I wanted to post this project early, so there's lots of time to whip some up before Halloween! Every year I make special bags of candy for the littlest trick-or-treaters who come to my home. This year I'm filling the bags with mini Oreos, Graham Cracker Bears, mini Marshmallows, Gold Fish crakers, soft Twizzlers, mini coloring books and packages of stickers. Hopefully alot of things younger children will like!
Here's my supply list:
mini kraft paper bags
flowers (I used Kaiser Craft)
1. pleat the crepe paper and staple about 3 times (don't worry, the ribbon will cover the staples, if you have a sewing machine, pleat and sew crepe paper in the center)
2. cut the tulle into squares and layer:
ribbon, tulle, carnival ticket and flower, staple onto crepe paper
3. add the plastic spider and glue onto flower (I used Aleene's original tacky glue)
4. after the glue has dried on the spider, glue the crepe paper to the kraft paper bag
These were so simple to make and there's lots of variations that you could make too! Instead of a spider try a button, or a pumpkin sticker. If you don't want to use flowers, little velvet leaves would be cute too! Hope this might inspire you to get out the craft supplies and make something cute!
