I was going
to make a cheesy joke about skeletons and break dancing, but then I stopped
myself. Halloween decorations are everywhere, people! The other day
I was bopping around the Dollar Tree and picked up a wreath, some ribbon and
these skeleton drinking straws. Wreaths are a fun project for kids to
decorate because anything goes. Here are a few ideas....
wreath was jazzed up with Purple Folk Art Paint, Purple Extreme Glitter,
Sequins and Mod Podge. To make base coating the wreath easier, dip your
paint brush in water before adding paint so it seeps into the cracks and
crevices. Leave to dry and add a coat or two of Purple Extreme Glitter.
favorite part about these little guys is their limbs move and wiggle. Cut
the straws to fit inside the wreath--wedge them in or use hot glue to keep them
in place. Add stars around the edge with dots of Mod Podge.
a bow tie to the bottom and hang it from string (and cue the Monster Mash song
just for fun).
