2 simple Halloween DIY’s the kids will love

Happy almost Halloween! What better way to get in the spirit than to make some Halloween crafts with your littles? Try out a couple of our favorite DIY’s that require just a few supplies.

Lollipop Ghosts 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Kleenex tissues
  • Round lollipops (we used Tootsie Pops)
  • Black sharpie
  • Tiny elastic rubber bands
  • Thin orange and black ribbon

How to make these super easy ghosts:

1. Take 2 full size tissues. Cut the second tissue into quarter size pieces.

2. Put 1 quarter size tissue in the middle of the full Kleenex. The double layer helps hide the color of the pop.

3. Pick a lollipop and set it in the middle of the tissue. Wrap the tissue around the lollipop and use one of the elastic rubber bands to hold it all in place.

4. Cut a couple of pieces of ribbon (color of your choice) and tie a bow around the elastic rubber band.

5. Use a black sharpie to draw two black dots for the eyes.

How easy was that? You have the cutest little ghosts that are perfect for decoration in just 5 steps!

  • Black paint
  • Paintbrush

  • White craft glue

How to make this purrrrfect craft:

  1. We all know painting can get messy, so make sure the surface you are panting on is covered so you can save from a big mess.
  2. Second, you’ll want to paint the entire front side of the paper plate.
  3. Use the pattern linked above to cut the cat pieces from the plate (this was a life saver) :-).
  4. Glue the head and tail on the body. Let it dry.
  5. Add eyes, nose, and whiskers.

You now have the purrrfect craft!
