Halloween craft ideas that actually aren't lame

I find that a lot of Halloween decorations are just cliche and cheap (not the good kind of cheap). Which is why I decided to go and find something that is actually worth making! As you know by now, I love making lists, so you better enjoy this one :P

Owls have been *seriously* in fashion this year, and it's a trend I definitely approve of! So why not make some pumpkin owls? They are so easy and super cute. 

If you can make it yourself, I really don't see the point in going out and buying it. This witches hat is the perfect example, and I feel like it has so much more shape and character than anything I've ever seen in the shops! The best part about this is that you can paint it or even drape and staple fabric onto it, in any colour that you want! 


I'm sure that we all remember doing this as kids, and it was fun! So why not do it again now? Easy decorations, sorted.

This is another awesome example of something that you can do yourself without having to go to the shops.

Awesome Crafty Halloween Costume Ideas

No Halloween list would be complete without costume ideas, so here are some amazing ones!

This looks so easy to do. All you do it stuff two gloves and sew them to the hood of a jacket. Easy peasy moose!

Yet another easy costume! All you have to do is sew on ears and a circle on the tummy. So cute!
(No post would be a Crafty Fox post without a photo of a crafty fox)

If you're looking for a Halloween costume for tonight and you have very little time, you've just found it. A transparent umbrella with ribbons tied to it- a jellyfish! 

This has got to be my favourite. What a clever idea! There are full instructions on the page.
