Halloween Window Silhouettes Template
Here is a wonderful Halloween craft we have found for you. If your house has some bushes at the front then this Halloween craft is sure to make you real popular in your area. First take a white plain sheet and fold it into half. Place a few newspapers inside the fold. Using some black fabric paint of a black marker draw a ghost face on the sheet and leave to dry. once its dry hang it around your bushes and tightly secure it with clothespin at the back. Another art and craft Halloween idea is to make your house look really scary and festive by hanging luminaries. First take any brown lunch bag and use orange paint to paint it. Use an X-acto knife or a pair of scissors to cut out a pumpkin face. Make sure its scary. Fill sand at the bottom for about half an inch and take a tea light or a votive candle and submerge it at the bottom.
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.
Cut out some eyes from construction paper and stick them on the jars before you put on the tissue so you can have the eyes slightly covered and just peeking. Cats What s Halloween without black cats? Use paper plates to create cat masks or some cotton and crepe paper to create billowing streamers.
