Don’t forget to share this with someone who loves Halloween!


Materials:

Copper Striped Pumpkins


If you want to decorate for fall, you are probably going to need some pumpkins. Instead of having some of the same-old orange gourds hanging around, why not opt for these pretty white pumpkins and decorate them with copper stripes?

The copper accents will really add that special touch without taking much time at all. Check out this super easy DIY project below!



Materials Needed:

  • White mini pumpkins
  • Copper metallic tape
  • Scissors

Directions:

  1. There really aren't a lot of steps involved with this one!
  2. All you have to do is decide where you would like tape to sit and cut it to size. It is easier to do this before you start sticking them to the pumpkin so make sure you pre-cut all your pieces before you begin.
  3. Peel the backing off the tape, carefully stick it to the pumpkin, smoothing the tape as you go. Repeat until you have your desired look!
  4. Make a few of them and create a centerpiece to have the prettiest table around this fall!

Pom pom bunnies are cutest little crafts out there and would be great to try out with your kids. Their soft pom poms and tiny button noses will be leaving your kids with a big smile on their face!

  • clear thread
  • hot glue
  • cotton balls
  • scissors

Directions:

  1. Wrap yarn around all four fingers to create your body sized pom pom. Keep wrapping until you have a thick amount of yarn.
  2. Carefully slip the looped yarn off your fingers and cut a separate 5 inch piece of yarn. Slip it underneath the looped yarn and wrap it around to the front, tying it REALLY TIGHT.
  3. Slip your scissors through the loops and cut until it starts to form a pom pom. Then trim it up until the ends are all even looking.
  4. For the smaller pom pom (head), do the same process but use only three fingers to wrap the yarn around.
  5. Cut out some ear shapes out of gray felt and a smaller shape out of pink.
  6. Layer the pink on top of the gray and pinch the bottom. Glue the pinched portion together.
  7. Glue the ears to the head of the bunny along with the black beads for the eyes.
  8. For the whiskers, loop some clear thread through your pink pony bead and tie it. Snip the ends to shorten the whiskers, then glue the pink bead to the face.
  9. And finally, glue the head on to the body and a cotton ball on for a tail.

DIY Giant Paper Dahlia


Every event needs some décor to look attractive and alive and what better way to add life to the game than to decorate it with some remarkable and gorgeous giant dahlias. You can create giant dahlias at home using white or colored papers. They would perfectly decorate your place for a special event such as weddings, New Year's Eve, etc.

You can create giant dahlias at home by following the below steps.

Materials:
  • A large circle of cardboard (you can use a plate as a mold)
  • Colored construction paper . You can use card stock or even scrapbooking paper
  •  Adhesive stick 
  •  Hot Glue Gun
  •  Scissors or paper cutter. I recommend a paper cutter for this project as it will produce nice clean lines and it’s much quicker for the job

Process:
  1. Take the colored construction paper and cut them into 4 x 4 squares
  2. Turn the pieces of paper into cone shapes. For this step, you need to bring the opposite ends of the square in the center point and glue the entire contour with a glue stick. Repeat the level until you have enough cones. 
  3.  Now take the cones and glue them around the cardboard circle. Remember that you need to leave some space in between the cones. For this step, you will need to use hot glue gun so that the cones stick entirely with the cardboard.
  4. Once the first layer is done, repeat the process by gluing the other cones in between the spaces that you left in the first layer.
  5.  Continue placing the cones layer by layer until all the space is covered in the cardboard circle.
  6.  Once all the layers are done use a different colored cone to form the center of the dahlias.
Tip:
  • Use different colored papers to add effects to the flowers
