29 People Who Tried Their Best to Decorate for Halloween and Failed Miserably | 22 Words

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

That's right, I'm talking about Halloween! We may still have some time before the official holiday begins, but that won't stop me. I'm already lighting creepy candles, hanging cobwebs, making a list of spooky films, and contemplating my dog's costume. I am ready for the Halloween holiday season to officially begin.

I've also spent some time on the Internet looking for Halloween decorations. While there are plenty out there that are absolutely incredible, there were also quite a few that gave me pause. As it turns out, the world of bad design knows no bounds. No category of item is safe; not even the decor associated with our most hallowed eve.

On the bright side, these design fails are fun to laugh at. So let's get on with it!

Put on your pumpkin mask and dance your scariest dance.

We're about to see some spooky fails! (OK, they're just regular, Halloween-themed design fails, but work with me, here.)

Harvest time?

What are they harvesting, exactly? I don't think I'd want my kid enrolled here.

"Do Not Enter!"

LOL, JK. You should still totally enter and buy food from us. That's just decor!

For people who hate fall:

Whoa! That's a little uncalled for. Not everyone loves wearing scarves and sipping PSLs, but I'd hardly compare it to hell!

There's a lot to unpack here.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid I won't be able to do so because I have no idea how to even begin reading this sign.

OK, let's!

What's your favorite part of Halloween? Mine is getting "Spoy."


More like buyer rewabe, you know? (Just kidding; I would absolutely buy this. Nothing is scarier than misspellings.)


Or is it "Bool?" Either way, very scary.


This is why he's actually called Frankenstein's monster. What reprehensible behavior.

Spidey skeleton.

Hey, guys? Spiders do not have skeletons like this.

Let's get Srooky.

I've tried to make my apartment look pretty srooky, but I don't think it's at maximum srook yet. Maybe I should get this sign to up the srook factor.

Chappy Halloween!

That reminds me. Don't forget to bring your chapstick with you when you go Trick-or-Treating!

Spooky. Tricky. Creery.

These are Old Man Creery's socks. But he's been dead for years!

Creepy nugs.

There is absolutely nothing about this that I find appetizing. Are they trying to scare me away from the food?

Excuse me?

Hey! Screw you, ghost! I didn't ask for this.


No, no, it's supposed to say "LAVE." It doesn't mean anything, but it implies so much.

Another incorrect skeleton.

I mean, have you ever even looked at an avian X-ray? Honestly, people.

Mrs. Wickd Wtich

Eh, whatever. You get the idea.

Excuse me, Master Yoda?

Happy Halloween! Everything is ruined!

It's Autumn!

Raise your hand if you thought this said "Autism." Good work all around, everybody. Why even go to the trouble of using Scrabble tiles if you're not going to arrange them correctly?


I get what you're going for, I do. But you have made a very grave error, here.

To be fair, a Halloween-themed wedding would be pretty incredible. Imagine getting cake and candy and dressing up in a costume!


Just in case you're a little lost on this one, Halloween is always on October 31st. It's literally impossible for it to be on the 13th.

All hail the Rhino Dragon!

from facepalm
You know, because a rhino skeleton isn't Halloween-y enough. It's gotta be a dragon, obviously.

What's that?

Either that's a very poorly executed piece of pink candy corn, or this is a favor for a Halloween-themed bachelorette party. (I'm personally hoping for the latter.)

Wow, wow, wow.

I assume there's a lot of important information on this flyer. Too bad it's unreadable.

I think this is supposed to be blood.

As passionate as I am about Halloween, I make but one humble request: Please leave the toilet out of it.

Check out that scary pentagram!

Just kidding; it's a Star of David! Somebody messed up their Google Image search...

Something's not quite right, here.

If your kid is looking to dress up as a superhero with two noses, then you're in luck! You've found the right place!

OK, this one I actually love.

It's the perfect combination of getting into the holiday spirit and also just being lazy. I support it wholeheartedly. Share this with someone who loves Halloween!
