Last I checked, it was nowhere near Halloween. And, while Michaels and other craft stores are known for stocking supplies on the early side so you can decorate and craft in time for the holiday, it’s… April. A bit early for code orange. Still, Michaels Nevermore collection is spooky AF.

If you love Halloween year-round, the new Nevermore decor by Ashland can definitely help you transform your home to match your Dark Academia aesthetic. They also work for witchy gifts if you need one of those.

So, here are some of my favorite items from Michaels’ reportedly Edgar Allen Poe-inspired product line. Who knows, maybe it’ll inspire you to write your gothic novel. Or bring out your inner Morticia.

The Coolest Items in Michaels Nevermore Collection

1. Arch Wall Accent

This wooden accent piece comes in 14.5″ and 17.” If you’re feeling super crafty, you could adhere it to the back of a chair and somehow create a throne. Or, get a bunch of them and turn your living room into a gothic cathedral. You’ve probably already got enough candles to help with that.

Cloches are so last season. This year, it’s all about iron birdcages to show off your prized possessions.

6. Gothic Floral Shelf

This dark cottagecore mini shelf is ideal for holding crystals, unlit candles, and tiny sculptures or other knicknacks. Probably too small for Uncle Knicknack though.

You heard it. Pair it with this gold stand if you want it to place it on a tabletop.

This pretty pink moth is just over 10″ wide, and feels very gothic romance meets dark cottagecore.

15. Woman Blowing Bubble Sculpture

I’m on the fence about this one. It feels a little like a fun pop art meets Dark Academia item but also like one that might just collect dust.

16. Black Butterfly Frame

On the other hand, this lovely metal frame covered in butterflies feels like a must have.

17. Not a Morning Person Mug

As countless people have pointed out on TikTok, Michaels really missed the opportunity here by writing morning instead of “mourning.” (They also missed the opportunity to literally include a single raven in the entire Nevermore collection.)

This simple bud vase well look lovely on your altar if we do say so ourselves.
