Nothng brings out the Halloween spirit like a flesh eating zombie

One of the best things of Halloween is that not only do you get to dress yourself up, but you also get to dress up your home. Both indoor and outdoor Halloween decorations are hugely popular this time of year. There is nothing trick or treaters enjoy more(except the candy) than to walk up to a really spooky looking house in search of Halloween goodies.

Here are some Halloween ideas to help get your creative juices rolling. There are no rules here. Just remember, the scarier the better. So let your imagination run wild and have fun with it.

Outdoor Halloween Decoration Ideas

Turn any lawn into a truly scary graveyard complete with zombies climbing up from the dirt

Whether you have a house or an apartment, any front door can transformed into a truly frightening entryway to another realm.

If you have a good size frontyard add a few foam tombstones and turn your lawn into a graveyard. Add a few prop arms and it will look like a Living Dead movie. Or set a giant cauldron in the middle of your rose garden and stand a couple of life sized witches next to it. Not scary enough? How about hiding some zombies behind the shrubs, tie a rope to it's next and whenever a kid walks by pull the rope and scare the hell out of the kids.

Try hanging sheets with a basketball in them to simulate a ghost. A few bats wouldn't hurt either. Let your imaginations run wild.

You can't go wrong with a simple pumpkin outside your front door. But why not spice it up a bit. Get some decorations that you can light up. Maybe hang a happy Halloween sign on your door. It doesn't have to be anything fancy.

Of course what Halloween is complete without some lights. I usually have a few strings of 15ft orange lights that I hang in various places in my living room. I wrap them aroung mirrors, picture frames, bookcases anything that looks cool. You can find orange, purple or black ligts. All pretty cool. Mix in some skeleton lights and a few strobes and you've got yourself one creepy looking house.

Happy decorating!
