Spooky season at Michaels craft stores just got... pinker. The store's new holiday line of Halloween decor features a colorful pink and orange theme, and some folks are going wild—either for or against including such a non-traditional color for decorations. 

Though some may think it's a waste of money and far too early, scooping up holiday deals outside of the normal holiday season can actually be a brilliant way to save money

 The newest additions to the classic line of Halloween supplies include pink gravestones, magenta potion bottles, and decorative coffins in a color that screams "It's a girl!" rather than "Happy Halloween!"

Pink Tombstone Decoration Set

Price: $24.99

Rest in ... Pink? Decorative tombstone markers in pink and magenta read "RIP" and "See you soon" for a strange juxtaposition of cheerfully creepy decor. These polyfoam and plastic gravestones are over 2 feet high for festive fun; however, they should only be used indoors. 


Assorted Spooky Glass Bottles

Price: $7.99

In previous years, Michael's spooky glass bottles have come in the expected orange, purple, and green that signal witchy potions contained within colored glass — but this year, it's all about the pink. The tabletop decor features baby pink, magenta, black, and white for the color theme with labels such as "sweet poison," "creepy things," and yes, "love potion." The bottle tops have adorable Halloween-themed figurines like ghosts and bats for extra fun. The size is 7 inches high with multiple styles. 

Witch's Broom Directional Sign

Price: $26.99

The great thing about magical directional signs is that they indicate multiple locations of magic fun to choose from. This 3-foot-long witch's broom has pink and white iridescent bristles on a black iron handle for a modern aesthetic and signs that point to "witch alley" and "hocus focus," among others.

Stacked Witch's Books

Price: $14.99

With titles like "Witch's Brew," "Potions," and "Spooky Spells," the only downside to these decorative books is that they don't open to a secret compartment. The colors are light pink, magenta, and golden orange, so they might be a permanent fixture in your home's accent decor — even outside the spooky season. They are made of papier-mache and stand just under 8 inches high.

Pink Framed Coffin Chalk Board

Price: $19.99

Chalkboards are a great communication tool for those sharing a space, and a coffin-shaped option is perfect for the autumnal season. The choice of a bright pink frame has some shoppers questioning the Halloween theme, but many are excited for the chance to add some fun new colors to the holiday. The chalkboard has a kick-stand to stay upright and measures just under 13 inches in height.

Bright Ombre Skeleton

Price: $16.99

What can "liven" up a skeleton? How about a lovely pink ombre gradient with orange and yellow instead of the traditional bone-white? If that sounds fun, Michael's has a nearly 2-foot-long hanging skeleton for wall decor made of polypropylene and ready to hang.


Bottom line

Some folks think Halloween decorating can't start too soon, and adding a splash of summery fun to the color scheme will surely please the spooky crowd who favor Halloween all year. 

As these new pink Halloween options appear in Michaels stores, the debate on what colors can be deemed "spooky" is a fun, low-key way to prepare for the end of summer and the transition into fall.  Plus, buying now could help save you a ton later
