Spooky season is upon us, the leaves are falling, the wind is howling and all the kids are getting excited to go out trick or treating this Halloween.

What better way to get into the spooky spirit than decorating the house with all things Halloween.

LancsLive headed down to one the nation's favourite discount stores, Poundland to see what quirky and fun decorations we could gather on a £10 budget.

Gone are the days where you would assume by going to Poundland with a tenner in hands you would come out with ten items.

As prices now vary from the once 'one pound for all' there's still a varied selection of discounted decorations that will help to transform any home.

From window decorations to spooky lights, here is what we bought for less than £10.

Pumpkin ornament/tealight holder

For a mess-free take on the carved pumpkin that will last much longer than the real thing, Poundland have come out with a fantastic miniature carved pumpkin.

With a choice of spooky faces, this little ornament would look as a stand alone piece or when bought in multiple sets could be a ghoulish way to light up the house on a cold evening night.

The ceramic ornament can be used a safe alternative for younger children to still enjoy a carved pumpkin without the dangers of carving them themselves.
