Halloween may look a little different this year for a lot of us, so if you’re on a budget or can’t do much else but craft to celebrate the holiday, consider taking advantage of some the free Halloween DIYs and patterns I’ve just discovered!
The Crafter’s Boutique Handmade blog has a great photo tutorial on how to make a cute Halloween pumpkin felt brooch. The pattern is included at the bottom of the post and is simple enough to be perfect for anyone new to sewing!
For a free crochet pattern, Croochet has an adorable amigurumi kitten in a pumpkin costume design that’s too cute to cause a fright!
Miss Tricks Mix Crafts and DIY also has a cute felt Halloween pumpkin cat sewing tutorial. (If you don’t have plastic eyes and nose like those used in the video, you can always embroider them on, or use felt pieces instead!)
Into resin or clay projects? PolymomoTea has a really cute kawaii haunted ghost grave tutorial that uses both. It’s actually a simpler creation so it’d be great for those just starting out with resin/clay hybrid crafting.
One of my personal favorite Halloween paper craft tutorials I’ve seen this year is Simple Paper Made’s paper witch hat. Lots of tiny details make this a more challenging paper project, if that’s what you’re looking for!
And if you’ve already watched all the Sumikko Gurashi Halloween origami videos on Youtube—there are quite a few!—and want even more options, Vilgets has a new tutorial on how to make origami Tapioca in Pumpkin costumes.
Seasonal wreaths are always fun to make, but they can be quite supply-heavy, so if you’re looking for an inexpensive and simple way to make your own, check out Balalaika’s easy spider web paper wreath tutorial.
For something a little smaller, the KOKKO Garden Clay Studio’s mini clay candy wreath tutorial would make you the cutest wreath ever that you could turn into an ornament or hang just about anywhere!
