Nina Lewis of Grandma Ideas shows us how to make three super easy, inexpensive, and fun Halloween crafts.


Get a pumpkin from the Dollar Store. Paint it black. Glue on googly eyes. Paint on a mouth. Glue on wings cut out of craft foam.

  • You can either use acrylic or spray paint.
  • You can use colored googly eyes or black ones.
  • I recommend a white Sharpie pen to paint on the mouth because it`s like a pencil and it`s easier for young kids than acrylic paint


Paint a terra cotta pot black and turn it upside down. Glue on some fun googly eyes and paint on a mouth. Glue on pipe cleaners for legs.

  • You can either use acrylic paint or spray paint.
  • Again, use a white Sharpie painting pen.


Get an empty can and cover it with felt. You can either use googly eyes or cut facial features into the felt for the face.

  • Use an interesting size of a can if possible.
  • Can also use card stock paper or scrapbook paper to cover the can.
  • Can also use felt or paper for facial features.

All of the crafts don't take a lot of preparation time so busy grandma's or mother's can enjoy a quick, easy, and fun craft with their little ones this Halloween.
