Halloween Lights to go with your Costumes

Just What Halloween Lights Should You Get?

Many of us choose to have Halloween lights for the celebration at this time of the year. They work well to show off your funny Halloween costume ideas. You can of course choose to buy your lights, however you can also just as easily make your own. These homemade lights are called luminaries. They can give a spooky and eerie shadow that just can not compare to string lights. Making these lights can become an annual family activity, and also help the entire neighborhood look more festive.

Lights can be made from many different types of material, but a lot of people choose tin cans as their base. For this project you will need tin cans, a hammer, nails, cookie cutters, paper, pencils or markers, tape, sand, and tea light candles. Once you have gathered all of your supplies, the fun of making your own Halloween lights can begin.

Make sure that all of the cans are clean. Wash and dry them thoroughly. You will begin by tracing the inside of the cookie cutters with the pencil. Place it on the paper to make a template. When you have all the pictures you want to use, you can proceed to the next step. Choose one of the templates and wrap it around a can, using tape to secure it in place. You need to be sure that the shape you traced is on the outside facing you. Punch holes around the shape on the paper by using the hammer and a nail.

You can choose to make a single design for all of the cans, such as a jack-o-lantern face, or use many different Halloween designs. It is totally up to you and your creativity. Whether you choose a uniform look or a mix and match appearance, the over all effect is amazing.

The next step in making these special Halloween lights is putting the sand in the bottom of each can. The reason for doing this is to ensure that the can does not tip over. Be careful not to cover the holes for your design. Set a tea light candle in the middle of each can on top of the sand. Now, you are ready to line your driveway, sidewalk, or the edge of your lawn with the cans.

At Halloween time, as soon as it starts to get dark, light all of your candles. This causes a rather spooky effect, and nearly everyone loves it. In fact, some of your neighbors may want to get together with you in making some lights for their own homes. This looks especially nice if your immediate neighbors also choose to make their own Halloween lights to set up. Anyone entering your street will be enchanted by the glow coming from all of these super Halloween lights. Your neighborhood could well become the talk of the town especially with everyone dressed in funny Halloween costumes too.

What Halloween Gifts Can You Give?

Everyone gives and receives gifts on the major holidays like Christmas and their birthdays, but you can also give Halloween gifts. Why not give out a few gifts to those ghosts and goblins that you call friends and family? It’s something that everyone will enjoy.

There are actually traditional gifts to give at Halloween. It all started way back in history with the ancient Celts who left gifts of nuts and fruits on their doorsteps. These were meant to appease the spirits of the restless family members who were thought to wander the earth on this very special day. These can make such nice Halloween gifts using baskets of nuts and fruits to fit this old tradition. You can even say that you are appeasing the appetites of your friends and family.

Although, there will be a time when nuts and fruits just won’t work. That’s when you go for the more modern varieties of gifts for Halloween. Candy is the most popular aspect of Halloween. Chocolate, suckers, caramel popcorn balls, and anything else that gives the required sugar rush. You can find such things as personalized candy gift sets at many websites, and they always go over well.

The next choice for Halloween gifts is a bit spookier and more suited to the hardcore fan of the darker side of Halloween. These are things like finding a couple good old fashion scary movies that make your skin crawl, and your heart rate jump up in the red. Add to these movies other things that make the night pass eerily, like novelty candy specifically for Halloween. Anything that has to do with skulls and severed body parts will usually work out fairly well. This way, your friends or family members can sit back on a cold dark night and watch their movies while enjoying some gummy eyeballs.

Halloween gifts for those who celebrate this day religiously, you might throw in a set of decorations. These could be something to add to the collection of spiders and tombstones they place around their house every year. These gifts are easy to find online and at most stores that sell Halloween items. The newest craze is the blow up sets that sit in your front yard. These include giant witches, vampires, ghosts, and monsters of all shapes and sizes. Although these gift ideas might be a bit more pricy in the long run, they will make the holiday a bit more fun for those who really dive right into the festivities.

What ever your choice for Halloween gifts this year, try to find the one that fits the person you are shopping for. Small children might not enjoy watching horror movies, and the adults probably wouldn’t care too much for little candy treats.  Or maybe they will. Buy Halloween gifts you know the person will enjoy, whatever that may be.
