How to Make a Skeleton Knight Costume Sword & Shield

My kids have figured out that if they need something for a costume, a project needing done, they know who had the supplies....me.  So when my son wanted to be a knight, but not just a knight a skeleton knight, we needed to make a sword and shield.  I can do that!



First was the sword, I used cardboard as the base to put the whole thing together.



Here is a video on how I made the sword.



I love how the bling works on the hilt, really make the whole thing pop!



Next came the shield, still using cardboard as a base.




Here is a video on how I made the shield.



I used a star in the middle to be the focal point for the shield and kept all the colors consistent.



Now here is my son being goofy and having fun during the photo shoot.

Witches Brew Potion Bottle - Stencil Etched Halloween Decor

I love to save my bottles for fun little decor items, and this time it is some fun potion bottles for Halloween.  I love the idea of being able to transform something simple into something amazing, like a barbecue bottle into a magical witches potion bottle.



Here is a video on how I created the bottle.



I used a spiderweb stencil and the NEW spray adhesive from Etchall with the etching creme to create the spiderweb look on the bottle.  With the grey color inside the bottle the etching looks amazing!!



I loved adding on all the little gems and metals pieces to bring the look together, like a potion bottle that is ready to be sent into a witches brew cupboard.  Almost like it should be a bottle in a potions class in Hogwarts!

Easy Felt & Cork Turkey Magnets Kids Craft

Need a fun and easy kids craft?  Try these cute little turkeys made from felt and cork, all stuck together with a little Xyron magic!!!  Best part is they are magnets!!


Here is a video on how to make these fun little turkeys.


I started collecting some corks from wine bottles, it was a hard job someone had to drink some wine, hehe.  I cut them in half and then cut out little triangle shapes in felt in autumn colors, browns and greens.  I also cut out a little nose in orange.  I had a few little googly eyes left in my stash and ran all the felt and eyes through my Xyron 3" Sticker Maker to make everything a sticker!



My daughter and her friend were my guinea pigs to see if little ones could make these fun little crafts, they are both 5 years old.  Once everything was a sticker it was just down to them putting it all together.  Here are there little turkeys.



I love how each turkey is a little different because of the eyes and also the shape of the nose!  Here is mine, it looks a little shocked.



Slap a little Xyron Magnet Tape on the back of these little guys and they are ready for the fridge.   You could also use these as place settings for your Thanksgiving table!
