A Spooky Kind of Blog!

Hello Crafters, how are you all ... are you looking forward to a nice weekend? I can't believe we are only two weeks away from the end of October and Halloween! With Halloween Parties and Trick or Treating becoming more popular each year, I thought it might be nice to share a couple of ideas with you for some fun, simple, spooky projects that you could enjoy making with your little ones.

One idea is for a Trick or Treat decoration and the other is for a Trick or Treat Spooky Goodie bag. These are very simple projects and all you will need is as follows:

A Bee Crafty Halloween Die Cut Kit, (99p) which contains the following die cut/embossed items: 2 ghosts, 2 tombstones, 2 orange pumpkins and 2 green pumpkins.
Die-cut scalloped and plain circles in your chosen colours.
Card Candi
Small double-sided sticky foam pads
A length of narrow ribbon
Craft glue
Double sided tape
Small clear cellophane bags
Selection of spooky sweets

Bee Crafty Halloween Kit
To make the Trick or Treat Decoration: Fold a small length of ribbon in half to make a loop and glue/tape to the top of a scalloped circle. Then glue/tape a plain circle on top.

Then decorate with your chosen spooky image

     Small bags of sweets can be attached to the back, if so desired

The Trick or Treat Goodie Bag is just as simple, fold a scalloped cirle in half and decorate with your chosen spooky image and some card candi. Then glue the folded circle to both sides of a cellophane bag filled with spooky treats.

All the items used to make these items are available from Bee Crafty, so why not have a bit of spooky fun with your little ones this weekend!

Happy Crafting
