First cut a circle from the sheet and then cut half of the circle. With one semi-circle, you can make one cone. Make this cone and glue it. Now, cut out another big circle and stick the cone to this circle and your witch hat is ready.
Bat-shaped Wall Hangings: Bat-shaped wall hangings is another easy to make Halloween craft. All you need to do is to get a thin cardboard sheet and cut out bat wings out of it.

Pet Bottle Broomstick: Here’s another broomstick craft idea for Halloween. For this craft, you’ll need a large pet bottle, preferably green and stick that can fit into the mouth of the bottle. Take the bottle and cut the bottom portion. Now, cut the bottle vertically up until 1-2 inches from the neck. This is resemble a broom. Now, fit the stick into the mouth of the bottle and nail it securely. Now, you have a fancy pet bottle broomstick craft for this Halloween.
Cardboard strips Jack’o Lantern: How can we miss the mascot of Halloween, Jack’o Lantern? Here’s one creative way to make Jack’O Lantern, if you really cant find a pumpkin. All you need to do is to find a cardboard sheet and cut 8 long strips out of it. Now first, arrange all the strips as though they form spokes of a bicycle. Staple them on one end and bend each of the strip slightly so that it forms a semi-circle shape. Now staple the other end as well and you can see a pumpkin shape forming. Add detailing such as the signature eyes and mouth to Jack’o.
Paper Bag Bat: If you have useless or old paper bags lying around in your home, perhaps now is the best time to use them. For this craft you’ll need few paper bags, some more paper, black color and then wobbly eyes. Stick a pair of wobbly eyes onto the paper bag’s opening and also glue some white paper teeth. Now, cut out some bat wings from the paper and glue to either side of the bag and your paper bag bat is ready. Make sure that you paint the bag and the wings, except for the teeth in black color and let it dry for at least 12 hours.
Spider Web: Spider is another Halloween creature which is very famous. This craft is for toddlers and kids. For this craft, take paper plates, color them in various colors. With adult help, make holes at various places on the plate. Now, make a hand print that looks like a spider and run a thread through those holes and the spider craft is ready.
