Ghouls’ Night Out

To call forth this gathering, use glue dots to stick construction-paper eyes and mouths onto white tissue-paper bells, then drape them with cheesecloth.

Effortlessly Eerie Living Room

These decorating tricks are so easy, it’s frightening. Take a page out of Miss Havisham’s book and use sheet-draped chairs to give your room the look of ruin. Then, string a cheesecloth “cobweb” across a mirror and secure curly willow branches in candlesticks with museum wax (Quakehold, $4.99 for two ounces; amazon.com).

Black Candles

Use ebony tapers

Black Paper Flowers

Take typical harbingers of good cheer to the dark side. This shadowy floral arrangement is made from inexpensive crepe-paper streamers.

Phantom Presence

Keep up ghostly appearances with this witty reflection. Draw a figure on the back of a sheet of frosted window film(Remlor, $14.95 for a 24″W roll; amazon.com). Cut out the silhouette, as well as its eyes and mouth, with an X-Acto knife. Apply the film to a mirror, smoothing as you go.
