I saw this craft project over at Bloesem Kids and knew it would be a fun little project to do with the girls. We don’t get too crazy decorating for Halloween, but I wanted to have a little spooky-ish touches here and there, so I remembered that little project and we made our own. I didn’t follow the instructions because I just went off memory (it is a fairly simple idea). Now that I am reading the directions, what I did differently was that I connected the pipe cleaners into a really long one, wrapped the yarn, and then shaped the word. I am sure either way works just fine. Though the way we did it, we could easily unravel the word to make a new one, which I kinda like.
Okay, so our sign isn’t quite spooky, but I thought it was just the right little thing to get festive and still remain stylish and match our home. Orange and black doesn’t really match us. We have a few more little things to craft up today to add a few more scary touches here and there, as well as make a pretty Autumnal wreath.
How do you decorate for the Autumn and Halloween?

i love this idea! so fun! mums, pumpkins and a wreath are about as much as i do… oh, and fall smelling candles.
perfect timing. me and my little fellow are going to JoAnns to get a couple supplies to make some decorations. i'm like you., i don't do a lot lot of decorating for halloween.
love the colors you chose.
I love this idea. And those colors are so fun. I think I have a new project on my hands!
so simple. so cute.
great idea! i love this time of year, but most of the decorations i see around i would not use.
my mother made hand leaves with my daughter and hung them on a window. i might make some more and make a little garland.
Cute idea! Perfect kid-friendly seasonal craft… I think I'll be storing this away for future years 🙂
Hmm my husband and I just bought our own home, and I'm with you in that weird orange tints and black just aren't really us, so I decorate with LOTS of candles, different colored pumpkins or squash on the mantle/table, pretty autumn wreaths, and all my cozy throw blankets!
so cute! looks like a good project for preschoolers!
Amazing ! So simple and beautiful <3
i think i have to make a bunch of these, asap!
Ahhh, this is so cute! I bet your girls had a blast making this with you! 🙂
so cute! I love that and I like that it is not the typical black and orange….as those colors don't really go with the theme of my home sweet home either…thanks for sharing!
I love that project. I think your “boo” is perfect. 🙂
