Create mystical sets of ‘floating’ candles simply by painting paper towel rolls white, then hang them from the ceiling with fishing line, next place some simple LED lights on the tops and voila! The centerpiece made up of ‘mold’ hued fruit will seal the deal and bring a horrific air to a once happy and joyful room!

I feel like I’m being watched…
A great addition to any room of the house, or any side of the yard! Grab up some paper towel or toilet paper rolls, then cut menacing looking eye shapes out of them.

The trick or treaters won’t be able to sit still long since they’ll shortly realize… they’re surrounded!
