Halloween Crafts


Halloween Chain

What you will need:

Black construction paper
Orange construction paper


Step 1: Cut 1-inch wide strips out of the construction paper.

Step 2: Fold one of the orange strips over until the ends touch, and glue in place, forming a circle.

Step 3: Take a black strip and place it through the orange circle. Bend the tips until the ends touch, and glue in place, linking the circles together.

Pumpkin Patch Centerpiece

What you will need:

Tissue paper scraps, or inexpensive white tissue paper, for filling

2 rubber bands
1 green chenille stem
Black or yellow construction paper
Jack-o-lantern template, optional


Step 1: Make tissue paper pumpkins in various sizes.

Step 2: Print the template, or create one of your own design. A nice touch would be to create several different faces so no two pumpkins are alike.

Step 3: Cut out the template and trace it onto black or yellow construction paper.

Step 4: Glue the faces onto the pumpkins. Omit this step if you prefer plain pumpkins.

Step 5: Group the pumpkins together in the center of your table. You can put them in a basket with a bed of imitation leaves or in a fall floral bouquet.

Black thread
Black construction paper

Step 3: Cut eight 1-inch wide strips out of the construction paper.

Step 4: Fold the strips back and forth accordion style, and glue one end of each strip to the spider, four on each side.

Step 5: Use the paint to create the spider's face.

Step 6: Allow to dry, and hang.

Note: Hang at the end of the spider's web with the small tissue paper spiders around it to create a spider's den. They also make great party favors for your guests.
