Halloween-themed mason jars
What is a fun Halloween art project without a mason jar? These jars can be used in many different ways. A painted jar coupled with a drinking straw can bring extra festivity to a cocktail or punch. They can also be used to store treats and snacks, or you can serve dessert in it. It can also be used as an item for interior decoration. Fill a jar with plastic spiders, acorns, and toy skulls to decorate your fireplace, coffee table, or living room. It is very simple to make such a multifunctional mason jar decoration: just paint the jar with acrylic paints or markers.
Halloween Candle Jar
Mason Jar is not the only one jar that can be an interesting Halloween craft. Simple glass jars can become interesting Halloween art crafts as well. They can be brought back to life by transforming into original lanterns or painted vases. Take a simple glass jar, tint its surface with acrylic paints in one color. After it's dry, use the markers to draw a creepy Halloween monster, spiders, witches or other scary characters. Excellent, all that remains is to put a candle, LED lamp or a bouquet of dead flowers inside!
Decorative ceramic tableware
Since a festive table is an integral part of any holiday, it is imperative to think over the decorations for the dining room in advance. How can you make an original table setting? Create a composition of autumn leaves and fruits, use a black tablecloth, and use a pumpkin as a centerpiece. Last but not least, buy some art-safe dishes. A ceramic plate set or tea set is a great canvas for your creativity and this Halloween art idea! Paint the dishes with Artistro acrylic markers, and when dry, bake them in the oven for fixing.
Spooky rock painting
What do you think the the most quintessential attribute of Halloween is? The first thought that probably comes to mind is pumpkins — but we think you would be wrong! For us here at Artistro, the most important element of the holiday is a spooky atmosphere. Therefore, scary decorations are a must. And what could be scarier than turning kindness rocks into “horror rocks”?
How can you make these? Collect stones, preferably of an irregular and ugly shape, and wash and dry them. Then you can start creating an entire army of your own monsters! Add scary lettering using Gothic, jagged, or “dripping” (like blood) fonts for the final touches to these simple Halloween crafts. When the drawings are ready and the paint is completely dry, use these spooky rock paintings as paperweights, place settings, or miscellaneous decorations.
Fun Halloween Art Projects for Kids
No one looks forward to Halloween more than kids. To please your children not only with delicious sweets, but also with the joy of the pre-holiday bustle, here are some enchanting Halloween craft activities!
Puppet art project for Halloween
Since Halloween is a celebration of scary stories and monsters, make Frankenstein and Dracula toys. After all, it would be unforgivable not to invite the most monstrous guests to this holiday. To create such crafts, supplies needed include: paper, markers, scissors, glue, felt, and a little creativity. You can have fun and spend time with your family while preparing such festive decorations. Plus, these crafts will keep your kids entertained after Halloween.
Paper Halloween art projects
In addition to puppets, there are many other interesting paper Halloween art projects you can create. Scissors and paper pumpkin is a great way to let kids practice their “carving” skills before they are old enough to carve a real pumpkin. Baba Yaga and other scary fairytale characters are also perfect for children's games or nursery decor. Paper bats will perfectly decorate not only the house inside, but also outside. Hang crafts on a tree or front door to guard your home. Paper ghost finger puppets are a fun craft for little ones. You can make these with simple stationery you most likely already have on hand. Even the smallest kids can draw with fingers. Such a craft can be used not only for games, but also to decorate drinks with straws in an original way.
