Have fairy lights? Some milk jugs? Then you can easily make these cuties! Just draw a spooky little face on your recycled containers, cut a whole out of the back, and stick the lights in those fellas: Bam! So cute and so easy. 


5. Party Cup Monsters


Milk jugs too much work? Grab some plastic cups, your trusty marker, tea lights, and your imagination! Your kids will love drawing some goofy-faced cups that can place all around your yard.


6. Cheese Cloth Ghosts

Hang these guys around the porch of your home. Easily made and easy to take care of. Best part about them is that the typical Vancouver rain will just add to their spookiness.

No time to carve pumpkins? Or kids too young for carving materials? Try this simple decoration, as long as they are in a lighted area they will be just as frightening as a normal jack-o-lantern.


8. Paper Rat Silhouettes

A rat is not a typical sight in Vancouver, so these are sure to make someone jump! Cut some of these little critters out and stick them on your stairs to cause your own "infestation".


9. Glow stick Eyes
