The other day we explored some clever ways to play with pumpkins.
Now let’s bring in the spooks!
Those tacky white crepe paper wedding bells find a way to shine in this clever craft. Attach construction paper eyes and mouth with glue dots and drape with cheesecloth for a quick and easy touch of spookiness.
Painted silk leaves from the craft store and some simple basic craft supplies come together in these cute little leaf ghosts. A great craft for kids!
I love crafts that recycle everyday objects. Wash and dry milk jugs, paint on ghostly faces, drop in a set of mini lights, and you can give your guests a ghostly guide to the door. (Hmmm… I wonder if the orange juice jugs would work for pumpkins? Just cut out the face instead of drawing it on.)
No milk jugs handy? That’s okay. You could always grab a few Mason jars and try these instead! Super simple and could easily be adapted to other holiday characters.
Preserve a memory of little feet and decorate for the Halloween at the same time! Shown here on a plaque, but the possibilities are endless. I think it would be a great idea for a custom doormat: Paint a basic sisal doormat in black, stamp the whole family’s feet, and finish off with a spooky welcome message.
