I’m thrilled to be participating in the Daily Buzz Moms 9×9 this month and share with you some Halloween decorating that has been going on around the Food Snob house. A few weeks ago, I shared this decoupage pumpkin craft that I was able to do during Baby Snob’s naptime. It really got me inspired to do some more decorating around the house that could be completed during naptime (in 1 hour or less). Thus was born the Naptime Halloween Crafts!
I spent less than $25, used 3 naptimes and decorated my house with some festive Halloween flair! Here are the details for each project:
For the dining room table centerpiece project, I repurposed 2 mason jars and a vase. I purchased the black and orange glitter balls, orange and black sequins ribbon and orange candle from Micheal’s. To make these, simple cut the ribbon to match the inner circumference of your jar or vase and bend it to fit. Then, add the glitter balls and candle. This takes less than 15 minutes!
Here is a view from our dining room table (ignore the messy kitchen in the back ground. I was busy crafting!)
For this I purchased a twig wreath, pumpkin foil decorations and spool of ghost ribbon from the Dollar Tree. The green spider web ribbon came from Micheal’s, the mini pumpkins from Aldi’s and I used a hot glue gun and scissors I already had. To make this, I simply wrapped the two ribbons around the wreath side-by-side and secured at the end with hot glue. I then used hot glue to adhere the pumpkin foils.
This was actually the most time-consuming craft. This required two packages of pumpkin foil decorations from Dollar Tree and needle and thread I already owned. I simply sewed the pumpkins by hand onto the thread and hung on our fireplace.
Another super-quick decor idea! I found the frame in a $1 bin at Micheal’s and printed off the art from this blog. I was able to resize it in Photoshop to fit the tiny frame.
There you have it! 3 naps, $25 dollars and a house ready for Halloween! The best part was that NONE of this was stressful. Each project is so simple, you worry about having things strewn about because you are in the middle of a project.
How do you find time to decorate your house for holidays?
