If you are a creative type, or just want to by, look into arts and crafts, Halloween decorations that you can make to get you started into the wonderful world of crafts! Arts and crafts Halloween decorations are not only fun to make, but they really can give your home a festive look on this fun holiday. You do not have to be a master artisan to make arts and crafts Halloween decorations. All you need is some imagination, creativity, and some supplies and you are ready to go! Try a few of these simple ideas:
One of our favorite and easiest arts and crafts Halloween decorations to make is creepy candles. Get some candles in dark colors or in the classic colors of Halloween – orange and black. Gather some trinkets together like sequins, beads, and even candy corn. The selection is limitless. In our local dollar store, they even have table sprinkles in the shapes of bats, ghosts, pumpkins, and witches. Now, if you use small objects like these, you should probably use tweezers. I’ve even seen people glue on the fake cobwebs which makes for a really neat look! Using simple white school glue, glue these trinkets all around the candle until you like the way it looks. Place them all around the house and enjoy the way they look!
Arts and crafts Halloween decorations can be great projects for friends and family to do together. Enjoy each other’s creativity and learn from each other as you try out new techniques or just experiment around.
Here’s another one of our arts and crafts Halloween decorations that we use in our home. I love having scary things hanging from our trees. Make a creepy balloon ghost from a simple white balloon and two plain plastic grocery bags. Cut the handles off the bags along with any writing that is on them. Leaving the bottom seam end, use scissors to shred the bag into “danglies” until you get about one inch away from the seam. Blow up the balloon and knot it. With the knot at the top, take tape and tape the seam of one bag to the front of the balloon and one to the front. I like to use black electrical or duct tape because it holds better. Draw a scary face on your ghost and attach a string to the knot of the balloon. Sometimes, I like to attach a couple of bells to the bottom of my ghosts so I can hear them haunting my yard! I make several of these and hang them all over the yard which is a lot of fun for my neighbors and friends!
Arts and crafts Halloween decorations can be easy or difficult, but there’s no doubt about it, when you make your own Halloween decor, the possibilities are limited only by your own creativity!
