Simple Halloween Cards
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 Legs The skeleton legs like the arms have string running through them. As before double the string up and wrap around a peg half so that the string slots into the groove that the spring grabbing bit of metal once was. Make a loop and feed the remaining string through the loop so that the peg half is attached to the end of the string (shaped side up). This is the skeleton s foot. Make the shin like the forearm with two peg halves the tapered end pointing towards the foot. The thigh starts off in the same way as the upper arm with two peg halves sandwiching the string and the rounded part meeting the rounded part of the shin. On top of this two more peg halves are attached. Join these peg halves with their rounded ends glued to the tapering pegs of the upper arm like pegs and stick their tapered tip together with the string sandwiched between.
You simply want to fill them with water and add the "specimens". Things like funny eyeballs crazy teeth or other craft supplies make cute and funny specimen jars. If you want to do something more spooky think about using cauliflower for pickled brains! Sock skeleton is one of my favorite craft ideas! You can transform a white sock into a cute and cuddly skeleton with the use of some thread and buttons for eyes. If you are someone who likes to sew this is the perfect Halloween craft! This is also a great craft for kids because they get to keep the soft skeleton all year-long. A very simple Halloween craft that doubles as great Halloween decor is spiderweb clip art. Clip art is wonderful because it is as simple as using a computer program to print whatever art you would like.
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.
