Create this arm-bone frame to display our clip-art sea-life print or another suitably spooky work of art. To make your own, download an illustration of urchins and coral. Take the file to a copy center to have it printed full-size (24 by 36 inches). You can choose a print of your own in a similar size instead. Using spray adhesive, adhere the print to foam board. Since you will not need the shoulder blades, unscrew them from the arms. Determine placement of arm bones: Place them on foam board, so their elbows are at the corners and hands reach along the sides. Anchor one arm at a time to foam board: Using a tapestry needle threaded with monofilament, and starting on the back side, sew through the foam board, loop monofilament over a bone, then push the needle back through; knot. Repeat a few times in the same spot. Then repeat this stitching in several other spots along the arm.
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.
Make a big bang with a tumble of pumpkins studded like the starry bands of the Milky Way. Pick a few to be part of the inter- stellar arc, then hollow them out from below and punch holes in them using a drill and two different-size bits. Have fun with the placement of your planets and stars—random patterns have universal appeal. Arrange them with a few uncarved gourds, tuck battery-powered candles inside, and imagine a galaxy far, far away.
What is it about Halloween that transforms ordinary people into seekers of anything dark and unknown?  Cemeteries by night, horror films by day and one of the most popular and oldest Halloween traditions to date - the haunted house!    A haunted house is defined as a building that is the center for supernatural occurrences or paranormal phenomena.  To create these chilling and disturbing effects when designing your own haunted house, you’ll need some amazing animated special effect props that are sure to terrify.  Here at Halloween Express, you’ll find the decorations and props needed that will give your haunted house the illusion that actors, animatronics, sound, lighting and other special effects bring to today’s haunted houses that make them such nightmarish venues.  A good haunted house should terrify, shock and disorient its patrons and then have them laughing at their own fears upon exiting. 
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. White tulle or mesh can be purchased as well for a fuller look. If the dress is too long for the skeleton, use leftover fabric to create a veil. A spooky Specter bride is preceded by pumpkins as she walks down the aisle – which is your front porch and steps in this case. It doesn’t even have to be a bride. It could simply be a ghost!
