The perfect entryway to your Halloween party is a spider web covered archway! Create this by anchoring two branches on either side of your walkway and bend until the branch reaches the other side of the archway. Next, cover the branches with as many cobwebs as you’d like. You can also customize your archway with details like fake spiders and skeletons!

A subtle touch to add to your Halloween decorations, a mummy mason jar is easy to make and can also illuminate your Halloween party! In order to make this DIY project, all you’ll need is a mason jar, white gauze bandages, scissors, craft glue, googly eyes, a candle (battery powered tea light) and black craft paper.  

Starting with your mason jar, apply craft glue to the base of the jar and begin to wrap gauze bandages around the jar until the sides are completely covered, glue to secure the ends of the bandages. Use your glue again to place googly eyes to the upper part of your jar. Using your black craft paper, cut out an oval shape and glue it below the eyes. Finally, place your candle or battery operated tea light into the jar and light!
