Fill your ice bucket with creepy cubes: Freeze cubes with tiny plastic spiders inside. (Note: Not appropriate for small children.) If you're serving punch: Fill sterile plastic gloves with water, freeze, then peel off the gloves, and you have "ice hands" to add to your punch bowl.
Use hollowed-out mini pumpkins as candle holders (small votive candles work best inside).
Suture the Stem
Don't pick up a pumpkin by its stem; it might break off. If it does, try reconnecting the stem to the pumpkin with toothpicks.
