Halloween Spider Webs
Spider webs are a great way to decorate for Halloween quickly. You can purchase ready-made, spooky Halloween spider webs or you can make your own. Obviously the store-bought spider webs are faster and much, much easier! Hang the cobwebs inside and out: toss them over staircase banisters, over fireplace mantels and hang them from light figures indoors, or hang them from trees and off of porch railings outside. Add some plastic spiders and/or bats to the cobwebs for added effect!

Giant Hairy Spiders
Here's a fun and easy Halloween decorating idea that really doesn't involve a lot of actual labor: Make giant, hairy spiders using large, disk-shaped magnets and black pom-poms for the body, and bumpy pipe cleaners for the legs. All you really need to put everything together is some good tacky glue. Allow about two hours for the glue to dry before you start putting the spiders out in frightening spots.
If this seems like too much work, never fear: You can always just buy a monster hairy spider decoration (you have a ton of choices!).

Carved Halloween Pumpkins
A well-carved pumpkin makes for a fantastic Halloween decoration. You'll want to carve a Jack-o-Lantern for the front porch area, where trick-or-treaters are sure to see it - but you can also carve additional pumpkins and place them throughout your home. You don't have to be an expert carver to make a great, carved pumpkin: Use Halloween pumpkin carving templates to guide you and you can't go wrong!

Add some black crows to the bare branches around your house, to give visitors a chill when they drop by. You can find good-sized, plastic, feathered ravens or crows at many Halloween stores, both brick-and-mortar and online (some might even have light-up eyes!).

Here's a cute and easy DIY idea. Take a round doormat (or cut a 3x4 rectangular one into a circular shape with a 36 inch diameter.) Draw your best spiderweb design with chalk on the mat, cut a clothesline to fit on top of your pattern and use heavy duty glue to attach the pieces together. Now that's crafty!

Pumpkin Candy Dish
Sure, you can purchase pumpkin candy dishes to use for Halloween decorating, but why not make one of your own? If you're already planning on doing a little pumpkin carving this Halloween, just grab an extra pumpkin. Make sure it's very deep and wide, then hollow it out (you know, take out the innards). Clean the pumpkin well, place a bowl inside and fill it with candy corns and other Halloween treats. You can also fill the bowl with a great Halloween-themed dip and use it as a focal point for your Halloween party table spread.

Nothing says super creepy like having your own graveyard, right? Adding some tombstones to the front yard, near the walkway or curb (where guests or passers-by will be able to get a good look), is a great way to decorate for Halloween. You can make your own foam tombstones (personalizing them!) or you can purchase ready-made tombstones to save time. Some tombstones might even be glow-in-the-dark and many have lights to make sure everyone sees them.

Pumpkin Spider Votives
Carve up some mini-pumpkins and fill them with tea lights to make the spider's body. Add black pipe cleaners for the spider's legs and voila! A super quick and easy, whimsical Halloween decorating idea come to life! Consider using flameless tea lights - no mess, and they'll last much longer.
