Create a spooky staircase with cutouts of mice, spiders, crows or pairs of creepy eyes. Print out templates on black paper and stick on to the staircase using double-sided tape.

Use old wine bottles to make a spooky, custom table decoration. Just spray paint the bottles in your desired colors and once they’re dry, place a candlestick in each bottle. We think black candles look particularly Halloween-y. Light the candles and let the wax drip down the sides of the bottle. The messier, the better!
