Halloween Necklaces

Today's craft involved dying penne pasta with food coloring and stringing necklaces. We decided to be festive and used black and orange for Halloween. Once the pasta was dry, the kids counted out 13 noodles and strung them on black yarn (we found using a bobby pin or twist tie is a safe alternative to using a needle). The kids had fun, and it was an educational craft as the kids helped identify colors and count.

Halloween Door Decor

Why hello blog.....sorry I have been neglecting you (I only had a baby and all)! I have been busy this month discovering that I am in fact creative (with a little inspiration from friends and pinterest!).....so I am back to share my creations!


Today's craft was super easy and cute. I made a Halloween decoration out of used cds (goodbye hubby's old Nickleback cd!). All you need is cd/dvds, scrapbook paper, letters, ribbon and craft glue!
