It’s only a week until Halloween but that’s still plenty time to do some cute crafting. All these projects are small or easy enough to finish in a weekend so get your supplies together, make a movie or music playlist and enjoy some spooky craft time.
You won’t have time to make the whole set of Not-So-Spooky felt ornaments from Wild Olive before Halloween but you can start with your favourites and carry on during the Felt Ornament Stitchalong next month. Mollie also has a matching Not-So-Spooky cross stitch pattern if you have more time.
If you’re in the US, you can order one of the Hello Kitty Halloween baking kits at Sanrio (US) and get it in time for the weekend. The cookie kit looks fairly complicated but this cupcake party set should be easy enough for anyone to try. It comes with spooky-themed cupcake liners, baking cups and toppers, plus 4 recipes for cupcakes and frosting.
Whether you’re a beginner crocheter or more experienced, you should be able to finish one of the DIY Fluffies free amigurumi tutorials in a weekend. Mikey the Bat is adorable and there’s also a scary Halloween pumpkin.
These origami jack-o-lantern decorations from tatsukuriorigami are such a cute idea! I love the tiny ghosts but also that there’s space for a message so they’d also be great for cards or gift tags. There’s also separate tutorials for just the ghosts or lollipops.
Raid the recycling and make some of the Halloween paper tube crafts at Hello Wonderful. If you don’t have any spare, you can make tubes with card as well. These cute witches are my favourite but there’s also cats, owls, bats and more.
Cute Polish has come up with loads of cute Halloween nail art designs to choose from, with ideas for all skill levels. They’re great for finishing off your costume or just adding a little fun when you’re at work or school next Tuesday.
If these all still feel like too big a project to tackle, you can at least relax for a while and do some colouring. Sugarhai has shared 2 free colouring pages to download and there’s another one coming before Halloween too.
Don’t forget to check out our Halloween Crafts section for loads more ideas including our own original tutorials.
