On Pinterest last year, I saw a pumpkin with holes carved in it and rubber rats placed in the holes.
I loved the creepiness of it, so wanted to do my own version of it. Cheap is good - off to Dollar Tree and Wal-Mart I went! I found a package of 3 mice, a carve-able pumpkin and some creepy cloth.
I used an apple corer to punch holes in the pumpkin, draped the creepy cloth over the table, set the pumpkin on a stand and arranged the mice in the holes.
Next, I took my Bones, Sticks, and Stones and ghost candle holders from PartyLite and placed them around the pumpkin. Cute!

I had a clock that never really kept time - it was always slow - so I placed it on the table (after setting the time for Midnight) and draped it with some fake spiderweb.

I think it's a cute, scary Halloween-scape. The candles give it just the right touch of eerie glow.
What have you decorated for Halloween?
