Host Handbook: Tricks and Treats for Halloween
AOL Lifestyle Expert Sabrina Soto shares two of her favorite Halloween projects: mummy wrapped candle holders and chocolate sandwich spooky eyes.

What you'll need for the mummy wrapped candle holders: Directions:
  • Add a line of glue to your mason jar.
  • Begin to wrap gauze around the jar, using the glue to secure it.
  • Glue two googly eyes of different sizes on to the wrapped jar.
  • Insert a LED candle.
What you'll need for the chocolate sandwich spooky eyes: Directions:
  • Refrigerate the cookies before separating them.
  • Separate each cookie.
  • Add a circle of blue or eye frosting in the center of the cook with the white frosting still intact.
  • Use a paintbrush and red frosting to create the "bloodshot" look.
  • Use a candy for the pupil.
