1. Head in a Jar
This one is my personal favorite. It is so realistic its spooky! This will be hubby’s job as he has a knowledge of Photoshop and we will use on of our kids photos to do it! But if you do not have the know how there is a head already completed that you can use with full instructions at Instructables.
2. Shrunken head
My kids just love this one! We have done this a number of times and they always turn out different which is part of the fun. We tend to use pepper corns for the eyes and uncooked rice for the teeth.
Here is one from 2015 that we put on our facebook page it looks a little dark as our little man got impatient and turned the oven up:

Simply grab an apple, carve the eyes and mouth, raisins/currants for the eyeballs, long grain rice for the teeth and leave in a warm dry place. You can help the process along by placing it in the oven for a day at 120 Fahrenheit.
3. Window Silhouettes
via Who Arted
We love these decorations for windows that you will have covered. I will be doing some of these myself. We will also be showing you how to decorate your windows with your Crafty Croc markers the Halloween next week. So order a pack now in preparation.

This skeleton craft is great for kids of all ages. The little ones just love it as it doesn’t require much adult input if you premake the skull it is just a matter of gluing the q-tips and head in place an you have your very own skeleton.
5. Spider webs
Via Consumer Crafts
Again we love this for its simplicity, so the kids can create their own masterpiece. A little preparation to make sure you have the right materials and a few plastic spiders and your good to go. You can see the full set of instructions at Consumer Crafts.
Last but not least what is Halloween without a few bats! These are the cutest bats around and so simple to make. You can get full instructions as well ad a downloadable template at HGTV.
