Candles give these luminarias a witchy (or moonlit) glow.
See instructions: Make Spooky Lanterns
Dangle paper lanterns around your porch. Cut letters and spiders from black tissue paper and glue them to paper lanterns.
Hang the lanterns with black yarn, and illuminate with battery-operated tea lights.

Recycle cans with a drill and candles for magical lighting.
YOU'LL NEED: • Tin cans • Drill with 1/8" bit • Black, white and orange spray paint • Wooden stakes (from a hardware store) • Screws • Candles
INSTRUCTIONS: Wash cans and remove labels; fill cans with water and freeze. Drill holes through side of cans and one in center of bottom. Remove ice. Spray-paint cans. Drill a hole in top of stakes. Hammer stakes into ground. Place cans on top of stakes, aligning holes, and screw cans to stakes. Drop in candles.
Use these cackling cuties on a mantle, as dinner table place markers or to light the pathway to the party house.
YOU'LL NEED • Medium or large peat pots (we used 3" × 3" and 4" × 4" rounds) • Crafts knife • Votive candles in glass cups
1. Carve a jack-o'-lantern face into side of each peat pot with a craft knife. Try different faces on each pot.
2. Line pots up in a row. Place a glass cup with a votive inside each pot and light candle when ready to use.
Extra tip: Keep burning candles within sight at all times and make sure to extinguish them when leaving a room or going to bed. Visit www.candles.org for more tips.
