Welcome visitors with this cute wreath. Make it in fall colors, Halloween colors, or just your favorite colors.

Make a "Jack O' Lattern" but cutting a face into a luminary. It is still cute, but less messy and easier to "carve" than a pumpkin!

Use handprints to make this Halloween placemat set. The placemats are fun to make and will become keepsakes as your children grow.
