Line up these mess-free, fire-safe simple Halloween decorations on a window sill or porch to cause a scary stir.
Did you know? Before the pumpkin became the mainstream jack-o'-lantern canvas, people used to carve spooky faces out of turnips, beets and potatoes. The jack-o’-lantern tradition stems from Irish folklore and is about an evil character named "Stingy Jack"!
