Or why not get the children involved by making your own spooky decorations.

Spider Web Wreath

To create this wreath, fold 2 sheets of black paper accordion-style (about 1.5″ inch folds). Proceed to fold each in half lengthwise. Cut the top of the fold diagonally (you should be left with a pointed end when it’s unfolded). Then, cut three rectangles out of the paper, about half an inch apart, on each segment. Once both sheets of paper are cut and folded, tie them together tightly at their center folds. Take each loose edge of folded paper and attach it to the end next to it with glue. Soon enough, the paper will open up like a spider web.

Keep out doorway

An unwelcoming entryway is perfect for Halloween. To get the look, stretch cobwebs to somewhat cover the door and secure them with masking tape. Cut cardboard to resemble various-size wood slats. Paint a “Keep Out” sign on two of the slats and glue bolts to each piece of cardboard. Tape the slats to the door and you’re done.
