DIY KIDS: Some halloween crafty ideas
Now that Oisin is a bit more clued into Halloween (he turned 3 last Sunday-can’t believe it!), I’ve been on the lookout for some crafts to spook up our house a little. He brought home a whole bag of his creations today from Montessori so they’ll be getting pride of place on the walls this weekend! I love these two projects below. The Shocking Silhouettes one looks seriously easy. The Halloween Hang-ups look a little more time-consuming but they look really cool, don’t you think?

When my sister Bridin & I both lived in Dublin we had a little pumpkin carving ritual going on – well we did it two years in a row – so maybe not quite a ritual but it was great fun…. She’s coming to visit this weekend with her boys so we’re hoping to get a little bit of time together to carve some creations & maybe have a glass or two of something to invoke the muse! I love the look of this one below, but it does look fairly labour intensive and intricate, we’ll see, if I’m feeling inspired I might go for it! Or we may just go for nice & simple Jack O’ Lanterns.
Lastly, and the cutest of all I think is a little Halloween DIY project for the tiny ones in your life – aren’t they adorable? These come via a very cute blog called Paper & String. You’ll find all the free patterns and instructions here.
