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.
Then use a witch s hat for the covered scarecrow head. Punch a hole in the hat where the hook of the hanger can go through. Hang the body over windows doors or cabinet handles. For cobwebs you can use cottons which you can spread all over the place. Cotton cobwebs is great for any theme you may have in mind. You can also use washable paint on your windows-you can either use spooking green all over or apply splashes of red for "blood". Replace your white bulbs with black orange or red ones bulbs for an eerie lighting effect. You can also cover lamps with colored cloth or netting for eerie shadows. Halloween is a time when one can experiment with creative craft ideas to make wonderful decorations for the house. It is an opportunity to dabble in the wonderful world of art and craft.
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.
As said creativity is the master of all arts. Making candy corn out of polymer clay is quite easy and it is an excellent project for just about any age group. These little polymer clay candy corns are so cute and are great for adding to all sorts of decorations and other things. You could use them to embellish things like frames magnets candles or even for adding to scrapbooking pages. Supply List: - Polymer clay (yellow orange white) - I normally use the Sculpey brand Clear acrylic sealer (optional) Instructions: 1. Warm up each color of clay by rolling and kneading it until it feels soft. Now roll each color out until it s about 1/4" thick. Now press the three rolls together with white on top orange in the middle and yellow on the bottom. 2. Find a thin sharp edge such as a thin piece of cardboard to use to slice through the clay.
