Halloween props can transform the simplest idea into a unique party decor. For example, integrate the pumpkin into a scene to create a theatrical effect.
Here a simple polka dot pumpkin become creepy if you put it next to a mice feast scene. The only tool you need to make the polka dot pumpkin is a melon baller. The same pumpkin design can be used for a cute family-friendly option or a creepy version. For the family-friendly version, paint or affix one or two silhouette mice on the pumpkin and position the rest of the mouse and a mouse hole on a foam core to make a backdrop.
The creepy version
The creepier vignette involves a herd of Halloween mice eating your food. Stop at the farmers market to grab a pack of decorative corns on the cob and squashes.
