Spooky Crafts

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

Whether you love spooky decor or silly touches in your home, Halloween crafts are so fun to make and display! Make haunting decor with a few simple supplies. Hang “Trick or Treat” artwork made from vinyl and paint. Decorate candle votives with black lace trim. Glow-in-the-dark dimensional paint lights up the night as spooky shapes on candles. Or wrap a wreath with orange-and-black ribbon for a classic door hanging. Do the monster mash with kid-friendly monster shapes. Felt pouches hide little treats, chocolate bars and icing form yummy treats, and fabric tissue holders catch “boogie” monsters. Serve spooky treats topped with ghost shapes or hide them in pumpkin boxes. Need some Halloween bling? Make a cameo skeleton necklace to wear through the season.
