halloween girl cat pumpkinI’m always on the look out for great craft websites and today I’ve found some super sites that are offering great craft ideas and patterns for Halloween.

I love the Tip Junkie site. She has some fantastic tips for all the holidays, not just Halloween.

I love the set up of her site. It’s easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for. The only problem is because there’s so much to see, I could be on it all day.

Another great craft site is Craft Passion. They have a neat free pattern for Ghost Lights with easy to follow show me how photos.

Craft Buds lists several places you can find free printables for Halloween. Plus some super cute Halloween pillow patterns to decorate your home.

For my contribution an easy and fun to do Halloween recipe:

Jell-O Eyeballs

They are squishable treats and actually look like real eyeballs!

Prepare yellow Jello gelatin according to package directions. Pour the mix into ice cube trays with rounded bottoms and refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes. Then press a blueberry down into each cube, so that it touches the bottom of the tray. Continue refrigerating for at least 1-1/2 hours, or until ready to serve the “eyes”.

Is it that time of year already

happy halloween porchI went for a walk around my neighborhood last evening and realized everyone is starting to decorate for Halloween. Is it that time of year already!

When I got back I started snooping around the ‘net to try and find some easy and fun Halloween crafts. I was impressed, there’s a bunch out there and so many willing to share their great ideas.

Take for instance this great blog post that has a super tutorial on the cutest little paper mini pumpkins made from card stock.

If you need to snuggle up on Halloween the Coats and Clark site has a pattern for a Halloween Afghan with spooky black cats, bats and jack-o-lanterns to crochet. The directions are printable, the link is at the bottom of the page.

I love it when my issue of Country Living magazine comes in the mail. This month’s issue was no exception. On their website they share several templates you can download and print to make wicked easy spooky bird silhouettes to cling to your windows.

There are 6 different bird themed Halloween crafts they’ve posted so make sure not to miss the others.

Last but not least, if you have a Michaels store in your area, they’re having some great in-store events throughout October beginning on Saturday, October 8. Plus on their site you can sort the Halloween craft projects by the time it takes to do them, such as 0-30mins, 30mins all the way up to 60+minutes.

I think that’s a great way to find a craft to do in the time you have available. I checked and there are 18 projects in my category of 0-30mins.

So have a ball, especially if you get to share this holiday with young children. It’s so much fun!
