One of the best ways to decorate for Halloween is with Halloween stand ups (also called cut outs). These are cardboard lifesize stand ups that are freestanding and can be placed anywhere you have a flat surface around your home or office.
These are very inexpensive to order and have shipped to you because cardboard is lightweight, yet they are as tall as an adult unless they are portraying children. This cardboard stand up of Lock, Shock and Barrel from the Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton is just one example.
