You will also want to think about how scary you would like your decorations to be. If you're opening up your Halloween party to include children then you may want to keep the scariness down to a minimum. You don't want to give your guest's children nightmares for a week after the actual party. When expecting kids, stick more to decorations and accessories that still have elements of the classic Halloween themes, but that are more on the humorous or light hearted side and are age appropriate for your guests.
Paper mache ghosts - create ghosts out of paper mache to hang from doorways, curtain rods and light fixtures. This is also a great activity for the kids as they will love to get their hands messy creating these great decorations. Paper bats - Cut out bat shapes from black construction paper and hang from the ceiling or even ceiling fan with dental floss. When you turn the fan on it will give the appearance that bats are flying around the room certain to freak some people out. Fake spiders - People of all ages are frightened of spiders which make these a great Halloween decoration. Go to your local dollar store and pick up a ton of these plastic, crawly, creatures and litter them around your house.
One simple and very cheap idea; costume the people in the paintings and photos in your home. This is easily done with paper masks made out of construction paper, scissors, and low tack artist tape. You can use leaves and weeds for hair. It will add that extra flare for your Halloween party. Wreaths are a great way to add fun to your home. You can make your own or buy them for fairly cheap. Some people aren't crafty and you can purchase ready made wreaths for cheap at craft and/or dollar stores. You u can buy plain wreaths and stick cheap Halloween decorations such as giant bugs, spiders, bats etc. By the way, wreaths are great indoors as well as outdoors.
