20 Craft Ideas To Do With Halloween Coloring Pages

Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

20. Scrapbooking

For all you scrapbookers out there, you can cut out figures and use them to decorate your scrapbooking pages.

Leave them black and white or color them in – both have their merits. Or perhaps you could even color in the pages using an illustrator or paint software.

19. Journal Or Book Covers

Kick-off October, the calendar’s spookiest month, by using my Halloween pages as journal or book covers that are as cute as they are functional.

To make a journal cover, you’ll need a cheap notebook (the dollar store is great for this) that is smaller than the illustration’s page.

You will have your kids color in the picture and then wrap the notebook’s cover with the page, folding it neatly and gluing it down on the interior.

To make a book cover, you can print off the picture in landscape orientation (you could also use two different images, one on each side of the page).

18. Trick-Or-Treating Sign

If you aren’t home during the evening for trick-or-treating, you can use any of my Halloween pictures as a sign to accompany the candy bowl on your front porch.

Write on it “Take 1” or “Take A Few,” either on the computer or in marker directly on the sheet, and then laminate it or put it in a page protector.

Then you can just tape the poster onto the candy bowl.

17. Party Decorations

Naturally, my Halloween pages make terrific party decorations; you can even get your kids in on the action.

Have them choose which illustrations they’d like to use and color them in.

You could do cut-outs on the walls or hanging from the ceiling, place settings, make menus out of them or use them as signs to direct party-goers to the bathroom.

Individual figures can be used to let guests know what each food item is (especially if you have a creepy spread!).

16. Ghostly Luminaries

This simple craft is great for younger and older kids; all you need are mason jars and battery-powered tea lights.

You can use any of my Halloween coloring pages, but the ones with faces featuring prominently will work best.

Print them off and have your kids color them in.

Then they will create a tube out of the pages by rolling the papers up and taping the ends together.

(They can also create a hair-raising effect by cutting jagged points into the top of the page.)

Then you’re going to drop the tea lights into mason jars; if you have remote-powered lights, even better!

The pages will slip over the mason jars to look cute in the daylight and then totally spooky at night when they’re lit up!

15. Window Clings

You and your kids can make window clings – all you need is puffy paint.

You’ll print off the illustrations with the figures you want and then, using the puffy paints, outline the characters or items you want to turn into window clings directly onto the page.

You can get super creative, using multiple colors – how cool would an ornate haunted house or zombie cling be?

Then you’re going to wait for the paint to dry. The puffy paint might take a few days to dry completely, so be prepared.

Once it’s totally dry, carefully lift the paint off the page. Place directly onto the windows and enjoy your DIY Halloween decorations!

14. Treat Bags

Whether you’re prepping treat bags for a party or a classroom, you can use these to decorate them and give them a personal touch.

Simply choose the figures you want, color them in, then cut them out and paste them onto the plain bags.

To top it off, you can add ribbons in the same colors that feature on the picture or adorn them with stickers or marker drawings.

13. Cupcake Toppers

To make cupcake toppers, you’ll need to shrink the illustrations down to about three or four inches; you can copy and paste multiple onto the same document and print all at once.

Then you or your kids will color in the figures and cut them out.

Next, you will glue extra-long toothpicks to the backs; let the glue dry completely.

Once the glue is dry, you can stick the toothpicks into your cupcakes and enjoy!

12. Halloween Rocks

This very basic DIY craft is perfect for kids of all ages, even younger ones.

You’re going to shrink my illustrations down to between two to four inches (depending on the size of rocks you have), color them in, and cut them out.

Then you’ll take Mod Podge and affix the characters/figures to the rocks.

You can finish them off by writing Happy Halloween! on the back of the rocks and any identifying info (#rockout[your city name], for example).

11. Masks

Some of my coloring pages would make fantastic masks, including Zombie Face With Brains Showing or Ghostface from Scream.

Your kids will color in just the faces and cut them out.

Then you’ll take a hole punch and put in two holes on either side of the face.

You can use yarn, string, or even twine to knot a piece on each side so that they’re long enough to meet in the middle and be tied into a bow.

