Halloween

Mummy craft

A fun mummy craft perfect for kids and adults.

Not many supplies are needed to throw together this simple mummy craft, but, it is a great craft for kids and adults. Do it together for a fun craft day when the fall weather is too brisk to go outside. I made mine in an 8×10 size, so you can add it in a frame and share year after year.

You will need:

Brown or black paper (construction or cardstock)

white printer paper

distressing ink *optional

googly eyes

glue stick

Begin tearing your paper into strips. I like them to be “messy” but you can rip your paper more carefully for a more clean look. Once you have some strips torn you will want to distress them. Ink pads are great for this, because you can just rub it across the ripped edge for a nice aged look.

I also chose to cut my paper down. I wanted the strips of paper to go all the way to the ends without the edges showing. So I cut my paper to an 8×10 size, leaving some overhang when I glued down the strips.

Now glue your strips down onto the paper starting at one end. Be sure to leave a small space where you will glue your googly eyes so they can peek out. Once I was done with that, I simply trimmed off the edges that hung over my paper giving it a straight edge.

I think it is a perfect, easy, Halloween craft perfect for any age.

Yesterday I finally took the time to paint one with my girls.  It was a quick and easy project that the girls had a fun time making.  I like the cute side of Halloween (not the ghost and goblins) so I am pretty excited about this adorable new pumpkin sitting on my front porch.

I started with white on the top then did the yellow on the bottom.  We did two coats to cover the pumpkin, but if you use a good quality paint you might only have to do one layer.

Once the paint is dry,  tie a bow around the stem. Simple as that you have made your very own Candy Corn Pumpkin.

Trunk Or Treat~ Easy Way To Decorate Your Trunk

Looking for a quick, last minute idea to decorate your car for a trunk or treat? If you don’t know what a trunk or treat is, that is where you meet in a parking lot with a group of people and go trick or treating to each vehicle.  Its easy, quick and safe (no worries about your kids out walking on the dark streets where a vehicle may not see them).

This face was done in minutes and gives my boring trunk some personality.

You will need:

3 paper plates

black paper

glue

ruler

pen/pencil

scissors

Tape

Begin by using your ruler and pen/pencil to divide one of the plates into quarters.  Then cut them.  These will be your teeth.

Set the teeth aside and begin on your eyes.  I traced a small bowl on my black paper to get my inner eye.  Trace, cut, and then glue one black circle to each of your remaining paper plates.  There is your eyes.

Tape them on the back of your car and you are ready for the trunk or treaters!

Happy Halloween!

Easy Minecraft Inspired Costumes~DIY

Looking for an easy, quick and thrifty Halloween costume?  Does your child love Minecraft as much as mine?  Well then you are in luck!

These costumes were easy and just required a little patience to put together.

For “Steve” (That is the main character’s name on Minecraft) I started making my own head out of paper and a box.  It was awful.  Didn’t look like him nearly as much as I would’ve liked.  Not to mention that my son hated it! ( Thankfully he was gentle on my feelings and didn’t say it quite like that ;). )  So I had to find a plan B.  I found this printable here.  I would recommend taking it to a print shop to get high quality prints and so you don’t waste your ink! Get it printed on thick photo paper, or cardstock.  Once I had my head put together  TIP: allow yourself some time.  The ends of my prints were cut off so some of the pieces were shorter then they should’ve been so it took some playing around to get it attached just right.  Use glue (I used Mod Podge so I could brush it on how I wanted it,  and get a good hold) to attach your pieces.

That website also has a link to some tools for your Minecraft character to carry around.  We chose the pick ax that he posted here.  We found this incredibly confusing to put together, if you do too, in his comments is a link to a you tube video he made with detailed directions.  It helped a lot!  Put on a blue shirt, jeans and grab your pick ax and they are ready to go!

My next son wanted to be a ghast.  Yes a ghast.  Apparently they aren’t called ghost like I thought they were.  I found a square box.  Everything in the Minecraft world is cubes.  I covered the box in white butcher paper.  Wrapping paper or craft paper would also work.

For him I cut a large hole on the top of the box for his head.  You don’t want it to be so big that it falls off of their shoulders.  Also cut 2 holes in the sides for arms.  I used round lids for my patterns and a box knife to cut them out with.  For extra protection from getting ripped, I put clear packing tape around the openings, just to help keep them protected from being ripped.   After all, kids aren’t know for being gentle on things!

Black paper would work for the face, but I used scraps of vinyl that I had.  Electrical tape would also work great!  Add some white streamers to the bottom, a white shirt underneath, and your little ghast is ready to go!
