Enjoy making Hallowe’en decorations
Why not get the kids busy this Halloween by making spooky decorations from old clothes, that you can cherish for years to come? You will need:
Old cloth (hankies, towels, t-shirt, pillowcase) Scissors Needle and Thread Old Buttons, sequence, ribbon etc anything lying around! Method: Create spooky templates from used paper or newspaper such as ghosts, skulls and pumpkins. Google has lots of ideas if your not too creative.
Place the templates onto old t-shirts, sweaters, shirts etc and cut out two identical shapes (this will make them sturdier). Adults may have to help here.
Hand sew the two shapes together, if its a ghost you are making its good to leave the bottom open to give the shape flair.
Now using old buttons, sequence and embellishments give your templates some character by adding eyes, a mouth or eye patches etc. Have fun with it!
Sew a loop of ribbon or thread to the top and dangle your creations around the house or use a safety pin for effective badges.
