Halloween Crafts

Mini Banner

Can you believe it’s almost time for the spookiest night of the year?! It’s Halloween and all the monsters, ghosts, ghouls and creatures of the night are coming out to join us! To welcome them and your guests to the party, how about a simple custom banner just for you.

Materials:

2 Inch Punch

3.5 Inch Scalloped Punch

Twine/Rope

Cardstock Paper (Black and White)

Single Hole Punch

ZebraPen ClickArt Pens

Stick on googly eyes

Instructions:

First, we’ll gather up all our supplies. I like to use a 2 inch punch for my white cardstock paper and I cut it out three times. You can also use scissors to cut some round paper as well.

I wanted it to really pop, so I decided to also do three punches from a 3.5 inch scalloped punch on black cardboard paper. Then, to give it a little halloween monster flare, I stuck some googly eyes to the top and glued the white cardstock cutout to the black cardstock cutout. What cute little monsters for your banner!

To make these little monsters banner friendly, use your one hole punch to punch a hole at the very top of the black cardstock where you want your rope or twine to go through.

Next, we’re going to decorate the banner with some ZebraPen Clickart pens. These are absolutely perfect because they have a bullet tip, they are retractable, and they give a great vibrant POP to the banner. I’m going with “BOO” on the banner and added a couple little gold tassels too.

After adding the main letters, I went back in with another color and added a shadow to each letter. This just gives it a little extra something. I love how it turned out!

Take some twine or ribbon, and you can use glue dots to keep them in place if you are so inclined. 

Put it all together and it makes the perfect background for your table setting or lay it on the table for a little flair!

To finish off your amazing Halloween cupcakes, you’ll need a cupcake topper! Don’t worry – you don’t need any fancy tools for this. Just grab your ZebraPen Clickart Pens, some white cardstock, a 2 inch punch and some sticks!

ZebraPen Clickart Pens

ZebraPen Brush Pen

2 inch Punch

White Cardstock

Topper Sticks

Glue/Tape

Instructions:

Gather up your supplies and let’s get started! First, we’re going to need to use the 2 inch punch to cut circles for each cupcake. You can also just use scissors for this – no need for fancy tools!

Grab those white cardstock cutout circles and decorate for Halloween fun! I’m going with a simple design and using my ZebraPen Clickart pens to decorate. I did some straight lines as a background and I’m using my ZebraPen Brush Pen to write the word “treat”. This way people will know that at least the cupcakes are solidly in the treat category – no tricks involved!

Once you have your designs, get some craft glue or tape to attach the toppers to the sticks. I got some official topper sticks but you can also use toothpicks or popsicle sticks.

All that’s left is putting the toppers in each cupcake and displaying your masterpiece! I love how they turned out with the topper and the wraps to match! The ZebraPen Clickart pens make it so easy!

Who doesn’t love a good cupcake at Halloween?! You can make your own custom cupcake wraps with just a couple items from around the house and some ZebraPen Clickart pens!

Materials:

Cupcake Wrapper Template 

Cardstock Paper

Scissors

ZebraPen Clickart Pens

ZebraPen Brush Pen 

Instructions:

First, you’ll need a cupcake wrapper template. There are so many free ones on Pinterest and you can pick whatever shape works best for you. I chose a simple ruffle top and cut them out with scissors. You can also find these templates in SVG format and cut them out on your Cricut or Silhouette machine.

Once you have them cut out, you can sketch your cupcake wrapper doodles in pencil and then start filling them in with bright pops of color from the ZebraPen Clickart pens. These pens are great because they don’t smear, they dry super quickly, and there are so many colors available! I also love using the ZebraPen brush pen because you can add some simple calligraphy while you’re decorating.

Once you get them decorated, secure them in the back to prep for cupcakes.

Go crazy with your Halloween doodles and you can have awesome cupcake wrappers custom made just for your party!

Favor Tags

Materials:

Small favor bags

Cardstock paper (in color of your choice)

Single Hole Punch

Scissors

Twine/string/yarn/ribbon 

ZebraPen Brush Pen

ZebraPen Clickart Pens

Instructions:

Any Halloween party needs some cute favor bags! No, you can’t keep all that candy for yourself (tempting though). Grab your favorite candies and a pre-made favor bag and let’s make a custom tag just for your guests.

I cut out a small rectangle for my favor tag here but feel free to cut any shape you like. I’m just using scissors but you can also use your Cricut or Silhouette to cut out a more complicated shape.

Then I took my ZebraPen Brush pen and wrote out the words “Happy Halloween”. I love the brush pen because it’s super easy to control and the tip is just the perfect amount of flexible. Next, I grabbed my ZebraPen Clickart pens to add some pops of color.

Once you have the tag decorated the way you want, use the single hole punch to punch a hole in the corner of the rectangle. Use your ribbon or twine to attach it to the favor bag and you’re all set! The cutest little gifts for all your party guests!
