If you're too busy to spend time on Halloween craft projects but you'd like to do some kind of activity with your family, you're in luck. The online world is a great source of free Halloween images that can be used to make simple crafts. As an example, crafts made from these Halloween images found on the Internet are simple to make, because vintage images are versatile and also quite effective when it comes to delivering a Halloween vibe. There's something for everyone, because vintage Halloween images range from sweet to gory to scary. Vintage images can also be downloaded and used without fear of copyright problems. That's a terrific bonus, because you don't have to worry about using other people's art illegally.

Just a simple online search using the search term “vintage Halloween” will give you a huge selection of free vintage images from which many craft projects can be made. And, of course, if you don't like vintage, contemporary Halloween clip art can also produce great craft projects.

Here are some examples of simple Halloween projects virtually anyone can make by using free electronic images:

Spooky Hand-made Halloween Cards
When you've downloaded the Halloween image you'd like to use, paste it into a Word, PowerPoint or OneNote document. You can make the card virtually whatever size you want by adjusting the software's settings. Place the image on one half of the card, so it can be folded in half after it's printed. Print the card on card stock as heavy as your printer will allow, fold it and and apply just a little glitter glue to make it sparkle. You can also make your own envelopes or just get some at the dollar store.

Terrifyingly Fun Halloween Door Wreath
Crafting Halloween wreath is easy. Here are the supplies you'll need:

  • Scissors
  • 1 plain wreath ring
  • Halloween cards of your choice (between two and four inches long), printed and cut along the outlines
  • Halloween scrapbook paper (optional)
  • Short, straight pins
  • Ribbon or door-hanger

Download the art you want to use to your hard drive. Then, print enough clip art images to fit around the wreath and cut them out with scissors or a craft knife. You can also vary the look by using Halloween scrapbooking paper cut into bat or leaf shapes. Once all the pieces are cut, stick them to the wreath with the pins. You might need to adjust the pieces a bit to find the right look. The straight pins should make it easy to reposition the elements. (Just make sure small kids don't get their hands on the pins!) When you're done, hang it from a ribbon.

I sincerely hope you enjoy making these crafts, and that your Halloween is fun!
