Lightly sketch jack-o-lantern faces on three of the orange circles. Cut out with craft knife.
Use Aleene’s® Acid-Free Tacky Glue™ to glue the jack-o-lantern faces onto the yellow circles. Turn over (yellow side up) and place jack-o-lanterns vertically about 1” apart. Lay black string over the backs of jack-o-lanterns in the center, with about 2½” extra string at the top.
Apply glue to one side of remaining orange circles and glue on top of yellow circle, sandwiching string in between. (The pumpkins will dangle from top of page.)
Cut out photos and glue on backs of jack-o-lantern faces. Use black pen to draw spider web designs around photos if desired. Glue string on back of page so jack-o-lanterns dangle from the top left edge. Let dry.
Using pattern, cut out purple stairs; cut strips of a different colored paper slightly longer than stairs on each side and glue to top of steps. Refer to photo. Let dry.
Cut a 5” x 7” piece from the green “Holiday Sprinkles” paper. Position in center of page, leaving approximately 3½” at bottom for placing stairs. Cut a 4” x 6½” piece from the orange paper and score ¼” in from left edge to allow door to open. Glue onto green section, aligning bottom edges. Let dry.
Cut a 3½” x 6½” piece from yellow paper. Open door and glue yellow paper inside. Let dry. Cut out and glue your “scariest” Halloween photo onto yellow paper and “frame” with black paper if desired. Use black pen to write “welcome” or word of choice onto yellow paper in scary font, then cut out in the shape of a dialogue box and glue next to photo. Let dry.

Center the first step directly under the bottom of door and glue. Stick three Pop Dots to back of second step (one on each end and one in center) and position below the first stair to make it dimensional. For the third stair, stack two Pop Dots (sides and center) and position below second stair.
