5 Great Ways to Spook Your Spouse!Halloween may not be a very romantic holiday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate it by giving your spouse shivers! WARNING: These suggestions should NOT be used on somebody who is taking heart medication. Especially #5!

1. Creepy Finger Soap. Trade them out for the Irish Springs in time for their morning shower. Talk about waking up! Save one to drop in the pocket of the jacket they’ll be wearing that day – a little something to make them think about you later on!

5 Ways to Spook Your Spouse3. Toilet guests. Nothing says good morning – and Happy Halloween – quite like some critters hanging out under the lid! (If you want a little variety, a plastic rat can have a similar impact!)

5 Ways to Spook Your Spouse4. Jeepers, creeperswhere’d you get those peepers? For a ghastly surprise, attach them to something in the closet. Be sure to unscrew the lightbulb so the glow in the dark feature is at it’s best. Just your Halloweeny way to say to your spouse: “I only have eyes for you, hon!”

5 Ways to Spook Your Spouse5. Head in a Jar. In the refrigerator! You may want to have a camera set up for this one! I stumbled upon this last year and have waited patiently for a whole year to share this chilling delight. (I thought about including it as an illustration in the Deadhead Your Marriage post, but I wasn’t sure the humor would have been appreciated appropriate there.) [Click pic for the gruesome how-tos]

  • Five great reasons why I am not a fan of Halloween. Glad G doesn’t read blogs or do FB…

  • Shmoly smokes, these are great. And creepy. Those sugar cookie fingers. Egads.

    • Shel Harrington

      Can you even imagine opening up your lunchbox and seeing those creepy digits pointing right at you, Jen?? Bwahahahahaha! (Obviously I can!)

    • Shel Harrington

      Hopefully in a creepy sort of way! Thanks for stopping by, Letty!

  • Beth Silvers

    Ron is such a scary person, he would freak out on these I personally love Halloween.

  • The sugar cookie fingers are too creepy for words!
    I should get some for my husband as pay back. Last Halloween, he carefully placed work boots beneath the closed drapes in front of the sliding glass doors to the patio. They peeked out just enough too look like someone had gotten in the house and was hiding behind the drapes.
    Yep, he deserves the sugar cookie fingers, and maybe the soap, too! πŸ˜‰

      AND the head in the jar, Marylin! He could have given you a heart attack! Having said that, he sounds like a guy I’d love to trade ideas with – that was a good one!

  • Lindsey

    Love this!

    • Shel Harrington

      Glad I could put a sinister smile on your face, Lindsey!

  • How do I love thee, Shel? Let me count the ways. THESE ARE AWESOME!! And you KNOW what a Halloween nut I am!

    • Shel Harrington

      And they are so versatile, Amy – the jarhead and google eyes could be used again for April Fool’s day!!

  • Oh, major YUCK! I would not do any of these because I’d be afraid of the retaliation…

    Last year when I went in early to the office of the college where I teach as adjunct, there were cockroaches in several places. Creeped out, I left until someone else would be in the office. Turned out it was part of the decor for the planned Halloween party that day — plastic roaches. Took me weeks to get over the trauma. πŸ˜›

      I respect your decision, Natine. Retaliation would be swift, merciless, and potentially ongoing – I know your people!

  • These are just the sort of things my daughter would love to scare me with and then laugh at my terror, ha πŸ™‚

    • Shel Harrington

      Do you happen to have your daughter’s address handy, Sherri? I’m just asking because I would like to send her a Christmas card.

  • Oh my word, Shel! That head in the jar would give me a heart attack! And those fingers…this is why I don’t like Halloween…I’m a big chicken!

    • Shel Harrington

      I have to admit, Jill, I’d rather be the prankER than the prankEE!!
