8 Spooky Halloween Nature Crafts

Oct 20, 2020

There is much more to do with plants for Halloween than just pumpkin carving. This round-up of nature crafts proves that! Whether you're a grown-up or a kid, you'll have fun making these fun crafts to decorate your home in time for the spookiest day of the year.

Flora Fun Box is about more than just floral arranging (although we LOVE that!). We like to bring you a taste of the season, and these Halloween crafts encompass so many of the things we enjoy: plants, nature, creativity, and celebration. 

So pull out the pipe cleaners and flower pots, and get crafting!

Pine Cone Spiders

What kind of Halloween would it be without a spider craft? Take a walk to enjoy the fall leaves and forage for pine cones at the same time. A group of varying sizes of pine cone spiders would be spooky adorable!

Sugar Skull Painted Flower Pots

For some Dia de los Muertos fun, look at these awesome sugar skull flower pots! Add some succulents, and you'll have a fun splash of color that you won't want to put away after the Day of the Dead officially ends.

Leaf Zombies

A string of these would make a spooktacular addition to any home. So many possibilities with leave shapes and colors, too! This feels like the ultimate fall nature craft: using colorful autumn leaves.

Pumpkins and chrysanthemums just belong together on the front porch in fall. You've probably seen mums planted inside of a hollowed out pumpkin, but why go even further with this craft?

Stick Spiderwebs

These would be so much fun hanging inside or outside! Maybe your pine cone spider could make a home on it for some extra spooky Halloween fun.

Spooky Spider Plants

I love a good play on words! These spider plant pots are holding...spider plants! I also think turning a pot or vase into a spider for any autumn floral arrangement would be lots of fun.

Bark Owls

You'd have to be barking mad not to love these little nature owls. This craft is perfect for perching on a branch of autumn leaves. If you choose something with live leaves on it, take a look at our arranging with autumn leaves tutorial to help those branches last a long time.

Nature Wands

Fall is the perfect time to get a little witchy. Whether your a Harry Potter fan or not, these nature wands are lots of fun for all aspiring witches and wizards.
