Halloween DYI Crafting Fun

Get into the Halloween Fun with Crafts!

I love crafts that we can do together. My kids like to make a mess and I like to let them.

Last Saturday we spent a few hours of down time crafting.

It was really fun to let the kids get creative with bright colors. 
Here is a step by step to make a colorful pumpkin wreath and a mini pumpkin! 

* Cut your shapes from cardboard, we used an old water bottle case box. 
* We used the cut out from the circle used for the pumpkin as a mini pumpkin.
* Scrunch tissue paper, the color of your choice and stick with glue or double sided tape like we did.
* Paint your second craft - the pumpkin. After it dries a bit then add the layered curved lines in with more coats of paint to give the pumpkin look to it. 
* add any accessories to your crafts - we added tissue paper to the tops of both pumpkin wreath and mini so that the stem was more vibrant & stands out. 

We got the tissue paper our of our bag of gift bags and tissue paper stash and we used tempra paints that my kids paint with. 

We taped a little piece of string to the back and looped it so that it would hang. 

Have fun with it!
If you craft up some fall fun I would love to see it. Please share on my FB or comments below. 
Happy Halloween
