Halloween Masquerade Ball Invitation
You can use a cardboard box in making a scary coffin. Also get a large-size cardboard piece and cut out the shape of a coffin for the opening/cover. Paint a red or white cross over the top of the coffin. You can imitate the sound of stepping over a mass of bones by drying bread in the oven and placing them under an area rug. Cut out stone hedges out of Styrofoam paint them gray and write R.I.P. over them with a marker. You can also write your names or guest s names for that spooky feeling. Make body parts by stuffing rubber/latex gloves with cotton and painting the opening red for that bloody effect. For a realistic touch to your home decor you can fill goblets with blood and display them in hallways and your dining area! This will enhance that vampire-in-coffin feel.
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. Skeletons The most common skeleton man would be made out of white or luminous paint on black background. You can however create a good looking skeleton with different kinds of pasta. Wouldn t it be awesome to do some Halloween arts and crafts to transform your home into one of the scariest haunted houses in town? Your kids will absolutely love this idea. All you need is a theme some accessories appropriate lighting and sound effects. Cemetery Halloween Arts and Crafts Theme Coffins bones stone hedges and dead bodies are appropriate for a cemetery theme.
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.
Paint a scary face of the ghost on the balloon and tie a string to the knot. Hang up these creepy balloons to trees in the yard. You may also put a few bells to the end of the strips so that they make a sound with the movement of the wind. Enjoy the haunting chimes of the ghosts moving around in your yard! Halloween decorations can be a good way to bond with family and friends. It can be a fun activity done together enjoying each other s company and getting to know the creativity of your children while experimenting with these decorations.
