Cut two circles from orange felt. Cut out eyes, nose, and mouth from the black felt as well as the stem for the top of the pumpkin. Glue the eyes, nose, and mouth onto the face of the pumpkin. With black floss, stitch the two circles together.

Put the stem at the top between the two pieces of fabric. Add a few tighter stitches at the bottom and the top to pucker the fabric slightly. Just before you finish it completely all the way around, insert stuffing – enough to make it slightly puffy but not hugely puffy! Then finish stitching.

Take the wire and wind it around a pencil to make a coil. Add a dab of glue to each end of the wire and push between the two pieces of felt. Press down and allow the glue to dry completely. If you like, you can reinforce the handle with a few extra stitches. And there you have your stuffed hanging pumpkin!

Take the plate and color or paint it completely orange. Let dry. At this point, there are two ways you can approach this. You can choose to make it just a hanging pumpkin or make it into a mask. If you just want a hanging decoration, cut out eyes, nose, and a mouth from the black construction and glue on the front.

You can also make it into a fun mask by cutting out the eyes. If you like, you can also cut out the nose and mouth.

Out of the green construction paper, cut out two leaf shapes to glue at the top for the stem. If you like, you can trace your child’s hand and use those as the leaves. This gives the pumpkin a personal touch and makes it really cute!

For the hanging pumpkin, punch a hole in the top, put some string through the hole, and hang! If you are making a mask you can either glue the craft stick at the bottom or punch a hole in either side of the plate and put a piece of string through each hole which you will tie at the back!

Outdoor Halloween Decorations : The Ultimate Guide

Today I'm telling outdoor halloween decorations that you can make easily. Here you will get outdoor halloween decorations ideas that will fit on your budget.

Outdoor Halloween Decorations – Tarantula from Trash Bags

Create a large spider that will look scary in your yard outside and is easily made from fallen leaves. If you’ve ever wanted a use for those leaves, this is a fun way to bag them and make your yard look great for Halloween.

Also chec :-  Happy Valentines Day Quotes

Supplies:
18 large trash bags (black)
Leaves or newspapers
Black electrical tape
Large red plastic party cups
Clothesline (optional)

To make the spider’s body, stuff a trash bag full of  leaves (or crumpled up newspaper). Tie the bag closed, and then flip the bag upside down. To make the spider’s head, stuff another bag (not as full as the first), tie it closed and tape it to the body.

To make a leg, lengthwise roll two garbage bags together. Wrap the bags with electrical tape at both ends and use the tape at 2 spots along the leg to make leg joints. Roll up 7 more legs, then cut 4 small slits in the spider’s body and slip the legs in place.

Cut the white lip off two of the red plastic cups, and tape the cups to the spider’s body to make his beady red eyes. For fangs, cut 2 triangles from the 3rd plastic cup (or another piece of plastic) and tape them with the white side showing on the spider as fangs.

Set the spider on top of a big pile of leaves. To create a web for the spider, simply weave and tie lengths of clothesline or twine across your front porch. An extra scary effect would be to tie a few unlucky stuffed animals to her web. You can also purchase webs at the store.

Outdoor Halloween decorations – Spooky Giant Spider

This craft will take a trip to the local hardware store for supplies, but it will be well worth your time! Make a couple of them and hang them on your house as if they were attacking you! Here are the supplies you need:

Craft knife
Empty, clean gallon milk jug
Black duct tape
Four 6-foot black foam pipe insulation tubes ½” in diameter
2 plastic eggs (from Easter)
Green tape

Use a craft knife (adults only) to cut off the spout of the milk jug and completely cover the jug with black duct tape. To create the 8 legs, tape the center of each of the 4 pipe insulation tubes across the handle side of the jug. Tape the tubes to the sides of the jug as well, to keep them bent.

With scissors, cut and remove a 1-inch-deep notch from the middle of each leg, then bend the insulation at the notches and tape the bent joints in place. For eyes, stick black tape pupils on the 2 broader ends of a pair of plastic eggs. Tape the eyes in place on the jug.

Finally, decorate the top of the spider body with green duct tape, and your oversize arachnid is ready to tape or tie in place on a front porch or door. This looks especially good with purchased spider web that you can get at most discount stores or craft stores.

Outdoor Halloween Decorations – Tombstones

You can make Halloween tombstones using several different mediums.  To make them out of wood, use a jigsaw to cut them into the shape of a rounded tombstone.  Then paint them using black or gray paint.  Use white or black paint to write funny sayings about your family on the tombstones. You can just put your family’s individual names and R.I.P. (Rest In Peace) on the tombstones.  Or use your imagination and be creative.

To insert the tombstones in the ground, just screw some long screws into the bottom of the tombstone, leaving a large part of the screw sticking out.  Then the tombstone can go into the ground and not fall over.

