NBC News - As Halloween quickly approaches, you might decide on some last-minute food, decoration or costume ideas to wrap up your holiday Boo-nanza. 


Bat wall clock or window 


Materials:
 


Wall Mirror


Scotch tape


Black construction paper


Bat template


Hot-glue gun and glue sticks 


Steps:


Make the bats by tracing a template of your choice and cutting it out on the black construction paper. Then fold the bats and tape them on the mirror. 


Mummy mason jars 


Materials: 


Gauze or cheesecloth material


Hot-glue gun and glue sticks


Mason jar


Electronic tea lights


Scissors


Steps: 


Start with a clean mason jar. Take your gauze or cheese cloth and cut into 2-inch wide strips. Dab hot glue on the bottom of the mason jar and wrap the cloth around the jar. Continue wrapping until the top area is covered. Dab more hot glue on top to secure the cloth, then fix two eyes (or buttons) on the outside. Drop a tea light into the jar and then put the lid on.


Graveyard ghost snacks


Ingredients:


1 Banana


1 squeeze tube chocolate decoration frosting 


Oreo cookies  


Pudding 


Dessert cup


Plastic zip-seal bag


Steps: 


Add you favorite color of pudding (green, for example) until the dessert cup is ¾ full. Put Oreo cookies in the plastic zip-seal bag and crush them so the crumbs resemble dirt (try not to make a hole in the bag though). When the cookies are crushed, sprinkle them on top of the pudding. Cut the banana in half and peel the skin. Place a banana half in the cup, cutside down. Use the chocolate decoration frosting to draw a spooky face on the banana.

Over-size white T-shirt


9 foam balls, about 3 to 4 inches in diameter

Cut the foam balls in half. Paint 6 halves blue, 6 halves pink and 6 halves yellow. Use the hot glue gun to attach the foam balls to the T-shirt. Give the shirt ample time to dry before wearing.
