I love Halloween decorations, but I’m not fond of the scary ones. I like the cute and spooky stuff, you know?
Well, when my seven year old came to me with the cutest creation of Frankenstein, I was inspired to create a Halloween tablescape. I love when he inspires my creativity, because he is so creative all the time.
We created our spooky friends out of lunch paper sacks, construction paper, markers, glue and fake succulent plants.
Here are the steps to creating your own:
Brainstorm which spooky friend you want to create. There’s a ghost, Frankenstein, mummy, werewolf, Dracula, jack o’latern , bat, black cat, one-eyed monster, skeleton, etc. Ask your kids for more ideas :)
Select your colored construction paper and trace the paper sack onto your paper and cut it out.
Create your spooky friend with markers, glitter, extra paper or any other craft item you have in your home.
Glue your paper to your lunch sack.
Add a rectangular vase inside your bag or mason jar filled with rocks or something to weigh it down so it will stay open and not fall over.
Finish your creation by adding fake succulent plants from Hobby Lobby as hair.
Add this to your table with pumpkins, checkered black and white placemats and more succulent plants. Now you are now ready for a party!
