Kids' Halloween Crafts That Are Fun for the Whole Family
We've compiled our favorite Halloween kids' projects for you and your little goblins. Try your hand at making decoupage pumpkins, garlands, pasta skeletons, and even Halloween-themed piñatas!
Plaster Hands
Those wiggling, groping appendages at the end of your arms seem to have a life of their own, and the sight of other people's hands causes you to break out in a sweat. On Halloween, consider taking your fear in hand and making five-fingered candleholders and tabletop decorations. These are made of plaster and get a ghoulish gray cast from a brush with black gouache.
Chicken Costume
Why did the chicken cross the road? To go trick-or-treating, of course. This funny costume is made from two tickly feather boas, ordinary kitchen gloves, tights, and a pilot's cap that's crowned with a felt comb. Under the plumage, two leotards are stuffed with batting for extra plumpness.
Fabric Pumpkins
A novice sewer can easily stitch up this pumpkin patch, rendered in matte and lustrous linen, silk, and velvet. Set the sewn pumpkins among real ones (some natural-hued, others spray-painted) in a cool autumnal scene of spare branches and scattered leaves spray-painted silver.
