looking for last minute costumes or last minute crafts, you've come to
the right place! Halloween is already HERE so hurry up and get started
on these last minute Halloween ideas!
Paper bag costumes
Create a hula
skirt, or a Native American or Explorer vest out of a brown paper bag.
That makes the costumes easy AND free. Let the kids decorate it with
paint or even permanent markers.
Be a sandwich
sign, a paper doll, or even a robot – decorate white posterboard with
Sharpies and you're good to go. Get creative!
Soda bottle crafts
Spray paint soda bottles black and add wings to make bats. Cut out
the bottom and make 2 liter bottles into ghosts. The possibilities are
endless with plastic bottles! Try milk jugs, too.
Mix mini candy bars in with brownie mix for some fancy desserts that
are easy to make. Cover with icing and crushed oreos for an extra
special treat. Add milano cookies to make it a graveyard.
Grab some overalls and stuff them with hay. Place them in a chair
with a pumpkin on top for the head. Add a hat and some facial features
and you have an inexpensive scarecrow!
Grab some paint stirrers from Home Depot and cut them into a point.
Stab them into the ground and put writing on them. Make an easy
tombstone with cardboard or foam board.
