Create creepy shadows on your walls with cardstock cutouts and candles. Attach your creepy cutouts to a thin wire, and wrap the wire around the base of a candle holder. But make sure the wire is tall enough to escape the candle’s flame!

Move the candles closer to the wall for a darker shadow, or farther from the wall for a bigger silhouette.
