This watchful beekeeper always takes good care of his bee colony. He wears a sting-resistant suit (actually a pair of painter's coveralls, available at hardware stores), work gloves to protect his hands, and a long tulle veil to guard his face. Dozens of "bees" are glued to the open-mesh netting; others buzz around his wide-brimmed straw hat. The stenciled bucket becomes a winsome receptacle for Halloween treats.

Legend has it that witches gathered twice a year: April 30 -- the eve of May Day -- and the night of October 31, also called the Night of the Witches. On these unearthly evenings, the story continues, witches and warlocks rode through the air on broomsticks to secret meetings where they danced around great roaring fires and planned the evil that they would perform during the coming year. Continue the tradition of the Night of the Witches by creating a scary witch window silhouette. It's a simple project that you can adjust to fit any window in your house.
