Tips & Techniques
For best results, use fresh marshmallows.1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow crème can be substituted for marshmallows.Diet, reduced-calorie, or tub margarine is not recommended.Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container.

Rice Krispies Treats™ made with the lower-sodium cereal taste great without any added salt , but, if you desire, add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the butter before melting.

Craft - Skull& flower wreath
Found this on the web. I don't have instructions but you would need a vine wreath, dollars-store skulls, black & red roses & a glue gun.
