4 Low Cost Halloween Craft Ideas


by Nicola Kennedy

There are many Halloween crafts you can make for very little cost. Some are quite popular and kids enjoy doing them over and over again. Here are some Halloween crafts I have seen done by children many times over the years:

Tissue Ghost - o Take a lollipop - the large, round varieties work best. o Cover the lollipop with a tissue or two. o Tie the tissue onto the lollipop with white string or yarn. o Draw a face on the tissue with colored markers.

Halloween Placemat - o Take construction paper - Halloween colors like orange, white and black are often used. o Cut out black cats, pumpkins or Jack-O-Lanterns, spiders, and ghosts - you can use an Ellison machine if you have access to one. o Take another piece of construction paper. o Glue the cut-outs onto the whole piece of paper. o Cover the entire creation with clear contact paper.

Styrofoam Spiders - o Take a large styrofoam ball - paint it black. Leave it dry. o Once dry, glue two googly eyes on the painted sphere. o Stick black pipe cleaners into the styrofoam for the legs.

Halloween Mobile - o Take construction paper - Halloween colors like orange, white and black are often used. o Cut out black cats, pumpkins or Jack-O-Lanterns, spiders and ghosts - you can use an Ellison machine if you have access to one. o Laminate or cover all the cut-outs with clear contact paper. o Punch one hole in the laminated cut-outs. o Take a paper plate. o Decorate the plate with Halloween colors, Halloween stickers, markers or crayons. o Hole punch 5 or 6 holes around the edge. o Tie the laminated cut-outs to the paper plate with black thread or black yarn. o Hole punch 2 holes in the center of the paper plate. o Tie a piece of black string or yarn through the two holes for hanging.

There are complete books of Halloween crafts that you can purchase or check out from your public library. You can also find ideas on the internet. You don't have to spend a lot of money to have an activity for your kids to do.
