When it comes to Halloween decor, you either go big or go home—literally. And while it might sound strange to think about skeletons and ghosts in the beginning of fall, given how the pandemic has seemingly slowed time and there’s a general feeling of restlessness in the air, thinking about over-the-top Halloween decor is keeping us going at the moment—especially when that viral 12-foot skeleton is back.

Why would you ever want a regular human-sized skeleton instead of a towering 12-foot skeleton complete with a burning pumpkin head? Or tiny critters when you can drape a 16-foot wide web with house-sized spiders around your space?

Ahead, 11 oversized, extra-large, gargantuan, just plain big pieces of Halloween decorations to turn your home into a total funhouse.

1. Home Accents 12 ft Giant-Sized Skeleton with LifeEyes LCD Eyes, $299

Ah, the 12-foot skeleton that started it all. The beloved battery-powered skeleton can be posed and positioned however you want, and has LCD eyes that move and blink. It was all we had during a tumultuous 2020, giving us so much joy and humor when there was none, and now, it’s baaack—well, kinda. It was available mid-summer when The Home Depot dropped its line of Halloween decorations, but it's been sold out for a while. However, it may become available again, so check the site often.

2. Home Accents 12 ft Giant-Sized Inferno Pumpkin Skeleton with LifeEyes LCD Eyes, $349

If you’re looking for something even more intense than the OG skeleton, or maybe even as a spooky friend, The Home Depot has a pumpkin-skeleton hybrid with a fiery torso and mouth, movable arms, and sculpted details for an even scarier look. And yes, it’s still 12 glorious feet tall. And yes, it's still sold out but it might become available again soon.

3. Home Accents 5 ft. Hanging Plastic Posable Skeleton with LED Eyes, $29.99

While much smaller, this 5-foot-tall skeleton is readily available and still packs a spooky punch at a much more reasonable price. You can bend it into a bunch of different poses or hang it up.

4. Pre-Lit Broomstick Pathway Markers, Set of Three, $129

Line these 4-foot-high broomsticks to make the perfect entryway to your space. With three feet of space between each one, it'll be super dramatic and fun for trick or treaters. Or you know, the mail carrier.

5. Disney Halloween 6.5 ft. Coco Miguel with Guitar and Dante, $99

Kids and adults will get a kick out of this oversized inflatable featuring Miguel and Dante from Disney's Coco. You may just hear the faintest whispers of "Remember Me" at night...

6. Home Accents 80 in. Giant-Sized Animated LED Dark Angel, $279

Not content with extra-large skeletons with blinking eyes? This dark angel’s wings will flap, turn its head, and glow thanks to LED lights when it senses movement nearby—perfect for scaring your unsuspecting neighbors. It’s “only” about half the size of the skeleton at a smidge more than six feet tall, but it’s not small by any means.

7. OCATO 200" Halloween Spider Web + 59" Giant Spider Decorations, $27.99

Larger than life at more than 16 feet wide at its widest, this oversized web—complete with spiders that look like your worst nightmare—can be hung up anywhere. The web comes with a hook and stakes for security and easy assembly, and the spider's legs can be shaped every which way for the spookiest—or silliest look—you can imagine.

8. GOOSH 7FT Halloween Inflatable T-Rex, $57.99

You can’t not love an inflatable dino, especially one that’s dressed up as a pirate for Halloween. LED lights help attract even more attention to the giant T-Rex (not that it’ll need it) while the included stakes, ropes, and sandbags will keep it tacked down on your lawn or yard. It also comes with a 10-foot extension cord, though you might need to grab a longer one depending on your space.

9. The Holiday Aisle Pose n' Stay Skeleton, $92.99

At five feet, this skeleton is still quite tall and can work either indoors or outdoors. Its rotating head and posable jaw and limbs mean you can create endless spooky or funny scenes with it. Go wild!

10. Home Accents 8 ft Giant-Sized Animated LED Ferry of the Dead, $399

If you have the square footage, this 8-foot-wide ferry will turn your lawn into a spooky moat. Plug it into an outdoor outlet or pop in some batteries to power constant rowing action, LED lanterns, and motion-activated sound effects.

11. Grandin Road Holding Hands Witches, Set of Three, $99.50

Get in, witches, we’re going trick or treating. This set comes with three witches that you can pose in a straight line, semi-circle around a smoking cauldron or giant pumpkin, the backseat of your car—however you’d like.
