Spooky Spider Bow Tie - Happy Halloween


Halloween is not a very big occasion here in South Africa. I've never quite understood why that is.

I think the kids here really miss an enjoyable evening of dressing up and the sort of neighbourhood camaraderie that makes getting to know neighbours fun...not to mention missing out on lots of candy
(candy is also not a word generally used here.)

Nowadays living out on a farm makes trick-or-treating a little more trick-y than treat-y since its over 3 kilometers to our nearest neighbour!

But we are having a Halloween theme dinner and so are dressing dad up in this fabulously fun bow tie with a seriously spooky spider button...I'm pretty sure he'll have a...er...trick or two up his sleeve to get us back for embarrassing him thank us for the super cool adornment.

Happy trick or treating!

We heart button hearts...

 

 
This heart decoration was easy to make and is even easier on the eye.
 
Cut out a heart shaped piece of stiff felt or thick cardboard and use a glue gun to attach a ribbon for hanging. Then glue on a variety of pretty buttons - I used a selection of soft pink & white  Incomparable hearts and flowers.
 
 
Its pretty as a wreath on the door...or a decoration for the Christmas tree...
 
 
Or hanging from a door key as a sweet decoration.

The Button Diet


A great way to diet is to spend ones lunchtime coming up with new projects and ideas...and completely forget about eating lunch at all!

This is what Jen did yesterday over lunch while she was putting together combinations of different sized Incomparable buttons to create these fun fashion rings.

Unfortunately by supper time she was so ravenous she had to have second helpings! ;)
