I had my Cousin's girls (they are really mine she'd just borrowing them LOL) overnight this weekend! Of course we had to get crafty! I saw these paper mache skulls at our local Lens Mill and immediately saw some crafty potential!
I already had some Halloween paper but along with that I bought some fancy tissue paper and Halloween Napkins. The girls had anything in my craft room at their disposal! I made some homemade "Modge Podge" by mixing plain white glue with water in a ratio of 1:1, and off to the races they went designing their skulls! Both the girls chose to use parts of the Halloween napkins and I decided on tissue paper. Of course we all had to use these great black spiders I got at Michaels.
I love that we all had different ideas as to how we wanted to cover them but similar ideas about the "head bands" they would wear. After the girls finished these they moved on to to making some mixed media canvas's and cards! We had a blast and as always I love the time I get to spend with them! They are great kids, well behaved and a joy to be around!
Chat at you soon,
