Here are some easy, inexpensive, fun ideas to decorate for Halloween.

There are always some awesome decorations you can just purchase right off the shelf for Halloween, such as:
-Orange Lights and Strobe String Lights
-Spider Webbing
-Lighted Characters
And much much more!

However, if you want to get those creative juices flowing, try these DIY ideas:

Pumpkin Bat
-Cut Bat Wings out of cardboard, bend the long edge in slightly and hot glue the wings to each side of a pumpkin.
-Spray paint the pumpkin and wings all black.

Pumpkin Light Globes
-Lightly spray paint a round light globe orange.
-Draw a pumpkin face on the globe with a black paint pen. (2 triangles for the eyes, triangle for the nose and a smiley face).

Pumpkin stand: Turn a Terra Cotta Pot upside down and glue a Terra Cotta Saucer to it or turn a Terra Cotta Pot upside down and draw a mock little Tuxedo on it (makes it look like the pumpkin is wearing a Tuxedo!)

Halloween/Fall Candle Holders
-Using either 4x4 wood (lumber dept) or Railroad Ties (garden dept) that are already orange, cut to various desired lengths. 6,8,10,12 inches for example.
-Decide if you would like to use Tall Taper Candles, Votive Candles or Tea lite candles, this will determine the size or the paddle or Forstner bit you will need.
-Using a paddle bit of a Forstner bit, drill a hole in the top of the wood approximately 3/4" down.
-Paint, stain or decorate as desired.
-Place candle in the hole, light and Enjoy!!
