The chill of autumn signals a time for cozy indoor crafting and imaginative endeavors! Delve into this article to find ten captivating Halloween projects that will fuel your creativity and set the perfect spooky tone.
Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine because, well… candy. It also offers the opportunity to make some playfully macabre creative projects (while you eat the candy)! Today’s blog post outlines ten delightful Halloween paper projects on the TPK site. Make your favorite this week, accompanied by a toothsome warm brew and some candy corn.
You needn’t be frightened at the prospect of spending hours to illustrate this creepy mail art. It’s a free printable! To enhance the vintage vibe, use sepia Kaitlin Style calligraphy to write the recipient’s address on the right.
Use the text from your favorite Halloween-esque story or poem to make this verbose skull! I chose Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, but portions of Shakespeare plays or works by Edgar Allen Poe would be great, too.
You don’t have to be a talented illustrator to create this project! The tutorial provides a PDF file that you can print out on black cardstock. You’ll be able to faintly see the printer ink on the cardstock, and you can trace over it with a white pen or white ink.
Ready to become the trick-or-treating destination? Assemble several of these packets, fill them with candy, and hand them out for Halloween! (Note that these packets are part of a paid set. You can find a free Halloween goody packet by clicking here.)
In this envelope art, Dracula quietly observes from his castle on a crumbling cliff as a witch flies and bats roam about. Using iron gall ink for this project will give the illustrations a translucent, spooky quality!
Like the Flourish Skull Artwork, this hissing cat is straight out of the Not Your Average Calligraphy Drills: Spooky Edition packet. Add some orange accents and Flytrap lettering, and you’ve got the perfect Halloween envelope. Find a detailed tutorial by clicking the button below!
I hope that you enjoy creating at least one of these ten Halloween paper projects! They offer the opportunity to set aside some time for creativity and make someone’s day (including your own) with holiday greetings.
Thanks very much for reading, and I hope you’re having a lovely autumn.
