Halloween Idea #61
If you want to display your Halloween spirit on the outside of your house, why not hang out a banner or flag on October 1st?You can find all kinds of Halloween flags and banner during the Halloween season. Hang one or two up around your house to show your Halloween spirit! You can find all kinds of flags and banners at local mass retailers and arts and crafts stores like Michael's that get the Halloween stuff out early.

If you have a flag pole why not fly Old Glory and hang a Halloween flag right under it? We found a very cool black flag with a Jack-O-lantern on it. Unfortunately the wind is strong where we live and there is nothing left of it but a foot of faded black nylon. Next time, I'll use clear nylon thread and sew the seams on it a few times to reinforce them!

Halloween Idea #63
We had a friend that sold her house and was moving into an apartment. She loves Halloween and would always decorate her home and yard. Now that she'd be living in an apartment complex she wondered what she could still do for Halloween and we came up with this idea for her. Click here to see what we did.

If you live in a small apartment, there's no reason why you can set up some nice life sized diorama-like scenes around if you make the right use of the space you have!  It's easy and you may have most of what you need if you are one to decorate for Halloween. If not, you can buy the basics at most mass market retailers, any local Halloween store or arts and crafts store.

Halloween Idea #69
Dress your pets up for Halloween! Lots of cool costumes are available for them. But only do this if they like it, don't force your pet to do anything that seems to bother them! See more here!

If you are having a party or a lot of trick or treaters, be sure to put nervous pets in a bedroom or someplace where they won't be startled by all the noise. Some pets don't appreciate Halloween. You don't want your dog or at to run out an open door or be frightened by party guests. It's much better to put them in a room for the evening with food, water and a litter box (for cats).

Some dogs don't mind being in the spotlight and will love being dressed up and shown off for Halloween!
