1. Craft Stick Spider Webs

These spider webs are quick and easy to make, and they don’t require much. If you’ve got some Popsicle sticks, yarn, and glue then you’re pretty much set! This is a fun craft even for very young kids. Hang a few of these on the porch or in the hallway, and things will start getting pretty spooky!


2. Halloween Party Candy Corn Banner

Sometimes simple things are just the best, aren’t they?! To make this candy corn banner, you just paint a paper plate in a circular pattern, and then cut into triangular slices!


3. Simple Yarn Pumpkin Garland

Here’s the thing about this simple yarn pumpkin garland decoration…it actually looks really good! It’s a craft that you can help your kids make, and that you’ll really love having around. Plus, it doubles as a Thanksgiving decoration too!


4. Giant Kirigami Spider Webs

Pick up some large craft paper and grab a straight edge and scissors and you’re well on your way to creating this spooking Halloween decoration! Visit this site to learn how to make this GIANT Spider Web! This craft is fun for everyone. It’s great to see the kids faces when they unfold the paper to see what a beautiful web they’ve created!

5. Pumpkin Apple Stamps

Finally, we love these pumpkin apple stamps. Basically, you just need an apple, some paint, and some paper! You can turn them into jack-o-lanterns by painting on the faces, or just leave them as pumpkins!

  1. My grandkids are excited for Halloween already so we have been looking for crafts to make and they love the Craft Stick Spider Webs.

  2. We made the yarn pumpkins this weekend. SO cute! They were pretty easy. Took me a minute to figure out the tie off/wrapping up the actual pumpkin shape, but got it. My 3 year old wasn’t too interested and I had to stop my 7 year old from cutting off his circulation in his hand as he wrapped, plus neither could do the tie around the pumpkin BUT was cute and they are proud of their little pumpkins. It is fun to have size differences due to all our hands being different. Making the popsicle stick spider webs and pom pom spiders this week too! Thanks!

    1. LOL, sounds like it was an adventure! That’s too cute about all the different hand/pumpkin sizes. The popsicle stick spider webs should be easier for your little ones than those pumpkins. :) Love the way those pumpkins look though!

  3. I do love this post and the kids will enjoy trying some of these Halloween crafts,i really like the Pumpkin Apple Stamps.

  4. I will be making a stop at the craft store to pickup some orange yarn. The pumpkins are cute, easy and perhaps my niece will use the leftover yarn to make me a new afghan in Tennessee Volunteer orange and white!

    1. Very cool, Jean! That was our favorite craft too! So cute! And hope you get a new afghan out of it too! :) Your niece must be quite talented!
