Halloween Felt Decorations ~ Kids Crafts

Seems as though the kids enthusiasm for Halloween is rubbing off on me.

We’ve been spending the past few afternoons making some Halloween decorations for their room, which I must admit I’m pretty impressed with. Where my boys and glue are concerned it could have turned out rather disastrous!!

I know some of you are crafty minded or maybe you just want something to keep the kids entertain one afternoon, so I’ve written a quick how to.

First up you need to gather a few items.

Decide what spooky felties you want hanging from the mobile. And create some templates, on card if available.

Grab the stick and bakers twine / thread,

Cut 8 lengths of twine/thread.

Select 8 felt decorations, {the remaining 8 will be used for the Halloween ‘Boo’ garland}

Secure one end to each felt decoration to a piece of thread/twine.

Tie the ends to the stick.

Hang up the decoration.
