How to make a Halloween Leaf Wreath
We’ve been making some really cute things with Conkers this year – It all started with a white pen… we found these pens in a local stationery store, (you can find them in the links at the foot of this post) and they can write on glass and metal, and CONKERS!
We were just having a bit of fun with conkers, and making a pile of little skulls, and it’s just grown from there!
Instagram rather loved our bowl of these little skeleton chums, so we just kept making them, and decided to DO something with them, see video below – we made a Halloween Leaf Wreath! We are going to hang these on the front door, and actually have made a couple, so youngest has one on his bedroom door too! (to ward of his big brother apparently… So – you will need:
- Paper Plates
- Glue gun here in the UK and in the US
- Hole punch
- Pen for writing on conkers – available here in the UK, here in the US
Well; that’s the weekend… conkers and scary skulls; this is what I’ve been doing with 12yo whilst 13yo seems to be drowning in homework – hardly fair right? So we’ve left him to it at home and walked up to tennis; the weather is wonderful and we’ll be scrumpy-ing some little apples we’ve spotted on the way home… Oh incidentally: we have a “plan” for our conker skulls; will keep you posted… Meanwhile do keep your #halloweencrafts ? coming for judge @innerchildfun #kidscrafts101 and your #sgiew_potplant shots too so that @komoonko can find them ? . #sgiew #conkers #autumn #littlestoriesofmylife #flatlayforever #fromwhereistand #potplant #cactus #cactuslover #slowlivingforlife .
