Little Hands – 3 Nifty Halloween Projects

Who is most excited about Halloween, children or adults?

Halloween, like Christmas, is not just for children. It is, however, a great opportunity for family time and family projects and since the theme is a bit “naughty,” in the free-spirited sense, even otherwise serious, professional adults gladly relax into their inner cheerful witch or zombie. For all we know, Halloween is a therapeutic affair that should be prescribed in some cases of melancholy. “Throw a Halloween party and call me next week,” the therapist might say (while wishing to be invited – he makes a stunning Dracula impression).

Here are three easy but very enjoyable Halloween craft ideas from Country Living Magazine.

First, a personal favorite: Masked Portraits. This could be especially fun if you are throwing a costume party. You can get inexpensive framed art these days that can be embellished directly, without the protection of glass, and placed around the house. As a variation, use personal photographs or images found online and placed in small, tabletop frames and turn them into spooky place markers. Whatever you do, remember that this segment is for kids, so make sure they are included in your Halloween production.

Next, a classic, Spooky Paper Cutouts, stencils and templates included.

Finally, another favorite, Gravestone Lollipops.
