    My Best DIY Decorating tip is using halloween decorated cupcakes as part of table top decor, on the kitchen island, side tables, and even the coffee table!

    My best decorating tip is simple, fast and easy. That package of fake oak tree leafs in hues of orange, red and yellows are scattered along every candle, pumpkin, table decoration and even around my front porch. You can take a amazing decorative display and make it more amazing with splashes of these colorful leaves. I lose a few each year when the wind blows them into the yard and they get raked up. These and colorful harvest ribbon go miles in my home.

    Def Freddy Krueger, and my tip isn't really for decorating, but more for a Halloween party. Hang strings of fishing line from the ceiling in dark areas. People will think it's cobwebs against their faces.

  9. Rosalee says:

    I like to use some cute decorations and some scary ones.

  10. V Du says:

    Zombies are by far the scariest. They just don't die and multiply like flies. You will eventually run out of supplies and not only will they kill you, they force you to live the rest of your undead life as one of them.
