My nephews didn’t get to go trick-or-treating this year, so I wanted to do something special for them. Now, I am by no means the arts-and-crafts person in the family (that would be my older sister). But since it’s Halloween and I didn’t want to just hand them a sad bag of sweets to make up for what they missed, I decided I’d try my hand at a bit of the cutting and pasting thing.
I went to the mall and got a bunch of candy and some orange Japanese paper.
I layered about 4 sheets of paper helter-skelter and put the candy in.
I tied up the loose ends (dun-dun-DUN!) with a piece of string.
The finishing touches: I found an old black folder and cut out some eyes and mouths.
I had to bang these out in a hurry because as soon as I got home, I told my sister to come pick them up. Still, I think they turned out pretty good.
Here’s hoping my nephews think so too.
