Did you know? Every time you make an Amazon purchase from one of my links, you’re supporting this site.

From Peter Pan to Treasure Island, some of our most beloved stories feature battles with pirates. (You can get a copy of Treasure Island for your Kindle or Kindle App here, by the way.) Even though they’re villains, there’s something deeply compelling about the pirate life. Exploration, adventure, loot, and fame, what’s not to love? (Scurvy, fleas, and evil deeds aside, of course.) This Halloween, don’t settle for another boring pirate costume. With the items on this list, you can deck out the whole house with pirate-themed goodness. So grab your sea legs, because we’re going on an adventure!

1. The Salty Dog Metal Sign: Pirate Decor Wall Accent

Mermaids AND pirates? This hand-made sign is off to a fantastic start. And, it’s eco-friendly, to boot. It’s made of 24 gauge steel and has preset holes to make it easier to hang up in your cabin, den, or dorm room. Though you can’t tell from the picture, the image is glossy and baked into the metal so it won’t chip. It’s also got rounded corners so you don’t have to worry about accidentally cutting yourself. This pirate sign weighs about 1.2 pounds and measures about 16 by 12 inches.

2. Corkology Pirate Coaster Set

Keep your coffee tables nice and spiffy with these pirate themed coasters. Each coaster is made of cork, and they’re double-sided, too. One side has the lovely illustrations featured above, and the other side features a special story tied to each image. How cool is that? Made entirely from sustainable materials, these pirate coasters are good for the environment, too. Any guest who doesn’t use them in your home should be forced to swab the deck.

3. Island Map Decor Tablecloth by Ambesonne

If so, you’ll want to grab these while you can.

5. Pirate Cutouts

These paper cutouts are an excellent addition to any pirate party. Available in a 4-pack, some of these cutouts have different designs on the front and the back.

6. 4″ Sundial Compass

A pirate would be nothing without their trusty compass. This piece is great for the office or as a conversation starter in your home. But it’s not just a useless piece of decoration.

This compass does not come with instructions.

9. Beware of Octopus Sign

Most landlubbers won’t understand the dangers of the high seas. Sure, sharks are scary. But have you ever met an angry octopus? They’re smarter than they look. Now you, too, can warn your friends and family of the dangers posed by this mischievous sea creature. This aluminum sign has a retro feel and was printed with ink that resists fading in sunlight. Like the first item on this list, it has holes for mounting and rounded edges to avoid injury. And this vintage sign is weatherproof, too! You can hang it up inside or out without worrying about rust. It measures about 8 by 12 inches and weighs around 6.4 ounces.

11. Decorative Wooden Pirate Ship with Jolly Roger Flags

What’s a pirate captain without their ship? This fully-assembled ship is about 13 by 13 inches.

This is a great decoration for a classroom or a children’s room.
