Make a Halloween Candle Holder


This is a super easy project to make.  All you need is a few supplies (you can get them at your Bonney Lake Ben Franklin), and an hour to create the fun spiderweb candle holder.



Molly painted the wood candle holder with black acrylic paint. When it was dry she drew a spiderweb with a white POSCA acrylic paint pen.  After gluing a few mini spiders on to the cube the project was finished.

DIY Fall Lantern


Create a Fall lantern today for your home. All you need are a few supplies that can be found at your Bonney Lake Ben Franklin. 

Place battery operated Firefly lights with a remote control inside of a lantern, attach some Fall floral stems and a bow to the handle, and place on a table or shelf with a Fall leaf garland. 

We love lanterns because they can be easily decorated for every season.

DIY Pumpkin Blocks



Paint pumpkin faces on wood blocks for the perfect Fall decor.  Paint the wood pieces with orange acrylic paint and allow to dry. Next, add the faces to each block with POSCA acrylic paint pens.  Glue wood knobs to the top for stems and add raffia and ribbon to finish the project.

Make A Halloween Banner for Decorating This Fall



This Happy Halloween Banner kit comes with everything you need except for the paint. Choose your own color choices and paint the unfinished wood pieces. When the paint dries you string each wood piece on the twine and your banner is ready to hang. You can also add paper embellishments or glitter for extra pizzazz. 
I think this looks great hanging on my entry mirror, but you might like it on your mantle too.

Make a Fall Paper Mache Pumpkin


Mary Anne made this Fall pumpkin for a Scrapbooking Department display. She used a scrapbook paper from the Pebbles Spooky Boo collection and tore it into pieces. Then she misted the paper slightly to allow it to bend and used Multi Medium to attach it to the paper mache pumpkin. Each piece was added individually, layering until the pumpkin was completely covered. The stem was painted black with acrylic paint.
