Since cars and making things are two of my favorite things, my kids and I made some Halloween season decorations based on the some of the favorite images we've seen at the park. Here's what we did:

We painted some orange traffic cones to look like Jack-O-Lanterns.

We made spider webs out of an old chain, discount store wrench set and old washers.

We paper-mached a toy car to look like Ramone's "calavera" (sugar skull) art.
