Halloween Craft Decorations

Calling all Creepy Crafters!

We have scoured the internet and put together a great selection of Halloween-inspired crafts that are easy to do with children. More fun than frightening and certainly more cute than creepy, these crafts are ideal for any school-aged children.

Decorate your pumpkins a little differently this year!

Home-made decorated pumpkins

How adorable are these decorated baby pumpkins? All you need is plastic pumpkins, Halloween paper and Mod Podge (or PVA  glue would work just as well). Follow the link below to see a step-by-step guide to making these cuties:

Light the way with these friendly ghosts

Home-made ghostly lights for halloween

So easy to do plus if you get through as much milk as we do, you will have no problem collecting the containers to make these friendly ghost lanterns. Get a set of Christmas lights down from the loft and you can quickly create a ghostly trail to light the way for trick-or-treaters!
