Tissue paper pumpkins, great party favors

Pumpkins are one of the first things that come to mind when I think of fall. I love decorating with them and using them whenever I can. I have never been a huge Halloween fan. I don’t mind it, but having kids has made me enjoy it more because it is so fun for them. But, I am not a fan of the creepy side of the day. I like the cutesy, fun part. These are perfect if you are like me!Easy Halloween or Thanksgiving treats , perfect for school parties. Tissue paper Pumpkins, kids crafts made easy

All you will need is:

orange tissue paper (cut 1 sheet into 4 equal squares)

green washi tape

candy or surprise to put inside

All you have to do is take a couple of pieces of your candy and place them in the center, pulling the sides up into a little bag. Make sure that all of the edge is able to be gathered together so there isn’t any holes for your candy to fall out.

Once it is gathered give it a couple of twists to keep it from opening. Once you have twisted it shut, wrap the washi tape around the twist. You will have some paper hanging over the top. Simply trim that off with a pair of scissors to leave a clean edge.

Easy to make DIY hairbows

DIY hairbows that are easy to make

My daughter is a little old for cute little hair clips. So I was a little surprised when she asked me to make her some. I was glad to get the chance, because it has been a long time since she wore them! She plays volleyball for her middle school and she wanted them for her games. Since I had to buy ribbon for them anyway, I got enough to do them for the rest of the girls too so they could all match. These are perfect for putting on a pony tail or braid and work for little girls or big girls.

You will need:

Ribbon (I used 2 different colors for the team colors) grosgrain is best

sewing scissors

thread and needle

coordinating hair elastic bands

small candle

Begin by cutting your ribbon in the desired size. I used about 18 inches for each bow.

Once your ribbon is cut, lay it down so it looks similar to an awareness ribbon (think breast cancer or similar)

Once you have your ribbon with the tails the length you want them to hang, fold the top of the curve down so it rests underneath the sides like so. Once you are there you will want to adjust them so they are even and look nice.

Once they are the way you want them, grab your thread and scissors and tie a knot in the end. Grab a fairly long piece because you will be wrapping around several times.

You will also grab your ponytail holder and hold it against the back.

Push your needle and thread through, starting from the back so the knot doesn’t show. Wrap around the bow and through the middle of the ponytail holder several times. Be sure to hold tight so it isn’t loose. You want a good tight grip.

Once you have gone around several times, secure your thread by passing the needle through under the loops a few times.  Trim off your edges.

Now it is time to make sure they don’t fray. I am sure you had some fraying as you made your ribbon. Light a small candle and hold the ribbon near, but far enough that it will not actually catch the ribbon on fire. You just want it to singe and melt the very edge so that there will be no additional fraying.

I normally wouldn’t pick gold and brown if I was just randomly picking, but that is our lovely school colors so that is what I made.

How to make a cloth diaper for baby dolls, No Sew pattern perfect gift for little girls #DollDiaper, #NoSewDollDiaper, #Patern, #diaper

Felt Doll Diaper Tutorial

 Did you know you can make baby doll diapers to fit just about any doll. They are quick and easy and your kids will love being able to quickly change their babies diaper.

Have you seen the ridiculous prices on doll diapers at the store? If you have a little girl surely you have, and the ones that are sticky and supposedly reusable? Not so much, the adhesive doesn’t even last as long as real diapers. Besides that there is pretty much one color, white with a tiny bit of print. If you make your own you are saving a ton of money,  you can make them to fit any doll, and in wide variety of colors and even patterns using inexpensive felt squares from the craft store.  Your little girl will love having her own stack of cute and colorful diapers to reuse over and over, they are also washable so they will last a long time as well.

How to make a cloth diaper for baby dolls, No Sew pattern perfect gift for little girls #DollDiaper, #NoSewDollDiaper, #Patern, #diaperSupplies Needed:

  • 9×12 Felt pieces
  • velcro
  • scissors
  • needle and thread or sewing machine

Fold your felt square in half longways.
Measure and mark 1 “ down on the ends, and 5 ¼” in on the bottom from each edge- make sure you do this on the folded side.
Using a ruler mark a line from the side marks and bottom center marks creating a triangle on each corner, cut away these small triangles.
Cut 2”off the front upper corners, and 1 “ off the back.
Use this first diaper as a template to trace and cut all your other diapers.
Hot glue or sew a small piece of velcro centered  ½” from the edge on front flap. Attach the other piece of velcro onto back flap 1” in as well.
This diaper fits a standard Cabbage Patch, if you are using it for a different brand of doll you can very easily adjust it to fit, after  cutting off the  triangles wrap it around your doll, mark where the velcro would fit best and cut your lengths there instead.
Felt is usually only 4/$1 so you can easily make a dozen of these in various colors in about half an hour, they make a great Christmas gift for any little girl  (or boy) in your life.How to make a cloth diaper for baby dolls, No Sew pattern perfect gift for little girls #DollDiaper, #NoSewDollDiaper, #Patern, #diaper
