Tissue Paper Mummy
Oct 11th, 2014 by Craftylocks

The great thing about this craft for little fingers, is that if some of the tissue paper goes on a bit messily and you have sticking out and dangling bits, then all the spookier! Make lots of this little guy and string them up as a decoration, or even give one away with ‘treats’ at Halloween.

This one was made on a chenille stick body – but you could also make a body out of cardboard to wrap. Just use a roll of tissue paper and start wrapping. Add a dab of glue or some sticky tape every now and then to keep the bandages in place. Finish with a couple of googly eyes.

Decorated Halloween Skulls
Oct 2nd, 2014 by Craftylocks

 

I have always been intrigued by the decorated skulls of the Day of the Dead celebrations – taking a skull and turning it into something beautiful. With Halloween approaching, I thought it a perfect excuse to do some of my own.

I was just going to do one, but had such fun, I kept going. If you want to have a go, print this skull shape out.

This one was decorated with crayons …

This is a fun way of decorating shapes, it is called Zentangling and it is a great art technique for older children to have fun with …

One more technique, this time watercolour pencils …

Party Place Name
Sep 16th, 2014 by Craftylocks

My paper crafting helpers have always loved making place names for folk who are coming and deciding where they will sit. This fun idea for place settings helps reduce the clutter on the table and makes the glasses look really cool.

Draw and cut out a shape that will suit your theme, or cut out one of ours from our glass name tags PDF.
Fold it in half and cut a slit on an angle.
Write the name on the shape, or just decorate it. Use the slit to sit it on the glass.

Owl Dress Up
Aug 14th, 2014 by Craftylocks

Who who who needs a great dress-up for book week at school? Two parts here to make a hootrific costume.

To make the vest and the mask you need lots of black, brown and white crepe paper. You also need some card and paper and all those things for joining them together like glue and staples.

Fold the crepe paper up, cut a strip from each color and set it aside for the mask. Then cut feather shapes from them. You will then need a piece of paper big enough to cover the wearers front.
Glue the brown and white feathers alternately round an oval shape in the middle of the paper. Put glue at the top of the feather so they will be able to flutter.
Cover the rest of the paper with black and brown feathers. You could also make this as a cape and not have the tummy section – just all brown and black feathers. Use safety pins to attach it to whatever the owl to be is wearing.
From the rolls of crepe paper cut off earlier, snip a fringe 3/4 the way into each roll.
Unroll the black crepe fringe and glue in a circle around each side of the mask to create an eye. You will need to gather the crepe paper a little for it to go round in a curve so use lots of glue so you can slide it around to the shape you want.

Glue the brown crepe fringe in the same way just slightly in from the line of the black crepe. Repeat with the white crepe fringe.
We added a circle of plain paper to tidy up the edge of the eyes before cutting the eyeholes. Staple on some elastic to fit.
