Send the kids out to find some pine cones while you get Thanksgiving dinner ready and when they come back, all you need is some cardboard, scissors, a pen and twine to add this great little addition to any Thanksgiving table.
You can even have them write something they are thankful for making this a great educational lesson as well!
These cute Thanksgiving decorations are very simple and make a great little craft for you to do with your toddler. Simply trace a leaf pattern onto the brown paper bag and cut it out. Write “Give Thanks” (or whatever you want your Thanksgiving message to be) onto the leaf and tie it onto the pine cone using twine.
This bakers twine is so versatile and, not to mention, cute! Use it for card making, gift wrapping, and crafting. 100% plush cotton, eco-friendly and four-ply. Made in the USA. Comes with 240 yards on each spool, in a variety of 15 gorgeous colors! Order today!
Gather your supplies and get your glue gun plugged in.
Using the hot glue gun, hot glue the matte leaves around the embroidery hoop, alternating the colors and leaving space between each leaf. I glued them on facing the same way – stems towards the center of the hoop.
Now, glue the glitter leaves on in the spaces between the matte leaves. I glued the glitter leaves on with the stems facing away from the center of the hoop.
When all of your leaves are glued on, gather your ribbons and trim. Use one length of ribbon (mine was about 14 inches long) to create a loop for hanging. I threaded my ribbon through the metal tightener of the embroidery hoop – it is a natural hanger!
Finally (see picture below collage), cut various lengths of your pom pom trim, twine, ric rac and ribbon and tie them around the center of the long ribbon loop you made for hanging.
This is the perfect super simple Fall wreath! It’s not fancy, it’s not fussy and it has just a hint of sparkle! Who doesn’t love a project that takes just 5 minutes?!
It’s SPOOKY season! We love these super simple Day of the Dead skull lanterns! These are not only simple, but oh so fun! 👻
glass mason jars
black sharpie or craft smart marker
glow in the dark sticks
First, paint a fun sugar skull or calavera design on the front of the mason jar. Next, cut a glow in the dark stick and pour the glow in the dark liquid inside the mason jar. Close the jar tightly and shake it making sure that the liquid covers all the inside of the mason jars. Make sure that you use gloves when you cut the glow in the dark sticks and do not let children handle them or cut them as the chemicals inside the glow stick can irritate skin and eyes. Some glow sticks also have glass inside so be careful when handling as there might be glass shards inside the glow stick. Proper safety materials like safety glasses and gloves should be used when recommended to protect eyes and skin!
To complete your mason jar, be sure to get your RABOM exclusive sugar skull pumpkin patch ribbon! Order yours here

It’s BACK TO SCHOOL time for the kiddos! We are loving this adorable craft from Crafty Morning. Great for teaching about the letter A, or doing a fall activity about an apple orchard! Just note that you will need to help your child with this project as it is kind of tedious. Enjoy!
