Etched Victorian Pumpkins
This sideboard tableau intersperses luminous pumpkins with a decanter of wine, a stand with fruit, and other objects evocative of Edgar Allan Poe and his tales of horror. To render the glowing silhouettes, we used two techniques: The bright candelabrum and goblet are cut through the pumpkins' walls, while the textured quill and skull are pared gently from the outer shells. Pumpkins of different hues, including white Lumina, a green-gray Jarrahdale, and burnt-orange cheese pumpkins, add tonal variety.
Mirror with Glowing Eyes
Glow-in-the-dark glitter gives this Halloween decoration its one-of-a-kind look.
Skull Treat Boxes
Mischievous smiles make these skulls more sweet than scary.
Mischievous spirits, lacking bodies of their own, have been known to set up house inside scooped-out pumpkins and gourds. You can offer help by arranging these Halloween standbys into animal shapes -- all the better for playful souls to occupy.
Hair-raising party decorations don't need to be costly or fussy. You can make these frightening flourishes with our template, some inexpensive craft supplies, and just a few minutes of your time.

Creepy Crawly Invitations
Black Cat Silhouette
Use double-sided tape to place these cats where guests might least expect to find them -- whether they're perched inside framed prints or hiding in the window.
Not one but five apple gourds, which have an unpleasantly mottled hue, lie in wait on this sill. Their shifty glances and tormented frowns were carved to look similar -- yet not quite the same. A bed of dead branches ensures this vengeful band will get no sleep.
Shadows are emblematic of Halloween: They're dark and fleeting, and always lurking a step behind you. But decorating with them is impossible -- at least without black magic. Use some black paper and a little craftiness to make silhouettes, and you'll get the next best thing.
Bone Frame with Sea-Life Clip Art
Create an arm-bone frame to display our sea life designs or another suitably spooky work of art.
This ravenous pumpkin is cursed: He must offer up sweets to children all evening, yet he is not allowed to eat them (neither the sweets nor the children). A treat-filled bowl was placed in his cavernous mouth, and miniature flashlights were tucked on either side, against his jowls.

These woodland favors are pinecone boxes disguised as birds of prey. The textured ridges resemble feathers, and crepe-paper embellishments finish the owl's menacing look.

The stippled skins of these "One Too Many" pumpkins are adorned with marbleized Florentine-paper leaves and millinery-wire tendrils. Mini "White Ball" gourds nestle at their feet, while "Baby Boo" pumpkins find a spot at the table as place markers.
Because none of the pumpkins in this subtly colored centerpiece are carved, they can last well into the fall, perhaps even until Thanksgiving.
