How to sew a zipper-mouth Frankenstein pillow for Halloween.

What I love about making Frankenstein crafts is because of his reputation of being sewn together as a monster in the books and movies, he is so forgiving when it comes to sewing mistakes. So when creating a Frankenstein craft, you can zig-zag, skip stitches, sew crooked and no one will know the better!

Ghosts in Tree Branch Centerpiece - Halloween Craft

Free DIY Halloween directions for Abigail & Barnabas the friendly ghost couple made from quilt batting and cheese cloth.

This charming ghost couple is made to look a little bit scary and old, as if they have come up right from the grave yard. But having Walt Disney World's "Haunted Mansion" ghost ride in mind while I was creating these, I wanted their appearance to be cute as well. So I embellished them with big eyes and a black hair bow for Abigail the smaller ghost, and a black bow tie for Barnabas the ghost who has his arms up to scare people! These friendly ghosts are coffee stained to look old and baked in the oven for a quick dry. Add a little pumpkin to the standing ghost couple and you have yourself a nice Halloween center-piece.
