While looking for my Halloween decorations, I came across these adorable window art projects that J and I made together last year.  They look so cute that I just had to share them!  We made a ghost, two jack-o-lanterns, and Frankenstein and, just like last year, they are haunting the large window in the piano studio.

How to Make Halloween Suncatchers

I drew shapes for a ghost, jack-o-lanterns, and Frankenstein on black construction paper using a pencil.  I also made accessories like black eyes and a mouth for the ghost, facial features for the pumpkins, and Frankenstein's features.  Once I cut them all out, I assembled them on the sticky side of a piece of contact paper.  I also put two googly eyes face down on the sticky side for Frankenstein.

I then set out some green, white, and orange tissue paper for J to rip and place as he pleased onto the contact paper.  Once he was happy with the tissue paper distribution, I placed another piece of contact paper on top.  Then I cut around the finished shapes to make the window art look polished.

Meet Frankenstein!

And then there's our two goofy looking jack-o-lanterns.

Here's how they are placed in our window for Halloween this year.  J was so happy to help hang them up by the piano.  I'm sure my piano students will enjoy looking at them too!
