I am kind of what you could call an owl fanatic. I have loved them since I was a little girl. My house is covered in owl knickknacks and I even have an owl tattoo. Now that’s love. These painted owl art projects are actually inspired by one of my favorite owl knickknacks. This is a great one for the kiddos. We love how they came out. Each one is so different and unique in design.
Wax Paper Ghosts
We love Halloween and making Halloween arts and crafts in our home. This year so far, we have made cauldrons, witches’ shoes, jack-o-lanterns, scarecrows, mummies, and pumpkin patches, but no ghosts. Ghost crafts have always been a tricky one for me. Ghosts should be transparent, shouldn’t they? But, it seems like they never are. That’s what makes the wax paper so great in these wax paper ghosts, even with a little paint they still keep some of their transparency and look adorably haunting.
Pastel Resist Mosaic Jack-O-Lanterns
We do love making mosaics in this house. We’ve made paper mosaics, pasta mosaics and even nature mosaics. We also love making all kinds of resist art because, let’s face it, it is just so cool. So, what happens when we combine the two? We get these amazing pastel resist mosaic Jack-O-Lanterns that combine two of our favorites with lovely results. This is a beautiful fall or Halloween project for the kiddos.
Painted Cork Fairy Houses
A couple of weeks ago my daughter stumbled across a box of corks. It inspired us to make some pretty cork printed pumpkin patches. My daughter had some ideas of her own about what she wanted to do with those corks. She broke out her paints, went to work, and painted a couple of toadstools on them.
I thought this was such a great idea. They were adorable and it gave me an idea. So thank you to my 9-year-old for inspiring these cute painted cork fairy houses.
Scarecrow silhouette paintings
We love silhouettes. We have done a number of silhouette projects over the years and we are really excited about this one. These scarecrow silhouette paintings are perfect for the fall and Halloween. You can make them as haunting or cute as you want.
Smoky Witch Cauldrons
We are so excited about these smoky witch cauldrons. My daughter and I just love how they came out. They are so magical, haunting, and perfect for Halloween. Create your own cauldron design or use our free printable templates to make this beautiful and witchy art.
Spider Web Line Art
I have a little secret. I love spiders. My good friends know this about me and think that it is weird. I know all the rest of you are all saying “Ewww”, but it’s true. Spiders get a bad wrap. They are actually very helpful. And I am just obsessed with their webs. This art project is dedicated to my 8-legged friends and it’s is a fun one.
Cork Printed Pumpkin Patch Art
My daughter found a box of assorted corks the other day. She was so excited when she found them and immediately wanted to know what she could do with them. Her excitement rubbed off on me and I had to find a project for the corks too. These champagne corks were perfect for our pumpkin patch.
Pastel & Watercolor Peacock Feathers
Hello all! This week, we played around with pastels and watercolors to make some pretty and easy art. These pastel and watercolor peacock feathers were so quick and easy to make that my little one and I got a little carried away and ended up making a bunch. All you need for these are watercolor paper, oil pastels and some watercolors.
Chalk Pastel Northern Lights
We have been seeing a lot of beautiful, fun and vibrant chalk pastel projects lately from our friends over at Projects With Kids. We felt so inspired by her beautiful chalk art that we wanted to try one of our own.
One of our bucket list items is to see the Northern Lights. My family went to Iceland a few years ago and our tour got canceled due to poor viewing conditions. We might not be able to see them just yet, but with the help of a few chalk pastels, we can sure make some pretty art. These chalk pastel Northern Lights are super easy and fun to make.
