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.
Put up fake spider webs in your every window and place in creepy insects that glow on the dark. Make sure to put in a generous amount of fake webs to really capture the real feel of an old house. Spray some red paint to create blood splatters here and there. You can also put fake bloody fingers, eyeballs or a hacked bloody left foot. If you still keep your human skeleton model that you have submitted for your science project back in middle school, take it out and place it in your doorway. You may have to spray paint it with white to enhance it to opaque white. Put it in a relative amount of fake spider webs as well so that you can place fake maggots that will crawl over the bones.
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.
