DIY Halloween Lollipop Spiders | Mummy Crafts!

Hello Everyone,

I always love getting into the fall season when I get to create tons of crafts. It’s just something about the cool weather that makes me want to create. It is slightly early to be thinking about Halloween but, I just can’t help myself. Below is a video showcasing just 2 simple ideas that I had to decorate lollipops. These tutorials are fun for adults and kids alike. I hope you like them too. Also, I provide step by step instructions on how to assemble the crafts.

For the mummy. I use a toilet paper roll. I start off by placing a bottom on the roll to make sure whatever we put inside doesn’t fall out.
Next, we take scraps of fabric or streamer and begin wrapping it around the roll to give the appearance of a mummy being wrapped. It Doesn’t have to be perfect and I actually like the frayed scruffy look of the mummy.
Finally, we place the googly eyes on with the glue gun to secure the eyes on the fabric. Make sure to leave the top part open to place the treats inside. After you can close it off or leave it open. These would be great for a party, handing out to trick or treaters or simply decorations around the house.

You can check out how to make the spider legs for the lollipops in the video below.

DIY Santa Letters using Silhouette Cameo!

So I have fallen in love with using my Silhouette Cameo again. I keep forgetting how many things it can do. One of the cutest things I made were these =Letters to Santa for my youngest 2 children.
Which they absolutely love.

For those of you who don’t have a Silhouette Cameo, I have included a step by step guide on how to use Microsoft Word to make the same creation, using clip art and lines.

The first thing you want to do is open up Microsoft Word and select a new blank document. Once the program is open you want to go to insert and select online pictures (unless you have your own pictures to use. In that case select pictures) a window will pop up for you to find images. I typed in the search bar Christmas.

Now that you have selected your images you want to figure out where to place your clip art. *Note Word doesn’t give you many options when it comes to placing the clip art where you want to. I chose to put it in the upper right corner.

At this point, you can start by adding the greeting and proceed with adding the lines for the children to write to Santa. You want to select shapes in order to add the lines.

Now that you have added the lines. It’s time to add the finishing touches.


Now that you have added the finishing touches you are ready to print the letter out and give to your special little ones. They will love it I know my kids did. Whatever format you choose to use any child is sure to love it. If you make one of these make sure to take pictures and send them to me so I can see how you took my idea and made it your own.
