top 10 Halloween crafts

I don’t do scary.  My version of Halloween is all cutesy with purples, greens, oranges, silly monsters, and fun pumpkins.  So if you are cool with the not so scary side of Halloween, you will enjoy these popular projects!

Halloween DIY Mummy Wreath

How about something colorful for your door?  I created a cute Halloween DIY Mummy Wreath using recycled paper towel tubes and a gourd.  My new mummy’s name is Monty. Ever since my Paisley Chicken project, I’ve had a fondness for gourd crafts.  With quite a few stored in my closet, I thought it was about time I created something for Halloween.  This project is easy to make, takes very little time, and makes a cute welcome wreath for your door.

Scented Jack O Lantern Tea Lights

Create a whole mess of Jack O Lantern Tea Lights with Navel Oranges!  Scented with allspice, they make the whole house smell wonderful!  I found a way to combine the Halloween “scary-ness” with the natural scents of oranges and spices.

Halloween Hooty Owl No-Sew “Quilted” Wall Art

I created these cute Halloween Hooty Owls using some bright Halloween fabrics and FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam.  It has a quilted look, but involves no sewing!  Perfect for brightening up your house for the holidays, these cute owls are my version of a non-scary Halloween.

Witchy-Poo Votives 

These cute little Witchy-Poos are made from recycled soda cans.  Their votives are recycled pickle jars.  We are talking a lot of cute here for very little money.  This project is totally up my alley!

You may have seen Witchy-Poo before.  She was one of my original projects back in 2010 when the Sitcom was young.  At that time, I made her into a fun door decoration!

Monster Shelf and Potholders

When the nice folks at RIT Dye sent me a box of their liquid dyes to try out, I’m betting they never expected a shelf full of monsters.  But that’s just kind of the way we roll around here at The Sitcom.

jeweled pumpkin for halloween

Jeweled Pumpkin

The daughter and I wanted to carve pumpkins, and of course we wanted to make ours a bit different. Because that’s the way my family rolls. You certainly can’t expect the norm from us. I have been playing around with the idea of a “jeweled pumpkin” and my daughter wanted to make something to cheer up her hubby who is currently serving in the military.

halloween scratch offs

Halloween Scratch-offs

My sister throws a huge party every year, and she is always looking for ideas.  Me, I’m not a fan of scary.  I usually go with cute for Halloween with projects like my Jar O Monsters, and my Mummy Wreath.  So, instead of scariness, I came up with a cute scratch off idea.

Marvin the Mummy and Friends

I found these blocks at the major discount price of fifty cents each at the craft store some time ago. There were only three, and I had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with them, but at that price I couldn’t afford not to buy them. So they have been sitting patiently waiting in my craft closet for inspiration to strike. And it finally did.  This is my very first toilet paper tube project!

Candied Pumpkin Seeds2

Candied Pumpkin Seeds

You could just roast them and eat them and be all healthy and all.  Most folks do that.  But we are talking chez Sitcom here.  We specialize in taking healthy and making it sugary and tasty.  Because that is the way we roll.  So I grabbed my brown sugar and made my version of candied pumpkin seeds.  Because really, somebody had to do it.

Jar O’ Monsters

Inspired by the hilarious prequel to Monsters, Inc., I decided to create a Jar O’ Monsters emulating some of the wonderful characters from the movie! This project just required some wooden spoons, paint and glass cabochons for eyes!
