    Create your own spooky Halloween decoration and be prepared for some ooh’s and aah’s as well as a scream or two! Halloween has different connotations for some people. For many people though, it is just a great time to relax, enjoy the costumes and eat candy! Your spooky Halloween decoration ideas could be just the ticket to add a little something "extra" to the festivities.

    One spooky Halloween decoration idea is to create your own mini graveyard on your front lawn. Let your grass get a little scraggly, if you can stand it. You can buy pre-made tombstones made out of styrofoam. Or, make the tombstones yourself out of scrap plywood.

    Create a template and trace your tombstone pattern onto the wood and cut it out. Paint the wooden tombstones a gray color. To make it look more authentic, you can purchase spray paint that looks like textured stone.

    To finish your graveyard spooky Halloween decoration idea, do a little research on the internet for some epitaphs to write on your tombstone. Or, get creative with some character names. "Plant" your tombstones in the ground. For an extra special touch, drape a skeleton around one of the tombstones.

    To greet trick or treaters, create a dummy to prop up near your front door or have it sitting in a chair. This spooky Halloween decoration is easily made from old clothing that can be stuffed with tattered blankets or crumpled newspaper. Use old stuffed gloves to create makeshift hands. A pair of boots or shoes you don’t wear any more is perfect for the feet.

    You can make it appear that the dummy has lost his head by laying a pumpkin with a carved face on its side nearby. For more authenticity, attach fake spider webs on the body of the dummy and even the pumpkin head. Throw a few spiders on there along with some fishing worms and you have a great spooky Halloween decoration.

    Make your own ghost with an old white bed sheet. Use a ball or some other round object for the head. Drape the sheet over the round object and tie a knot under it to secure the head. Apply some fake blood on your ghost and hang it in a tree with a light shining on it for illumination. For a better effect, use a black light. This spooky Halloween decoration can also be rigged on a pulley system. When unsuspecting trick or treaters walk under your ghost, lower it using your pulley and watch the kids jump!

    Part of a spooky Halloween decoration is the atmosphere you create. Play recordings of scary animal sounds, foot stomping noises and doors slamming shut in the entryway of your home. Groaning sounds are effective too. Get some dry ice, put it in water and place in inconspicuous places to produce foggy effects. (This would be perfect for your graveyard scene!) Borrow one of those battery-operated cat toys that just sort of wobbles around. Place it in a box on your porch. Watch the trick or treaters give that jittery box a wide berth!

    Have some fun with your creations. Keep in mind your target audience. If it is little children, you might want to keep the fear factor down. For a teen or adult party, kick that "boo" factor up a few notches. Be prepared for laughter and tears with your spooky Halloween decoration.
