super simple decorations

Here are two SUPER simple
yet cute and
not TOTALLY cheesy looking
Halloween/Fall crafts that
you can do with your little kids.

Candy Corn Banner
What you need:
paper plate
orange marker
yellow marker
scissors

Grab a paper plate and draw two circles on it
one inside the other.
(I like to use the back of the plate so the candy corn curls back)
Color the outside ring orange and the inside ring yellow.

Let the 2 year old scribble to his hearts content

Here are the colored circles all finished.

Then just cut the plate into 8 "pie" pieces.
I also rounded the corners to make it more "real" looking.
And hang them wherever you'd like!




Jack-O-Lantern
What you need:
paper plate
orange marker
black construction paper
scissors
glue

Color the whole plate orange.

Glue on black pieces of paper that have been cut out
to be the eyes, nose and mouth.
Simple. Fun.



Oh and it doesn't HAVE to be orange!


Happy candy corn making!

Oh, these decorations are too, too cute (and so are your kiddoes!)!!! We love paper plate art at our house. And it's such an economical, easy way to get colorful, textural designs. Thanks for sharing your great ideas!
