Mystic Halloween Decorations 

Bath Melts

Mystify your friends with some awesome misting Halloween decorations this year! These decorations are a lot of fun to make, and even more fun to watch—and can be used to diffuse your favorite autumn essential oil blend into the air.

MISTY HAUNTED HOUSE
 
Materials Needed:
  1. Small Haunted House Decoration: Small haunted house decorations can be found at many craft stores, boutiques, home decor stores, and many other stores this time of year. Choose a decoration that best matches your style. Ceramic, plastic, or foam decorations work best as they aren't affected by the moisture involved with this decoration, but wood or metal decorations can also be used for a short time.
  2. Mist-Making Unit and Power Adapter: This kit—available from Abundant Health—creates the mist, as well as some fun lighting effects for your decoration.
  3. Rectangular Plastic Container: This container should be wider than your haunted house decoration, and about twice as long.
  4. Small Plastic Dish or Container: This container should be at least 2.25" deep, and small enough to fit inside the Rectangular Plastic Container. This will hold the water and the mist-making unit to create the mist.
  5. Translucent Plastic Cup or Container: This should be a container that you don't mind making a few holes in. It will be used as a splash-guard over the mist-making unit. 
  6. Small Piece of Plywood or Stiff Plastic: This is used to create a platform for the haunted house and other decorations to sit on. It should be large enough to hold these decorations, but small enough that it can still fit inside the Rectangular Plastic Container. 
  7. Black Plastic Sheeting or Fabric: This is used to cover the rectangular plastic containers. If you do use black fabric, make sure the fabric is made from a non-absorbent material (won't soak up water).
  8. Small Wood or Plastic Blocks or Containers: These are used to hold up the plywood or stiff plastic to create a platform for the decorations to sit on, so you will need at least four (1 for each corner). You may also need a block to set the small container with the water on.
  9. Other Decorative Items: Use your imagination to embellish your decoration with small rocks, trees, tombstones, fences, or whatever else you desire!
  10. Essential oils (5-20 drops): If desired, add a few drops of your favorite autumn essential oil or blend to create a truly scent-sational decoration!
Instructions:
 
If needed, cut the plywood or thin plastic sheet so that it will fit inside the large rectangular container with enough room to put the small plastic container next to it. Arrange the plywood inside the rectangular container on top of wood or plastic blocks or containers so that it creates a platform about 1"-1.5" below the top of the large rectangular container. Arrange the small plastic container so it is resting next to the plywood platform, with the top of the small plastic container just above the top of the platform (you may need to place the small plastic container on a wood block or container to hold it up in place).
Use a piece of black plastic sheeting (such as a black garbage bag), or black non-absorbent fabric to cover the containers and platform. Push the black material down into the small plastic container to create a reservoir area for the water.
Place the mist-maker down inside the reservoir area, ensuring it is resting flat on the bottom of the small plastic container. Place the haunted house decoration on the platform next to the reservoir area.
Fill the reservoir area with water so it is covering the mist-making unit, but is still about .25" below the top of the small plastic container. Take the small translucent plastic cup or container and cut openings in the sides to allow the mist to escape from beneath it. Place it over the mist-making unit in the reservoir area. Make certain that the openings for the mist extend from the surface of the water to about .5"-1" above the top of the small plastic container that is holding the water. This container with the holes will serve as a splash-guard to keep water from splashing out of the reservoir area.
Add other objects to embellish the scene as desired. For the picture above, I used river-rocks glued together (with a hot-glue gun) to create steps that rested on other plastic containers hidden beneath the black material to make the scene look more like a hill. You could also use a dead tree branch to make a spooky tree, foam or wood shapes to create tombstones, dead twigs glued together to make a fence, or whatever else you can imagine!
To create the mist, plug the mist-making unit into the controller, and plug the power-adapter into the controller and into the wall. Switch the controller on, and choose your desired lighting effect and speed. The mist will fill the reservoir area, then spill over onto the platform where the haunted house and other decorations are sitting. If desired, add a few drops of essential oil into the water to be diffused into the air.

REEPY WITCHES CAULDRON
 
Materials Needed:
  1. Small Decorative Squash, Pumpkin, or Gourd: These can be found at many grocery or craft stores this time of year. This will make the head of the witch. 
  2. Mist-Making Unit and Power Adapter: This kit—available from Abundant Health—creates the mist, as well as some fun lighting effects for your decoration.
  3. Large Black Plastic Trash Bag: This will be used for the body/clothes of the witch.
  4. Two Wood Dowels: These can be found at many craft or hardware stores. For this project, they should be about 18" long, and about .5" in diameter.
  5. Rectangular or Square Wood Board: This will serve as the base of the witch. It should measure roughly at least 5" x 6" to be able to support the witch.
  6. Small Black Plastic or Metal Cauldron: These can be found at many different stores during the fall for Halloween decorations. If you use a plastic cauldron, it may have a small hole in the bottom. If it does, cover the bottom of the hole with tape, then plug the hole from the top with clay or glue from a hot-glue gun..
  7. Essential oils (5-20 drops): If desired, add a few drops of your favorite autumn essential oil or blend to create a truly scent-sational decoration!
Instructions:
 
Carefully sharpen one end of one of the wood dowels with a knife. Push the sharpened end of the dowel carefully into the bottom of the decorative squash or gourd. 
Place the dowel/squash assembly inside the black plastic trash bag so that the bottom of the dowel is touching the inside bottom of the black bag. Gather the bag around the dowel and use a twist-tie or zip-tie to secure the black plastic bag around the dowel, just below the squash.
Bring the top of the black plastic bag back down so it covers the dowel again.
Drill a hole in the wood board large enough for the dowel to fit into. Push the dowel into the hole and secure it in the hole with glue.
Decorate the witch by making a hat out of black felt or other thick fabric, painting eyes and a mouth, adding string or yarn for hair, or adding whatever else you desire.
Place the mist-making unit in the middle of the cauldron. Fill the cauldron with water so it is covering the mist-making unit, but is still a couple of inches below the top of the cauldron. Place the cauldron next to the witch.
Use the second dowel for the witches stirring stick and arrange as desired with the witch's body.
To create the mist in the cauldron, plug the mist-making unit into the controller, and plug the power-adapter into the controller and into the wall. Switch the controller on, and choose your desired lighting effect and speed. The mist will fill the cauldron and create a lighted, bubbling potion effect. If desired, add a few drops of essential oil into the water to be diffused into the air.

Extra Ideas
