DIY Halloween Creepy Clown Decoration
One of the scariest things to me on Halloween is not vampires, ghosts or zombies, it is the creepy clown. Something about the pom pom nose and painted smile seems a little unnerving. I also think it is because it is supposed to be fun and playful makes it even more disturbing. Here is a creepy clown decoration you can make for Halloween that is just scary enough to be a fun addition to your Halloween decorations. I used mostly reused household items and inexpensive things from the craft store to create this scary clown.
Materials for the Creepy Clown Decoration
- White Plastic Mask
- Paint in Assorted Colors
- Craft Foam
- Stiff Black Felt
- Purple Felt
- Yellow Rick Rack
- Red Pom Pom
- Empty Ziplock Bag Box
- Green and Yellow Tissue Paper
- Craft Glue

Instructions for the Creepy Clown Decoration
Draw the clown face on the mask with pencil.
Paint the face with acrylic paint.
Cut two pieces of craft foam slightly larger that they eye holes and glue the on the inside of the mask over the eye holes to fill in the eyes. Paint the eyes as shown above.
Open up the top of the box.
Cut a piece of cardboard the shape of the hair and glue green tissue to it.
Cut a piece of felt the height of the box and glue a decorative trim of rick rack to the center.
Paint the box a bright color and gather up the felt piece and glue to the box as shown.
Cut a hat shape out of the stiff felt.
Glue the clown face to the to part of the box. You may need to attach a piece of cardboard to the back of the head to secure. Glue the had to the head and the daisy to the had to make him look even more menacing. Stuff yellow tissue inside the box to finish your masterpiece!
