Halloween Craft Cards
This is a great idea to decorate the nooks and crannies of fireplaces and mantles. Another great craft idea we used last year was spider eggs! All you need to make these is some eggs some paint and those little black spiders you can find at the dollar store craft store or even the toy section of Walmart or Target. You simply want to paint a portion of the egg to make it looked cracked where the spider has emerged. Then you simply want to glue the spider to the egg and you have a scary and cute hatchling! Finally the craft I am so excited to make this year is floating papier-mache ghosts! These glowing ghosts are perfect for hanging in doorways and trees. You can light these adorable ghosts with the use of battery-powered light or glow sticks! Peg art is a craft where clothes pegs are used as the building material.
There are many different Halloween games and activities that won t cost a fortune and are easy to organize. The following is a list of my top seven ways to entertain kids at Halloween. 1. Halloween board games are great fun to play but also great fun to make. Why not grab some stock card and some markers and let the kids make their own games? 2. Halloween arts and crafts will bring out the creative side of your little devils. Search online and you ll find loads of Halloween craft activities. Many Halloween crafts actually create something that can be then be used as a decoration for Halloween. Set the kids to work and they ll be making bats spiders ghosts and wreaths to decorate the house for Halloween. Best of all you ll save a fortune on your Halloween decorations.
You might want to use pliers. Braid them together and make them into a wreath/circle by twisting the top hooks together. Next tear or cut pieces of paper... about a foot long and wide. Pinch the paper strips in the middle and crunch it up as if you were making a flower. Tuck the "paper flowers" into the little holes in the braided wires and pull tight. Fill up your wreath to fullness! Spray paint it! About three coats of paint is good with about 50 minutes drying time in between. Use the kind of spray paint that holds up outside (in case of rain). Please do the spray painting outside or in a well ventilated room. Cover tables with those inexpensive plastic tablecloths. When the paint is good and dry attach the decorations with the hot (low temp is fine) glue gun. Just be careful not to burn yourself. Adults and older kids should be the glue gunners. You are done! Hang it up on your front door maybe with an orange light aimed at it.
You need a white sheet as per the size of the bush a newspaper permanent black magic marker or fabric paint and cloth pins. The idea is to make a ghost like figure by painting a ghost on the white paper folding the white sheet balancing the sheet with the newspaper and securing the figure with the help of clothespins. Sounds really simple but it is definitely going to scare the passerby. Idea #2 - The other idea for Halloween is to make your house look very festive and very scary both the inside and the outside. I will show you how to get a scary path way. You will need lots of brown lunch bags orange paint sand and tea light or votive candle. Paint the bags orange in color and cut it out to make a scary face of a pumpkin. Fill half of the pumpkin face with sand and put a candle in it and light it.
