Tissue Paper pom poms and Hand Print Spiders {tutorials too!}

Are you all enjoying your Fall? What a gorgeous weekend we just had!! It's so beautiful this time of the year. The kids and I have been doing some Halloween crafting around here. We're having a Halloween Party Playdate with their little friends at the end of the month so we've been having fun making decorations and crafting. And our kitchen is looking might cute if I do say so myself. :)
I made my first tissue paper pom poms {tutorial found HERE or HERE}. I've been wanting to make them for a while. They were incredibly easy and now I'm completely addicted!! I bought my tissue paper at the dollar store but Target even has them for cheap. I used one package of tissue for each flower. Now I'm picturing them in different colors all over the house. They'd be cute in the kid's rooms but I was thinking even hanging in our bedroom. Anyway, they're very fun.
Last week we got nice and *messy* with black paint to make these adorable hand print spiders {tutorial found HERE}. They loved getting messy!!! Maybe a little too much.. ha ha. Any project involving the kid's handprints are keepers in my book.
I hope you all have a fun week!!
