Most of us achieve the ghostly effect by turning off lights and using candles during Halloween. Be creative by recycling your old bottles and mason jars. Paint your jars using orange, green, or white poster paint (depends on the characters that you want to create) and draw faces using a black permanent marker.
Another easy trick? Liven up old jars using neatly folded art paper. Just make sure you draw the faces first before you put them inside the jars.

Aside from hanging these pieces outside, you can also use them as wall accents in the living area. For this project, you can use black craft foam, an illustration board or a black cartolina. Print a bat template and trace it onto your chosen material. Once you're done tracing a couple of bats, you may start cutting these. Feel free to decorate your walls with at least 10 bats!

Hosting a Halloween party at home? Use these candles as part of your centerpiece! To achieve this, prepare white and red candles plus old newspapers. Protect your floors using the newspapers and arrange the white candles on top. Light the red candle and allow it to drip onto the white ones. Depending on the final look that you want to achieve, you can cover the entire candle with drips.
