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 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.
