Halloween School Craft #2

I did a few more crafts with Natalie's first grade class this year for halloween. Here are the instructions to make two simple and very quick crafts.

Eyeball Necklaces

Package before hand in a baggie:

foam eyeball (skull or whatever else you can find a lot of)


jumpring attached to a jewelry pick(if you have older children you can let them attach the jump ring)


To make:

1.) push jewelry pick into foam shape(in this case eyeball)

2.) optional...glue into place and let dry

3.) place string through the jump ring

4.) place around neck and tie

5.) enjoy sporting around your new halloween necklace

Witch Pencils

Package before hand in a baggie for each child(you don't have to do this but it makes it a lot quicker):

1 pencil

1 piece of felt approx 6 inches long and 3 inchs wide(I used brown and black)

rubber band

piece of string or ribbon

To make:

1.) cut felt piece to look like a fringe. This will be the broom strands.

2.) wrap fringed felt around end of pencil with eraser

3.) secure with rubber band

4.) tie ribbon or string around the rubber band to hide

5.) sharpen and use

I hope you can use these ideas. Happy Halloween
