Halloween characters made with streamers

Halloween crafts with streamers diyI had to share my easy and cheap Halloween craft I did the other night with my children. We all have seen the adorable Halloween crafts made from wood all over Pinterest. Well the other night I was cleaning out my cabinets and I thought these boxes would work perfect for my characters. Literally all you do is wrap your boxes with streamers, decorate up and your done in minutes. Your children will have a blast making these.

Then I wrapped my white streamers over and over the box using double sided tape. For the eyes you can use goggly eyes, I came across this package at Dollar Tree that had stickers for Halloween characters. We had plenty of stickers left over they could still decorate their paper character. On the side of the box I glued this cute little spider.

Halloween Dollar Tree Craft

EKK! I know, I know, Halloween in August boooo! I will say I love Halloween and love seeing stores get their new Halloween merchandise in! The reason I am posting this now is because on my last trip to Dollar Tree I came across these little porcelain haunted houses. They are so cute! They have a whole collection from lighthouses to graveyards to zombies! I didn’t go crazy and buy all of them just yet, but I hope to add to my collection! So yes in August Dollar Tree has these cute little haunted houses. In case you wanted them – go now and snag them up!

Here is how they come, they’re cute the way they are but I thought they would look better painted with some black acrylic gloss paint. Plus they will match my Halloween Décor better.

I thought about spraying them with black glitter also, but I loved how they looked! Maybe when I add to my collection I will do some with glitter! If you guys love Halloween – so far I have seen the most Halloween Merchandise at Ac Moore. Hobby Lobby has some and JoAnn’s had very little.
