Halloween is a staff favourite here at Viking. We love any excuse to get the scissors, glue and other bits and bobs out. Well, this year we thought we’d share the fun with some of our lovely blogger friends by sending them a Halloween craft box. We filled each box with all sorts of crafty bits and asked them to see what they could come up with. We were super impressed with what we saw, so we just had to share it with you.
We had two different selections of supplies in our craft boxes to help create some creepy creations. Along with the crafty bits, we included a mood board of Pinterest creations that other crafters had made for Halloween in the past, to help get those creative juices flowing.
In one of the boxes we had:
- A selection of various sized jars
- Black marker
- Coloured tissue paper
- Tea lights
- Paint brushes
- Spiders web
- Black paper
And in the other we included:
- Pipe cleaners
- Wiggle eyes
- Sewing thread
- Black yarn
- White marker pen
- Glue stick
- Pumpkin bags
- Coloured tissue paper
Here’s a few picks from the brilliant creations that followed:
Sarah at WhimsicalMumblings.co.uk made these awesome soft pumpkin characters by wrapping coloured wool around a pumpkin-shaped cardboard cut-out.
MeadowDaisy.com’s Rebecca made this fantastic pair of terrifying tea-light lanterns. By pasting tissue paper and black paper silhouettes to a jam jar, adding a bit of a finishing touch with some rustic string and adding a tea-light, these jars were transformed into the perfect centrepiece.
Alison from AnnieBobs.com added a twist to her version of the jam jar lantern by using coloured wool instead of tissue paper. Check out her bat jar!
Rachael from RachaelJess.com created some wicked wreaths using yarn, polystyrene rings and a selection of creepy critters and ghastly ghouls.
Laura and her assistants at DearBearandBeany.com made these delicious yet gruesome spiderpops using pipe cleaners, googly eyes and a spot of glue. Yum/ugh!
Sticking with spiders, Jenny from AccidentalHipsterMum.com made this wicked selection of creepies and spookies. We particularly like the pompom spiders!
So, there you have it – creepy (and easy) Halloween crafts for all the family. We absolutely loved every minute of it – and can’t wait to do it all again next year! Unfortunately, we couldn’t feature everyone’s entries, but we’d like to say a very special thanks to:
