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.
Sometimes, there's safety in numbers. But this Halloween, there's fear—and fabulousness—in a flock. To summon a swarm of nocturnal nomads, use our downloadable template to cut out your own—stick on removable adhesive dots, bend the wings for extra eeriness, and let 'em loose. To spook-ify your nearby windows, mirrors, or your fridge, use vinyl clings instead of paper cutouts.
The head and arms are made from a heavy weight plastic, not out of foam. They are full human size with the face being 8" from chin to top of forehead. There is a concealed stake included to keep the head from blowing away and both "arms" are stakes. It will be a great add to any creepy Halloween graveyard. Just add a little mulch around it to give the appearance of crawling out of the ground. The color is darker than the picture and I like it!
Jaunty jack-o'-lanterns, foreboding bats—these are Halloween-appropriate versions of the classic paper-doll chain. To make it, print our template onto card stock, fold the paper to its width, trace, and cut it out. Then, use scissors for the outline, and a craft knife or hole punch for facial features and smaller details. Intersperse with fringed garlands to add color.

What can't you do with these posable skeletons? We have wasted literal hours scrolling through scenes that people have set up both on their lawns and in their houses. All it takes is a little creativity and time and they can take on all sorts of personality.

Since they're life size you can pair them with whatever accessories you have on hand! Just a warning, when you get one you'll probably want to a couple more skeletons.
Windows always come into play in scary movies. In horror movies, a villain first appears by peering into the kitchen window when the main character’s back is turned. In ghost stories, some pale ghost girls is always peering out the attic window in a room that no one has ever been in years. It makes sense to incorporate windows into your Halloween display. People walking past your house are sure to get a shiver when you hang our window accessories in your house. Scroll on through our window decorations and you’re sure to find a few looks to bring your house decorations to a whole new level.
While hanging a full door covering can be difficult, making a mummy on your door is completely worth it. Bandages or paper tape can be used to create an opaque white sheet on your door. Black construction paper can be cut into a mouth and pupils for the eyes. White construction paper is used to create the corneas of the eyes. However, make sure you leave the knob and whatever locks are on the door uncovered – otherwise it’ll be a scary situation. The best part about this fun Halloween front door decoration is that the bandages can be as thick or as thin as you want them to be.

Glowing lights can catch the eye of trick-or-treaters from blocks away. And don’t forget to play some scary music so people can get some spooks before they get their sweets.

Beautiful butterflies seem to float off the pages of a dusty old tome, growing as they flit around this library. You can make these creatures in different sizes for your display.

To make this clever wreath, fold 2 sheets of black paper accordion-style (about 1.5" inch folds), and then fold each in half lengthwise so you have two segments. Cut the top of the fold diagonally so you'll have a pointed end when it's unfolded. Then, cut three rectangles out of the paper, about half an inch apart, on each part of the segment. Once you have folded and cut both sheets of paper, tie them together tightly at their center folds. Take each loose edge of folded paper and using a glue stick, attach it to the end next to it. You'll see the paper will start to open up like a web!

If you want the perfect jump scares, then consider an animatronic that's motion or sound censored. Imagine the look on a trick-or-treater's face when they reach for candy in a bowl on a dummy's lap, only for the creature to come to life when they get too close! Or have one of our "bump and go" animatronics roam around any room of your home, or down a long and ominous hallway. From twisted clowns and scary scarecrows to witches and horrifying zombies, our wide selection of Halloween animatronics means that you can find the perfect characters for your haunted home.
Pumpkins with scary lit up faces are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s lips this Halloween. To make sure this front porch decoration is visible from the street, paint some of the lighted pumpkins white and the rest black or leave orange. Decorate an old planter or use a neutral colored one that doesn’t distract from your handiwork. Use a sturdy dowel that can carry the weight of five small to medium-sized pumpkins. Alternate pumpkin colors when placing. Hide that electrical cord as best you can so people see your decorating savvy rather than a thick orange or black trip hazard.
