Don’t forget about the front door. Use scrap pieces of fabric and double-sided tape to give it a funny look. Give it eyes, a mouth and some hair and make it look like your favorite Halloween character.

Make your own centerpieces for the Halloween dinner. Get some hurricane glasses, some candles and a bag of candy corn. Put candy corn in the transparent glasses will they’re about half full and then place a candle in the center of each one.

The mantel has to be decorated but it doesn’t necessarily have to be a big deal. Get some thin tree branches and twigs, make a bat garland using black duct tape and a few other decorations like pumpkins or vases with black or red roses.
