  • Mummy tape or werewolf paw (Pictured: Zagone Studio men's wolf gloves, from $23,

  1. Chalk the details of a door on black kraft paper and tape it to your real door's interior frame.
  2. Cut a hole in the middle that’s just big enough to fit your arm (covered in mummy tape or a werewolf paw), and place candy below. It’ll look like a mere prop -- until it playfully slaps or grabs the fingers of anyone sneaking an extra treat.
