From garbage to Halloween crafts!


Halloween at the nursing care centre of Ineke van der Linde. In the next 4 craft projects you can get an idea for Halloween. Most of the material is recycled, so that's immediately low-budget and also durable. Below these ideas, there is some inspiration material for Halloween!


1. The pumpkins are simply old newspapers folded into a large clot (little in the shape of a pumpkin) and fastened with painting tape. Idea of Ineke himself!

This idea in terms of witches is inspired by Crocobranch.


2. The scarecrow was redrawn by me in large from a mold (AH-farm mini) on a thicker cardboard and pre-punched. Children from 5 years old can already finish, paint and dress it. A dandelion on the hat. Dried corn leaves on the stand. This one is dressed by a 5-year-old girl.


3. The ghost of a jar is not new, but nice and easy. Old bandage and 2 bandage cramps, wiggle eyes and marker. The other is from a milk canister (2 ltr), plastic forks and spoons and the hat is a plastic cap.


4. The witch at the door: hat=point twisted from A4 sheet, stuck on one edge. Wraps of hair = half A4 in length fold in half and cut 1 half strings until fold and stick to hat. Coat=garbage bag under her. Armenia=kitchen roll. Hand=Sheet of paper and wrist paste in kitchen roll. Legs = kitchen roll with old socks.

The broom is a half-pringle can (wrapped with a colored sheet of paper). In it is a strip of solid brown cardboard (banana box paper) where strips are first cut into and then rolled into it.

This is made with a girl who turns 7 this month and is allowed to throw a Halloween party. A bottle that gets complicated with bandage gauze.. a real mummy you get soon, with nice tentacles made of chenille thread!

Contribution by Sonja Voolstra-Hayisma host parent:

She made cute Halloween crafts with the kids at her shelter. The first is a witch, which is made of an egg carton and paper. The 2nd is made of black paper on which a drawing is made, which is also cut out {or from pricks} Behind it is glued kite paper. You can hang it in front of the window, or even use it to make a lantern! The 3rd picture is a spider with a lot of eyes. Made of an eggbox part with chenille threads underneath!

Nice Halloween contribution from guest parent Yvonne Yanira Valenzuela Bello.
