5 Quick and Easy Autumn Crafts #Bostikbloggers

We have been crafting over the past few weeks ready for Halloween and to celebrate a lovely leafy Autumn. We have made some really fun simple crafts.

First up we have our pumpkin simply made from a Styrofoam ball, orange tissue paper and a sharpie. Sticking tissue paper has always been pretty tricky, glue would soak through and rip the paper, sellotape would pull and tear it. However using Bostik glue dots worked a treat the tissue attached really easily and made no mess. They are also removeable if you make a mistake which is good new for us! we love these and will be ordering more!

Next we made a witch by attaching a Styrofoam ball onto a toilet roll tube. We used the glue dots to attach the tissue paper to the face then wrapped a black felt cape around her and used the rest to make a hat. According to my daughter she is a ‘nice witch’ hence the smile.

The spider was simply made from cutting a circle out of foam, crises crossing pipe cleaners across the back and adding googly eyes. easy as pi. To secure this I used the Bostik glue pen which directs glue where you want it rather than making a big splodgy mess.

We also added a little fimo cat to go with the scene and he is just waiting or a lick of black paint. To make it we simply rolled out a small ball and a big ball from fimo and pinched out two little ears. Tiny pieces of green fimo made the eyes He is a bit scary isn’t he!

We also made an Autumn wreath by cutting the middle out of some paper plates. Attaching a little ribbon and gluing on our (fake ) leaves. Isn’t it just lovely.

Crafting doesn’t have to be time consuming, perfect, or require lots of the ‘right equipment’ as long as your sticky stuff is good quality you can crafts form almost anything!

    They are all lovely! I really like the sound of the glue dots, I can think of many ways that I could use them in my crafting. The glue pen looks really handy too. Looks like you had a lot of fun!

    The wreath is so lovely. My garden is so full of them at the moment, it wouldn’t take me long to put one together! 🙂
