Halloween Trick Or Treat Cards
This is a great idea to decorate the nooks and crannies of fireplaces and mantles. Another great craft idea we used last year was spider eggs! All you need to make these is some eggs some paint and those little black spiders you can find at the dollar store craft store or even the toy section of Walmart or Target. You simply want to paint a portion of the egg to make it looked cracked where the spider has emerged. Then you simply want to glue the spider to the egg and you have a scary and cute hatchling! Finally the craft I am so excited to make this year is floating papier-mache ghosts! These glowing ghosts are perfect for hanging in doorways and trees. You can light these adorable ghosts with the use of battery-powered light or glow sticks! Peg art is a craft where clothes pegs are used as the building material.
Skeletons Arms The skeleton arms have string or wool running through them. With a length of string doubled in half thread the loop through 6 of the discarded peg springs and then thread the rest of the string through the loop and pull tight to that the springs are firmly connected to the end of the string. This is the skeleton s hand. Stick two peg halves back to back with the string sandwiched between. The tapered end of the pegs should point to the hand. This is the forearm. In a similar fashion glue two more peg halves so that the rounded end meets the rounded ends of the forearm. This is the skeleton s upper arm. Finally make the skeletons shoulder with two more pegs the rounded ends meeting the tapered ends of the upper arm. Cut the remaining string at the tapered ends of the skeleton s shoulder. Make two arms in this way. Use some pegs as clamps to hold the pegs until the glue has started to fix the pegs. Leave to one side to dry.
Peggy the peg Art Skeleton is made from sprung clothes pegs and a wooden spoon. Peggy s arms and legs all move at their joints because the peg limbs are joined on the inside with wool to make the peg art moveable. Peggy makes a great Halloween toy or a Halloween decoration to make your house look spookier on Halloween. To make Peggy the Peg Art Skeleton you will need... Wooden Sprung Pegs (dismantled and all the springs discarded except for 6. You may wish to use some pegs as clamps whilst the glue dries.) Wood Glue Wool or String Paint Skeletons Ribs The skeleton ribs are two peg halves joined together at the tapered ends and overlapping one another about the same distance as the spoon handle is wide. Make and sick 6 ribs to the wooden spoon handle. The bottom set of ribs should not stick out as far as the ribs above so make the overlap bigger on this rib. Make sure you leave the skeleton a neck and leave some of the bottom of the spoon handle available for the pelvis bone.
You might need to use needle-nose pliers to do this. To make a pendant poke an eye pin into the candy corn as described for the earrings. Now the pendant is ready to bake. 5. Bake your candy corn creations according to the package. I baked mine for about 10 minutes at 275F which worked well. 6. (Optional) After the candy corns have cooled you could spray them with acrylic sealer to make them glossy and have a more complete look. This may take a few hours to dry completely. The above suggestions are just a few ideas for how you could use these cute clay candy corns. Take a minute and think of other fun and creative ways you could use these little embellishments. On clothes or on a costume? In a table setting for a party? Maybe on a throw pillow? There are so many possibilities for these little candy corns.
