The Color Red:
Adding the color red automatically sends up a warning flag for most of us. It means emergency or stop, so draping the color red around your door, or adding even just a few drips of fake blood here or there will have people alluding to the fact that there is danger nearby.
Even just a disturbing pumpkin carving can throw people off of their game. If you’re trying to think of an inexpensive, creative way to scare, then this might be the perfect route to go.
Usually the unknown is what scares people the most. Mummies and ghosts are a great way to creep your guests out, as they approach your door. You can purchase already made figures or handcraft some of your own with paper mache and chicken wire.
