Halloween Ideas to Try!

Hello Glitterinas!

Welcome to Pink Glitter!  I am so glad you stopped by today!

Halloween is getting so close.....

I am finished with most of the decorations that I am going to make for Halloween this year.....but there are a couple more quick things I wanted to make for the grand~darlings!

These ideas are cute little extras that I saw on Facebook, and Pinterest.....and then I wanted to use up the ghost ribbon and plastic bats I had!

A head band will start us off......

Cut a small ghost from a thin, white sheet of craft foam.  I cut three ghosts.....two for head bands and one for a pin.  Glitter the ghosts.  I used clear, iridescent glitter for these little ghosts.



Googly eyes for the head band ghosts and black glitter eyes and mouth for the pin ghost.

I had some ribbon that is partially spandex, so it's stretchy......perfect for head bands!  I used a store bought head band to know the correct length.....snip, snip....then hot glued the pieces into circles.  Next hot glue a ghost onto each head band.



The ghosts needed a bow.....so they each got one!  The head bands I saw on Pinterest also had cute little flowers on their bows.  I used some small, orange flowers I had in my stash.


The pin ghost got its pin hot glued on the back and a little black bow tie on the front.



Cute, huh?!

Next on our crafting agenda are some little pumpkins I saw online.  The ones I saw were magnet decorations.  I wanted to make mine into necklaces for the grands.  Here's my attempt.....

I picked out a few flat, glass rocks (I believe they are called vase fillers.) , traced around them, and cut out the circles.



I drew jack o lantern faces on the paper and mod podged the paper on the back of the glass so the faces  would show through.


I punched some one inch circles out of Halloween paper, cut some very short pieces of green ribbon for leaves, then glued the ribbon and leaves on the back of the glass "pumpkins". Lastly, I glued on the small circles.


Tah dah!  

These turned out to be favorites of the grands......I liked them, too.  Crazy easy and fun!


The idea I had seen was for magnets so I glued magnet buttons on the back of some of the glass pieces and here they are......


Two cute little pumpkins with chenille stems and a green Frankenstein.  Fun!

The last craft project today is totally batty!  



It's a hair bow.  Begin with a simple bow......


......and another bow tied from narrower ribbon......


Hot glue them together and add a bat!


Hot glue a hair clip on the back........"bat"tastic!  You have a fun Halloween hair bow!

That was easy, too, wasn't it?

I made one with polka dot ribbon and one with zebra stripe ribbon and then......


.....had a cutie patootie who had spent the night with Gigi and Pops model "her" new hair bow!  She liked the polka dots best, so sister gets the zebra one!  I got hugs and kisses for the new hair bow!


I know, I know.....shameless exploitation by Gigi!

Thank you so much for stopping by and crafting with me today.  

I hope you are all ready for Halloween at your house.....but if you still need an idea or two, maybe these will help!  Give one or all of them a try!



Until next time,
Tammy
