How To Spook: Halloween Crafts

by How To Mommy on 09.26.11

I’m in charge of picking out a Halloween craft for one of my moms groups, so naturally I headed to over to Pinterest.

{If you’ve not checked out Pinterest, you really should…you can find lots of cool stuff over there!}

I was surprised how many cute items there were, so I thought I’d share a few of my top contenders with you!

Choice #1

Spiderweb Balloon
Basically, you soak black string in glue and wrap it around a balloon.  Once it’s dry, you pop the balloon and attach orange spiders.  I liked this because I thought it’d be a relatively easy and inexpensive craft that would look pretty impressive hanging from our porches!

Choice #2

Toilet Paper Pumpkins and Ghost Pops

Here, you wrap a roll of toilet paper with orange tissue and stuff the top with green tissue and glue on a face.  For the ghosts, you simply wrap a tootsie pop with white fabric and draw on a face.  I liked this idea because it would be one we could take back and do with our kids.

Choice #3

Ghost Luminaries
With this craft you just paint two coats of acrylic white paint on clean glass jars and draw on a ghost face.  Then, you light them with a real candle or battery-operated one.  You can make several and line them along your porch or sidewalk.  I liked these for their simplicity and thought they’d have a pretty big “wow” factor.

What do you think of these?  Which one would you do?  Do you have favorite Halloween crafts to share?