You can make tombstones following the same method above using heavy duty cardboard.  If you use cardboard, make sure you spray the tombstones with a sealant to keep them from collapsing in wet weather.

To put in the cardboard tombstones in the ground, just cut a wire hanger into pieces and insert into the cardboard leaving a portion of the wire sticking out.  Then push them into the ground to secure.
You can also experiment around with other materials like styrofoam or moldable plastic.  It’s all up to you since these are easy and fun to have in the yard.

Make your tombstones look like they are in a graveyard after you plant them into the ground. Make a small mound of dirt in front of the tombstone to simulate a fresh grave.  You can also use some mulch spread out over a large black trash bag which will also provide a nice musty smell to go along with the Halloween sounds and sights.

So passers-by can see your graveyard, put out a few lights to highlight your creativity.  Insert a directional light fixture (with a blue light) 8 -12 inches in front of the tombstone.  Cover the back of the light fixture with aluminum foil so that it won’t reflect back on the viewers. Spray paint the aluminum foil brown and cover it with mulch to hide the lighting fixture.

Add dead flowers, fake hands, spiders, monster masks on wig heads or other spooky items to the gravesite.  Add some spider webs around the tombstones.  You can buy spider webs in spray form at many discount stores.  Even the dollar stores carry items like fake hands and spider webs. Dead flowers can really make your graveyard special, so be on the lookout in your own yard as well as others for flowers that have withered and died. Dead flowers will give your graveyard the authenticity it deserves.

Make Holloween Crafts - Pumpkin Pouch, Paper Plate Pumpkin Sheet Ghost

In this post we are telling how to make Holloween crafts such as pumpkin pouch, paper plate pumpkin, and sheet ghost.

Halloween Crafts – Pumpkin Pouch

This is a great craft for teachers to use in the classroom. After the students have made their pumpkin pouches, they can hang them from their desks making it an ideal holding spot for treats and such.

You will need two paper plates – one for the base and then half of the other one for the pouch, orange construction paper or orange paint, green construction paper, and black paint or black construction paper.

Begin by stapling the half plate to the bottom of the other plate. It works best when you have the Styrofoam plates that are slightly deep to give the best pocket effect. You can also hole punch between both plates and have the child “sew” them together with orange or black yarn.

Paint or color your pumpkin orange. You can also do a modge podge technique by having the child tear the orange construction paper into pieces and then glue them on with a mixture of ½ water and ½ white glue. Let dry completely.

Cut out eyes, a nose, and a mouth from the black construction paper. You can also choose to paint these on if you want. The front of the pouch is where the mouth should go. Make a stem from the green construction paper and either glue or staple to the top.

Halloween Crafts – Paper Plate Pumpkin

This is a super easy craft for even little kids to make. All you need is a paper plate, some orange paint or an orange marker, black and green construction paper, glue, an ice cream stick (craft stick), and some string.

Take the plate and color or paint it completely orange. Let dry. At this point, there are two ways you can approach this. You can choose to make it just a hanging pumpkin or make it into a mask. If you just want a hanging decoration, cut out eyes, nose, and a mouth from the black construction and glue on the front.

You can also make it into a fun mask by cutting out the eyes. If you like, you can also cut out the nose and mouth.

Out of the green construction paper, cut out two leaf shapes to glue at the top for the stem. If you like, you can trace your child’s hand and use those as the leaves. This gives the pumpkin a personal touch and makes it really cute!

For the hanging pumpkin, punch a hole in the top, put some string through the hole, and hang! If you are making a mask you can either glue the craft stick at the bottom or punch a hole in either side of the plate and put a piece of string through each hole which you will tie at the back!

Halloween Crafts – Sheet Ghost

This is the easiest of all ghost crafts. All you need is a white sheet, a balloon, a rubber band, and a black marker. If you want to hang your ghost, you’ll also need some string or a broken rubber band.
Blow up the balloon and place it inside the sheet. Draw a scary face on your ghost, and you are done! To insert string for hanging, just run a threaded needle through the top – don’t pop the balloon! You can also use some string at the bottom to drape him open.

And that’s it – making Halloween crafts are easy as pie.

Halloween Crafts – Halloween Ornaments with Fun Foam

Fun foam is among the essential craft items, especially among the kids. This Halloween, collect some chunks of fun foam mainly in Halloween colors of black, orange, green and white. Now, draw some ovals and circles on the fun foam. With safety scissors let your child cut them out.

While they are cutting out the base ovals and circles, you can cut shapes from the remaining pieces of fun foam. Cut out patterns like witches, scary cats, bats, ghosts, etc. These shapes can easily be found on the internet. Now stick the varied shapes you just cut on the ovals & circles your child cut earlier. Finally, punch a hole on the top. Put a string in the hole and hang your child’s Halloween ornaments wherever you wish in the house!
