1. What´s easier than a Halloween themed painted rocks/sticks/acorn party?
- Search for your natural treasure in nature (on the ground off course).
- Clean your treasures with a rag.
- Paint your treasures.
- Paint or mark faces on them in black for Halloween.
2. Halloween cards made with watercolors, scrap paper, scrap fabric and stamps.
- Fold scrap paper in half.
- Use watercolors to paint a picture on your card.
- Wait 10 minutes for your card to dry.
- Add holes with hole punch, stickers, stamps and/or scrap fabric. Anything goes!
- Send the card to a friend!
3. Countdown to Halloween bookmark. Read a Halloween or Halloween inspired story each night until Halloween. It´s a nice way to make the one magical night last all month long.
- Cut heavy cardstock paper about 2 inches wide and 6 inches long.
- Hole punch a hole into the top midsection of your bookmark.
- And a calendar onto your bookmark, 6-7 rows and 5-6 columns.
- Decorate your bookmark.
- Tie ribbon or fabric onto your bookmark. You can add a bead as we did here to hide your knot.
- Make 31 (3¨x1.5¨) pouches from cardstock paper, (I used burlap paper cardstock).
- Use posterboard or glue two pieces of 12x12 cardstock together vertically for background.
- Glue pouches one by one onto the background on three sides to leave top part open.
- Make 11 rows for the 31 days, leaving the last day at the bottom in its own row.
- Insert a easy pull out note for your Halloween activity of the day, see some of mine below.
- Decorate your calendar.
- Mark days off using Washi tape so you can use your calendar year after year.
