Make Halloween Decorations for Your Dolls

Mmm! Can you smell it in the air?  Yep! That is pumpkin spice you smell. It’s time! Fall is here!  Everyone is gearing up for trick or treat on Halloween, even the dolls!   Make a few decorations for your dollhouse for the season so they can celebrate Halloween in style.

Halloween crafts for dolls by Oh Sew Kat!

Kelly loves her pretty Halloween decorations, made from a few item from the local craft store.  Here are some easy projects to try for your doll!  Is it past Halloween when you are reading this? No worries, you can make them for other seasons too! This post has affiliate links.

To see the tutorial and find the pattern pieces for the cute, little Spooky Bat, see page 22 of the October issue of iCreate Monthly. If you have not seen this magazine (online or in a glorious print issue each month!) I highly encourage you to check it out. If you are looking for a gift of patterns, crafts, and more for dolls, take a look at iCreate Monthly. 

Boo Blocks:  These are so easy to make for any season!  I purchased a bag of one inch blocks at the craft store, just like these.  I used a one inch square punch (but you can use a paper cutter or ruler too) and cut squares from different scrapbook papers.  I mixed and matched prints and solids and drew pumpkin faces on the orange ones.  With sticker letters, I spelled out BOO!  Stack them up to make a cute tabletop decoration!

Washi Tape Flag Banner:  Who doesn’t love washi tape? In so many colors, and so many patterns, it’s hard not to collect a whole drawer full of the cute little rolls! Pull out your favorites, and some thick twine or yard, and create a super quick, super easy decoration for your doll’s Halloween party.

Add a few pumpkins or hats from the craft store, and you’ve set up a quick and easy, festive Halloween Party for your dolls!
