W.I.P. Wednesday : Boo!

I love Halloween!

And Guppy loves googly-eyes.

After getting our Halloween decorations up earlier this week, Guppy was rather put out that she didn’t have anything to decorate her room with. Since most of the things we put up were rather fragile/not adapted for  inevitable 5-year-old playing with it while no one is lookingness that will happen if they go in her room, I got thinking about “functional yet decorative” Halloween options.

 

I think these may become part of a felty-moblile, but I’m still not sure. Either way, I’m having fun making them (so easy) and Guppy is having a blast helping me (glueing googly eyes is the bomb, apparently).  They are also “functional” because she’s having fun just playing with them – sorting by number of eyes, scariness, etc. I’m feeling frustrated that I am out of black felt, because I really want to make me some Witchies. Thinking about that one.

What spooky (or, cute!) Halloween-inspired crafts are you working on? Do share!

Do you have any new W.I.P.s in the works? We would love to see what you’re up to! Snap a shot of your  “in progress” masterpiece and add it to the  W.I.P. Wednesday Flickr Pool. Whatever your works-in-progress, have a crafty week, and don’t forget to see what the other Wipsters are working on.

  1. Oh how cute! I’ll have to get creative now! I’ve not thought of making any crafts for halloween…just bought a pumpkin which I want to cook and not carve, but the boyfriend wants to carve it! I guess that’s not much of a craft!
