Is there anything cozier than sitting in front of the fireplace during a windy autumn night? We don’t think so. Encourage folks to settle down in your moody sitting room and get into a spooky state of mind when they take in your delightfully dismal display. The mantel has a sheer spiderweb cloth that can add ambience for dining rooms, living rooms, and entry ways. The black and purple color scheme is dark but elegant with sparkly purple pumpkins as well as silver and purple potion bottles. To make your display playful you can add a fuzzy owl or crafty crow. With a striking color scheme and plenty of sparkle, you’re sure to love your uncanny interior!
Spooky black-and-orange decorations aren't your thing? Try this pretty alternative: Place white chrysanthemums and ornamental cabbage in cream-colored apple baskets on your front lawn, and surround with white pumpkins and gourds. (Note: For a similar look minus the danger, lanterns and jack-o'-lanterns should always be lit with battery-operated lights, like these LED votives.)
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.

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.
