Murals: Let your kids go crazy by painting a huge Halloween mural or banner. Buy a large piece of white cloth or even a white bed sheet and allow them to use paint or markets to create something your can display along your wall or even in your front yard. Allow your kids to be creative or, if your children are still young, outline the words "Happy Halloween" or "Trick or Treat" in big, black letters so that you've created a big coloring book page for them to color.
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.
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.
