Halloween Crafts

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. 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. 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!
