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 


Wall Mirror

Scotch tape

Black construction paper

Bat template

Hot-glue gun and glue sticks 


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 


Gauze or cheesecloth material

Hot-glue gun and glue sticks

Mason jar

Electronic tea lights



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


1 Banana

1 squeeze tube chocolate decoration frosting 

Oreo cookies  


Dessert cup

Plastic zip-seal bag


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.

Sugar dot candy costume


Over-size white T-shirt

9 foam balls, about 3 to 4 inches in diameter

Blue, pink and yellow craft paint 

Hot-glue gun and glue sticks 

Paint brush 

Knife to cut foam balls


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.
