First impressions -- and thus an eerie entry -- is so important. With a sinister leer painted on his papier mache head, the Grim Reaper greets guests dressed in a long, black-hooded robe. "This must be the house we're looking for!" the kids cry out at the sight of the ominous skull banner. Look even closer. There are knee-sock hangmen dangling from the fence! And strung together paper-plate pumpkins fluttering in the wind from the porch roof.
Encourage the little ones to step inside, where it seems as if witches and ghosts skulk about every room. The table is draped in a quilted runner in Halloween-print fabrics, embellished with buttons and ribbons. Above, hangs a masked funeral wreath, enhanced with -- what else -- black silk flowers and spider webs. The burial chamber chairs are a safe place to sit and rest -- or are they? The slipcovers tell the tale of the previous occupants, such as "Here lies Spot. He got rubbed out."
"Had enough, trick-or-treaters?" you'll ask. "Of course not!" will be the answer. Check this out: the mummy man is hanging with a witch who wears candy-corn knickers. And eeooww...there's a gang of hand-towel ghosts giving out wicked stares from their pom-pom eyes, red-fabric mouths opened wide howling. The only question that remains is, will you have more fun making these projects or will your guests when they see them?
