I am seeing neighbors throw up their Halloween decorations. Let’s start with your spooky front yard décor. I grab whatever is in the house to make Halloween decorations. For example, I use crutches and slap a salon foam head, and cover up the whole project with white sheets. Then I would lean it up against old furniture to scare the kids off! Here is a list of ideas that may run across your mind to turn your house into a site people might walk by on purpose to see.  Let’s start with a Jack-O-Lanterns you can make. Turn orange tissue paper balls into proper Halloween pumpkins that can align your front porch. Simply cut facial features from a construction paper material and apply to the balls with glue the dots!

If you are a wine drinker, make a wine bottle candlesticks. Things you’ll need is spray paint to paint wine bottles with matte-black spray paint. Once dry, insert an orange taper candle in each bottle. Another good idea is bubbling cauldron that is easy to make if you have a little imagination. Easily add spooky fog by adding dry ice (available in grocery stores) and a little water to a cast-iron Dutch oven.

To make a creepy spiderweb wall to your house or trees with some fake spider web material! Just simply stretch out the web long enough to draw people’s attention. Add toy spiders along with it by applying glue or tape.  Interested in making something called Ghouls Night Out? Use glue dots to stick some  construction paper eyes and mouths onto white tissue-paper bells, then drape them with cheesecloth

Hanging Cage Props: Give your neighbors a light of fright with these outdoor “cages,” simply made from small stacked plastic laundry baskets glued together to look like a cage. For the full effect, add some
fake skeletons inside! To make origami Halloween lights, find a string of white Christmas lights for Halloween with this easy project. Use orange paper to craft the lanterns and attach them over the lights with tape.
