Trick-or-Treat Paper City Halloween Craft I’ve been so busy for the last two weeks, I haven’t had time to make many new crafts, so we printed out the Paper City style trick-or-treat scene from last year. The fall leaves were so nice in our yard today, the kids took the paper people outside to practice up on their trick-or-treat lines. So if you want a little Halloween project, feel free to print out the PDF template below. Template: Click on the image below, then print.

Chouette The first kit of the new year is this deceivingly simple looking little owl to expand the bird-population in 3EyedBear’s universe. We all know owls are one of the wisest creatures and this one certainly will be one day too. Thing is: she’s still very young and inexperienced, but she compensates that with a passion for reading thick books while you sleep. It don’t hurt to have her posted in your bedroom since owls hunt for little scary creatures by inborn instinct. (click one of the images to download Howie) Collect them all!

Now let’s send some pictures of one of the owls and share how you are taking care of them. -Darla from delicious Bakingdom created 3 Harry Potter-themed owls here for downloading. TAGS: None

Chances are you have a box of leftover odds and ends of wood that can be turned into something cute for the holidays. My husband has a huge box of wood pieces that he throws leftovers into after he’s done making a project. These pieces can range from tiny little scraps to half a two by four. Then we used pieces of Popsicle craft sticks for the brim of the hats on some snowmen, others he cut little slivers of scrap wood to use as the brims. On the outer corner of each of the taller snowmen you’ll want to drill a small hole so you can run string, ribbon, or wire through to hang them. Paint the snowmen before putting them together. Then paint your hats in the desired colors. Now paint happy snowman faces on the wood. Once all the paint is dry you can glue your snowmen together with wood glue, hot glue or any other adhesive you have on hand that will work on wood. The two taller snowmen should be behind the small one. You want the drilled holes on the outer corners.

I thought it was cute and looked extremely easy there is no paint or glitter involved so I am happy :) Materials needed: Scrapbook paper (I used thick paper that had a cotton like texture to it with glitter it at the Dollar Store) Thin wire Glue Beads (optional) Method: Cut three pieces of wire (approximately 10 inches each) and bend the top of each wire into a loop. I used a dab of hot glue to attach the 3 wires together and then wrapped a small piece of paper around the glue to hide it. Draw three circles of gradually increasing size on the back of the scrapbook paper. Cut the circles out leaving approximately 1/2 an inch outside the circle and then carefully rip the paper along the line to give a rough edge. Cut from the side of the circle to the middle. Wrap the paper into a cone and glue the edge down. Enjoy.
