Over the past year I have been fortunate enough to donate to our school and the local food pantry. We have donated back to school snacks, toys and now crafting tools. I love to craft and having enough art supplies makes it even better. Fiskars is joining with Champion for Kids and is supporting getting more crafting supplies into the hands of kids.
I was able to make a nice donation t0 our school of much needed supplies. Everything from Fiskars Scissors and rulers, to Crayola Crayons and makers and ‘ Glue. Serenity’s new teacher was so excited to have the supplies for her classroom and to pass around the school.
After buying all of the fun crafting tools to pass out to the school, I was excited to make something for the house. I choose a fun project from Fiskars to help me get started. I used the wreath that they made to get some ideas of a fun Halloween wreath of my own.
Because my Walmart was only just getting their Halloween decorations, I wasn’t not able to find small skeletons, but I was able to find some really neat skulls and glittery spiders.
First I needed to dye the cheese cloth. I used dye I had one hand, so it was not exactly black, but more of purplish in some areas and greenish in other. I love the effect. Once I wrapped the cheese cloth around my wreath, then pinning into place, I used my Fiskars scissors to add to the ripped and tattered effect.
I could not find lichen moss and was only able to find bright green spanish moss. Since this was not the look I was going for, I mixed my Spanish moss with black paint and made it much darker, creating a dead effect.
Then came the gluing. Using my hot glue gun, I glued my decorations into place.
Let the whole thing dry and it is ready to go. Perfect for adding a bit of fright to fright to any Halloween decor.
Once you are ready to get crafting, be sure to check out the supplies you can get from Fiskars, but also, why not join in the Champion for Kids Simple Service Project and grab a few extra scissors or other crafting gear for donation.
