10 Craft Ideas To Do With Horror Coloring Pages
Spooky characters are frighteningly fun for children of all ages to color.
Here are 10 terrific, affordable, and fun craft ideas to do with horror-themed coloring pages.
1. DIY Movie Poster
A homemade horror movie poster is a big hit with any child, making a great bedroom decoration.
The children should pick their favorite horror movie, color it, and cut out the creepy character from the page.
It should be glued to the right side of a horizontally-positioned poster board.
On the left side, the child can use a fat line magic marker or puffy paint to write “Now Showing” and the name of the movie from which the sinister character was born.
2. Michael Myers Crystal Ball
Start the youngster with a clear, plastic ball that can be found at any hobby store and fill it with shredded tissue paper to give it a smokey appearance.
Once the character is colored and cut from the page, it can be slid inside the glass, facing out, so it looks like the face is appearing in the crystal ball.
Rubber spiders, homemade cobwebs, or other spooky novelty items can be added to the top, and this frightening face can be displayed anywhere!
3. Scream Mask
If your child’s favorite horror movie is “Scream,” this craft is ideal. Have the child color the famous mask and glue the page in its entirety to thin cardboard.
When cut out, holes can be punched on either side to place elastic thread so the mask can be worn.
To give it texture and depth, the youngsters can make bulging eyes with black pom-poms or add some extra gore with puffy red paint.
4. A Creepy Chucky Wreath
This gruesome Chucky craft is one that any child will love, and it begins with a simple wreath.
This can be purchased at a discount store or made by hand by twisting brown packing paper into a thick circle.
Once it’s colored and cut from the page, the Chucky character should be glued to the top. On the bottom, a toy knife can be added–after it’s painted with “blood.”
A small handmade sign that says “Wanna Play?” is the perfect finishing touch for this delightfully ghoulish wreath.
5. Hellraiser Cube on Display
This easy craft is based on the infamous movie, “Hellraiser” and is simple to make.
Begin with a small cardboard box or even an old Rubik’s cube, and use black paper to laminate it on all four sides.
At the top, “Hellraiser” should be written in puffy red paint and cutouts from the coloring pages that decorate the remaining five panels.
The entire spooky ensemble should be sealed in acrylic spray, and the youngster has created the iconic cube from the movie!
6. R.I.P. Jason Voorhees
For this ghastly craft, have the youngsters cut headstones from gray poster boards or construction paper and mount them on a larger, black background.
A bit of space should be left to slide something behind the headstone.
“R.I.P. Jason Voorhees” should be written with puffy red paint, making the letters appear as if they are dripping.
Once Jason is colored and cut from the page, he should be tucked behind the headstone as if he is doing anything but resting in peace!
7. Welcome to Elm Street
Using an old Christmas wreath, the youngster should cut a jagged pattern from white construction paper and attach it to the inner circle of the wreath to look like teeth.
A tattered brown hat can be made from construction paper and placed at the wreath’s top.
When Freddie is colored and cut from the page, he should be added to the bottom, along with a text bubble.
Inside the bubble, a nightmarish “Welcome to Elm Street” greeting should be written in black puffy paint!
8. Chucky’s Favorite Holiday
Chucky is perfect for this ghastly craft; all the youngster needs are a coloring page and a small pumpkin.
A page featuring Chucky’s full-size face is perfect, and when it is colored and cut out, it should be glued to the surface of the pumpkin with craft glue.
Orange yarn is ideal for creating Chucky’s famous hair, and puffy red paint works to add some facial details to his face.
Finally, a toy knife can be stabbed into the pumpkin at an odd angle for the perfect finishing touch.
9. A Glass of Horror
A coloring page featuring the gruesome clown from “It” is perfect for this spooky craft.
When the scary clown face is colored, it should be cut out and carefully glued to a styrofoam ball.
Eerie wiggle eyes should be added, and the ball should be placed inside the glass for a super creepy craft.
A spider web can be drawn around the base of the glass with black puffy paint, and the youngster can serve up a cup of horror!
10. A Hair-Raising Leatherface Ornament
That famous tool from the Texas chainsaw massacre is probably hanging in every garage or barn, so why not have some fun with it?
When several coloring pages have been finished, and your youngster has enough gruesome cutouts, they can be used as decals on an old saw.
This quickly turns the tool into a ghoulish decoration, and when a few coats of acrylic spray are added, it will last for years!
