Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with "blood" (actually red candle wax). Fill a cup or a small pail with sand, and plant white candles inside so they stand upright. Light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the tops and sides, being careful not to burn yourself. Let wax cool completely before removing candles from sand.

Sure, a jack-o'-lantern or two is nice—and certainly classic!—but haven't you already been there and done that? This year, it's time to step it up a notch in terms of both originality and spookiness. Whether you opt for something more traditional (think: a few painted pumpkins, pots of fresh fall flowers, and a fall wreath or two) or aim for something a little more advanced (a DIY array of festive lanterns could be nice, or a pair of eerie-looking "floating hats"), we can practically guarantee there's something on our list for you.
Protect your work surface from paint using newspaper or a drop sheet. Place the tin container on the newspaper with the opening facing down. Following the instructions provided on the paint can, apply the orange spray paint to the outside of the tin container. Repeat as needed until you achieve the desired coverage (in our case, 5-6 coats of spray paint were needed for full coverage). Leave it to dry fully before moving on to the next steps.

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.
These craft tricks aren't too spooky—most are tame enough for younger ghouls and goblins who would enjoy them throughout a Halloween event. From floral elements to furniture that you can temporarily modify, there are many how-tos to get you in the spooky spirit. Using crafty essentials like hot glue and shears, you can create essentials like cobwebs and other visual effects for tabletops, bookcases, lighting fixtures, and even staircases, which can be transformed into a trick-of-the-eye rodent landscape with a pair of scissors and craft paper in all the right places. If you want to up the scream factor, try making a a modified mirror, which can become hauntingly eerie with just a few additions. While twinkling candlelight casting mysterious shadows is a mainstay on front porches for trick or treaters, you can bring these elements inside too with handmade lanterns that can be made a few days in advance. 
Tempt your Halloween party guests with an array of candies masquerading as botanical or nautical artifacts. To begin, fill large glass jars with sweets, and then mark each jar with a label that sounds convincing—here, the meringues are "jellyfish skeletons"—while being completely made up. If you don't have a cabinet, you can create your own by arranging the jars in wooden cubbies or crates; we painted these a deep slate gray.

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.
Nothing will bring your haunted scenes to life quite like one of our Halloween animatronics. Here at Spirit, our Halloween animatronics are more than just moving and talking props; they're characters all of their own, with each featuring a different backstory. And the best part? You can decide whether or not to include in your haunted home, or to create your own stories for these horrifying creatures. You won't have to worry about your guests finding your haunted home to be a bit lackluster (and you won't have to hire your family members to jump out and scare people every time!) when you set up these animatronics in any or every room.
This Halloween door decoration is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re imaginative, crafty and enjoy a challenge, then this decoration is just for you. Purchase a pair of mannequin legs and decorate with paint or cover with a pair of old stockings. You can get as detailed as you want with this project – from the shoe selection to the number of cracks in the wall – it’s all up to you. The plywood base is painted a matte black. Use foam core to simulate broken plaster – align to create a circle – and now you have the dark hole.
The level of detail in this zombie head is amazing. The paint job on it was terrible and minimal. However a touch of acrylic paint in the shadows and fully color in the details on the eyes/teeth and this thing looks incredible. Best zombie head I've come across. If you have any inclination towards an artistic touch up and you will end up with something impressive. (Pictures show before and after.)
