En­joy mak­ing Hal­lowe’en dec­o­ra­tions

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
