Halloween is all about wearing the dress you never even imagine of wearing on any other day of the year.
Table sprinkles in the form of ghosts pumpkins witches or bats can be used to give that creepy look. Place these decorated candles around the house and watch them light up the evening! Another art and craft Halloween decoration is the creepy balloon ghost which is very easy to make. All you need is white balloons and plastic grocery bags. The bags should be plain with no writing on them. Here is how to create a spooky ghost: Cut off the handles of the grocery bag. Leaving the bottom of the bag intact with the help of scissors cut the bag into dangling strips up to about an inch from the bottom seam. In the same manner cut up another grocery bag. Fill up the balloon with air and knot it up. Tape the seam of one bag to the front and the other to the back leaving the knot on top.
You can spray-paint the bags either orange or black or use the colors for alternately placed bags. Weigh down the bags with sand and place small tea candles or votive candles inside glass votive cups in the bags. You can place these creepy luminaries all along the walkway up to the front porch for a spooky effect. It is a great way to lead the trick-or-treaters towards the treats awaiting them. A glass luminary can be made by using simple glass canning jars. Cut out a skeleton face a ghost face or a pumpkin face on a sheet of paper. Tape the paper to the front of the jar and spray paint with either black or orange color. Place a candle inside the jar and light it up to give an eerie look to the house! Another simple Halloween decoration can be made with the help of orange construction paper.
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.
