 This spider bag will either scare your guests right away or they'll just be fascinated and slowly understand the trick behind this decoration. Although the spiders look like real, they are of course only ornamental insects, cleverly attached to the bag.

Inside there are also some spiders inserted to enhance the scary effect

The next idea is very creative and original. Even if you can not get so many pumpkins, few are enough to achieve the same effect. Carve the pumpkins with grave inscriptions, as shown below, and place the alleged pumpkin gravestones in your garden.

If desired, you can also equip the gravestones with candles
