It’s on my mind and I have been conjuring up some wicked things in my head long enough. It’s time all those thought come out to spook you!

What is any party without gift bags? These are quick and super easy.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Step 1. Paint chipboard with Little Birdie Crafts Charcoal Chalk paint and let dry.

Step 2. Adhere to bag – they come with a foam back sticker already on them!

That is it! Super easy and so cute!!!!

Whimsical Witch Hat for Halloween

With Halloween just around the corner, I’ve got witches, pumpkins and bats on the brain, and have been putting together lots of fun party and crafting ideas for the season. This Whimsical Witch Hat is a perfect project for your haunted holiday craft table, especially with the stunning selection of paper flowers and leaves from Little Birdie Crafts! This frightfully fun little paper art creation is perfect for setting on a shelf to decorate for Halloween; or, make a trio of these pointy DIY witch hats, and set them on mini cake pedestals for a truly tricky centerpiece that’s will have your guests spellbound.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Step 1. On one sheet of the patterned paper, create an 8″ diameter circular shape. Reserve.

Step 2. Roll one sheet of the patterned paper into a cone shape and glue to adhere.

Step 3.  Trim bottom so that it is even, then use scissors to cut about 1/2″ snips all around the perimeter of the bottom of the cone. Try to make them as even as you can.

Step 4. Flatten the snipped portions by pulling outward and positioning on the circular hat base as shown. Glue to adhere.

Step 5. Cut a length of ribbon and adhere to the base of the hat to create a band.

Step 6. Begin layering flowers onto the hat, beginning with the largest blooms first. I love the coral color of these Victorian Diane Coral Flowers!

Step 7. Add leaves and smaller flowers in a layered composition, paying attention to the contrasting colors, keep the mix well distributed.

Step 8. Add long stemmed flowers to the top of the hat for a whimsical accent, and top with a bow made from patterned ribbon.

Step 9. Embellish the base of the hat by adding clusters of green moss, and edge the piece in sparkling dotties. These are such a charming, chunky dotted mix and a great way to add sparkle.

Step 10: For a fun optional step, I created a small banner by hand, trimming some neutral paper and aging it with metallic wax. I used a silver paint pen to write, “Happy Halloween”, in pretty cursive hand lettering, then attached it to the front with a dot of glue.

What do you think of the finished piece?

It was so much fun to create this Whimsical Witch Hat for my Halloween decorating. The flowers are the secret to the elegant beauty of this unique art piece. Until next time, stay spooky, and remember to celebrate everything!

Emoji Greeting Cards

Hey there! I am always looking for funky cards to give to friends, and rarely find any that say what I’m really feeling! It’s so easy to make your own greeting cards, though – check out how to make your own Emoji Greeting Cards like these.

Here’s what you’ll need:

(The variety of cute embellishments available is ENDLESS)

  • Little Birdie Cards
  • Marker

You’ll also need some funny puns! Here are a few I liked:

  • Donut Kill My Vibe
  • I’m Donuts About You
  • Donut Worry, Be Happy
  • Get Your (poop emoji!) Together
  • Holy (poop emoji!) You’re Old!
  • You’re a Little Stinker!
  • Word’s Can’t Espresso How Much You Bean to Me
  • Love You A Latte
  • You Mocha Me Crazy

I can’t get enough of these darling Mini Embellishments – I want to collect them all. The poo and toilet paper? Best Buds!

There’s not much to this! Use markers to write what you want on your cards, and add embellishments where appropriate! They’re self stick, so it couldn’t be easier.

   I almost wish I would’ve used “Donuts before Bronuts” – that would’ve been cute, too!

The possibilities are limitless, so use your imagination! Go crazy!
