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.
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.
Small Changes: You can really make a big impact with just a few small changes. Put up orange and black curtains. Use a Halloween-designed throw rug. Cover the pots of your indoor plants with plastic Halloween containers. These little changes can really make a big difference in your overall holiday spirit.
