I was not always a huge fan of Halloween. Honestly, it wasn’t until having kids that my love for Halloween grew. Now my house takes on a fun and spooky appearance starting early October with fake spider webs and those carved pumpkins that hopefully make it to Halloween night. Thank you Louisiana weather for those molded-to-soon crooked smiled pumpkins.
Crafting on the other hand has always been on my list of favorites. I LOVE TO CRAFT. So when my love for Halloween grew, so did those fun Halloween craft ideas! I have 3 super easy and fun Halloween crafts that you can actually do without going to the store. Say what?! Yep, these 3 craft projects can literally been done with items found in your home, minus the plastic pumpkins. I mean, I guess you could have those in stock already? 😉
Toilet Paper Roll Mummy
These are super easy to make. You can even use a paper towel roll for this craft. Just as it looks in the picture, all you need is a cardboard roll, toilet paper / mesh fabric, and a marker. Wrap the roll with either toilet paper or some mesh fabric to give it the appearance of a mummy. Make sure to leave a space at the top for its eyes and mouth! If you have googly eyes, these could be glued on instead of drawing on the eyes.
Gallon Jug Ghost Lights
This was probably one of the first Halloween crafts I did. All you need is an empty gallon jug, black sharpie, and scissors. Cut an opening out of the back of the jug. This is to make it easier for putting a tea light in the jug. Lastly, draw a ghost face onto the front of the jug. I place these cute ghosts on the front porch and turn on fake tea light candles in them. Hello Casper!
