What is that one thing that you can't go without for Halloween? For me it's spider webbing! I use that stuff everywhere.

Yes! People have told me they are old and no one should use them, I love tombstones! I don't prefer cheesy ones but I've found some great ideas online on how to dress them up to be scary, classy, or whatever style your looking for for your haunt or party.
Tombstones are a staple.

Definitely jack o'lanterns. Probably my favorite decoration of all for Halloween.

Creepy cloth, faux candles, and spiderweb!

I use creepy cloth on tables and draped over anything! Spiderweb can make a blank wall look decorated very cheaply and faux candles set a great mood!

I have on wall in my living that is very large and I used black spiderweb and UV reactive spray to decorate and it came out great. Everyone loves it because there was still light in the room but not enough to distract from the movies.

I'm not so into the designer pumpkin scenes. They're neat, but look like nothing till lighted (not to say that I wouldn't have one....I saw a headless horseman scene with bridge and all not from pattern that was GORGOUS one guy did a number of years back I'd love to have a copy of in a Funkin). I've always loved the simplicity and beauty of Pumpkinrots carvings. Myself, I tend to go for resin / ceramic pumpkins and Funkins over real just to re-use ea year.

Some of Pumpkinrots real ones over the years below:

If that doesn't get your Halloween juices flowing, nothing will.

To me, Jack o'lanterns are just the quintessential Halloween icon. You can't see a carved pumpkin and NOT think of Halloween. Best of all, they can be designed to convey any mood (scary, silly, cheerful) or theme. I love fun patterns and the fancy-schmancy ones, like on Pumpkin Rot, but to me, a good old eyes-nose-mouth Jack face is the best.

I gotta agree with JOL. Even people that won't go all out on Halloween will put out carved pumpkins.

Jack-o-lanterns and black cats. For years I collected black cat decorations or decorations that incorporated black cats somewhere within the theme. And then one dark night about a week before Halloween, a real black kitten somehow appeared in my (fenced) back yard. I don't know where he came from. He's grown into a beautiful silky cat and I always joke that he's now my favorite Halloween decoration.

That's awesome!
