If you enjoyed my Wishing Witch project, here's a few more ideas as to what you can make for Halloween with basic craft items you may already have on hand.  All the projects shown here were originally published in magazines nearly 20 years ago and the directions/patterns are no longer available but with the character project ideas are timeless.  Hope you enjoy...and don't forget to share this link!

This Candy Holder was made with painted flower pots.  The cape can also be made with a black plastic table covering or black felt.

This project is just as easy as can be...just sponge paint a canning jar and add the face with a black permanent marker if you don't want to hand paint the details.
My Peek-A-Boo Pumpkin character pattern can be found in Annie Lang's Scarecrows in the Pumpkin Patch line art design book and you can download the pdf from my Annie Things Possible website!  

These pumpkin characters were painted on gourds, but you can apply the same idea to paint pumpkins that have been hollowed out and then use them as serving dish holders! 

Super easy and fun for kids to make! If you don't have felt on hand, you can use heavy cardstock or posterboard.

This pretty autumn plaque decoration project has been around LONG before I sent it off to a publisher as a magazine project submission.  Like I said...some ideas are simply timeless! Happy Autumn Crafting
