Haunted houses, bats, ghosts and goblins everywhere! Halloween is an enjoyable time of year for children and adults alike. Do you want some suggestions for decorating your household for all hallows eve? Try these fun and easy and inexpensive Halloween decor ideas.

Entryway: The entryway to your house is the first impression people get of your residence. All too often we forget about how much impact this can have when decorating for the seasons.

Halloween Display. Make the most of it by creating a simple display of Halloween statuary set on a small table covered with a black or orange tablecloth. The 4 to six inch collectible figurines are affordable enough to even use outdoors if you have enough room for a compact table by your door. Indoors, you can go with this same strategy, even adding scary lights and garlands readily available at dollar and discount stores.

Animated Items. Animated Halloween characters can add instant festivity to a uninteresting entry table. These objects can move, have sound, and some are even motion activated. A good way to help make your entry one to remember! With rising recognition, these items are now available in dollar and discount stores.

Living Room/Family Room: To dress up the rooms where your family spends the most time, use most of your Halloween decor ideas in these rooms.

Figurine Display. Use your mantle, a wall shelf, of even your coffee table to show an assortment of inexpensive Halloween figurines. Mantles are normally ignored until Christmas, but fireplaces are a great staging area for many seasonal displays.

Halloween Drape Tie-Backs. To add a spooky touch to your room, add a garland of skeleton heads as tie-backs to your drapes. These garlands are available at most dollar stores and one garland can be cut into two pieces to use on a pair of window treatments, you can use another garland across the top for just a little added Halloween fun.

Candy Containers. Halloween is all about candy. Display candy corn and other themed sweets in bowls for a decorative and delicious touch.

Dining Room: turn any October meal into a Halloween party with fun and unusual seasonal touches.

Spider Napkin Rings. Turn any napkin ring into a Halloween hit by working with hot glue to attach the spiders from inexpensive Halloween rings to a napkin ring. These are very economical and normally sold in bags at discount and dollar stores. A tiny expense for a distinctive decorative touch.

Placemats and Tablecloths. Get brave and buy either an orange or black tablecloth or placemats. This basic change brings immediate Halloween charm to any table.

Creepy Centerpiece. Add a touch of the surprising with a huge glass dish filled with tiny skulls. These can be purchased either in a bag or attached to a garland that can be coiled inside the dish.

Outside: Only the Christmas season surpasses Halloween when it comes to outside decorations. Be the talk of the neighborhood with decorations that outdo the expected jack-o-lanterns.

Gravestones. Transform your yard into a cemetery with headstones made from inexpensive foam board and a bit paint. Thinner than the ones it is possible to obtain in stores, you could individualize these for your family (rather dark), your chosen horror movie characters, or with humorous inscriptions.

Animated Products. Add a bit of the surprising with animated Halloween objects near your entry way. These characters can move or make noise, but remember that young children are often scared by these. Since gaining interest in recent years, these products are fairly cheap and accessible on the web and in most retail stores throughout the Halloween season.

Window Dressings. Change your windows into Halloween highlights with basic black poster board and just a little creativity. Cut out designs of bats, ghosts, and other Halloween figures (jack-o-lantern carving kits have excellent templates) from a full sheet of poster board. Tape the sheet over the inside of your windows, when you turn your lights on inside, they illuminate the cut out to show your scary designs to the people outside.

These suggestions will get you going on your Halloween decorating, use your imagination and see what spooky surprises it is possible to create.
