  • Native American Costume 4 of 15
    Native American Costume
    This darling Native American inspired costume is quick and easy to create for your child! What you will need: A fabric of choice-suggest a fabric that does not unravel easily-Ribbon for the headband and Feathers of choice -Scissors -Optional: hot glue gun or sewing machine. we used a dress folded in half laid out on the fabric to be our cutting pattern. Be sure to add about 2-5 in. each side to allow for side ties. We then fringed the bottom well as fringed the sides in1 inch wide, and a few inches deep, depending on size of dress you are making. From this point we tied the front to back all the way down the sides, ensuring to double knot for security! We then did a simple strip of hot glue across the shoulder pieces to secure in place. Sewing is an option in place of any of these steps. The sweet little headband ia a quick band that could be worn over and over. We hot glued the back of a pre-measured piece of lace then added feathers to the front using the same method!

  • Spider Web Hoops 15 of 15
    Spider Web Hoops
    We made these simple "Spider Webs" to spook up your home in just moments! Keeping the yarn taught so as to prevent slipping, we wrapped yarn every which way around a single half of an embroidery hoop. Multiple hoops can be combined as well to add variation. If smaller children are having tension trouble, we suggest running the outside of the hoop with stick glue which will help hold the yarn. Get crazy with it...wrapping as much or as little as you like, even using multiple colors of yarn! Hang these quick webs from your doors in place of wreaths, from fireplace mantles,etc...
