Halloween is one of those holidays that just makes you want to be crafty, don’t you think? It lets you be whimsical and fun which is sometimes a little bit hard with your “everyday decor” or some of the other holidays. Today I am sharing a very inexpensive, very festive and very easy little Halloween decoration idea project that will add a perfect touch of whimsy to your home this Halloween!
All you need for this project is some festive napkins (or tissue paper cut to size), scissors & twine or wire.
I’m guessing some of you have seen these before but they are usually used as a faux flower kind of a project. I wanted them to just be a big burst of Halloween all up in here! They obliged.
Here is how I made them:
1. Choose your napkins according to the color scheme/theme you want to convey. For one “burst” you’ll need 6 large & two small, contrasting napkins (or tissue paper). 2. Unfold the small napkins to a single layer and place on top of each other. Fold both together accordion-style. Trim each end to a point. 3. Unfold small napkins again and place on top of large napkins which have also been unfolded to a single layer and placed on top of each other. 4. Fold all napkins together like an accordion, tie middle with twine or wire and trim ends of large napkins into a point. 5. Gently pull up each later of napkin on one side until they are all “fluffed” like you want them. 6. ”Fluff” the other side and you’re done!
I made three of them in different patterns (but same black, orange and white color scheme) and attached them to a wide houndstooth patterned ribbon and hung them from the door leading to my basement.
Love! And my kids were super impressed by them.
How fun would these be all around at your Halloween party this year?
This craft is an oldie but a goodie when adapted for some Halloween festivities!
