This is an easy craft to help kids get in on all that Halloween action. They can choose to make traditional Halloween characters, or run wild with their imagination.
Years ago, I was fortunate enough to see an extraordinary exhibition at The Textile Museum of Canada called A Terrible Beauty. 15,ooo exotic insects were pinned to the gallery walls, creating geometric patterns inspired by Victorian wallpaper. Once I got over the initial shock of being surrounded by so many enormous moths, beetles, and grasshoppers, I became fascinated by the patterns and this very impressive undertaking. Jennifer Angus’s work is a must see if you ever have the opportunity.
In this project, we’re going to be making exotic, creepy crawly bug pins, because it’s definitely that time of year. Pretty much everything you touch outside has something crawling under it. Ewwww!
