Cute Pumpkins 
Supplies: A roll of toilet paper, tissue paper, black construction paper and tape.

Start by retrieving a roll of toilet paper and wrap orange tissue paper around it, taping it in the back and tucking the excess into the holes at the top. Then, push some green tissue paper into the hole at the top of the toilet paper roll to add a stem to your pumpkin. Finally, draw eyes a nose and a mouth onto your construction paper and cut it out and tape it to your pumpkin. Now, you have a savvy decoration to go in your bathroom or wherever you would please.

Mummy Lanterns
Supplies: Mason jars, medical gauze, tape, glue, tea light candles and googly eyes.

Simply wrap the gauze around the jar and tape it. Then, glue on the googly eyes, and your jar has been mummified.

Lighted Skulls
Supplies: Empty milk bottles or any other form of plastic bottles, electrical tape, battery-operated tea lights, ribbon and wax paper.

Using the electric tape, cut out teeth, eyes and a nose. Placing the electrical tape on the wax paper makes it easier to cut and less likely to stick to your scissors. Black construction paper can be substituted for electric tape. Once you have cut out the pieces of the face, stick them onto the milk bottles. Using electric tape makes it easier to reposition if a mistake is made. Next, remove the cap and place it over the tea light; then tape the two together. Finally, put the ribbon over the tape holding the bottle and the light together and wahlah! You have brightened your skull!

Monster Mash Lanterns
Supplies: Mason jar, some tissue paper, tea lights and construction paper.

Apply the tissue paper to the mason jar using mod podge, crafters all in one glue, sealer and finish, or any method you would prefer to make the paper stick to the jar. Draw your own spooky faces on black construction paper and cut them out. You can find a template for some monster faces at according-to-kelly.com by clicking on the link provided. Then, glue your cut outs on to the newly tissue-papered jars. Apply your favorite Halloween themed ribbon to the lid and plop in a tea light and your spooky lantern is finished.
