This is an easy craft to help kids get in on all that Halloween action. They can choose to make traditional Halloween characters, or run wild with their imagination.
- sturdy felt for base
- soft felt, craft foam, and other craft materials in Halloween colours
- googly eyes
- pin backs
- glue gun
1. Sturdy felt makes a great base for making pins because it easily supports decorations without going floppy on you. When cutting out the base, make sure it is large enough for the pin back.
2. Glue on decorations made from felt, foam, and other craft items, such as beads and googly eyes. Press between two heavy books for several hours or overnight.
3. Attach pin backs using a glue gun, and you’re ready to show them off.

These are great. They would make an easy, fun craft at the classroom Halloween parties that parents usually sponsor. They could be pressed in books right in the room and have their pin backs glued on the next day by one volunteer who comes back to do that! Fun! I think middle school age kids would love them!
Thanks Joyce – fun to make and fun to wear 🙂
These are just plain fun! I love the skeleton and mummy ones the best!

This are so cute and seem easy to make, too. The felt backing is a practical idea and I love the googly eyes.
Aw, you always make the cutest things! I love them! 🙂
Why thank you!
Every time I see one of your cool crafts, I always think to myself on how much fun it would be to spend a few days creating things with you! Man, I would love that!
That would be so cool! I guess that’s one of the down sides of connecting with people online, since we live all over the world.
I know what you mean! I wish I could magically move everyone on one street so we could have so much fun together! By the way, where are you at?
Cute pins! Thanks for sharing @ Submarine Sunday!
