Speaking of bringing your décor to live, how about using some pumpkins to do so? Yes, all you have to do is, tap on your painting skills and paint facial features on the pumpkins. Since there is no end to the number of colors you can use, let your creativity flow.
However, if you are not as good with paint and brush, you can always bring to surface your origami skills for making masks for your pumpkins. They can be scary for Halloween, or the fun ones that kids would love when they visit you for dinner.
