Halloween Decorations: 63 Must Have Craft Items

by Donna Monday

Halloween is a fun time of year, especially if you love making craft projects. Homemade Halloween craft projects can range from the very simple Halloween paper crafts, to an elaborate display. If the whole family is going to participate in making Halloween decorations, then you should plan way ahead of time and know exactly what items you'll need to create all the spooky critters and creatures that will adorn your home.

It's a good idea to buy either plastic drawer organizers, and/or storage boxes to keep all of the common tools and craft supplies you'll be using--all in an easy-to-find place. Do your shopping early so that you'll have plenty of time to find everything you'll need. It's also a good idea to keep specific items in separate compartments or boxes and label them clearly.

Here is a list of craft supplies and tools you may want to have on hand:

Tools

** Art brushes ** Craft knife ** Decorative edge craft scissors ** Dressmaker's wheel ** Foam Paintbrushes ** Hot glue gun and glue sticks ** Kitchen knife ** Hole punch with a heart, star, or other designs ** Paintbrushes ** Palette knife or plastic knife ** Paper scissors ** Pinking shears ** Pencils and ballpoint pens ** Rubber mallot

Supplies
