You can make a lot of cheap Halloween decor by utilizing items that can be found around your home. Let's take a look at a few cheap Halloween decor ideas that you might want to try this year.

The only items you will need to make a scarecrow are a pair of men's clothing and some stuffing. A pair of Jeans and a flannel shirt make the best scarecrow clothing.
