Halloween Mural

This Halloween mural is a fun way to tell picture stories. Ask friends to help out -- there's space for everyone!

What You'll Need:

Butcher paper or heavy wrapping paper


Masking tape


Poster paints


A mural is a large-size wall painting that tells a story or creates a scene.

To make your holiday mural, tape a long piece of paper on the wall. Spread newspaper out along the floor.

Starting at one end of the paper, paint a Halloween scene. Make a picket fence with jack-o'-lanterns, black cats, goblins, and a harvest moon.

Add more items to "tell" a spooky or fun Halloween story. Follow your ideas right across the mural. Let the paint dry.

This is a great project for a Halloween party. Have your friends each paint an area of the mural.

Find even more treats for Halloween with a special trick-or-treat jug. Learn how you can make an ordinary milk jug to match your costume with a little decoration.
