1. DIY Pumpkin Balloon Backdrop: The best part about Halloween is the pumpkins (duh), so why not make one giant pumpkin for a backdrop? Blow up different sized balloons and attach them to a wire frame for a colorful frame every ghoul or zombie will enjoy. (via The House that Lars Built)


2. Dem Dry Bones: This is probably the only time you could use 鈥渃hic鈥 and 鈥渟keleton鈥 in the same sentence. String together dark florals and plastic bones to make an elegantly spooky backdrop that鈥檚 sure to complement any costume. (via The Alison Show)

5. Party Cheap Bloody Wall Backdrop ($17): Are slasher flicks your thing? This one鈥檚 for the ultra-spooky peeps and all the Dexter fans out there. If you鈥檇 rather DIY than buy, splatter red paint on a white paper tablecloth and let dry before sticking it to the wall.


6. Vinyltastic Large and Small Spiders Decorators Pack ($25): Line your walls with a group of dangling spiders to freak out your friends.
