El Cheapo Halloween Decor

Our little soiree is right around the corner, and I'm still trying to get the house ready...cheaply.  So I'm having to get creative...crazy, right!?  I've come up with just a couple of ideas that anyone can throw together to add a little some'n-some'n to your room.

Here I bought a pack of ping-pong balls from the Dollar Tree and simply drew on them to look like eyes.  I crumpled up some aluminum and threw them in a small vase.  Rocket science, I know.  

 They remind me of the Ben Stein dry eyes commercial!



and for this bad boy I took an otherwise uncoordinating candle holder and wrapped it in aluminum foil.   Too easy?  Sorry kids, that's how I roll... (not quite sure where that came from)

Finally, I made some black felt bunting to hang from the ceilings.  Sorry I don't have a picture of that, so you'll have to use your imagination... ready?  Black. Felt. Flags. Hanging on red yarn.

So, I'm sure I've just blown your minds with cheap decor ideas.  Have any of your own you'd like to share?  I'm all ears!

Ciao,
Lucia
