One of the last projects I’m working on this week is creating this year’s Halloween cards. As I’ve mentioned before, going to the card store has become quite an experience that usually ends with a lot of card throwing. So, I’ve started to find creative ways to create my own cards at home such as our DIY birthday cards. My favorite part about making our own cards is adding a touch from the kids. This year we created some Halloween fingerprint pumpkin patch cards using some very special orange fingerprints.
You Will Need:
Free Printable Happy Halloween Cards
thin black marker
little hands willing to help
1. Print out our Free Printable Happy Halloween Cards on heavy white cardstock. Cut the cards out. Score down the middle and fold.
2. Sponge paint a green background below the Happy Halloween greeting. Let dry.
3. Help your child dip one finger in orange paint and press it on the card. Continue making pumpkins until your card is filled. Just a note… depending on your little ones age, there’s a good chance pumpkins might end up in mid-air or orange streaks fly across the sky. I’m just telling everyone it is part of the art!
Let the paint dry.
4. Once your pumpkins are dry, draw jack o’lantern faces on them. Send your Halloween greetings to someone special!
These cards are such a fun craft to make with your kids and a great way to create a lasting memory. Your friends and family are sure to love your creativity!
