Instead of purchasing your Halloween gifts and decor this year, stay frugal and get a little creative by trying this cute and fun DIY Halloween craft. It’s super simple for you and very entertaining for the kids. Don’t be afraid to get a little messy, either. That’s where the real fun is. All you need is a couple of items, most of which you can probably find around your house.
- Black construction paper
- Black permanent marker
- White paint
- White crayon
Now, let’s get crafting!
Step 1. Apply a layer of white paint to the bottom of your child’s foot.
Step 2. Have your kiddo step on the black paper and then remove his or her foot carefully (Hint: Use the newspaper to place your foot after creating your print.) Leave the footprint to dry.
Step 3. Draw a ghost like shape around the foot with a white crayon. Then, using your black permanent mark, draw a face on the spooky fellow.
Step 4. Leave a little room around the white crayon and cut the figure out. Apply tape to the back of your ghost art and hang it anywhere for decoration.
This homemade ghost works well as a Halloween decoration or a gift for the grandparents. Good luck and enjoy the wonderful festivities that are associated with this craft. Remember, if it looks a little silly, that just adds to the spookiness of your Halloween craft.
