Raise your hand if you've decorated for Halloween yet!? Not me. Mainly because despite my children's pleas to put all the "spookies" out, they are also secretly totally scared of it. And I don't need any middle of the night Halloween wake-up calls. But these chic bats (never thought I'd say those words) are making me rethink my Halloween scrooginess. Apparently sold on @Amazon!?

2. MATTE BLACK + METALLIC GOLD TABLE SETTING

Having a dinner party for Halloween? Pick up clear plastic wine glasses, plates and white flameless candles from your local dollar store. Fill a plastic bowl with matte black paint. Dip the wine glass stems and the candles directly into the paint, gently shake off the excess and let dry. 

You can also paint the plates black and purchase gold plasticware. For the finishing touch, use the black plus a metallic gold paint to decorate miniature pumpkins. You can stick with the solid theme or have fun and add patterns.

3. BUTTERNUT SQUASH GHOSTS

5. WIZARD OF OZ DOORMAT
