Is it teething time for your little one?
 
It's time to get the house decked-out for the forthcoming Halloween celebrations, and the kids will love this simple but spooky craft idea.
 
 
What do I need?
  • 16 Large sheets of orange tissue paper (50 x75cm)
  • Garden wire/Pipe cleaner
  • Scissors
  • Black/green Card
  • Chalk
  • Glue
  • String to hang
 
How to make one:
1. Lay out 16 sheets of tissue paper.
 
2. Fold, accordion style, 1-1/12 inch wide all the way along the short side.
 
3. Fold the pom-pom in half to make a crease at the centre, and secure with a pipe cleaner or some garden wire.
 
4. Use a scissors to trim the ends of the tissue paper into a semi-circle petal shape.
 
 
5. Separate the layers of tissue paper in the same direction on one side. Repeat this on the other side.
 
6. Use a piece of chalk to draw out some scary pumpkin faces on black card, and glue them onto your pumpkin.
 
7. You can also cut out a pumpkin stalk with green card and glue it on.
 
8. You can hang them from the ceiling with string, using a thumbtack to secure in place, or decorate your window or porch with them as a cheaper alternative to pumpkins!
