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.
One such idea for outdoor Halloween decorations is to decorate a large banner. The banner can be the full length of the door, or only a partial piece of the length. Since door decorations can be particularly inviting or scary, if there are little kids in the neighborhood, try to decorate a banner with something cartoon-ish. The banner should also reflect the personalities of those living inside. Fringes can also be added to the banners – whether it’s pom-poms or straw. For a fun twist, candy stickers and funky texts can be added if a drawing is not your speed.

Jaunty jack-o'-lanterns, foreboding bats—these are Halloween-appropriate versions of the classic paper-doll chain. To make it, print our template onto card stock, fold the paper to its width, trace, and cut it out. Then, use scissors for the outline, and a craft knife or hole punch for facial features and smaller details. Intersperse with fringed garlands to add color.

Make the Wreath: Cut 150 6-inch-long strips of 2-inch-wide black grosgrain ribbon. Fold the strips in half and attach them to a 16-inch foam wreath form with straight pins, layering them on top of each other to create a ruffle effect. Cut out a silhouette of a witch from black kraft paper. Attach it to the center of a 16-inch round clear piece of acrylic with double-sided tape. Hot-glue the edges of the acrylic round to the back of the wreath form. Finish with a bow with long tails.

While hanging a full door covering can be difficult, making a mummy on your door is completely worth it. Bandages or paper tape can be used to create an opaque white sheet on your door. Black construction paper can be cut into a mouth and pupils for the eyes. White construction paper is used to create the corneas of the eyes. However, make sure you leave the knob and whatever locks are on the door uncovered – otherwise it’ll be a scary situation. The best part about this fun Halloween front door decoration is that the bandages can be as thick or as thin as you want them to be.
There's no faster and more affordable way to transform a room. Wall, window, and hanging Halloween decorations are light enough to hang with tape or tacks, yet they easily fill a party space with color, a fascinating mix of textures, and visual weight. From kid-friendly pumpkin lanterns and fan garlands to six-foot long banners and creepy clown swirls, you'll find them all here. 
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.)
Protect your work surface from paint using newspaper or a drop sheet. Place the tin container on the newspaper with the opening facing down. Following the instructions provided on the paint can, apply the orange spray paint to the outside of the tin container. Repeat as needed until you achieve the desired coverage (in our case, 5-6 coats of spray paint were needed for full coverage). Leave it to dry fully before moving on to the next steps.
If crepe paper, duct tape, and paper plates have one thing in common, it’s that they can create wonderful Halloween front door decors. Pick up some crepe paper in any color that contrasts your door and hang strips from the top of the door. The paper plates become the eyes when black circles are drawn on. Duct tape them on the door. Then use the duct tape to create eye brows and a mouth. Style it however you want. Kids across the neighborhood will enjoy looking at your creepy monster, and it’ll be a hoot to create if your own kids help. Even if you don’t have kids, this monster gives the creator one great time while putting it up.
To give your doormat this Halloween update, start by downloading the skull family template. Print out as many faces as you have people in household. Use an X-Acto knife or craft knife to cut out faces, eyes, noses, and mouths. Then, arrange the faces as you want them to appear on your mat, adding cut-out letters if you wish. Attach paper to the doormat with folded-up painter's tape on the back. Then, starting with a little paint at a time, dab paint around the stencil with a foam brush. Continue until the entire mat is covered, and let dry completely before you remove the stencils.

To make this clever wreath, fold 2 sheets of black paper accordion-style (about 1.5" inch folds), and then fold each in half lengthwise so you have two segments. Cut the top of the fold diagonally so you'll have a pointed end when it's unfolded. Then, cut three rectangles out of the paper, about half an inch apart, on each part of the segment. Once you have folded and cut both sheets of paper, tie them together tightly at their center folds. Take each loose edge of folded paper and using a glue stick, attach it to the end next to it. You'll see the paper will start to open up like a web!
Make your entry room extra eerie when you set up a table to greet both guests and trick-or-treaters. Use a mantel scarf to start out your display and go from there.

With drilled (rather than carved) pumpkins, your life is bound to be a hole lot easier. To make these fun designs, simply cut a hole in the bottom of a large pumpkin, then scoop out the pulp and seeds as you normally would. Next, mark your desired pattern with an erasable wax pencil. Using a medium drill bit, punch out a dotted outline of your image. Leave approximately the same amount of space between each hole, and you're good to go!
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.
While decorating ideas can be difficult to come across, this spider webby idea can scare anyone. Window clings create a scary giant spider and web. Rat clings can be added to the bottom of the window or the screen door to show a better, scarier scene. The spider web can be created from a window cling or from the fake spider webs available around this time of year. DIY Halloween door decorations have a lot going on this one – the spider and its web can be created with window paint and a steady hand instead of store bought materials, or with tape.
