While blow up ghosts and plastic skeletons dressed up can cost a lot, taking a simple plastic skeleton can create such an interesting effect. Cool Halloween decorations follow plastic skeletons everywhere. An old white dress can be purchased from a thrift shop or found in your closet.

Create giant gothic lanterns using nothing more than our instructions, clip-art designs, and simple supplies. First, print out all of the following templates: this snake lantern, another spooky snake option, and the frog lantern as well. To begin, cut out one of the lantern templates, and trace it four times, side by side, on black paper. Use a bone folder to crease the areas where the sides meet before cutting it out. Print four copies of your chosen design onto vellum using a laser printer, and then cut each piece just larger than the frame's windows. Tape the vellum into a frame, and form into a lamp shape before taping the edges. To finish, cut a 26-inch length of wire and twist a loop in the middle of it; poke the wire ends through the paper to make two holes at the edge of the lantern. Use pliers to roll ends of wire to secure; and then use monofilament to hang two battery-operated votive candles, taped end to end, inside the lantern. Finally, use twine and a removable advise hanger to suspend the lantern in your chosen space.

Using wood and spray paint, make teeth for your house. The teeth are free handed to create a menacing look. There are edges on the sides to hold the teeth up so that there is no need to use nails.
