Cheap Halloween Decorating Ideas
You have must have made garlands, out of red and green paper strips, for Christmas. Halloween is the time to repeat the procedure, only this time; it will be with different colored strips i.e. orange and black. Use the orange and black garlands along the beams in your ceiling or hang them on the inside of your door. They will definitely provide an eerie look to your house.
Spider webs have long been associated with ghosts, witches, scary houses, and the like. So, what better way to decorate your house on Halloween, than with artificial spider webs! Buy a bag of quilt batting and some plastic spiders from the discount stores. Tear, not cut, the quilt batting into parts and hang them around the light fixtures in your house. You can also use them to adorn corners of each room and hang them from ceiling fans and photo frames. Thereafter, stick the spiders throughout the "webs"
When Halloween is around the corner, the mention of skeletons and bones is almost inevitable. Wait a moment! Why don't you use broken bones to decorate your house (I don't mean literally!)? All you have to do is buy a big packet of shell-shaped macaroni from the market. Place the macaroni under you welcome mat. Every time a person steps on it, there will be a cracking noise, just like that from breaking of bones.
Tombstones definitely have that 'scary' look about them. This year, on Halloween, bring the tombstones inside your house. All you have to do is take a large piece of cardboard and cut out tombstone shapes from it. With the help of paint, give them the typical gray color and use a black marker to write some 'eerie' sayings on them. If you can't think of such sayings on your own, make use of the internet.
The terms 'Halloween' and 'Pumpkin' are almost synonymous with each other. This time, use a carved pumpkin as an adornment for your Halloween décor. All you need is a pair of sharp knives. Empty out the pumpkin and carve eyes, nose and zigzag lips on it. You can also put a bulb inside it, which, when lit up, will give a really scary effect. Keep the pumpkin at a place where it will be visible to every one who comes inside the house.
