Halloween Craft #DIY #Crafts

Crafting and gardening are a couple of my go-tos for relieving stress. Yesterday, I needed to do a little crafting to clear my mind. I decided to some Halloween crafts.

So here is what I started with:

2 different designs of Scrapbook paper

2 wood leaves (holes were already in the wood and it came with the twine)

Modge Podge

Scissors

Trace the wood leaf on the back side of the scrapbook paper.

Cut it out.

Brush Modge Podge on the wood.

Place the paper on the wood. Line up, and press firmly.

Use the twine to go through the hole and tie it in a know.

Wind sock

I use the empty (and clean) frozen concentrate container, poke 2 holes on the bottom of it (which becomes the top).

Insert a long piece of string into the holes and tie from the inside. I had my five year old put his hand in to pull it out for me. Tied it in a double knot and then pulled it from the top.

I taped strips of green construction paper to the container.

And finally, cut 3 strips of streamer paper and taped it to the inside of the container.

Pot o’gold

This one, we just taped a piece of black construction paper to the empty (and clean) frozen concentrate container.

Nestled in the green confetti paper that came in this months tasting box.

I had a 12 x 12 piece of rainbow type scrapbook paper and taped inside the tasting box.

I used a handkerchief to stuff inside the container, to make it look full.

My son had a few “Super Mario” coins that we used for the treasure on top.

Fall Bucket List

DIY Superhero Boxes for my little one #DIY #Superhero

One of the things I enjoy doing as a hobby or with my kid, it’s crafts. I have never been that good but I always enjoy making stuff. Each year I seem to get a little bit better or a little more creative. We’ve been doing a lot more crafts lately with my kid going into kindergarten. He is really into superheroes right now. Especially Batman and Superman.

I had some blank wooden jewelry boxes that needed crafting, so I thought it would be a great project for he and I. He didn’t really seem to want to finish his project after paining his box halfway with black paint. So I decided to finish it for him. I asked him if he wanted Batman or Superman, because I had scrapbook papers of each. He said he wanted both. So I decided OK, I’ll go ahead and make you a box for each superhero.

So I finish painting the rest of the black for his Batman box. Cut out the logos from the Batman scrapbook paper and used Modge Podge to adhere them to the box. When I was done I did a nice coating of the Modge Podge on top.

For the other one, he decided he wanted a red base with a yellow top. I did the same thing, cut out logos but I also cut out borders for this box.

Easy #Fall #DIY Idea

My mom gave me some fake acorns a while ago and I wasn’t sure what it was going to do with them when Fall came around. Well I was at Dollar Tree yesterday and saw this adorable ribbon and had to buy it.

So I grabbed a clear vase type of container, the fake acorns and the ribbon and went to work, briefly. Measure your ribbon around your container. Cut the ribbon and then use scotch tape to hold together. Add acorns and there ya go.

Fun #Halloween Treat for Kids

Here is a super simple treat to make with your kids. You only need 4 things.

What you need:

Tissues

Dum-dum lollipops

String

Sharpie

This was a fun little project to do with my three year old. I tied the tissue on to the lollipop and let him add the eyes to our ghost. He has a blast.
