You can use a cardboard box in making a scary coffin. Also get a large-size cardboard piece and cut out the shape of a coffin for the opening/cover. Paint a red or white cross over the top of the coffin. You can imitate the sound of stepping over a mass of bones by drying bread in the oven and placing them under an area rug. Cut out stone hedges out of Styrofoam paint them gray and write R.I.P. over them with a marker. You can also write your names or guest s names for that spooky feeling. Make body parts by stuffing rubber/latex gloves with cotton and painting the opening red for that bloody effect. For a realistic touch to your home decor you can fill goblets with blood and display them in hallways and your dining area! This will enhance that vampire-in-coffin feel.
Cut out several pumpkin faces and tape these to the windowpane. You can light up the window by just placing a table lamp on the inside. This will throw up spooky shadows to greet your visitors. Decorative candles are another easy Halloween art décor. Glue on trinkets beads colored threads or buttons to some dark colored candles or use candles in the classic Halloween colors of orange and black. You can use decorations like fake cobwebs or spiders to give a creepy look to the candles. Simple white school glue will be sufficient to stick on these items. Halloween games and activities are the perfect way to give kids a treat as Halloween approaches. The closer Halloween gets the more excited the kids get so you will want a few Halloween games and activities up your sleeve to keep them busy and entertained and out of mischief.
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.
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.
