Cut a branch. Spray paint both an old bleach bottle and the branch with fast drying black spray paint. Place one small set of white Christmas lights on the branches and hang hollow plastic pumpkins found in the dollar store.

It is best to fill the plastic bottle with water or sand to keep it from tipping.

These are scarecrow and pumpkin decorated electric tealight holders. They could also be made as decorative treat jars

Materials

Instructions

  1. Wash and dry a jar of any size. Remove labels.
  2. Spray paint jar and lid (flesh, beige for Scarecrow, terracotta or orange for pumpkin). Allow to dry.
  3. Glue lid (inside facing upward) to top of jar (I used E-6000). If you desire to use these as treat jars, do not glue lid to top of jar.
  4. Ad

  5. Decorate face as desired using paint pens or craft paint.
  6. Spray lightly with a clear sealer to keep paint from scratching.
  7. For scarecrow, glue raffia around brim of hat, trim for bangs. To make hat, decorate a straw hat with artificial flowers, buttons and ribbon to your liking. I painted a wooden triangle to resemble a crow! Attach hat to lid (I again used E-6000).
  8. Place electric tealight on lid. Because of the raffia and straw hat this is extremely FLAMMABLE, I recommend using an electric tea light instead of a regular candle.

Made in a variety of shapes and sizes, these look adorable on a mantle or porch. And can be used year after year!

Editor's Note: This project should never be used with a traditional candle flame, it is very flammable. Only battery operated tealights or other non-flame candle substites should be used.

We are going to do the tangerines as Jack o' Lanterns this year at our fall harvest party. It is important to wash the tangerines and then dry them and then put faces on them with Sharpies. The children will do the faces.

Oranges tend to not stand up and need to be in a bowl, but they are great and healthy! You can get a lot more out of tangerines, there are so many of them and they are so cute.

Painted and decorated jars create a cute Halloween display.

Lay down newspapers and spray recycled glass jars in a well ventilated area. Spray paint clean jars using an assortment of paints. To create the dripping black look, spray heavily and allow to run down the sides of the jar. Spray orange, white, and gold for a candy corn look. Have fun, you can't "mess" these up.

Create labels you have hand written or printed on your computer (use a spooky font) to assorted layers of scrapbooking papers. I used terms I thought would be found in a mad-scientist's laboratory: eye of newt, witches toenails, bat wings, etc.

Fill jars with candy (witches toe nails are candy corn!) Display in a group for a cute Halloween decoration.

A great tip for one rubber glove was done in the sixties. We filled it with plaster of Paris and produced a slick hand, that was used for jewelry display or for Halloween fun.

Fish bowl painted and used as Halloween candy bow. These type of fish-bowls can be found at thrift stores for next to nothing. I purchased this one at Goodwill for 75 cents. I hand-painted candy corn onto the glass with basic acrylic craft paint.

My nephew and I love Casper. So, for Halloween we would decorate with Casper eyes all over the house. The most unexpected places the better.

I was wondering if anybody can give me ideas for decorating for an inside Trunk or Treat. We had it figured out for outside, but we must change it now. We only have 1 day to do it.

What is a trunk or treat?

Many churches & schools are doing it. At the schools the families go to the school parking lot & can decorate there trunk/car & give the treats from there. It is the same as trick or treat but you go from car to car instead of house to house. It is much safer than trick or treat. But now they are doing it inside the buildings.

I saw a home where they covered the windows with paper the color of the character they wanted to portray (orange-jack-o-lantern, white- ghost) and simply cut out scary eyes/nose/mouth and covered the holes with another color of paper. These were the entire size of the window, which made them look very cool! I think this idea would also work with giant silhouettes of black cats, witches, bats, etc. Have fun!

Photo Description
This hat has web designed tulle around the rim and in a large bow and long tail trailing down in back. There is also a spider ribbon intertwined in it.
There are multiple 2 inch spiders crawling on the back of the large spider on top of the hat. The large spider is made of a piece of black felt slightly stuffed with tissue with google eyes. The legs are some floral arrangement pieces.

Photo Description
This giant spooky spider ceiling decoration couldn't be easier to make. We took two balloons and put them in a black plastic bin bag (trash bag) and knotted the top. The legs are simply long lengths taken off the roll of bags, but not separated or opened. We tied them between the balloons to make the spider's waist. The eyes are cut from paper and pasted on.

All that was needed to keep the spider in place on the ceiling was sticky tape because the decoration is so light (but be careful you don't ruin your paint work if you do this). We also laced white cord around the spider to give the appearance of a web.
