Halloween Crafts: Spooky Shadow Puppets!

Monday, October 18th, 2010

I came across this wonderful how-to while reading The Storque, Etsy’s handmade blog and thought to myself.. that’s a perfect craft to do for Halloween! Who wouldn’t want to play with these awesomely spooktacular puppets during a Halloween party? Turn all the lights off and have a fun and frightful time as partygoers wave these puppets around.

The idea was conjured up by the talented crankbunny (her etsy shop) and the instructions on how to create your very own shadow puppets are located here. There are two templates you can download and use, but you can also come up with your very own designs! Just follow the instructions and you’ll have an army of these badboys in no time!

We’ve also embedded the video how-to as well for your viewing pleasure!

Green Halloween® is a nationwide non-profit initiative started by mother-daughter team Corey Colwell-Lipson and Lynn Colwell. In 2010, Green Halloween became a program of EcoMom® Alliance and has events in cities across the U.S.

So cute, I just had to show you…

I just love handmade treasures. Check out this adorable hand-knit rattle set from Yellow Label Kids! Of course, many more wonderful Halloween gifts, decor and costume-items can be found on, where artists (many of whom are “stay at home” moms and dads), can feature their talents and creative vision.

If you like what you see, take the Handmade Pledge for all of your holidays!

Of course, if you’re a crafter yourself, show us your artistry. We’d love to highlight you on our site.
