So if you too enjoy looking at those stunning creepy Halloween displays, let’s embark on my journey through these sceneries.

Different Creepy Halloween Displays

Three scary settings to highlight your holiday decor

You can find collectibles to create creepy Halloween displays in online stores. I like to buy online, as I can then read the feedback from customers and decide on buying them or not.

Depending on the brand and their collections, you are going to find different styles of Halloween village collectibles. Mainly you will find three categories:

* The Halloween village scene,
* The Halloween carnival or fair display,
* The Halloween train setting.

Each of these categories are adapted to include figurines (zombies, skeletons, witches) and accessories (street lights, pumpkins, trees, etc.) They make you able to create stunning creepy Halloween displays.

Setting Up Creepy Halloween Displays Is Easy

Department 56 The Haunted Church Lit House

Do you think that creating a Halloween village is hard to do? It is in reality extremely easy! Stores have done things as simpler as possible just for you. Instead of having to build, assemble, and paint your tiny houses, you just have to remove them from their shipping boxes.

Setting up a Halloween village display using those miniature buildings is also super simple to do. You do not have to own a myriad of different items to create your very own spooky setting. A few collectibles is enough.
Basic haunted Halloween village setting:

* 1 creepy looking haunted church collectible,
* 1 pack tombstones and a cemetary gate to place next to the church,
* 1 house that produces Halloween-ish sounds,
* 1 spooky and disgusting diner or bar (because there is one of them in any spooky town),
* 1 road sign,
* A few street lights,
* Some dead trees,
* A setting with skeleton resting his bones on a public bank,
* A witch preparing ghoulish stuff in a cauldron,
* Some zombies and other creepy figurines.

There you are: cheers to a wonderful basic scary Halloween diorama.

  1. Gypzeerose

    Thanks for these beautiful Halloween decorations. They are the kind that would get passed down in the family as collectibles. I didn’t know about the Department 56 collectibles from Enesco, and how well made and valuable they are. I agree they make a lovely – but spooky holiday home.

  2. Halloween decorations are so much fun, and Department 56 creations are the best!
