Are you looking for some fun things to do for your Halloween party this year or for the Halloween season.  Try this Creepy Checkers craft that is a great decoration and can be a fun addition for your home and a party.

This craft was fun to do and surprisingly easy.

I purchased a half pumpkin at my local craft store.

Next, I drew lines with a pencil horizontally around the circumference of the pumpkin.


Using the pencil lines and grooves of the pumpkin, I painted squares on the pumpkin using chalkboard paint.





Now for the fun touches.  I drew spooky checkers using Artisan's Effect markers.  I used the white markers to make the circle checkers and then used the black markers to put Halloween themed figures on them.


Then I wrote my game's name and scoring tally on a non-porous chalkboard.  I attached the half pumpkin to the board.

Because this chalkboard is non-porous, I can easily wipe off the writing from the Artisan's Effect markers.

I used a piece of craft twine to attach a white Artisan's Effect marker to be used to tally the score.


Now I have a cute Halloween decoration throughout the month and a great party game.
