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.
These are some of suggestions you can make when you start decorating your house for the Halloween. Decorating can be exhausting but it will be fun if your whole family would help you out. Halloween decorating can be a family bonding moment for you and your family as well.
You can start with the traditional carved pumpkin but with a little flare. After you carve the pumpkin, take it to the next level by stenciling designs around the pumpkin then use the pumpkin as a planter with fall branches and leaves from the top. Pumpkins are fun and easy and should be the first item on your list. Get the family involved and let everyone put a piece of his or her creative mind into the masterpiece. Hang black rubber bats on the porch and put cobwebs over everything. In one corner, you can setup a mad scientist lab with a big jar filled with green goo, eyeballs, bats, vampire teeth and whatever else you can dream up.
