A Flying Bat Branch Centerpiece
- Find a handful of thin branches, 3-4 feet tall. Spray them black if you like, but it’s not necessary.
- Using black card stock or construction paper, trace a bat stencil shape and cut out as many bats as you will need – roughly about 20-30 bats, about 3 inches wide.
- Use a hot glue gun to glue the paper bats onto the branches.
- Add the bat-filled branches to a simple vase.

Goulish Ghost Balloons
- Fill as many white balloons as you like with helium. If you do not own a Balloon Time Personal Helium Tank, you will need to purchase them from a party store.
- Cut strands of white crepe paper into strips about 2 feet long and tape them onto the bottom of the balloon.
- Using a large, black permanent marker, draw faces directly onto the balloon. Tie a few together and let these creepy ghosts float around your trick-or-treaters or party guests.

You will need large, white pillar candles, a red candle in a glass jar, and an eyedropper (usually sold in pharmacies)
- Allow the red candle to burn for a while to create liquid wax.
- Starting around the wick of the white candle, use the eyedropper to dribble the hot, red wax down the top and sides of the white candle.
- You may need to draw a line down the white candle to get the red wax flowing in the right direction.
- Continue making drips all the way around the pillar candle. If the red wax gets too lumpy, melt it with a long, candle lighter.
Be sure to keep a plate or candle holder beneath your bloody candles.
