Handmade Occasions – Halloween
I’ve compiled another list of fun things for gifts, decorations and celebrations for your home and family. This week I was inspired and interested in DIY tutorials for Halloween!
I’ve only explored needle felting in the most basic way, but this looks like a great project to delve a little deeper. This Pumpkin Felting Tutorial from Hand Made By Brynne is full of great step by step photos.
I have seen several of these cheese cloth ghosts floating (ha!) around Pinterest, but this Floating Cheesecloth Ghost from Love and Laundry got me because it uses cornstarch to make it stiff. Seems like a great project to do with kids and so much fun to customize (arms or no arms?). Not to mention a fun science experiment for older ones.
For me, if I’m looking for a quicker wooly pumpkin, a knit one is what I need (I think I have some orange handspun perfect for these little guys). This Knitted Pumpkin Pattern from Natural Suburbia looks quick and easy. Great for a instant gratification project. You can also download her Halloween Knits ebook on Ravelry for free.
I spotted these awesome Bats by Made last year, and I have been thinking about them ever sense! If any of these decorations get made for this year, this has to be the one. I love how natural they look. If you have older kiddos, it would be a great way to learn some about bats.
