Halloween Crafts

I’m finding myself in the odd position of having churned out dozens of Christmas ornaments in the last month or so, yet have made almost nothing for Halloween. I finally convinced my son to help me make this cheesecloth ghost last weekend, but I think that’s about all we’re going to get done. I used this tutorial at Every Day is a Craft Day, though I used a wine bottle instead of a 2-litre plastic bottle because, uh, I guess we drink more wine than soda. Looking back at the cute examples from the tutorial, I’m thinking of ripping off the nose and mouth and replacing them with just two little round eyes. I’m not sure if there is a difference between the starch you’d buy in a jug or what comes in the spray bottle. I used the spray stuff (not the aerosol, but similar, in a squirt bottle) and this didn’t actually get all that stiff.
Here are some projects I did last year, in case you weren’t one of the three or so readers I had back then! (Click to go to the original posts)
