So last night, I made two small crafts.
Project 1 - Small Halloween BannerOne idea came from a banner on Pinterest. It connected to a blog which said you could make fancy looking banners using cupcake lines. So, I traced some hexagonal shapes and small circles from red paper.
Then I took some cupcake liners I had and tried to flatten them. They didn't look very good. So I used some wavy scissors to make the edges more interesting.
I glued the little red circles into the middle of the cupcake liners. I glued the liners to the hexagonal shapes.
Then, I had to find a font I liked - found this Trinigan Font, which was a free download. I made the word BOO 125 point in Microsoft Word. I put two spaces between each word to make it easier to cut them out.
I printed the letters out, cut them out, and then used a pencil to trace over them. This made an impression on the red paper and I colored it in with a black pen.
But that was too hard to read.
So, out came my trusty paintbrush and black paint. Let everything dry and they look good.
I still have to find some ribbon to hang it up.
|And here's what the final looked like.|
Project 2 - Googly Cups for the Halloween Party
This one's pretty simple. Buy a bag of crazy, multi-sized googly eyes. Glue them on. Restack for party. Could not be easier and honestly, they look pretty fun!!
|Glue googly eyes onto the purple cups. And they still stack.|
If you are having a Halloween party (or just want to dress up some cups for fun, I highly recommend the googly eye!
Anyone doing other fun projects with googly eyes?
