Simple Halloween Craft

By October 10, 2014Crafts, DIY Projects, Halloween, Holidays

Halloween is one of those holidays that we all love in our house. However, most of the time I like keeping the decorations fun and kid friendly rather than scary and gross, with the exception of Grim – he was pretty cool! This simple Halloween Craft was really fun to make, and with a few supplies, you can make your own too.

We were inspired by the Spooky Banner over on Organize & Decorate Everything, for the faces, but used craft paper and Duck Tape to create the pendants. The Banner did take a little time, but it was fun to get creative with the faces.

Halloween Banner Supplies

  • Brown Craft Paper or heavy paper – found in the office supply area at Walmart
  • Duck Tape – there are tons of different colors and patterns available
  • Scissors
  • X-ACTO Knife
  • Ruler
  • Cutting Mat
  • Instructions – these are the general directions, then I will tell you about each face individually

Step 1

  • Draw out the faces you want to create. We didn’t stick exactly to the drawings, but it was good to have them drawn out to use as a guide

Step 2

  • Add 7 inch strips of Duck Tape to the craft paper vertically – you will need about 7 strips

Step 3

  • Cut out a triangle from the Duck Tape – I cut 6 inches across the top and 9 inches long

Step 4

  • Now it’s time to add the faces. They are very easy, but I thought you might like to see each one that we created.

After you are all done with the pendants, punch a hole toward the top on each side, and run a string through to hang it.

Have fun! Happy creating!
