This is a great last minute idea to decorate your house for Halloween. Everybody loves a clementine. Get a bunch of clementines, add a black sharpie and a little imagination and they become mini jack-o-lanterns.

Broken Glass Cupcakes

Here’s a popular dessert idea that I have used at my party quite a few times over the years. Make some red velvet cupcakes with white cream cheese frosting. Now make a batch of clear sugar glass. If you don’t know how to do that it’s really quite easy. Find a recipe here. After that’s all done break the glass into pieces. I usually do this by dropping the sheet of glass while it’s still in the baking pan onto the floor. It will break into a bunch of glass like shards. Take the broken pieces and randomly stick them into the cupcakes then sprinkle edible blood (see recipe below) over the glass and cupcakes. They turn out yummy and look awesome.

1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp red food coloring
Few drops blue food coloring

If the mixture is too thin stir in a teaspoon of corn starch, whisking rapidly to thin out any lumps or you can leave it to settle for a while and skim the lumps off the top. Obviously you can up the recipe if you are making lots of cupcakes, but this will get you started.

Crawling Body in Cemetery

I can’t believe that I never thought of this idea before! I’m always looking for something new to add to our Halloween decor. Of course we do the obligatory cemetery in out front yard, but I never thought of adding a crawling body trying to escape the horrors of our cemetery. Just brilliant and I am so stealing this!

Human Ghost Display

When I first saw these I just fell in love. These guys are so creepy and in the right place during our Halloween party they will scare the living daylights out of my guests. Unfortunately, then I noticed their size. They are only 5′ tall. That won’t scare anyone unless they’re little kids. 5′ is usually not all that scary. I don’t mean any offense to anyone who is that size, it’s just that I can’t imagine a grown man being too frightened by it. I stand at 5’10” and I’m sorry, but that is not going to do anything to me. I guess I could put it on a box, so it appears bigger. Of course then the other thing that pissed me off was the way they advertise them. I thought that you got 3 of them for $129 since the item is called Human Ghost Display and show 3 in the picture, but I should have known better. I’m not sure it’s worth that if they don’t even make a sound, but I think I may be able to make them myself. Off to the drawing board! If you’re not the crafty type then you can buy your single ghost here.
