idea of dotting a few of these glitter-covered pumpkins all around the house, or grouping several on a coffee or end table. Glittered pumpkins, Pier 1 Imports, $7.
