October is a great time to show off your creativity with a festive Halloween party, but the expenses can add up. Here are a few great ways you can host your fete while avoiding scary high costs.

First, adding a bit of tonic water to your Halloween punch will give your drinks a ghoulish glow under a black light. This can work for other recipes that require a little water, like Jell-O.

To add a fiendish flair to ordinary white candles, melt a red candle over them and let the wax drip down the sides. This easy trick will add a ghostly flavor to any party!

Another crafty way to light up your Halloween is by making your own creature cup-lights. Start by drawing some creepy faces onto upside-down colored plastic cups with a black marker. Once you have your designs, simply place some LED tealights underneath to bring your monsters to life. For safety, remember to only use LED tealights, not the regular ones.

Lastly, your smaller pumpkins can still get some big scares with this easy trick: Carve out a space for the mouth, add a pair of plastic fangs, push in few pins for the eyes and you'll have some scary squash to decorate the house with.

Plastic fangs also make clever napkin rings. Try putting them around the dinner table to add a some extra "bite" to your meals.

If you're thinking of throwing a Halloween party, keep these tips in mind. You'll see that you can keep it fun and creepy without it costing frightening fortune.
