Clever Halloween Crafts from Country Woman Magazine

Trick-or-treat! Time to paint pumpkins, decorate with spooky spiders and skeletons, and whip up some cute, clever costumes—Halloween is almost here!

To celebrate, Country Woman—the #1 Country Lifestyle Magazine for women who live in or long for the country—has put together a collection of creative Halloween crafts you can make with your friends and your kids.


·         Critter Costume for Kids: Is making a Halloween costume for your child always a problem because you’re not a sewing expert? No worries—this year your child will look festive and creative and you won’t even have to pick up a needle! All you’ll need is felt, a glue gun, and ribbons for your child to be the cutest fox, deer or skunk anyone has seen! This quick and easy craft is the perfect costume for this Halloween. For a full list of instructions and materials, please visit: http://www.countrywomanmagazine.com/project/woodland-masks-no-sew-craft/



·         Glitter Pumpkins:  Painting pumpkins with funny faces may be fun, but making a pumpkin glitzy and glamorous is even better! Put the pizazz in your pumpkins with a dusting of fine glitter. On a mantel or your autumn-themed table, these pumpkins will sparkle in sunlight and glisten in candlelight.

·         Candy Corn Goodie Bags: For a Halloween party, a Thanksgiving favor or even “just because it’s fall,” these candy corn goodie bags will delight everyone with their familiar shape and colors. Stuff with wrapped candies and hand out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween, or give them out to guests at a Halloween-themed dinner party! For step-by-step instructions, see:http://www.countrywomanmagazine.com/project/candy-corn-goodie-bags/

·         Halloween Birdhouse Crafts: Forget cheery robins and bluebirds—these vibrant birdhouses invoke instead Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller "The Birds" and Edgar Allan Poe's timeless poem, "The Raven." This DIY Halloween craft project takes these boring birdhouses from garden-cute to Halloween ready! For a full how-to, check out:http://www.countrywomanmagazine.com/project/birdhouse-halloween-crafts/

I think I'm going to give these awesome bird houses a try- they are too adorable not to.
