(Short on time) 10 Minute Makes

Halloween Bat

This cute little halloween bat literally takes five minutes and the best news is that you probably have most bits and pieces at home already.  It’s easy enough for young children to get involved and quick enough so they don’t get bored half way through!  You can read the whole how to guide on Crafty Morning blog

What you need: Used toilet roll, glue, card, googly eyes and black paint.

We spotted this lovely simple little make on the Pars Caeli blog.  Make as many hanging ghosties as you like; they can go almost anywhere – ceilings, windows or bannisters. you could even cut out a batch of them and create some spooky bunting!

Glitter Pumpkins

The Martha Stewart website has loads of great craft ideas, including these glitter pumpkins.  We could probably dedicate an entire blog post to all the different pumpkin decorating ideas out there!  This is one of the simplest and as long as you don’t mind the potential for glitter to get everywhere, it’s easy for the kids to join in.

What you need: A pumpkin, glitter and glue.

(Super keen) 30 minutes or more

Yarn pumpkins

Check out the One Little Project blog for these rather ingenius yarn pumpkins.  They’re actually pretty simple but do take a little longer to make as you’ll need to allow some time for them to set.  There’s glue-related mess potential too, especially if the kids are making them, but no doubt they’ll love that!

What you need: Orange wool / yarn, glue, a balloon and a few pipe cleaners.

Halloween wreath

There are hundreds of wreath ideas, so it was difficult to pick just one.  However, we think this ribbon wreath fits the bill: the end result is pretty as well as suitable for kids to help with (and won’t scare the postman!). If you’d like to read more about how to make it, check out the Landeelu blog.

What you need: A straw wreath and lots of ribbon!

Halloween Maison Jars

We think these jars are too pretty not to include.  The best bit is that the technique can be appplied to any occasion making them so versitile.  We found these designs on the Oh So Savvy Mom blog.

What you need: Glass jars, metallic spray paint, black pen and printable stencils.
