Crafting fun for everyone!

Step-by-step instructions. Printable patterns. Updates each week.

Welcome to Aunt Annie's Crafts!

Take a look around. You'll find crafting fun for children, teens and adults. A craft how-to is featured each Monday, with a special craft treat added each Wednesday, and at the end of the week it's Friday Fun with simple crafts for families, groups or classrooms.

Featured this week: Halloween greeting cards that spin!

  • Halloween Dangler Cards - These free-standing Halloween cards with ghost or jack-o'-lantern danglers serve double-duty as a greeting card and a fun decoration for Halloween. Make several for your friends and family and some for yourself.

  • Wednesday Treat: Printables for Halloween cards, tags, favors, or banners!

    This week's Wednesday treat is a set of printable, two-sided Halloween dangler patterns for Halloween Dangler Cards or to use as treat bag tags or Halloween party favors or strung together to make a party banner. The black & white pattern can be used for a Halloween activity where each child adds a face to a jack-o'-lantern or ghost.

  • This Week's Friday Fun: A spooky Halloween card for kids to make!

    Kids' Spooky Halloween Dangler Cards - In this project, kids make a house spook from black construction paper with an opening for peering inside at the ghostly residents. The jack-o'-lantern dangler and front cutout are made from orange construction paper. Folded flat, the greeting card fits nicely in a small envelope.

Featured last week: Halloween paper chains with ghosts!

  • Ghost Garland - This colorful garland of ghosts is a quick and easy way to decorate for Halloween. The project includes printable patterns for ghosts and illustrated instructions for making the garland based on a paper chain in Halloween colors.

  • Wednesday Treat: Blank ghost patterns for your spooky creativity!

    Last week's Wednesday treat was a set of printable plain ghost patterns for Ghost Garlands. Get your creative juices going and draw a scary (or funny) face on these blank patterns and then add them to your Ghost Garland for Halloween.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Make little ghosts from squares of tissue paper!

    Colorful Tissue Ghosts - What could be cuter than little ghosts in a bowl? Tissue ghosts are an easy, inexpensive way to decorate for Halloween. In this project, you'll see how to make a colorful version of the traditional tissue ghost by adding fading color accents.
