Halloween decor wouldn't be complete without some spirit -- spooky spirit, that is. Find our best ghost crafts and decorations, including shocking cheesecloth ghosts and sweet cupcakes, to enhance your celebration.
Even if you tend to be scared of your own shadow, you'll still smile at your reflection thanks to this friendly ghost on your mirror. The cutout is made of frosted-glass window film, which adheres easily and (like ghosts everywhere) disappears without a trace. Print the template, trace onto the film, cut out with a pair of scissors, and apply.
Top homemade or store-bought cupcakes with a creepy candy creature. You will need a miniature marshmallow, 2 regular marshmallows, and 2 chocolate sprinkles. Twist top of miniature marshmallow into a point by rolling it between your thumb and index finger. Trim all 3 marshmallows, and stick together. Twist top 2 slightly to shape. With a toothpick, poke holes, and insert sprinkle eyes.
These apparitions may seem friendly at first, but in the darkness their scary side comes out. To summon a ghost, snap one or two green eight-hour light sticks so they glow, and insert them into a white balloon. Inflate the balloon and tie it closed. Use a black marker to draw a wide-eyed visage. Repeat to make more, then affix ghosts to a wall with transparent tape and lower the lights.
These spirits on a Boo-Nilla Shake may look frightening, but they're actually quite sweet. Make the faces with melted chocolate painted inside the glass.
For 12 faces, place 1/3 cup (2 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on high until melted, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes; stir. Using a small brush, paint chocolate inside glasses (if it hardens too soon, microwave 20 seconds more). Let set a few minutes before adding shake. Prepare glasses up to a day ahead, but don't fill until ready to serve.
