Craft Roundup: Halloween Decor, Necklace, Garland, More

Halloween decorating means different things to different people. Some folks love scary monsters and shaky skeletons. Others prefer a more whimsical approach. How do you like to decorate? For me, I like to hunt for vintage decorations and give them a second life in our house. This week’s roundup is part modern, part hat-tip to the past – thanks to familiar crafting mediums such as shrinkable plastic and elegant gold leaf.

 


Witch Hat Decor

When thinking of your Halloween decorations, think beyond orange and black! Emily from The Benson Street created these colorful witch hat decorations and used bright colors like purple and lime green to achieve her Halloween look.

 


DIY Halloween Shrink Necklace

Want a one-of-a-kind necklace for your child to wear to her Halloween party? Or for you to wear to work? Take a cue from My Paper Crane and create this vintage-inspired “shrinky” necklace! Why not make a charm bracelet or pin to go with it, too?

 


DIY Gold Leaf Halloween Postcards

I wouldn’t recommend using gold leaf with younger crafters, but for older kids, this technique is a lot of fun and produces stunning results. Lovely Indeed pairs a glue pen and gold leaf to create these chic Halloween postcards.

 


Glow-in-the-Dark Garlands

Design Mom poses an interesting question: Your handmade paper garland looks awesome during the day, but what does it look like at night in the dark? It’s an easy problem to fix – paint a strand with some glow-in-the-dark paint!
