On Saturday, October 26, and Sunday, October 27, National Aquarium will be celebrating Hallowmarine!
In addition to fun activities like a scare-venger hunt (see what we did there?) and creepy-crawly animal encounters taking place throughout the Aquarium, our celebration will also include some eco-friendly DIY crafts!
Can’t wait until this weekend to make some fun Halloween crafts? Try some of our favorites at home!
- An old t-shirt
- Peel ‘n’ stick fabric adhesive
- Lay your t-shirt down on a flat surface. Using the seams as your guide, cut off the sleeves and neck of the t-shirt.
- Place a long strip of fabric adhesive along the bottom seam of the shirt’s back.
- Using your fingers, seal the front and back of the shirt.
- On the front of your sealed shirt, use the paint and glitter to create whatever spook-tacular design your heart desires! Our team went for the classic jack-o-lantern look!
- An old mason jar
- Glue or decoupage
- Paint brush
- Tissue paper
- Black permanent marker
- Tea candle or LED candle
- First, it’s important to make sure that the glass of your mason jar is clear of any paper or plastic coverings.
- Either rip or cut small strips of tissue paper. Set aside.
- Using your paintbrush, apply a thin layer of glue or decoupage to your jar.
- Apply your strips of tissue paper until your jar is evenly covered.
- Set your covered jar aside to dry.
- Once completely dry, use your permanent markers to draw a ghost face!
