Halloween is such a fun time of year to watch Horror movies, create Spooky snacks and decorate your house! Sometimes however, decorating can be time consuming, costly and so wasteful! That is why we have pulled together this blog, full of decorating ideas that can be done quickly, easily and at a very low cost. Most importantly too, each hack is low waste and fun for all the family!
Now let's get crafting!...
First up we have a Candy Coffin - the perfect companion to any decorative Halloween table or ornament.
These cute little coffins are incredibly easy to create. All you need is a coffin template that is easily found online, card, scissors, glue, pencil, pen, ruler and of course.... HALLOWEEN SWEETS! To create this particular model, we used an Artgecko PRO Toned Sketch Pad in a tanned shade as we felt these would be the ideal shade for a coffin.
We created this on our socials. Take a look at the video here and learn how to create this SPOOKTACULAR creation!!
Next is a paper crafted Ghost Garland - the speediest Halloween craft of them all, that are easy and super fun!
These adorable very spooky additions for your wall, door, mantle piece and even more really are the easiest to create out of all of these crafts. On top of that, you can personalise them all you want! To create them, we used a PRO Gecko Toned Sketch Pad in Grey because they hold together well and have the perfect shade!
To make them, you need your paper of choice, a pencil, pen, some scissors and tape for hanging up! Find the video as to how we made them here! Remember, you don't need to make specifically ghost shapes, you can create whatever you fancy!
Last up are some Wire Spiders, made from the wire of an Artgecko Sketchbook - great for ornaments, decorations and fun craft activities!
These fun little things can be tricky and maybe not for smaller hands due to how hard it can be to bend, but are really fun to make! To create them, you do not even need anything other than an Artgecko Sketchbook and we think are ideal for when you are finished with your sketchbook and still want to create something!
Follow this video to see how to remove the wire safely and get creating as you please!
Just a reminder with this particular craft activity, mind your fingers, arms and especially your eyes. The wire can be a little stiff and may move around. We recommend safety glasses when creating!
Well there you go! Three different craft activities that keep your costs down, are really fun to make and look great for decorating your house, work space, or wherever else you fancy! If you have a go at creating any of these, make sure to share and tag us on Instagram, Facebook, Tik Tok, Pinterest and YouTube!
