Easy Halloween Crafts

My daughter is always saying she is bored. So we ripped up some fabric today and started on some halloween crafts. We started with styrofoam bases for the mummy balls and the candy corn cones. We ripped up some fabric and started wrapping it around. I love crafts that don't have to look just right. Here's how we did it:

For the mummy balls we used:

round styrofoam balls

Muslin Fabric

small piece of Black Fabric



Googly Eyes

tape a piece of small black fabric on ball

start wrapping muslin strips around ball

tuck in end of fabric to finish
glue on googly eyes


Project time: 20 minutes for 5 balls

Candy Corn Cones

What you need:

Orange Fabric Strips

Yellow Fabric Strips

White Fabric Strips

Cones in various sizes

Rip pieces of fabric in approx 1 inch strips

Start at the bottom of cone and wrap the orange fabric

Overlap next layer of yellow fabric and then white fabric, tuck end of white fabric under


Project time: 10 to 20 minutes for 3 cones

Give it a try. It's quick, easy, and cute and that's my kind of craft.
