Monday Must-Haves: Halloween Characters

Monday, August 28th, 2017

Our Halloween collection is full of whimsical collectibles, wall art and pillows, as well as timeless characters and symbols that will make every year just as spooky (and charming) as the last. For the next two weeks you can get special savings on our batty, ghostly and witchy decor, including the following five must-haves.

Come Sit a Spell Doormat

Come sit a spell on the stoop, and fend off myths of bad luck with this black cat. Made in the USA, this doormat designed by Dianna Swartz will add charm to your porch or front steps, and keep your entryway free of mud and dirt this fall.

All Hallow's Eve Lighted Shadow Box

Trick or Treat Halloween SignBlack cats also appear in Bethany Lowe’s All Hallow’s Eve Shadow Box, which also features vintage imagery that appears on many other home accents.

A whimsical rhyme at the bottom of the box offers the following wish: “By pumpkins fat and witches lean…By coal black cats with eyes of green…By all the magic ever seen…I wish you luck this HALLOWEEN!!”

Offering up the option of a Trick or Treat is a USA made, SYW exclusive sign featuring a black bat and spooky typography. The handcrafted frame and birch wood add a rustic look to your seasonal home accents and Halloween displays.

A little ghost can add a classic Halloween look to your collectibles and seasonal decor, and this one will also brighten them up. An LED light illuminates this waxy figure holding a BOO banner, and the included bag and twine make this accent a perfect party favor, too.

Finally, one of our newest witch sculptures. Nellie here holds a broomstick, ready to fly off into the night. Shiny gold accents adorn the bow on her hat, her legs and the bodice of her black dress for a sparkling look on a shelf or mantel.

Made in the USA: Halloween Accessories

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Decorating for the holidays can be quite the chore, especially when looking for quality products that will look great on display for many years to come.  Here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, American-made Halloween themed decorations are taking center stage.

Spooked Halloween Print Bonnie White USA Made, For Your Home Display

There is something comforting about purchasing domestic goods. Perhaps it is the satisfaction that the crafting of these items provided jobs and generates local income.  Or, it could be that American-made products offer a direct connection to the artist who created them.

Whatever the reason, Sturbridge Yankee Workshop has always been, and will continue to be, proud to offer a wide range of American-made products.


Quality So Good, It’s Scary

Our Halloween themed products, including ghosts, witches, and pumpkins galore, will garner plenty of excited reactions from guests, and not just because of their domestic roots.

Grab immediate attention when guests arrive with the Headless Horseman Tabletop Display. This display is sure to delight, with the unique silhouette of the headless horseman galloping through Sleepy Hollow.

Pumpkin Gourd Candy Dish Oh My Gourd!

Trick-or-treating is a pastime that many continue to enjoy well into adulthood, especially when their own children are ready for candy gathering adventures.  We recommend that candy and other Halloween treats be displayed in our dried gourd bowls, made in Pennsylvania.

With a choice of pumpkins or a ghost, younger audiences will enjoy reaching inside the pumpkin’s gaping maw for their Halloween treat.


Fun Lighting Tip!

For mood lighting on a front porch, place LED candles inside of the gourds. The flickering effect of candlelight on a porch at night is both spooky and delightful!

It also offers enough light for trick-or-treaters to find their way in the dark.

Three Little Witches Print Bonnie White Whimsical Artwork

Bonnie White fans out there will appreciate the wide selection of prints available at Sturbridge, especially those geared towards the harvest season, and Halloween in particular.  With plenty of whimsical charm, the made in the USA prints titled Spooked Halloween and Three Little Witches will grace that empty space above the mantel all season long.


The Guests Have Arrived

If yard space is available, we recommend gracing a walkway with yard art that has, “spook and spunk.” Cast aluminum forms the shape of the Witch and Bat Weather Vanes.

The details on these two weather vanes are quite spectacular, and will offer a festive touch to a front or backyard all season long.  Or, proudly display these American-made pieces all year long to make a statement of the favored holiday season.

Witches Brew Soap Brew Up Some Soap Bubbles

Have you seen our line of American-made soaps? Our Halloween favorite bar soap, Witches Brew is a big hit. You can have your first cup of coffee in the shower with this soap, as it is Turkish mocha scented!

The detailed soap wrapper, with the delightful image of a witch crafting a Halloween brew, reads, ‘Magickal things are crafted in this Kitchen.’

Use this bar of soap for decorative display or brew up some bubbles when washing up for supper.


No matter what spell you cast this Halloween, be sure to bring American-made products from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop into your home.

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Halloween is just a little over a month away and it’s time to start decorating. At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop there is plenty of home decor to choose from this Halloween season. Today however, we want to bring your attention to our new Website Exclusive Halloween signs that are proudly made here in the USA. Crafted of solid knotty pinewood, these handcrafted signs are made by the skilled artisans and craftsmen at Sawdust City in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Pictured above is our If the Broom Fits Ride It Sign. Painted orange with black undertones, this comical sign is detailed of black font and a little image of witch riding  a broom. This sign would look great in any room of the home for a good laugh at your Halloween get-together, and is on sale now for just $19.95.

Next up is our Double Double Toil & Trouble Sign, shown here to the left. The well known beginning to many bewitching spells, “Double double toil and trouble, Fire burn and cauldron bubble,” reads the spooky wall sign. The edges are beveled and slightly distressed, for an aged appeal. Completing the images is an appropriate witch’s cauldron in a coordinating bright, witchy green. Customers can purchase this sign for $19.95 while supplies last.

Sawdust City’s signs offer a nostalgic feel to your home’s wall decor. Exposed wood grain and the distressing applied to each handmade sign is what gives the signs their true appeal.
