You can get Halloween decorations just about anywhere this time of year, but why not do a little extra looking and set yourself apart?

Sure, you could head to your local grocery store and get a couple of pumpkins to carve, or  to the local superstore to find a few foam tombstones or spooky lights, but what if you want a little more? What if you want to turn Halloween up a notch with the help of some handmade horrors? Thankfully, the booming online marketplace known as Etsy is here to answer the call, and its crafters are always cooking up spooky new delights for the Halloween consumer. 

To help out those discerning Halloween shoppers (and the crafters who serve them), we combed Etsy for the scariest Halloween objects we could find (nothing over $250, though, because we don't want the process of decorating your house to lead to you losing your house) and gathered them here for the third in our series of features to celebrate the 31 Days of Halloween.

Check out our favorites below, including everything from fairy mummies to zombies to the perfect Halloween buffet centerpiece.
