A spooky & super fun Halloween Crafternoon

I had my latest and greatest... And spookiest Crafternoon this weekend. We made masks, hats, crowns and more out of cereal boxes, egg cartons, buttons, junk jewelry, etc.

Here's one of my sample projects - a crown with flowers made using a cereal box, egg carton, buttons and paint. Aren't I looking uber pretty!

We had a wonderful turn out. I think in the end we had anywhere from 40 to 50 participants of all ages, all skill levels, regular attendees and newbies. It was a FAB mix and so much fun!

Here's one of my helpers and Crafternoon devotees, Bonny...

I talked my coworker Mike into joining us... He brought his daughter and I suspect they'll be back! Crafternoons are addictive!

One of my regular participants with her crown...

Surprise, surprise... Here's one of my FAV crafters, Esteban. He finished off my sample egg carton project - a mouse mask and ears. He really got into character!

New crafters who made a super kewl robot mask.

And here's a funky egg carton mask... A 5-eyed creature along with kookie nose and mouth.

Awww so many fun crafters joined me for the afternoon!

These two agreed to be my helpers. They even rocked my sample projects... The rainbow is from last year's Halloween costume. It was perfect for the afternoon since it was raining out.

Our resident origami specialist, Jose.

Is this not the best crown! A cereal box, silver duct tape and red 'jewels'...

More completed projects...

And new crafty peeps along with a photobomb...

Awww so good to see these two! I am truly blessed to meet, craft, laugh, create with the most awesomeness of people young and old.

The day started off well too - my coworker Tom bought a gorgeous bouquet of flowers for me. Was the perfect afternoon!!

My next Crafternoon at the North Vancouver City Library is an early Xmas upcycling workshop on Saturday, November 29 from 1:30pm to 3pm. Hope to see you there!
