As Halloween approaches, you'll probably fall into one of two camps. The first, people who pull out their fall decorations at the end of August and have neatly packed totes full of plastic pumpkins, spooky spiders, and fake cobwebs to deck their halls for Halloween. The second camp, and perhaps, the more heavily populated one, is made up of those who consistently wait till two minutes before Halloween to think about decorating. They're forced to think of last minute Halloween decorations using things they already have in the house.
If you fall into the last minute decor camp, chances are the thought of decorating your house is just another "to-do" on your long list. Along with getting the kids their costumes, thinking of something somewhat festive for yourself to wear, rounding up Halloween candy, and mapping out your trick-or-treating quest, decorating for the holiday might be low on your priorities.
However, whether you're decorating for a big party or just for your family's enjoyment, getting your house holiday-ready doesn't have to be stressful. These decoration ideas are all just as festive and spooky as any you'd buy at a store and, to sweeten the deal, all use items you can probably find laying around your house.
