This spiky iron candelabra attracts eerie creatures like Edgar Allen Poe's ravens
. Just two or three casually placed ravens make more of a spooky statement than a whole tree-full. Unless, of course, you want to recreate the school playground scene from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds
. Ravens, rats, bats, black cats and spiders can be found at Halloween specialty shops, online and in the holiday aisles of mass-merchandise stores.
