You’ve still got time to plan a great Halloween party! And with all your decor made out of beautiful paper it’ll be simple and affordable. I’ve teamed up with Astrobright Paper to bring you super fun and simple ideas, like these paper strip hanging ghosts!, to colorize your spooky bash.
Aj and I worked on making these cute owl invites with wings that open and shut. You can download the template for them here. Use a white colored pencil to draw on feathered wings and simply write what you want to say to guests or use as thank yous!
We also decorated simple paper cups as owls and little witchies. The kids were crazy about them.
You can download the owl and witch cup templates here. Simply cut out the shapes, draw on feathers to the owl wings, and adhere to cups with adhesive such as a tape or glue.
You can also use enlarge these templates for various other uses – such as decorating a simple store bought cake! (don’t forget the witchy’s little wart! 😉
One of my favorite things to make was this paper strip hanging ghost. These guys will make a great impact to your home and party decor!
To make these I cut several 2″ strips of white Astrobright Paper. I then taped each 11″ strip to another one to make these ghosts extra long. Just use as many strips of paper as you want for however full you want your ghost to be. I then punched a hole in the top of each strip and secured with a large brad. To hang simply wrap a string around the brad and adher to the wall or ceiling. I added eyes and cheeks using Astrobright cardstock cut from various sizes of hole punches (i’m a bit obsessed with punches these days).
I love seeing these two together (in their cutest Pottery Barn costumes! Miss M wouldn’t wear her darling little swan headband but she was still so adorable). My oldest and youngest. I love how he looks out for her. So super sweet.
