Halloween craft ideas for the kids – easy decorations

Halloween craft ideas for the kids – easy decorations

Here is just a couple of ideas for some Halloween decorations. I got the idea from some small versions that Thomas made a few years ago. He used a jigsaw and some 1×6 pine boards to cut the shapes out. We screwed them to a stake and set them up in the flowerbed. We now have a larger yard and fence along the front so I though lets make them bigger… was going to use pallets but didn’t have any when I started so I had Philip pick up some treated picket on his way home. This was probably a better option anyway since they will be outside for about a month so they will last for several years.
Hope you enjoy and get some great ideas you could make just about anything you wanted using this method. Ghosts, witch silhouette, skull face, etc, etc.

My gear:
I use the Audio Technica AT2020 XLR because I wanted to be able to record music occasionally. If you do not need that then you could just go straight for the USB version and wouldn’t need the phantom power or extra cables. The external recorder is a must when using a cell phone and will help with audio sync when editing.
