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!
