6. Halloween tree

We don’t know who busts out the Christmas tree this early in the year but you can be the first! Putting together a Halloween tree doesn’t take much work because all you need to do is to hang up some ornaments with the right lighting. A Halloween tree can be a hodge podge of anything spooky or it can be thematic too such as movie monsters only or skulls and bones. If you’re feeling extra lazy, get a black Christmas tree (or spray paint the old green one) and hang up the usual Christmas ornaments.

7. Spooky straw toppers

Another simple way to liven up a party with Halloween décor is to surprise guests with spooky straw toppers. Easily made using coloured papers, you just need to cut out shapes such as bats, skulls, ghosts, black cats, witch’s pointed hats or pumpkins. Once it’s all cut out, just push them through the straws. An alternative is to tie a black ribbon on the straw and make it look like a bat.
