Trick-or-Treaters. One of the easiest ways to welcome trick-or-treaters to your door this Halloween season is to create a neighborhood Halloween decorations with treats! A great way to encourage kids to come and visit is to place a few treats in a bowl on your porch or front lawn. Add some festive Halloween music and have a neighborhood "trick-or-treat" party, then invite your trick-or-treaters when they come to your house. Have a small prize for each child (like a miniature pony or cat) and some Halloween candy for party guests who bring an item. This is a fun way to help kids and neighborhood kids get excited about coming to your house on Halloween.


Spider webs with candles. Create creepy spider webs with white candles, and put them around your yard or patio. It looks like the spiders are coming to your house! These spider web Halloween decorations also make a cute, unique centerpiece for a table or countertop Halloween party. Be sure to use caution around children; when making spider webs, be careful not to use glue or sharp glass to poke your little trick-or-treaters!

Skeletons and spiders. Adding creepy-crawly pumpkins to your front lawn or porch is a fun way to welcome trick-or-treaters to your door on Halloween night. You can place these creepy critters in different spots around your yard. The trick is to make sure that the spiders and Skeletons you place in your porch or in your yard look as scary as possible and convey the message that you are welcoming evil spirits on Halloween night.


Fog filled monster hand signs. What could be more frightening than a fog-filled graveyard? Place some black trash bags on your lawn or beside your driveway and put a sign on your porch declaring "Halloween Skeletons" so that people can recognize the fearful effect of these creatures upon Halloween night. You can create your own scary fog by filling a large garbage bag with a mixture of flour, water, baking soda, milk, oil, and food coloring.


Halloween crafts. If your family is big on Halloween crafts, consider creating some of your own Halloween crafts this year to welcome trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. If you want to add some color to your Halloween party, why not turn to sugar cookies into scary faces or spooky lettering?
