Countdown to Halloween

There’s 36 more days until Halloween!  Sure, Trick-or-Treating is mostly for younger kids, but Halloween is also the time for haunted houses and hayrides, costume parties, parades and dances.  Now is the time to plan and make costumes and decorations. 

Perfect for parties and dances, glitter pumpkins add some glamor to your decorations.  You can use real or fake pumpkins.

  • Costumes

Make your costume out of duct tape!  The library has a lot of  books on how to make halloween costumes

  • Duct Tape Mummy Pumpkin

No carving needed!  This Mummy Pumpkin is on page 33 of Stick or Treat by Patti Wallenfang.  Other duct tape pumpkins include the Eyeball pumpkin, the Witch pumpkin, The Rollin’ Pumpkin, the Diva Pumpkin, and  the De-bone-aire Pumpkin.

For more decorating ideas, check out Creative Costumes and Halloween Decor:  50 Projects to Sew and Craft.  Learn how to carve and decorate pumpkins and squashes, make a lighted swag, make a harvest wreath, make creepy mummy hands and more.

Let’s keep sharing ideas until the big day!
