DIY Medusa headpiece. Instructions from poster: I bought cheap plastic snakes at the $1 store (a few dozen in a pack), wire, a double banded headband, and a can of gold spray paint. I wired the snakes into a great little tiara and then sprayed the whole thing gold and I really loved how it turned out.

Make a spooky mirror. Get an old mirror with a frame. Remove the backing. With heavy gloves, spray some oven cleaner on the back, wait about 5 minutes, rub off. Now just tape a spooky picture. Put backing back on. Voila! Scary face looking back at you. more mirrors/portraits - haunted house-ish if you have several of them?
Trunk or Treat. Organize a party for the children in the community. Have some residents decorate the backs of their cars (as such, for one example). That will be where the children can go "trick-or-treating" with a guardian without having to move from house to house. You could even plan a few party games in the rest of the open space.
Trunk or Treat... I LOVE THIS IDEA!
