We were recently sent a fantastic box full of craft goodies from Bostik for our first Bostik Blogger challenge. As I am now three, Mummy and I are really looking forward to crafting and making more together. We decided to make some simple Halloween crafts.
This box was put together for Halloween, and we had great fun choosing a few crafts and making some great decorations – we hope you like them.
Mummy looks for really simple crafts that are easy and quick to make (as I do get a little bored) and crafts that I can really help to make. So, they may not be the most fanciest, perfect, Pinterest ready crafts, but they are real, I helped to do them, and to choose things like the eyes, and the colours. And they are ours 🙂
I liked the little hama-type beads that were in the box and was very busy making a picture. Then I spilt the packet everywhere, Mummy had a mini meltdown, as she was searching and choosing which decorations we were going to make. So my picture isn’t finished. Yet.
Lea, my big sis helped out too – she loves making things, and she wanted to make a witch.
A super simple, super cute witch.
A cardboard cone
A piece of black felt
Green foam sheet
We glued the black felt around the cone to cover it completely, and held it in place with a wooden peg. Mummy cut out a circle shape from the green foam sheet, then cut a smaller circle out of the middle to make the witches hats brim. Mummy’s mild OCD kicked in, she wanted a black hat rim, but I wanted green. As I am the blogger here, I won 😉
I popped the hat rim into place onto the witch.
I picked her eyes, and helped to glue them on, and her mouth which Lea cut out, and her dress trim.
We then wanted to use the black and orange paper plates. I very definitely wanted to make a spider and a pumpkin. Sweet and simple.
As well as the plates, we used:
Green zig zag braid
Get ready, these are so easy to make, but so fun and cute.
I stuck the googly eyes onto the plate. Mummy cut out a little mouth from the green foam sheet (yep, my colour choice again!) and I stuck it on. I held the black pipe cleaners in place and Mummy used sticky tape to keep them there.
We also added an extra pipe cleaner as a web hook thingy to hang the spider from.
The pumpkin was similar – I glued googly eyes onto the plate and Mummy made a scary mouth for him (guess what from?) We then added the zig zag braid as his stalk, and to hang him from We used sticky tape to stick it. To hang him another way, we stuck a stripy pipe cleaner onto the back of the plate.
So here are our finished simple Halloween crafts. What do you think?
Oh and as a little extra, Lea made me a green and orange loom band bracelet from the packet in the box. It glows in the dark for Halloween!