10. Crowns

Alternatively, you can turn my coloring pages into crowns or headbands – an ideal activity for a Halloween party at home or in school.

You’ll print off the illustration and have the kids color in just the central figure, whether it’s a witch’s hat or a ghost.

Then you’ll make two-inch strips of construction paper, taping several together and/or cutting them down if necessary to fit your kids’ heads.

You’ll then glue the figure onto the headband, wait for it to dry, and voilà – you have Halloween-themed crowns.

9. Bookmarks

There are plenty of figures that would make awesome bookmarks from my Halloween collection.

You can use just the figures reinforced with cardstock or glue the figures onto construction paper rectangles, punch a hole in the top, and add a “tail” of yarn.

Or use this origami method and paste it on a character’s face.

8. Puffy Ghosts

You’ll just need a lot of cotton balls and glue for a fun preschooler craft.

Take one of the ghost coloring pages and have your kids fill in the lines by gluing cotton balls down.

Then they can color the background or add to the 3D look using glitter glue or puffy paint.

7. Toilet Paper Party Tubes

You’ll need toilet paper rolls cut in half, plus goodies to stuff inside for this craft.

Have your kids pick out which illustration they want and color it in.

Then fill the toilet paper rolls with candy, stickers, little toys – anything that is fun and will fit.

Next, you will center the toilet paper roll in the middle of the sheet, with the illustration facing outward.

Roll it up to form a long tube around the toilet paper roll, and then make indents where the edges of the TP roll are.

That’s where you’ll tie off pieces of ribbon or yarn or even string. If you want to make it super festive, consider using an orange and black ribbon or green and black.

6. Play Props

You can turn any of the figures from my Halloween pages into essentially paper dolls that your kids can use their imaginations with and play with for hours.

Have your kids color in the figures they want and cut them out. Then they will trace the characters onto cardstock and cut out the outline.

They’ll paste the two pieces together and then, if they want, finish it off by pasting on a crafting stick.

5. Finger Puppets

Another great craft that works well with half-bodied figures is finger puppets.

You’ll have your kids color in and cut out the desired figures. Then they’ll poke two holes near the bottom of the cut-outs.

Enlarge the holes with scissors as necessary; they can slip their fingers through them and hold up the figures as they play.

4. Pins

To make pins, you’ll need shrink sheets, a hot glue gun, and pinbacks.

You’ll print off the illustrations your kids want onto the shrink sheets, have them color them in with markers, and cut them out.

Bake them off per the instructions and wait for them to cool completely.

Then you’ll hot glue the pin backs to the cut-outs and wait for the glue to dry.

You can add them to shirts or pants, backpacks or purses or even stick them onto shoes.

3. Haunted House Table Décor 

Turn one of my haunted house coloring pages into table décor that is as spooky as it is beautiful.

Color in one of my haunted houses and carefully cut it out along the edges. You’ll trace the cut-out onto a piece of cardstock and then cut that out, too.

Paste the two pieces together and then cut out an obtuse triangle using another piece of cardstock. Fold the triangle in half and open it to stand up on its own.

Carefully glue the edge of the triangle to the back of the haunted house so that the house is held up by it.

You can add a tea light from behind the house so that it glows eerily in the dark.

2. Floating Ghosts

You’ll need paper plates and popsicle sticks to make these floating ghosts.

First, you will cut out a small, thin rectangle from the center of the paper plate (you can fold the paper plate in half and cut along the fold for ease).

Then you’ll have your kids color in (or not) the ghosts of their choice. They’ll glue the popsicle sticks to the back of the ghosts so that there’s enough at the bottom to hold onto.

Then they can poke the ghosts up through the paper plate’s hole and make them float along.

1. Greeting Cards

My coloring pages make adorable and convenient greeting cards, whether you’re in a pinch and can’t make it to the store or you just want to give something DIY.

You can print out the illustration on the half page or the quarter page and fold it accordingly, then you or your kids can get to work coloring in the illustration.

Don’t forget to write Happy Halloween on the inside, and if you can think of one, add a witty message to the front!
