Simple Last Minute Halloween Party Decoration Ideas

1. Halloween Banner

Instead of stuffing treat bags with candy for the kiddos, use them to make a Halloween banner that can spruce up any area in minutes. I made this one with only six paper treat bags, some string, and hung it along the top of the piano. If you don't have treat bags, you can also use decorative Halloween napkins or empty candy wrappers that have fun and colorful graphics.

2. Creepy Crawly Food

Many stores carry plastic bugs and spiders this time of year. They aren't edible, but so easy to pop on top of snacks to give them that creepy look. I picked up a pack of 30 creatures for under $2.00.

3. Haunted Crackers

Usually only seen around Christmas time, party crackers are a good idea any time of year. I made these party crackers from empty toilet paper rolls and the extra paper napkins I had. I stuffed them with candy, a halloween skull ring, and a small skeleton. Directions on how to make these simple treasures can be found on the internet.  

4. Spooky Branches

This time of year you can pretty much find empty and dead branches in the yard or in a nearby wooded area.  They make instant Halloween decorations and look wonderful in the corner of the room or against a wall. They can help fill in a blank spot, just like this one above, and it's free.
