Halloween is right behind the corner. How do you plan to spend this most frightening moment of the year? Gonna buy ready-to-use pumpkin lanterns as you did before and can’t decide which one suits you more?

If you reply with a No, and you happen to have one or more children in your house, well, then let's play some new tricks. Ready to learn and make new home-decorations with them this year.

Get your paper and pen, let’s start:

Pumpkin Lantern

You need to prepare (Images by kknews): pumpkins, a saw/ small knife, a large spoon, a marking pen, and a non-fire lamp(zanflare Curtain Lights)

1. Pick a nice-looking pumpkin with a good stem; then draw a circle or square or even a star-shape around the stem , cut out the lid along the shape line with a slight angle that slopes inward.

2. Gouge out the pumpkin’s flesh with a large spoon. Scrape the inside and then clean it to keep light shine through. (The cleaner the better ) Similarly, the pulp under the lid should be cleaned.

3. Draw the willing pattern you want on the pumpkin and slowly carve a bit wider along the line with a pumpkin saw or a small knife.

4. Put a non-fire lamp into the pumpkin, then you and your children get one self-made Jack-o' lantern!

One lantern is not enough for such a big house, you can follow these steps to make more. Plus, zanflare Curtain Lights which have three colors to choose offer the pumpkin a brighter, more divergent and more spectacular lighting effect. This is definitely worth the money! Both for your kids that will love the atmosphere and for yourself saving on Christmas lights!

As the most important thing - the pumpkin lantern is done, we need some other scary stuff. What if I say ghosts? Uhhh!

Now your ghosts are staring at you. String them on the zanflare Birch Tree Light, then move your tree light to the corner or in front of a wall. 24 warm white led lights are going to shine all round the ghosts.

In the deep, silent midnight darkness, when you walk into the house, a gust of cold wind comes with you. Suddenly you see something looming on the wall wobbling...

Let’s be honest about Halloween, you must be tired of dealing with those little monkeys. They knocked hard at your door and shouted loudly, though their excited faces light you up, you still want to scare them slightly. Don’t you? In this case, you have to hang some spiders on the door frame. Once you open the door, they will be scared stiff by the spiders!

Sweet Spiders

It’s simple, look: lollipops, thick knitted yarn, small balls of yarn, active eyeballs, a pair of scissors and glue are what you need. (Images from weima’s blog)

1. Cut the thick knitted yarn into pieces of the same length. Then use two pieces to wrap the stick from above and below. Four pieces make one spider.

2. Fasten the ball of yarn on the center of those foot(on the stick). Glue the eyes on the ball.

3. Repeat the steps and make countless spiders.

zanflare Edison Bulb String Light

You can gather them on the plate or a bowl or just place dispersedly on the table and couch. Nevertheless, the original idea can not be forget. Therefore, in order to achieve a perfect effect, the zanflare Edison Bulb String Light is necessary. Hang the sweet “black widows” on the lights string, and then hang the string on the frame of the door. Turn on the light, the modern look and warm white light will confuse those screaming kiddos! They will shriek out loud so that everyone will notice the spiders. Then a daring imp will catch one and be surprised. “They are lollipops!!!” The children will find out that those creepy things that scared them are what they really want.

Up to now, you have pumpkin lanterns, a few ghosts, and a string of spiders, but the rascals on your home want something more.
