Bloggie Bestie Blog Swap with Katie from Punkin’ Heads and Dooda Loos

Happy Thursday friends!!!
Today we have a fun NEW Bloggie Bestie!!!
Katie from Punkin’ Heads and Dooda Loos!
She’s got a SUPER cute Halloween craft to share with us today! 
I’m over at her place sharing my Fall wreath, when you’re done here, FYI! 🙂

Here’s Katie….


Hello, Hello!
I’m psyched to be hanging out over here at Truly Lovely for Bloggie Besties!
Kassi was so nice to invite me on over.You can find her over at my blog today sharing her Fall Monogram Wreath.Which I LOVE. It’s definitely going on my “to-do” list.{I even have the rope!! You’ll see what I mean when you head over there.}

I was going to pop in a more recent picture of my family and I,
but I figured I’d toss up this little number, taken last September.
It’s a little more “fall-ish”. And since I’m going to share a Halloween tutorial
I figured it was more fitting than us sporting our summer duds.
So, now that the formalities are over with,  let’s start getting crafty!
Since I have a two year old, and I’m THAT Mom….
{you know, that Mom that puts all sort of funky things in their kids hair?}
I thought I’d share with you an easy Ribbon Ghost Clippie.


The kiddo wasn’t available to model,
so my spooky black bird volunteered to do the job!
To make this cute little Girly Ghost you’ll need:


Hot Glue Gun
5″ piece of white grosgrain ribbon {I used 3/8 inch ribbon}two 2″ pieces of white grosgrain ribbon1″ piece of white grosgrain ribbon1 piece of orange grosgrain, about an inch1 piece of black grosgrain, about 1.5 inches.Fray Check or a candle to heat seal the ribbonWiggly EyesPin or Clip**please note, lengths of ribbon are an estimate, make it whatever size you’d like!


Using the 5″ length of ribbon make a 90 degree fold
2 inches from the end.
Use a dab of glue inside the fold to hold in place.


Measure across about 1/2 an inch from the first fold
and make a second fold, glue in place.
Don’t worry if your ends aren’t the same length,
the measurements are an estimate and at the end we will trim them up.


Use the 1″ piece of ribbon and glue it to both “legs” to form an A.
This helps stabilize the body of the ghost.


Glue on the 2″ pieces in the center, attaching with glue at the top
AND to the stabilizing piece in the middle.


Trim the top of the ghost, and the bottom.
At this point you can also trim and “notch” the bottom of each piece.
Be sure to apply Fray Check, OR heat seal the ends of the ribbon over a candle.


To make the bow – take the black ribbon and
fold the two ends back and meet them in the middle.
Glue in place.


Lay the orange ribbon in the middle of the black to for a “t”.
Glue in place.


Trim the ends of the orange and wrap them around back.
Glue in place.


Glue the bow to the head of the ghost.
I like to make mine a little crooked for character.
Now you have a choice…pin or clippie?



I made mine a clip.
I wrapped the clip in ribbon for a more finished look.


Last but not least! Glue on the eyes, and attach to the clip!
BOO!!! 



The black bird did need a little sprucing up 🙂


Want to make the picture in the background with your kiddo?
Check it out here! It was lots of fun.
I had a great time hanging out over here at Truly Lovely today, and I hope you enjoyed it too.
See you all soon!
xoxo
