Ugh. Sometimes I really hate sewing. We’ve had our fair share of very very simple sewing projects in the past but neither Rose or I are very good at sewing. Sometimes you can get away without breaking out the ol’ needle and thread, other times not so much. We try to finagle our way out of having to sew anything if we can. Like this Thanksgiving table runner and placemats for instance.

It’s a shame because both of our grandmothers were incredible sewers and we both would love to learn how to use a sewing machine butttt in the meantime we gotta stick to our guns and either use a simple running stitch for every single project or break out the glue gun.

If you hadn’t guessed by now this project was the latter. We wanted to keep things nice and easy for all you Thanksgiving hostesses. These Thanksgiving table runner and placemats couldn’t be easier. All you need is some plain fabric, some felt, and a handy dandy glue gun. Though, if you are not like Rose and I and actually are good at sewing you could also sew on the leaves.

Eek it’s Halloween month! Rose and I both love Halloween.. Or at least I do and I force my love for it on Rose every year. This year might be one of our first Halloween’s apart.. to be determined though as I’ve already planned our costumes for this year, might be hard to beat last years costumes though. Again, here I go forcing Rose to enjoy Halloween and hang out with me #frienshipgoals

All kidding aside this year we do have lots of Halloween goodies we are trying to get done. I’ve been covered in orange paint and little bat confetti all week working on different projects. I’ve also been wearing this bat choker all week to stay in the holiday cheer (not because I tied it on and can’t untie it…)

To make this lovely Halloween bat choker all you need is some felt and ribbon. Simple as simple can be (my favorite kind of craft)! Keep scrolling through to find the instructions on how to make this easy choker.

Halloween bat choker | Popcorn & ChocolateMaterials:

  • Felt
  • Ribbon
  • Stencil

Instructions:

  1. Find an image of a bat online and print and cut it out to use as a stencil. You can also draw a bat if you are good at that.. which I am not so I went with good ol’ Google.
  2. Tape the stencil to your felt and then cut the felt around the stencil. Halloween bat choker | Popcorn & Chocolate
  3. Cut two small slits in both the wings of the bat, but don’t cut all the way to the edge!
  4. Thread the ribbon through the two holes you made. Halloween bat choker | Popcorn & Chocolate
  5. Optional: if the string is showing over the top of the bats head you can put a small black stitch in the middle of the bat (where my finger is pointing below) to hold the string down. Halloween bat choker | Popcorn & Chocolate

Now tie the choker around your neck and you’ve got instant Halloween pride! Another option for tying it is to make sliding knots. This video explains how to do it. I think he does a clear job, though it takes him a little while to get started (about 2:00 he gets going). This would look cute layered with other chokers or you could just wear it plain like I did. You could even make the bat a different color to jazz things up.
