You can do as few or as many ghosts as you want, depending on how spooky you want it to be.
3. Trashbag Spiderwebs
These simple Halloween decorations can easily be made with a few things you most likely already have lying around the house. These decorations are also inexpensive since they don’t require much.
With some black trash bags and scissors, you can create these spiderwebs in just a few minutes.
These quick decorations could be used to make the inside or the outside of your house a little bit spookier for the holiday.
4. Tomato Cage Ghosts
From Crafty Home Improvement (Mis)Adventures
By taking a few old white sheets, drawing some faces on them, and draping them over some inexpensive tomato cages, you’ll have yourself an inexpensive Halloween decoration in no time.
You can also hang some lights from inside the tomato cage.
This can make them look as if they’re floating through your yard at night – spooky!
5. Halloween Cup Decorations
From Paging Fun Mums
If you need to add a little something to your dessert table at your Halloween party, these might be just what you’re looking for.
Some cheap orange cups, a Sharpie, and some battery-operated lights come together to create a cute Jack-O-Lantern decoration for your party.
They’re also much cheaper and mess-free than actual pumpkins.
6. Spirit Jugs
To create an easy outdoor Halloween decoration, start by gathering together some clean milk jugs (asking friends or family might help—I’m not sure anyone drinks that much milk).
Kids can draw some spooky faces on each of the jugs, then they get placed outside with some lights inside them.
This is a cute way to greet those trick-or-treaters coming down your sidewalk on Halloween!
7. Bloody Hand Windows

inding a cheap doormat and some black paint will make an inexpensive decoration for your home this Halloween. Inexpensive, easy, and spooky!
9. Spooky Bat Chandelier
This one may take a little more time than the rest, but the end result is definitely worth it. Everything is still inexpensive and easy to find at any craft store.
This spooky bat chandelier would be a great addition to any Halloween party you’re throwing this year.
10. Zombie Planters
From This Old House
These creepy planters will be sure to catch anyone’s eye. By attaching fake hands to gardening tools, it looks as if there’s zombies rising right up out of your plants.
You could even skip the planters and place these right into your front garden to give a scare to trick-or-treaters coming to your door.
11. DIY Glowing Eyes
From Rust & Sunshine
