Halloween Books

When used as props on a mantel or bookshelf, these cleverly wrapped books are fun additions to Halloween decor. Cut lengths of paper to wrap around the books, and fold the edges over the insides of the front and back covers. Decorate the spines with Halloween stickers. Don't forget the titles. Spell creepy book names along the spines using a stencil or print from a computer.
