Yep, it’s that time of year again, when I drag out my cobwebbed skeletons, my cystic acned looking gourds and of course my crazy costumed wigs with crunchy leafs mashed in them because the new Christmas of Holidays is here; HALLOWEEN!
When did this ghoulish jubilee become so flipping out of control? From costume parades, harvest hay rides and haunted house tours filling up our October calendars; it’s nice to dial it back a bit and relax with your kids while whipping up some fun crafts.
Every year, I look forward to finding easy and fun projects to do with my little kiddos. So, I was super excited to join my fellow bloggers and the talented editors at the offices of Woman’s Day Magazine for their Halloween DIY Event. I knew these were my kind of ladies when they escorted me to their crafting headquarters through this creepy door adorned with bulging eyes.
This gifted artsy fartsy creative team knows exactly how to get their Halloween CRAFT ON! They gave us new pointers on how to create custom spooky birdhouses and methods to pimp out your Holiday Pumpkins.
The best tip of the morning? We were told to layer adhesive photo corners as a faux roof for our haunted houses. Adding each shingle took time but I mentioned to Susan that the repetitive motion was actually quite relaxing and therapeutic. “Yes, It’s almost like zoning into a meditative state” said Susan.
As soon as I left the event, I zipped right into Michael’s and picked up more supplies and had a fun afternoon with my daughter and son creating their own spooky houses. So, quick before the harvest frenzy gets away from you! Pick up this month’s Woman’s Day magazine and check out some of their awesome ghoulish crafts to do with YOUR kids on this long Holiday weekend.
