Book Page Bats from Dukes and Duchesses

A cutting machine makes these book page bats simple, but if you don’t have one, they’re easy to replicate with a pair of scissors! Use a thrifted book, such as this dictionary that Randi found and you’ll have a simple craft project that makes a big impact in just a few minutes.

DIY Jack-o-Lantern Candy Jar and EEK Letters from the Celebration Shoppe

A little black vinyl turns a dollar tree candy jar into a cute jack-o-lantern and some black paint turns three little letters into a spooky EEK! Place these in your entry way like Kim from the Celebration Shoppe and you’ll be able to welcome guests to your home in an adorable way.

Spooky Halloween Lanterns from Michelle’s Party Plan-It

Some regular lanterns transform into super spooky Halloween lanterns with a little mod podge and some spiderwebs. A little bit of metallic paint can give the lanterns an aged look too. Set a battery operated candle inside for a flickering glow, just like Michelle’s.
