Happy Halloween from all of us here in the Crafts Department!
If you're doing some last-minute preparation for trick or treaters tonight (or perhaps a Halloween party tonight or this weekend?), visit our Halloween galleries, chock-full of ideas to get you ready for a festive evening. Below are some of my picks for quick Halloween crafts, decorations and treats.
Pumpkin Balloons are a fun addition to your treats table, and are super easy to make (balloons + permanent marker, that's it!):
This skull potato stamp is made using a carved potato half and is great for treat bags, napkins, even t-shirts:
Floating Paper-Mache Ghosts are a great last-minute addition to your front yard (and are sure to spook trick or treaters!):
I love the crispy candy corn treats below - the vibrant color is achieved with a bit of citrus zest:
If you're hosting a party, this pumpkin dart game is easy to pull off:
Blake's sweet pumpkin treat packaging is great for this year's party favor:
...as are these Goody Witches - which only require a bit of cellophane and black paper to make:
Happy, happy Halloween!
