Halloween Silhouette Scenes

These Halloween silhouette scenes are a nice quiet activity. I had one of my munchkins at home sick and when the tv became tedious she wanted to do some art with me. We spent a lovely and quite afternoon doing this craft together.

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

For these Halloween silhouette scenes you will need:

  • White paper (craft stock is better than ordinary paper as it is thicker)
  • Water colours
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil
  • Black paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors

On your white paper paint a sunset backdrop. We had fun experimenting with blending colours to create different effects. We found that to blend one colour into the other it is a good idea to go over the colour break with just a wet brush. YC particularly enjoyed blending colours on the palate to create new hues.

While your sunset backdrop is drying, start drawing the objects you want to silhouette onto the black paper. I used Halloween cookie cutters to make a witch, ghost, owl, and bat.

Next cut them out. We found that the less details we had the easier it was to cut them out.

Finally arrange them onto your sunset backdrop to create your Halloween silhouette scenes.
