Halloween is just around the corner, and if you can’t wait for spooky season to arrive, you’re probably going to start decorating soon. This year, people are going crazy over Pottery Barn’s Halloween pillows. Let’s face it, most Pottery Barn Halloween decor is great. But, these pillows are so popular that they’re selling out quickly. Beyond that, they might not be in your budget.

Thankfully, there are several cheaper Pottery Barn Halloween pillow alternatives that are just as “ghoulish” and will get your home ready for all Hallow’s Eve.

Ready to spruce up your Halloween decor this year? Let’s cover a few alternatives that won’t do so much damage to your wallet.
