Halloween Light Jars #Bostik Challenge

In my previous post I wrote about creating some Halloween place mats that my niece Little M and I created for her Halloween Party.

We also made some Halloween light jars to light up the room and give the party a spooky Halloween feel.

Making these Halloween Light jars are so easy and they really look very effective.The jars can be painted in any neon colour and they look super with battery powered T lights in them to light them up. The activity is fairly simple to do with children but supervision will be required. The painting part is the messy bit and I strongly advise that you cover your work space with lots of news paper and get your little ones to put on an apron or pinny.

For the Halloween light jars you will need:

Glass Jars
Acrylic Neon paint colour of your choice
Halloween themed ribbon to fit neck of glass jar.
Bostik glue
Black marker pen and pencil
Paint pot
Paint Brush
Battery powered T light

To see how to create these awesome Halloween Light Jars  watch the video below:

Halloween Place Mats #Bostik Challenge

Its that time of the month when the Bostik bloggers craft box drops through the letter box. This months theme is Halloween. The box had many Halloween themed crafty bits in it like plastic spiders, ribbons, foam bats and skulls and Halloween paper. Although its mid of September and October is not far off I am wishing that the Indian summer we are enjoying carries on and Autumn stays at bay, so its really hard to think about Halloween.

The last couple of months my regular crafter my niece Little M  has been absent but I am pleased that she is joining me for this post. Little M and I dived into the box to see what we could create. Little M enjoyed putting on the spider rings that were in the box, personally they gave me the creeps. We decided that we would make some place mats with a Halloween theme and Little M could enjoy a Halloween lunch of some red roasted pepper and houmous sandwich, some quavers, spiderweb jaffa cakes and Orange juice. You can see the place mat we made below and YES that awful black thing on the cup is the plastic spider that Little M was playing with!!!! The place mat is really simple but it made little M really happy.

Equipment you will need for Halloween Place mat:

Bostik Glue
1 sheet Black A4 card
1 sheet A5 black funky foam
Pre cut Halloween themed paper strips (I think these were the strips you make paper chains with)

To make the place mat:

1. Separate the Halloween paper strips from the sheet.
2. On the A4 black card stick all four strips on the outer edges with bostik glue to create a frame.If the strips are too long cut them to size.

3. In the centre stick the black funky foam to add strength to the mat.

Use the mat for a Halloween themed party.

Little M really enjoyed using this mat for a pre Halloween lunch. We are going to make a few more so that she can use them for a Halloween party..
