Halloween Crafts.How to make a charming, but creepy crafts with a child for Halloween? The tradition of celebrating Halloween came to our country from English-speaking countries, where this day has been revered especially since pagan times. Its name comes from the abbreviation of the English phrase, which literally sounded like “the evening of all saints” will arouse the interest of every child, because not every day they have the opportunity to immerse themselves in an atmosphere of witchcraft and magic, believe in the existence of evil spirits and try on the most unusual fantastic creatures.

Halloween crafts

Initially, Halloween was celebrated as a holiday, signifying the end of summer, the harvest and the onset of autumn. Since all nature was dying at this time, great importance was attached to the theme of death, the power of darkness and evil forces. Subsequently, their traditions of celebrating Halloween, based largely on folklore, appeared. The main attributes of Halloween are considered to be the head, cut out of pumpkin, and bats.

A bat can be made from a disposable black plate.If there is no such plate, then it is possible to pre-paint an ordinary plate with black paint. We glue the wings to the plate on the back side. Glue the mouth and eyes to the center of the plate.

Considering that the celebration begins in the dark, luminous objects look especially impressive. The easiest way to create themed items is paper crafts that do not require special skills, are low-cost, but no less effective than other decorations for the holiday. With a small child, cute owls, cats and bats can be made out of paper. To do this, you need to prepare in advance:

  1. Thick paper (album sheets, packing paper (wrapping), drawing paper).
  2. Scissors.
  3. Glue (PVA, stationery or ordinary glue stick).
  4. Markers.
  5. Paints and brushes of different sizes. Brighter colors are painted with acrylic paint.
  6. Colored paper.
  7. Non-slip glasses or other water tank.
  8. A bright, stable flashlight with a low- / li>

The basis of the work is the creation of irregular cones: sheets of paper of various widths and lengths are folded in such a way that the resulting tube expands downwards.The edges are well lubricated with glue, pressed against each other and dried.

After the glue is dry, the cone is turned upside down with a wide base. The walls of the base are folded inside the cone - first one half of the walls, then, on top of it, the other. The resulting figure resembles a bag or pillow with protruding corners. Usually it holds its shape well, but you can put a little glue on the inside of the upper wall of the base.
