the right glue, and your creativity.
The experts at Perfect Glue offer these unique,

*Make personalized invitations
Invitations set the mood for a party. Whether you
want to spook and scare or enthrall and delight, you can easily
create a stylized invitation to fit the theme. Consider mixing
fabric with paper to create a unique effect.
*Prepare activities and treats
Entertain your guests with themed activities and
treats. Make charming Halloween hats made of fabric, paper and
creepy, crazy embellishments. Felt-covered baskets filled with
candies and party favors are sure to please all ghosts or goblins
of any age.
*Create designer-quality home
Evoke screams of delight with a charming table
runner, a centerpiece of sparkling star wands or retro orange
and black paper candleholders. To create these unique candleholders,
* Cylindrical candleholders
in various heights
* Perfect Glue 1
* Decorative and plain
scissors or decorative paper punches
* Black and orange
* Scrap paper long
enough to wrap around candle holder
Using scissors or paper punches, create fun shapes
from various black and orange paper. Apply a small amount of Perfect
Glue 1 to the back of shapes and apply to candleholders. To hold
shapes in place while drying, wrap a piece of paper tightly around
the candleholder and tape in place. Let sit for an hour.
For the vellum wrapped candle holder, draw designs
onto the vellum and cut away interior of designs using scissors.
Wrap vellum sheet around candleholder and apply Perfect Glue 1
to ends of paper and secure.
Tip: To help set the
candle in place (and to add a festive touch), add Halloween candy
to the holders.
