A giant spider that dangles overhead requires very little legwork. To begin, use wire cutters to cut eight 26-inches pieces of wire, and then cover the length of one wire with a piece of double-sided tape. Unroll your streamers onto tape and cut them to the proper length; turn the wire over and repeat the process on the other side. Then, create a half-inch fringe on the sides of the streamers using fringe scissors—repeat the process on the other legs as well. Finally, open up a flutter ball and poke your top end of each leg into the ball, securing with tape. Suspend the ball from the ceiling using filament wire.

Bare-limbed trees provide the perfect ghostly perch for jack-o'-lanterns, LED candle lanterns, and a flock of faux black crows. Make sure the tree limbs are sturdy enough to support the weight of the items you are hanging and take care not to over-decorate, which can lessen the overall effect. Funkins (Styrofoam pumpkins) are an especially good choice for this project, since they're lightweight and won't rot.

This Halloween door decoration is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re imaginative, crafty and enjoy a challenge, then this decoration is just for you. Purchase a pair of mannequin legs and decorate with paint or cover with a pair of old stockings. You can get as detailed as you want with this project – from the shoe selection to the number of cracks in the wall – it’s all up to you. The plywood base is painted a matte black. Use foam core to simulate broken plaster – align to create a circle – and now you have the dark hole.
Pumpkins with scary lit up faces are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s lips this Halloween. To make sure this front porch decoration is visible from the street, paint some of the lighted pumpkins white and the rest black or leave orange. Decorate an old planter or use a neutral colored one that doesn’t distract from your handiwork. Use a sturdy dowel that can carry the weight of five small to medium-sized pumpkins. Alternate pumpkin colors when placing. Hide that electrical cord as best you can so people see your decorating savvy rather than a thick orange or black trip hazard.
Peeping Toms watch out! There’s an oversized evil eye staring right back atcha’! This green demon window cling will make it seem like your house is brimming with possession. People will be convinced that you have to deal with all the classic poltergeist problems on a regular basis. They probably think your dining room chairs pile up when no one is watching, and that your tv turns on by itself at three o’clock in the morning. Luckily for you, no one actually has to deal with these fears in order for folks to think your place is terrifying!

Our selection of creepy outdoor Halloween decorations, crawly Halloween animatronics and exciting indoor Halloween decorations will help you make this year’s fright night one to remember.
The head and arms are made from a heavy weight plastic, not out of foam. They are full human size with the face being 8" from chin to top of forehead. There is a concealed stake included to keep the head from blowing away and both "arms" are stakes. It will be a great add to any creepy Halloween graveyard. Just add a little mulch around it to give the appearance of crawling out of the ground. The color is darker than the picture and I like it!
From needing to find Halloween decor to having to make sure you have some scary awesome Halloween ideas, it can be difficult. However, having quality decorations – or scary Halloween decorations – can be a real scare of a treat to make. It’s no wonder that DIY has become the cool thing to do for decorations for Halloween. From front door jazz and funky garage door ideas, there are so many different things that can be created on a $100 budget. Some can be created for even less, making DIY Halloween decorations a much more attainable goal for this year than it may have been in years past.

Welcome guests inside your home – if they dare – by creating this unique front door decoration for Halloween. Little trick-or-treaters will be amused and a little bit scared by your imagination and creativity, while most parents will find it downright funny. Stuff the striped socks with newspaper to create a little depth and added bulk. Use a worn-our pair of pointy-toe heels to finish. Any mat will do as long as it inscribed with a warm greeting (it’s not as funny without the warm greeting). This fun front door decoration never gets old as most people have seen The Wizard of Oz at least once.

If you want the perfect jump scares, then consider an animatronic that's motion or sound censored. Imagine the look on a trick-or-treater's face when they reach for candy in a bowl on a dummy's lap, only for the creature to come to life when they get too close! Or have one of our "bump and go" animatronics roam around any room of your home, or down a long and ominous hallway. From twisted clowns and scary scarecrows to witches and horrifying zombies, our wide selection of Halloween animatronics means that you can find the perfect characters for your haunted home.
The grimmer, the better! Nothing screams "Halloween" quite like scary creatures dangling from tree limbs and rafters, or animated Halloween decor poised to startle trick-or-treaters and party guests. Strategically placed, motion sensor animated props can quickly an ordinary haunted house or graveyard scene into something truly extraordinary, worthy of comments, admiration, and imitation. 
The level of detail in this zombie head is amazing. The paint job on it was terrible and minimal. However a touch of acrylic paint in the shadows and fully color in the details on the eyes/teeth and this thing looks incredible. Best zombie head I've come across. If you have any inclination towards an artistic touch up and you will end up with something impressive. (Pictures show before and after.)
Download this bat stencil, then trace the shape onto a piece of black craft paper and cut out the bat with scissors. Then, place the stencil back atop each critter you create and use a bone folder to make creases along the dotted lines on the stencil. Fold the creases opposite ways on each wing to make the wings 3D. Attach each bat to a long piece of string with tiny black clothespins.
Nothing will bring your haunted scenes to life quite like one of our Halloween animatronics. Here at Spirit, our Halloween animatronics are more than just moving and talking props; they're characters all of their own, with each featuring a different backstory. And the best part? You can decide whether or not to include in your haunted home, or to create your own stories for these horrifying creatures. You won't have to worry about your guests finding your haunted home to be a bit lackluster (and you won't have to hire your family members to jump out and scare people every time!) when you set up these animatronics in any or every room.
In our homes, we tend to hold on to our empty containers and packaging, so this candy tin is no exception. Having bought the candy last Christmas, the container seemed too nice to part with. With the candy long gone, the tin container now makes a pretty cute and inexpensive pumpkin decoration. And if you love upcycled projects as much as we do, you should check out this round up of perfectly upcycled pumpkin project ideas.

Is that a fog machine, or are the ghosts of the forgotten truly rising from their graves? Only you will know for sure!
