Last year I decided I was going to be a diction-fairy for Halloween. I had been making book page wreaths for my winter boutique and this just kinda evolved out of hours spent with a glue gun and rolled book pages. If you have made a book page wreath the this should be pretty simple. If you haven't made a book page wreath then it's still pretty easy just with a bit more reading. Rather than make a new one, I'm just breaking down how I made it last year so if it gets confusing just let me know! Book Page Tutu
Fall is like the Super Bowl of the crafting world. seriously. I think there are more fall crafts than any other season. Just sayin. BUT I for one, do not mind one bit!! Fall is such a pretty time of year.
Learn how to Make G low-in-the-Dark Slime like we made the other day. My kids ranked this as one of their favorite of our summer projects so far. Even I was enjoying playing with it. It just feels so cool. We added a few drops of glow in the dark craft paint to get the glow-in-the-dark effect. The more borax solution you add, the stiffer your slime will become.
MONDAY, AUGUST 15, 2011 | Comments: 32 If you’ve ever had a group of kids sitting around your dinner table – you know that candles are not a practical or safe option. However, I am a believer that children appreciate the same details that adults enjoy so I try to create interesting lighting options for the table that are child-friendly.
I have been trying to make more of an effort to have seasonal changes in the house, to change the daily objects of our gaze in keeping with what is happening outside. The temptation is to call it decorating, but I don't want to use that word because the small changes I am talking about come not so much from a desire to celebrate any particular holidays (although that's there, of course), but from a more deep-seated need for a connection to the passage of time. Barring the opening and closing of windows, our apartment stays the same through the seasons. Summer brings with it only air conditioning.
For weeks now our boys have been begging to "Halloweenify" the house, but we're making them wait until October 1st, which is this weekend. To help get the festivities started we wanted to find a fun Halloween craft. After seeing some of the cute projects where people turn jars into ghosts, we wondered if we could put a ghost in a jar!
