String together paper cut-outs of bats, ghosts, pumpkins, and more to create a festive garland that can be displayed on walls, staircases or doors.

Haunted mirror

Decorate a mirror with frightening catchphrases, fake spiderwebs, and other eerie embellishments depending on how scary you want to go.

Treat bags

Decorate small bags or boxes (which are preferably made from cardboard or wood) using markers, stickers and stamps then hide away your tasty your treats
