Canvas on Demand

One of our favorite holidays is coming up—yep, Halloween—so it’s time for all of us to get our scare on. If you’re looking for a spook-tacular Halloween costume or ghoulishly good house accessories, the ideas below are for you.

1. The Eyes Have It Removable Wallpaper, $37.99 (for 24×48)

You know that feeling you sometimes have that someone’s watching you? Well, imagine you’re watching a horror movie on the couch, the lights are off, the hairs on the back of your neck stand up…and when you turn around, there they are, on the walls, all around you. These particular eyes are temporary, so you can put them up for the season—say, October?—and then take them down when you can’t handle the creep factor any longer.
