Make a pumpkin ice bucket to serve those creepy beverages out of (or just a good can of red cream soda!)

Materials:

Pumpkin

Serrated knife or keyhole saw

Glass or plastic bowl

How-to:

Choose a large, wide pumpkin. Cut off the top third with a serrated knife or keyhole saw and scrape out the pulp and seeds.

Line the gourd with a glass or plastic bowl to prevent it from becoming water-logged. If the pumpkin opening is a bit too small for the bowl, carefully shave the inside edge with a spoon. Finish by filling the bowl with ice and bottled drinks.

Fill the bowl with ice, bottled drinks, and let your get’s get their own bloody drink!

Fill old-style specimen jars with glycerin and add some food coloring if you want to produce a supernatural tint, or just leave pure to see the creepy objects clearly! Arrange creepy old doll heads, glitter, or coneflower heads inside. Your guests will be intrigued by what lies within!

Dreadful Candles:CI-Rennai-Hoefer_Halloween-Spooky-Mantel-roses-bloody-candles

{DIY Network}

Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with “blood” (actually red candle wax).

Simply fill a cup 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.

Let the children’s urban legend come to life by cutting out frosted-glass window film, which adheres easily and (like ghosts everywhere) disappears without a trace. Cut out a spooky silhouette or simply a ghost shape with a pair of scissors, and apply to the bathroom mirror!
