  • Nature makes decorations for you in the fall. Get some baskets and fill them with colored leaves, buckeyes..if in your area, acorns gourds, mini pumpkins etc. Candles, bowls of candy corns. Your local craft store will have tons and tons of things this time of year. Google fall decorating ideas and boom 1000 of sites and ideas.

  • I just got some dollar store picture frames, put in a piece of dark colored paper, painted leaves and used them to stamp the paper...I made some and the kids did too. I lined them on the mantle---so cute.

  • garage sales usually have holiday/seasonal stuff for sale but if garage sales are done for you then i would start with the cheap stuff like fake spider web and fake spiders. you could look outside like PP said and collect leaves and sometimes if there's gardens around, people will grow pumpkins and sell them for cheap. you could always make a clothes line somewhere in your house and hang up your childrens halloween art with clothes pins or frame them.
