Can you feel it? That spooky feeling in the air that rolls in right about the same time the leaves start changing color? It might feel like Labor Day weekend barbeques were just last weekend but, believe it or not, it is nearly Halloween. Before you know it, skeletons and witches will be hanging in every store window and jack-o-lanterns will line the neighborhood streets as children of all ages get ready for a night of candy-collecting and mischief.
This year, SpouseLink wants to help you transform your home into the creepiest crib on the block. These ghoulish DIY decorations will have trick-or-treaters spreading ghost stories about your haunted house.
