How to Create a Quick & Cute Halloween Card from Scraps

Hello and welcome!  Shelly with you sharing a super cute & quick card I created using scraps from my last project.

In my last post, I showed you how to create a Halloween Banner.  I was so in love with the die cut cat using the Robins Nest papers that I created a 2nd one at the same time to use on a future project - and this is it!

What I used:

What I did:
  • Score white cardstock at center, fold, use corner rounder on all corners, ink edges
  • Cut Kraft cardstock, use corner rounder on all corners, ink edges
  • Adhere kraft CS piece to white card base
  • Cut circle from Flame Swirl Cardstock (trace around a large cup or saucer for pattern) ink edges and adhere to kraft cardstock
  • Adhere die cut cat on top of Flame Circle Cardstock Circle
  • Fussy cut a bat from Black Bats Glitter Cardstock and the word BOO from Boo Words Glitter Cardstock and adhere to card
  • Adhere ball fringe along lower edge of kraft cardstock
  • Finish with Black & Ivory Diamond Dew Drops

I may have enough scraps from these papers to use on one more Halloween project....

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have a creative week!

How To Make Fun & Whimsical Mini Witch Hats

Hello there crafty friends!
Michelle here with you today 
sharing a fun, and fairly easy to make project 
just in time for Halloween.
Whimsical Mini Witch Hats.

These were made with the FABULOUS
Purple Bats & Pumpkin Glitter Cardstock
from The Robin's Nest.



The design I used for the hats is a design
from my cutting machine, however
there are loads of free templates
available on Pinterest.

 Once I had cut the glittered cardstock 
I began shaping it into the cone,
securing the bottom by stapling.
I then glued the remaining area

For the brim, I cut two pieces of solid black cardstock,
one to slide over the hat shaft,
and the other for the bottom. 
Some templates, show the same as my machine design,
tabs on the bottom edge of the shaft.

I glued the tabs to the top brim, 
and then glued the bottom brim 
to  "sandwich" the tabs in between.

The rest, is all about embellishing.
I cut bat shapes, then used glue and purple glitter
to mirror the bat design in the hat shaft.
Using wire, I glued the bats and staggered
them by length of wire, and secured with glue.

Each hat features bats & spiders,
coordinating with the hat's individual colors

I also used glimmer sprays on white tulle,
to make purple, orange & black tulle to embellish the hats,
and used satin patterned ribbon, and rushed black lace on each. 

The orange & black hat also features
a glittered pumpkin from The Robin's Nest.

The really fun part? 
The hats are now attached to slim headbands, 
coordinating with each hat,
that can be worn for Halloween fun.

Thank you for visiting today.
While here, be sure to check out the galleries
at the top, and find yourself inspired
by projects created with exclusive products
from The Robin's Nest.

Velvet Faux Pumkins

Hello Robin's Nest readers!

Robin posting today. 

Can you believe it is October?
I truly am in shock!  I love the fall season, it is one of my favorites,
the cooler weather, sweaters, hot chocolate, fall colors, and well
the list just goes on!

Today I am sharing with you some cute faux velvet pumpkins I made
for my home.  I looked all over for real velvet in the fall colors
but alas, there was only black and red velvet in our local
stores.  So the next best thing was to buy a velvet looking fabric
to make my pumpkins with.

I chose rust, grey, cream, honeycomb, brown, and beige.

The first thing you do is cut a round circle.
I used a charger plate as my circle, and traced around it on the 
fabric and then I cut them out.

For various sizes I used plates and bowls and traced around
them on the fabric then cut out the different sizes.

I then sewed around the edge of the fabric with a needle and heavy thread
and pulled it tight to get the shape above.

Then I filled the pumpkin with polyfiber fill and pulled the thread tight and sewed 
the circle shut.

Here are a few of the pumpkins not finished on my work table.

Now I have glued with a hot glue gun a dew drop on the pumpkin.

Here I have glued dew drops around the pumpkin, all with a 
glue gun.  Just a small dot of glue is plenty.

Then I glued a pumpkin stem on the top of the pumpkin over
the area where the pumpkin is sewed together.

I have been saving pumpkin stems for a while, because I wanted
to make these.  You could buy pumpkins from the store and use
the stem, or save your stems from this year for next years pumpkins.

I also used branches for the tops of some of my pumpkins.
I will show these in some other photos on this post.

I added ribbons, faux leaves dew drops, and old jewelry to the tops 
of these cute pumpkins.

Close ups of some, I added old crocheted doilies also to 
some of the tops of the pumpkins.

They can be displayed all over your house.
These are on the countertop in my kitchen.

And I added some of them to my china cabinet.

Such a fun way to add fall to your house,
I've wanted to make these for a few years, and finally this year
was the year.

You can find dew drops on our website


Just click on this link and it will take you to the Robin's Nest
web page.  I used amber colored dew drops,
but other colors would be so fun also.

Happy Fall!!!
