FALL CENTERPIECE: Start with a wicker plate used to support paper plates. Supply bump chenille, hay, styrofoam, silk leaves and flowers, ribbon, small decoration, glue, scissors. Let imagination go! Will you have a pumpkin patch, a scarecrow, a candle in the middle? This is a great family night project. Also a good ice breaker for groups.
Easy PAPER BAG Decorations from HIGHLIGHTS Creative Crafts Series:
HARVEST WREATH: Cut a brown paper back from bottom on one fold. Cut away the bottom portion of the bag. A rectangular sheet of brown paper is left. Roll the paper crumpling in it as you go. Form a circle and staple ends together at top. Add pine comes or dried flowers and leaves for decoration. Add a bow and yard or pipe cleaner to hang.
JACK-O-LANTERN: Stuff a paper bag with paper. Twist and glue the top in a stem shape. Using tempera, paint the stem green and the pumpkin orange. Cut eyes, nose and mouth from black paper. Glue in place.
