If you’re like me, you’ve probably waited until the last minute to put the details together for your Halloween plans. Here are a few of my favorite crafts that will help set the tone for spooky fun on the week leading up to Halloween. I’ve included decorating ideas as well as some kids’ crafts, and costume ideas for the little ones who haven’t yet decided what they want to be!
These Popsicle Haunted Houses are fun to build and make great decorations.
Did you make the Bat Cape with me or do you just want a spooky mask? Masks are an essential part of many Halloween costumes. This Bat Mask will take your costume up a notch. You can also edit this mask to fit your needs.

Halloween is fast approaching and it’s time to start putting out the first of the decorations for the year. Greet your guests or the trick-or- treaters this year with a fun Halloween themed banner. It’s made even spookier with this great paper from Carta Bella!
If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.
What kid doesn’t love Halloween? It’s full of spooky fun and, of course, candy. Let your kids celebrate all month long with these fun and easy kids crafts! They can help make fun decorations to show off to trick-or-treaters, guests, and their friends.
Won’t your child be so proud of their very own candy corn centerpiece? They don’t need much direction to create their own decoration, and can show it off in no time. It’s perfect for a party or table setting all month long.
I love how bright and cheerful this bunting is. It allows for a lot of creativity from your little ones and looks great strung up on a wall. There are so many options for this bunting, your kids won’t want to stop creating!
As a child who lived in the North and the South, I trick or treated in snow and in a heat wave. However, Halloween costumes seem to be mainly designed for warm temperatures and don’t really have room to jam a snowsuit under. This bat cape is a great compromise. If you live in a colder climate, put as many warm layers on as you need, just make sure the top layer is black. If it’s going to be a warm Halloween, a black T-shirt and black leggings are all you need to make this costume work. This is also great work appropriate costume if your office dresses up for Halloween. Save your scraps from this project, you’ll use them to finish this costume later this month!
