Cheap Halloween Decorations?
My fraternity has the biggest Halloween party every year on campus but we never really decorate it. This year we wanted to go all out and have the house and everything decorated really good but we do not want to spend a lot of money on the decorations. Anyone have any ideas for decorations that are really nice looking and cheap.. thanks
Well when i went to america
a few weeks ago
I noticed that a lot of the ‘dollar stores/99 stores’ had really neat decorations and stuff
you could try there
or at your local super-mart
How can I throw the best Halloween Party ever!?
If you were between the ages of 10-15 what would I have to do to make you never forget this party and make you want me to throw more parties
Chop shop theme:
Mummy wrap: 2 teams. One person gets a toilet paper roll and you have to wrap the other person fast until you are out of paper. First team done wins. Start with the first 2 on the team, the next team cant start until they first roll is done.
Witch hat toss:
Get 3 cheap pointed top witch hats at the dollar store. Use something as rings -3 of them. I just used heavy paper plates and cut out the center leaving a ring. Put the hats vertical in front of each other. Have guests stand behind a line and they have 3 chances to toss the rings on the tops of the hats.
Halloween toss game
Get 3 or 4 halloween pails or witch cauldron containers, or better yet mix them up. Put the vertical in line. Put small prize toys in the pails, the toys getter better the further away. Have guests stand behind a line and they have to throw a bean bag or a halloween item into the pails. They get to pick a gift out of each bucket they toss the item into. Give them 4 tries.
Use halloween plastic cups. Line them up in front of guests on a table. Give the guests candy corn. Have a timed game seeing how many they can get into the cuts throwing them across the table.
Have a jar full of candy corn or halloween candies and have papers outside the jar for guests to put their name and guess the amount. Whoever comes closest wins the jar full of candy.

THE MISERLY MAN
A Tale of Halloween Woe
Once upon a time in this very town
Lived a miserly man whose name was Brown
Alack and alas, on a Halloween night
He was terribly murdered because of spite
And ever since then he has roamed the earth
To warn and to haunt the place of his birth
Tonight we have some of his restless remains
So we’ll make you acquainted at once with his .. BRAINS
(Begin passing wet sponge)
And now your shuddering touch will know
The victim’s HAIR has continued to grow
(Pass corn silk, yarn or old wig)
He heard too well the tinkle of gold
It’s powerful EAR that now you hold
(Pass dried apple or dried peach)
His HAND is clammy, cold and still
No longer can it shoot to kill
(Pass rubber glove filled with cold oatmeal)
His EYES were small, but very keen
Though the kind deed of earth they’ve never seen
(Pass peeled grape)
He talked a lot when he was young
Now your feeling the remains of his TONGUE
(Pass a raw oyster)
He was sly and cruel from the start
So now you’ll feel his bleeding HEART
(Pass a raw piece of liver)
The TENDONS which helped his strong right arm
We pass to you, keep them from harm
(Pass some cooked spaghetti)
The meals he ate were coarse and dry
So his TEETH were strong, they never die
(Pass some dried kernels of corn)
But wait! He comes and stands within
He’s hunting for some friends or kin
Listen closely and above his moans
You’ll hear the rattle of his BONES!
(A ghost moves slowly through the darkness rattling a bunch of clothespins tied together loosely.
Exits with a moan. Lights on!)
You’ll need some pie tins (1 for each person playing), gummy worms, and cool whip. Put the same amount of worms in each pie tin, (the more the better!) and cover with cool whip. Blindfold each player. Don’t tell what’s in the pie, let them be surprised to find a worm dangling from their mouths (have a camera ready).
At the word of “Go!” all players dip into the pie with their mouths, trying to pull out as many worms as they can. The person to get all the worms out of their pie wins.
This game is messy, but it’s fun for the people playing as well as for those watching! Go eat some worms. Worms are good for you, lots of protein, low in fat, and eating worms will make you popular. Bon appetite’
Bobbing for eyeballs: Use gummy eyeballs.
Invite: Makes these or make your own using gummy body parts:

Homemade halloween decorations?
I want to make some cheap halloween deocrations for my room. I’m not having a party but I just love halloween and I wanted to spook up my room without spending all kind of money
Go to a Dollar Store and have fun with just 10.00..or..take a colorful, thin paper and make spider webs..ghosts are easy, too. Just useing fall colors as well as orange and black can make your space very festive!
Where can I find good Halloween decorations?
I’m getting ready for Halloween early and I have, literally, a box of decorations. I want to get centerpieces (i can put them together instead of just buying them premade), mantle decorations, stuff for my front porch, and everything inbetween. I don’t want cheap, plastic decorations that look tacky or are too scary. I want decorations that are like country style, maybe hay bales and little statues. Reasonable prices are better, but I don’t mind splurging a little. Any websites, stores, or ideas are great. Thanks!
Visit your local craft and fabric stores like Michael’s and JoAnn’s. They tend to put out Halloween decor earlier than anyone else to allow creative folks time to build things. I’m sure you can find your hay bales there.
Halloween Party Ideas?
I’m throwing a Halloween party for me a few of my good friends. We are teenagers, but not into the crazy party scene. We will just be passing out candy to trick-or-treaters and watching movies, and maybe playing Just Dance or Karaoke or something fun like that.
So, I’m mainly looking for ideas on cute foods, but also decorations, movies, and other things to do.
Party City has some pretty affordable decorations and you can get orange and black throwaway plates at any 99 cent store (some even have Halloween decorations).
Some cute food ideas (I love the hot dog mummies)
I love the popcorn idea too. For scary movies, you can watch things that are creepy but not too gory like Jeepers Creepers, The Ring, The Orphanage (different than the Orphan), the original Halloween, Ghostbusters is pretty funny, or just any cheesy 80s movie like Night of the Creeps, American Werewolf in London or the Howling. They’re a lot of fun.
Hope you have a good time!
