Here are a few Halloween crafts and easy to assemble decorating ideas, that I XOXO, discovered perhaps a tad late, that I could alter and adapt for different seasons:
Check out how blogger Alisa Burke transformed kraft-paper tubes into little monsters with great amounts of style. She has a great way with color and paint. I think I can definitely apply this craft to Pilgrims, Native Americans, reindeer or elves.
Martha Stewart -- these pasta anatomical collages aren't just for Halloween. I could see doing a project like this anytime in school. It's educational and fun, more than scary. A bunch of these would look all in similar frames or in shadow boxes, labeled with medical titles such as: vertebrae fusili. Just thinking bout a pasta turkey or perhaps use "angel" hair in manger scene for star of Bethlehem.
Butch Anthony, cut an image out from a magazine or blow up a family photo and then place the pasta on top in a skeletal fashion.
Country Living -- for some craft inspiration. For Christmas, I would fill glass vessels with fawn-a. I have a herd of flocked and plastic and glittered deer, and I'd place them on moss, on pedestals, sitting down, etc.
Elle's Studio. Thought it was decked out with a BOO theme -- check it out on the PDF here. -- a blank book, like a blank page, can be anything. And these books, once personalized can sit on a mantle or anywhere for decoration.
Happy Halloween and happy crafting y'all. :))))
