Make Your Own Halloween Clip Art

day of dead skull coloring pageDecorated Day of the Dead Skull

I created this decorated skull from a Day of the Dead coloring page. I opened the GIF file in PhotoShop, saved it as a PSD file, then started selecting areas to fill or stroke with colors. If you don't have PhotoShop, you can use any simple graphics program that has a paint feature, for example MS Paint or Paint Shop Pro.

This is a simple but effective way to create a quick piece of clip art for a blog or personal web page and saves a whole lot of drawing time.

Halloween Spider Web Border

I used this Spider Web Halloween Border to make gift tag labels. You could also use it for scrapbooks, or to make treat bag toppers, name tags or table cards. It comes in 2 sizes (this is the smaller size).

Old Man Pumpkin Head

We went to the Temple Halloween Parade this weekend and got motivated to start working on Halloween crafts and outdoor decorations like this nifty grandpa farmer scarecrow.

A Halloween Scarecrow with a pumpkin head is a fun family yard decoration for fall. I may even try my hand at some extreme pumpkins this year.
