If you haven’t yet gotten into the spooky spirit, it’s time, because Halloween is officially around the corner. For those who need a bit of decorating inspiration ahead of the holiday, have no fear. The pros at Festive Lights have got you covered. 

The lighting retail specialists analyzed Pinterest data — more specifically, the most pinned boards and images related to Halloween — to figure out which festive decorations are making the biggest splash this year. With over 13,800 Pinterest searches worldwide for “Halloween decorations,” there’s plenty to choose from, but these are the most sought-after selections among the bunch.

Topping the list with an impressive 30,400 pins is the elaborate pumpkin arch, which transforms any doorway into a Halloween oasis. The pros at Festive Lights recommend DIY-ing by spray-painting your pumpkins white to give a ghostly feel, securing your arch with a special over-door hanger or a self-adhesive hook to avoid damaging your doorway or its finish.

Coming in second place with a cool 18,400 pins is a DIY skeleton hand candle sconce, which can be made by gluing a pair of skeleton hands to the base of a plate, with the hands cradling an artificial candle of your choosing. You can add extra eeriness by melting a red crayon to the top of the candle to give it a gory vibe.

In third place with 17,300 pins, a Halloween classic: floating candles, which are followed in fourth place (with 13,100 pins) by a super-easy DIY craft: Halloween candy glove treats. To make these, you’ll simply stuff some disposable white surgical gloves with candy, being sure not to overfill as you go.

Rounding out the top five with 12,200 pins are Halloween craft mason jars, which feature endless possibilities when it comes to DIY decorating depending on what you have on hand and your decor preferences. This versatile craft can be fun for Halloween lovers of all ages, and can be reused year after year if tucked away and stored carefully.
