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.
An easy and cheap thing to do is to find an old planter box, paint it black and use a stencil to paint Trick or Treat on the side. Fill the planter box with hay and pile on some pumpkins with a larger pumpkin on the bottom and then use smaller sizes on the next layers; sort of like topiary of pumpkins. For the topiary of pumpkins, I would paint the faces on them instead of carving them. You will want them to be sturdy and maybe even use a metal rod down the center to keep them together.
Masks: Masks don't have to just be for your face-they can be some great Halloween decorations as well! Try lining and entryway with scary masks or even hanging one on your front door. This can also be an inexpensive way to decorate, since you've probably collected a number of masks over the years. Put a mask on your scarecrow, on your garden features like statues, and even your kids' dolls. If you'll be using the masks outdoors, make sure that they are weatherproof.
