For the last few years, we've collected galleries of handmade Halloween items found on Etsy, made by craftspeople who celebrate the bizarre and horrific. This year, we've found even more items to spiff up your Halloween party ... or to creep out your friends and family for the other 364 days of the year.

A round of applause for the Etsy creators, whose imaginations have never failed to amaze and/or amuse us.

Note: This gallery of images is ordered from smile-worthy to stomach-churning, so brace yourself as you progress. 



Ghost pillow

It's a ghostie. He's pouting. Obviously, he needs special holiday snuggles.


Rolling pin

Give your cookies some holiday flavor with this patterned rolling pin

Monster leggings

You can do the Monster Mash in these leggings


Glow-in-the-dark clutch

Why is this glow-in-the-dark clutch one of my favorite Etsy items? Because according to seller ViaDonna, it holds snacks. Snacks!


Cake/cupcake toppers

These headstone cake toppers signal to your Halloween guests that your cake is to die for.


Potion bottles

Anything looks like satanic hellbroth when you serve from these bottles. Even tea. 


Haunted pendant

This ghost pendant goes with everything. It's the new black. Just like your soul.


Halloween lollipops

These Halloween treats come in many colors. But the flavor is always fear. 


Temporary skeleton tattoos

These may be temporary skeleton tattoos, but it's just a reminder of the skeleton permanently under your skin.


Pillow that traps your enemies into oblivion

For when pillow fights go terribly, horribly wrong.


Cockroach necklace

This is a necklace of horrors for anyone with katsaridaphobia. 


Zombie hat

Keep your head warm while running from zombies. Better yet, perhaps they’ll think another zombie has claimed you and will leave you alone.


Zombie sneakers

Unique, custom-painted sneakers, to help you run away from World War Z.


Icky lightswitch plate

You'll want to shut off the lights the moment you see this lightswitch cover.


Faux bat taxidermy

Fake bat. Real screams.


Zombie wall plaque

A zombie wall plaque, so you can proudly display your zombie kills.


Custom phone case

It's an Eye-phone case. Geddit? 


Necronomicon ex Mortis

A blank book of horrors, for when you need to transcribe your darkest thoughts.


Mutant horror sculpture

This sculpture is made with clay, and not, as you suspected, nightmare fuel. 


Door wreath

Nothing says welcome like a wreath of intestines with eyeballs.
