Pumpkins Gone are the days of messy pumpkin carving. You can easily have pumpkin paper lanterns as Halloween arts and crafts for kids projects. If you don t like lanterns you can still make pumpkins out of paper plates milk containers and construction paper. One other great alternative would be pumpkin baskets made of paper mache. Witches Paper plates and cardboard can be used when making a witch Halloween arts and crafts for kids. As an alternative you can create a witch doctor look instead of a western witch by incorporating beaded necklaces and homemade stuffed voodoo dolls. Spiders Spiders are among the most popular Halloween arts and crafts for kids. Spiders can be as simple as construction paper or egg cup carton hangers. They can also be made of pom poms or colored cotton balls.
For the ghost garland use a black string and for the pumpkin garland use a green string. Drape these garlands wherever you feel like and decorate your home. Halloween crafts are a lot of fun to make with both kids and adults. Last year I threw a party for my girlfriends where we all made Halloween crafts. Everyone brought a couple supplies and we spent the evening making different crafts. It was so much fun my girlfriends made me promise to do it again this year! I am already planning some new craft ideas and today I will mention a few great ideas I have uncovered. The first cute Halloween craft idea is to make specimen jars. This is actually a very inexpensive craft and something anyone can do even children. I found several glass jars at the dollar store and this will be the base for the craft.
Skeletons Legs The skeleton legs like the arms have string running through them. As before double the string up and wrap around a peg half so that the string slots into the groove that the spring grabbing bit of metal once was. Make a loop and feed the remaining string through the loop so that the peg half is attached to the end of the string (shaped side up). This is the skeleton s foot. Make the shin like the forearm with two peg halves the tapered end pointing towards the foot. The thigh starts off in the same way as the upper arm with two peg halves sandwiching the string and the rounded part meeting the rounded part of the shin. On top of this two more peg halves are attached. Join these peg halves with their rounded ends glued to the tapering pegs of the upper arm like pegs and stick their tapered tip together with the string sandwiched between.
Leave the string thread long on the legs. Make two legs alike and leave to one side to dry. Skeletons Shoulder Blade Take the main skeleton part with the spoon and ribs and place it face down on the table. Just above the ribs and still leaving the skeleton a neck glue the skeleton s shoulders to the spoon handle. (Tapered ends to the spoon) To support the shoulders make some shoulder blades in the same way as you made the ribs and glue them to the shoulder pieces and over the spoon. Leave to dry. Skeletons Pelvis To make the skeleton s pelvis bone you firstly need to make three ribs. Glue the ribs to the back of the main part just above the end of the spoon handle. Don t leave any gaps between the rib like parts of the pelvis. Leave these parts to dry before continuing. Turn the skeleton over.
