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.
