Goodbye summer, Hello fall! 

 

Autumn is here! Happy sweater weather everyone! 

I suppose this is a good time to share a fun fall pumpkin craft I’ve made for you! I call it.. 

The Witch’s Magic Pumpkin! 

So gather round my wicked witches (and magical wizards can do this one too!) There are magic pumpkins to be made!

Here’s the supply list! 

(I found all my supplies at JoAnn’s and don’t forget your coupons, there are endless ways to save!)

  • A funkin pumpkin.. It will last + a craft you can keep!  
  • Black paint
  • Paint brush
  • Glitter
  • Sequins 
  • Black lace fabric 
  • Sewing pins with black heads 
  • Mod podge 
  • Siccors 
  • Green craft felt  
  • Black pipe cleaner 
  • Newspaper/plastic bag to keep your surface clean

   

I painted my funkin pumpkin with black paint. While I was waiting for the paint to dry I cut out some of the flower patterns from the lace. 

Once I figured out where I wanted to put my lace cutouts I used mod podge to glue them in place. 

After the mod podge dried I pinned the silver sequins in place using the pins with black heads. 

What’s a craft without a little glitter right? That’s my theory anyways lol 

I used a paint brush to apply the mod podge randomly around the rest of my magic pumpkin and sprinkled on some pixie dust… I mean glitter 🙂 

Make sure you have some newspaper/plastic bag to do your craft on because this one can get a little messy. But then again that’s what crafting is all about, it is half the fun! 🙂 

For the finishing touches I added some leaves I cut from craft felt and curled a pipe cleaner around my finger for a curly stem/vine. 

Use whatever colors and materials you want really, this is a pretty simple and a fun craft and there are a lot of ways to decorate it differently. Have fun and enjoy my gouls and goblins!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Hope you all are enjoying this fun day!

My morning was off to a busy start I had to tidy up, answer emails and get things going for St. Patrick’s Day preparations!

Whats Saint Patrick’s Day without a little something sweet right?! Right 😉

So I whipped up some frosting for some cupcakes! I used two different shades of green and rainbow sprinkles!

I also had bought this really cute Wilton cupcake kit at JoAnn’s and being that my boyfriend’s name is Lucky it couldn’t have worked out better. I mean how could I not!? 🙂 I also got the shamrock lights at JoAnn’s for 50% off they ended up being $9.99! And of course Lucky wants to keep them haha

And of course whenever you use sprinkles they get everywhere, I even found some in the living room not sure how I managed that but I’m not surprised 🙂
