  • I have seen a few people posting that they are “Booing” their neighbors (leaving little Halloween treats on their doorsteps), this would be such a cute thing to “boo” with! Or to dress up the Halloween candy you give out.

  • As a kid, we did this project every year, but we used tissues instead of cotton. This is much more professional!
