Holidays are amplified when you have kids. Halloween comes back to life. And with it, so do a list of fun DIY projects that you can do with your family.
Looking for some spooky inspiration? Here are some fun and easy Halloween DIY projects you can do with your kids:
1. Spooky cut-out garlands.
2. Use your printer.
Speaking of templates, one secret to those amazing Martha Stewart-like decorations is the printer. Parents.com offers a variety of free print-out Halloween projects. There is no easier or cheaper way to make pop-up pumpkins, spooky labels — even Halloween games and paper dolls.
3. Creative lanterns.
4. Make your own treat boxes.
Instead of buying a pre-made candy bucket or bag, make your own this year. Two Gals and a Blog has a list of 10 Halloween crafts for kids, including a link to making a treat bag, via the blog Treat Celebrate Explore.
5. A trick-or-treat wreath.
We love this seasonal wreath, which you can make alongside your kids. Cut out canvas triangles for oversized candy corns and let your kids glue them together. We love the button accents.
You could also make a much simpler (and disposable) version of this Halloween wreath using construction paper and cardboard.
Pick up craft supplies at Michaels online. You can also find plenty of home decor (premade) here, too, for the things you can’t or don’t have time to make yourself. Save money on Michaels purchases by using a coupon, which you can find here.
Here’s a DIY trick for you: Use premade craft kits to make your projects easier, like this Halloween banner kit from Michaels. Embellish as much or as little as you’d like, and let your kids add a personal touch.
