With only a day left until Halloween I wanted to put together a small compilation of different websites and blogs that are showing Halloween craft tutorials. Later today I plan on posting about different Halloween party ideas in case you are in need of some last minute ideas, or get in the mood to throw an impromptu party and need quick help.
In need of some scary props for your décor or haunted house? Well, Halloween Haunted House may just be the answer. They share how-to make a zombie head, a flying ghost, and even guts.
For the more family friendly crafts, Disney’s Family Fun magazine shares a variety of crafts and ideas to involve the entire family. I really like these salt dough ghosts and I adore the paper bag trees.
There’s also a how-to video to walk you through the steps to create your own. The actual magazine is pretty great too. Several things are in the magazine and on the site so I like that. It’s just a really fun site to explore.
Many of the magazines you might see at the checkout counters have websites and quite a few of them like Woman’s Day have sections for the different holidays including this fabulous one for Halloween. It has a little bit of everything for all of your Halloween needs: decorating indoors, outdoors, throwing a party, costume ideas, food, etc.
Craftown has a large list of craft projects. Note that some do not have pictures and even those listed with an asterisk, meaning that they include photos, may only have a sketch or a very small picture.
Of course the Family Crafts section as About.com is filled with links to other crafty sites.
Bright Ideas has different treats to make for your little ghosts and goblins, like these Night Owl cookies (pictured above courtesy of brightideas.com).
That about sums up my “small compilation” for this year; I hope it was helpful.
