GHOSTLY HALLOWEEN DÉCOR
Properly preparing for Halloween means getting into the spirit by decorating the front door, porch, windows, and yard. These penny-pinching ideas for homemade Halloween props keep the holiday fun without spooking the neighbors or ruining a budget. When the big night comes, set up a smartphone speaker to play haunting music or sound effects found online (a witch's cackle, a door creaking open, a cat hissing). Replace a porch light with a dim or colored light bulb to create a spooky mood, and dress up in costume to pass out candy. With these ghoulish decorations, your house will be the talk of the street.
