Halloween Craft Ideas That Are Easy and Inexpensive

Who doesn’t love a cool DIY Halloween craft?  Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays to decorate for.  I love everything fall.  The colors, smells, hay, and of course pumpkins and gourds.  

Witch Broomstick Halloween Craft

This year I decided to make three witch broomsticks to hang on all of my outside doors.

I got all of my supplies from Christmas Tree Shop and AC Moore.  The total cost to make all three was roughly $30.00.

I purchased these AMAZING cinnamon scented broomsticks at Christmas Tree Shop for $1.99 each.  The smell is phenomenal, assuming you like cinnamon.

Tulle was purchased at AC Moore

 

Steps I Took:

First I cut the withes hats, and the legs with feet from the headbands they were attached to.  

Found the spot where I wanted to glue the hat and legs on, used hot glue, and presto those were on.

I then used my favorite crafting tool ever invented, the hot glue gun, and got to work.

Last step, I then took the green, orange, purple and black tulle and cut into random sized strips.  The length varied from 12″-18″.  I tied them all around the broomstick to make it appear as a skirt around the legs that were attached to the broomstick.

 Aside from shopping for everything, it took about 15 minutes to make.  Easy, very little mess and perfect for a Halloween craft idea to make with the kids.

The boys and I also made one without the witches hat and legs/shoes.  This one might be my favorite because of the simplicity of it.  We only used the tulle around the broomstick therefore giving it a totally different look.

This Halloween craft was easy enough to have the boys help me with it.  They cut the tulle and picked the spots they wanted everything glued to.  I was the only one using the hot glue gun despite Travis pleading with me.  He said in a very loud, angry voice “mom… You know I’m 5 now right?”  Since he has turned 5, he basically knows everything about everything.  Silly me!
