It only takes less than a minute to turn your sweet little succulent into your worst nightmare.

Etsy seller ArtByBayley has created a set of decorative garden stakes inspired by Tim Burton’s 1988 horror comedy film “Beetlejuice”. Made to look like the fictional Sandworm, the stakes make it possible to get your houseplants ready for Halloween almost instantly. Simply stab them into the soil—while being careful not to accidentally stab your succulent—and there you have it. No repotting needed.

The stakes will look particularly seasonal alongside plants with menacing-looking leaves, such as a Venus Flytrap or an Aloe Vera, for maximum effect. A satisfied customer left a five-star review, saying, “I put them in an aloe vera plant, and it came out really nice.”

The stakes are hand-painted using acrylic paint and made with clay and galvanized nails. They come in different sizes ranging from 2 to 6 inches, so be sure to specify to the seller the size that would look best with your succulent.

With this year being so hectic and stressful, people have been leaning into holiday decorations, allowing folks to still celebrate the season even if normal activities aren’t possible. Halloween definitely isn’t canceled, so why not go all out with decor?
