It’s just over a week until Halloween so here’s a last batch of cute crafts, DIYs and activities to try before spooky season is over!
You know I love pom poms and I can’t believe I missed this Halloween pom pom garland tutorial on the Sanrio blog last year. All the characters look so cute and I really need to make a mummy Pompompurin.
Their Youtube channel also has a really fun recipe for Hello Kitty Pumpkin cereal treats that would impress anyone. If the decorations look a bit too complicated, you could just make them as normal pumpkins instead.
Need somewhere to store your treats? How about this free felt sewing pattern by Ayelet Keshet for a DIY kawaii plush bat pouch that you can use for Halloween and beyond.
Nuvolina Handmade always has the cutest felt sewing patterns and this Halloween Cat looks so sweet in a pumpkin sweater. Or go a little darker and make the Grim Reapurr!
Crochet fans can make something a little more cuddly – Kiki the cat and a little Halloween pumpkin! Download the crochet pattern from DIY Fluffies who also has lots of monster patterns and a free mini monster video tutorial.
You probably don’t have time to knit up these pumpkin socks in time for Halloween but I would quite happily wear them all year round! Download the pattern from StoneKnits and check out their other food and nature themed designs too.
I definitely need to do some spooky origami soon and KOKKO Garden has a series of videos showing you how to make this adorable little witch on a broom. You could hang it up as a decoration or stick it on a card.
Or NiceNo1 has a simpler DIY for 2 kinds of origami bats that you can customise with all kinds of cute faces! These would be really fun to hang in your window.
Fans of polymer clay and Halloween need to check out Chelsey DIY‘s channel as she’s been making lots of cute pumpkin and ghost themed charms. This pumpkin planet looks like a very happy place to live.
And finally, Delia Creates has some quick and easy ideas for adding some spookiness to your outfit on Halloween if you don’t want to deal with a whole costume. There’s free patterns and tutorials for both a Spiderweb Collar and Witch Hat.
