Each month, Heidi at Blue Eyed Blessings has a craft challenge and it's back!! She took the summer off, but she's back with this month's theme -Halloween or Fall. Great for me because I don't have many Halloween decorations-or Fall for that matter-a perfect opp0rtunity to get my house ready for my 5 little goblins and the spookiness coming at the end of the month.
I saw the cutest idea over at Not So Idle Hands and I started saving my glass jars right away. I knew the girls would love it and they did!! They had fun making them and you would have thought I gave them the world when we put the lights in.
Aren't they adorable??? They're right on the corner of my mantle.
Emily at Not So Idle Hands gives great directions for making these-she has lots of great Halloween ideas! She used orange tissue paper but the day I stopped at Target they had none .......course I didn't go crazy looking with the 5 kids and hubby who kept saying "why do you need orange tissue paper?"........ this after constantly asking me if I still wanted all those glass jars! I spotted a package of orange napkins and grabbed them -perfect and easy. The girls loved using the Mod Podge to put the napkins on. We used black construction paper to make the faces (next time I'd use black tissue paper, I think the construction paper was kind of heavy). I used ribbon for the top of the pumpkins-thought it would kind of look like leaves. Still not sure of the ribbon-they kind of look like little pumpkin ninjas :)
We love the new additions to 7 All Together!
Head on over to Blue Eyed Blessings to check out some other great Halloween and Fall projects.
