I use empty glass bottles that we use every day such as olive oil, salad dressing, liquor bottles, etc. I ask friends and family to save theirs as well. I use left over scraps of fabric, ribbon, yarn, acrylic paint, dollar store Halloween decor, and even things found in the yard.
I made a mini witches's broom from twigs gathered in the yard! I use spray paint as a base so that part should be done by an adult in a well ventilated area. It's a fun activity for kids of all ages, but if using a glue gun it's best to have an older sibling or adult on hand to help out.
Total Time: 1-2 hours excluding painting
