What are some easy Halloween decorating ideas?
This is the first Halloween party I have ever thrown so I want it to be great. I already have the usual ideas and am looking for something unique and interesting.
Don't have a very big budget so preferably something easy and fairly inexpensive. All help is appreciated.
- A cool idea I'm using (Don't mind if you take it) is I'm printing out these labels I made on Microsoft Office Word are stuff like...
(Picture of an Alien)
-Eye of Newt
-Tounge of dog
And put them on pop bottles and when your friends get thirsty, just give them one of you're special cool creations...
Hope I helped.
- I LOVE DECORATING FOR HALLOWEEN PARTIES SO HERE:
With a magic marker, draw a footprint in a big sponge. Cut out the footprint. Pour washable paint in an 1/8 inch aluminum pan. Press the sponge in the paint and sponge footsteps up your sidewalk to your front door for trick-or-treaters to follow, or around the side of your dark, spooky house. Flip the sponge upside down to stamp the other foot.
Cut some string into 4 foot lengths and tape them to the ceiling. You should have a very dim room for this. Just before the victim arrives you can hold a bowl of water up to the string and get it wet. When people walk in the wet, slimy string will brush across their foreheads and scare them!
-Crunching Bones Underfoot
Spread some dried bread and pretzels under a rug. When your guests walk across the rug it will sound like crunching bones underfoot!
You can record several scary sounds and play it back during the festivities. A very large sheet of poster board or sheet metal makes great thunder. Uncooked rice poured onto a cookie sheet sounds like rain. Crinkle a handful of cellophane for a roaring fire. To get a good scream you can, well -- scream. Snap carrots in half for the sound of breaking bones. Flap a plastic bag in front of the microphone for the
sound of bats. Slowly blow bubbles with a straw into a bowl for that bog sound. Hunt around your house and the garden to find a squeaky hinge somewhere and tape it before someone gets to it with a can of oil. (or you can buy some CD's at spirit haloween)
-play some haloween themed music, a good one are the monster mash
