We hope you like the 10 ideas we have gathered here for you to add just the right amount of spookiness to your home!! 

1. hanging ghosts that you can light up!

What is it about hanging ghosts, especially when they light up?  Children are fascinated by them.  These only require a clear plastic ornament that you can get at any craft store,  gauze, black felt for the eyes, and glow sticks.  They are very easy to put together!
