paper bat over a fireplace

Paper bat are one of our all-time favorite decorations, as you can place them literally anywhere and everywhere in your home (here’s a pack of 30 bats if you want a value package!).

They are a snap to set up and take down (usually a small tape donut off masking or duct tape will keep them up during the season).

You can use these over and over and just store them together in a ziplock bag when not in use.

Frequently Asked Questions About Halloween Decor

How do you decorate for Halloween on a budget?

Focus on items that can be reused so that you end up with all the primary decor you want and you can just store it and use it again (for free!) the next year.

You can also check thrift and vintage stores around Halloween as they bring out their seasonal decor at that time, or shop the post-Halloween sales to find treasures to use next year.

Can I use Halloween decorations outside and inside?

Items that are more fragile (like paper) should only be used under covered outdoor areas and may not remain fully intact after the season is over.

More robust items (like plastic) can generally be used outside, but make sure any plug-in or lighting elements are outdoor-rated if you’re using them in an uncovered space.

How do I attach things to a brick/stone house?

If you don’t mind some small holes, you can put small nails in the mortar area of ​​a brick or stone front. If the item is heavy, you may need to drill along a brickwork and use a concrete screw that can hold more weight.

And if you don’t want to make/repair any holes, look for flat areas of wood trim or siding that you can attach a command hook to instead, or just hang things from the door frame.
