Have a spooktacular Halloween with these easy DIY crafts to hang around the home!
27/Oct/2016

Now the kids are on half term holiday and the days are getting colder and shorter, it can be a struggle to keep them occupied indoors... how about some DIY crafting and home decorating for Halloween....

Here's some ideas...

#1 Old jam jars come become your best friend at Halloween. Wrap in muslin cloth or crepe paper, stick on some googly eyes and whack a light inside. Hooray.

#2 Use a plastic glove or an unused washing up glove, fill it with water or your beverage of choice and tie a rubber band really tightly around the end. Put it in the freezer and whenever necessary, cut the glove off. Voila…creepy frozen hand 

#3 Ever make snowflakes out of paper…well this is the same idea except make sure to tape down one side and instead of cutting triangles cut strips down one side…

#4 Bat Lamp…simply cut out Halloween themed shapes from black paper or card and attach to a plain lamp shade with double sided tape for easy removal… you could do pumpkins, bats, cats etc…

#5 Frankenstein your front door… simply cut out of card the necessary features to turn your front door into a Halloween character…

#6 Glow sticks and toilet rolls have never been so freaky! Cut eye holes in different shapes out of old toilet rolls and place a glow stick instead, place in hedges or in plant pots outside.

#7 Pumpkin Fan Faces … For each decoration, you'll need to accordion-fold 8 1/2-by-11-inch sheets of coloured paper, making 1/2- or 3/4-inch folds the fold them in half to make a fan. Use a glue stick to attach strips to fans, and fans to one another, forming a circle. Add a face and some string and hang where desired.

#8 Using coloured card and some string you can create a variety of different bunting styles…letters, shapes or traditional triangles…just be sure to use a hole punch twice at the top of each piece to thread your string through.
