Turn your home into the spookiest place. Here are some simple and easy do-it-yourself projects I got mostly from www.marthastewart.com, my fave online resource for crafting ideas.
Pumpkin Balloons and Oranges
To create these, jack-o-lantern balloons, all you need are orange helium inflated balloons. Using a black marker, draw an assortment of geometric shapes for the faces.
Tools and Materials
Black construction paper, Pencil, Scissors or cutter, Masking tape, Mice Templates
Print the mice templates. Trace the shapes onto black construction paper, and cut out. Mount on desired areas with masking tape.
Deranged Halloween Centerpiece
Critters crawling over your flower centerpiece can be disturbing.
Use your existing flower centerpieces at home and place plastic toy critters such as spiders, centipedes, snakes etc., which you can get in toy stores.
To make these unfriendly ghosts, snap one or two glow sticks (yellow or green) and insert them into a white balloon. Inflate the balloon and tie. Use a black marker to draw ghoulish faces.
How to do candles dripping with “blood”? Just light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the top and the side.
Candy Jar Treats
Encourage guests to have some candies and treats in shades of orange, white, purple, or black… gumballs, pretzels, gummies etc. Print labels and affix to a variety of glass containers.
Decorate an area of your home with orange and black paper lanterns preferably in different sizes. Hang them together in various lengths using nylon string.
Freshly Squeezed Blood
To make freshly squeezed blood, you need 2 teaspoons corn syrup mixed with 3 teaspoons water and several drops of red food coloring. Use it creatively.
Plain paper bags, scissors, grey or brown card paper, and candies
