Haunted Mirror - Conjure up the illusion of haunted spirits with this easy project. Sand a corner of an old mirror down until it is clear, feathering it at the edge. Copy a photo of a frightened face onto translucent paper and again on white paper. Tape the translucent print to the back of the mirror, then tape the white one behind it, slightly off-center, for a ghostly image.

Haunted Reflection Mirror Decoration - Make no bones about it; this project is easy. Paint an ornate framed mirror black. Attach a skeleton head to the top and arms to sides of the frame. For an extra chill factor, position a ghost or skeleton figurine so it reflects in the mirror. Passersby will do a double take.
Shock guests with a gallery of macabre images. Search your basement, local dollar store, and thrift store for old white plates and bowls. Then look on the Internet for free clip art of skulls, skeletons, and other anatomical prints. (Think images from old medical textbooks.) Print your finds in black-and-white, then decoupage them onto plates and bowls. Use removable adhesive picture-hanging strips for this seasonal display.
Haunted Library--Even the innocent books can become bewitching props for a Halloween vignette. Cut lengths of paper to wrap around the books, and fold the edges over the insides of the front and back covers. Decorate the spines with Halloween stickers. And of course, every book needs a title -- spell out creepy book names along the spines using a stencil or letter stickers
