I like making crafts when I can find the time, especially for occasions like Halloween. These simple DIY Halloween papercraft make cute gifts for your child to give to their friends at school.
Because of allergies and such, my son’s Kindergarten class won’t allow us to bring food as a treat, so Brody and I made these fun paper treats for his classmates. They can add it to their Halloween decorations at home, or simply just play with it. We added ours to a Halloween tree I made. (see link below)
Simple DIY Halloween Papercraft
Only 3 items used to make this papercraft.
1. Paper Straws – I purchased these at a boutique, but I’m sure you can find some similar at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.
2. Halloween Confetti is what these are called. I believe I picked them up at Hobby Lobby.
3. Glue Dots – I used what I had in my craft room from Stampin’ Up! but these can also be found at any craft store. Just use 2 or 3 glue dots to attached confetti to straw…and boom – you’re done!!
Here’s the kicker – I made up a cute centerpiece with all the straws and plan on giving it to Mrs. Knickerbocker (my son’s kindergarten teacher) to place on her desk. If she wants, she can distribute these however she wants. I’m going there today to give it to her and will take a picture with the centerpiece on her desk or where ever she prefers. Just hope she’s okay with the skeleton. I’ll let you know!!
For the centerpiece, I used a glass jar, tulle for the bow, and a printable that I found online, and white and orange shred.
Mrs. Knickerbocker loved it!!
So what do you think? Simple? What sort of Halloween treats are you making this year? I need more ideas for next year!!
