3. Hipster pumpkins

Pumpkin carving can get mighty messy so why not showoff your painting skills instead. Perhaps you could even get guests to BYO their own creations and have a prize for the best looking pumpkin.

4. Mummy mason jars

Mummify recycled jars with bandaging and craft store purchased googly eyes. Just don’t forget to add the tea light candles and light when it gets darker.

If you need a helping hand there are thousands of Airtaskers ready to help you out.

5. Glowing ghosts

You can stick these glowing balloons all throughout the house, even in some cupboards for an extra scare. Just crack a glow stick and place into a blown up balloon.

6. Pumpkin cooler

At the end of the day it’s still a party and drinks need to remain cold at all times. Staying with the theme, crave out the inside of a pumpkin and place in a glass bowl with ice.

7. Classy garland

It doesn’t have to be all fake blood and pumpkins – use colours orange, black and white in new original ways. To make this garland just buy different bits of ribbon (even ask for offcuts to save money) and away you go.

8. Bloody candle

Who are we kidding, it’s the one time of the year where it’s blood-themed decorations are acceptable. This is simple to recreate by melting red candle wax onto a white candle.

9. Scary bottles
