To conjure up ghosts and bats on the table, you can use harmless sandwich paper bags. Stick all over them cut-out paper bats or icky spiders. Place inside a tea light to complete the horror effect. The templates for the lanterns are made of black or orange cardboard – cut out and glued to the sandwich bags. In a similar way you can easily create a “substitute pumpkin”. Inflate an orange balloon and give him eyes, nose and mouth made of black paper.

Kids Halloween parties offer the perfect stage for all kind of games with killers and CSI detectives. The “bodies” on a crime scene are usually highlighted. You can use for this a classic painter’s tape. For the necessary blood dropping from the table just cut a red fabric tape shaped like blood drops and stick them on your clothes or on the wall. Cover the table with a black table cloth. Then cut a “blood-like” red cloth (red velvet is a very good option) and tape it with double-sided tape to the edge of the table.
