Personally I love getting my hands dirty and carving out pumpkin guts. There is something about the smell of the raw pumpkin and the smiley, squishy insides that make me feel all nostalgic inside. But I am a realistic at the same time and I know even though our attempts are well applauded about 3/4 of the way through we are all asking for our 3rd or 4th refill of my spiked cider and just wash our hands and put a candle in that damn jackolacktern and call it a success. Yet, there's still those who think that carving a pumpkin all together is far too much work and for those we have this new chic trend popping up all over. Skip the messy, manicure ruining carving and just decorate the outside. This examples I have seen popping up everywhere lately have me wanting to create more beautiful pumpkins than I possibly have time for. Here are a few example that inspired me and I hope they will inspire you too!
Take a spin on the traditional V-Day cards for the classroom and craft these little critters! Your kids will love crafting these cute little guys and love handing them out as Valentines to their classmates!
Cheer on your team during the super bowl with these cute, easy to make Pom Poms!
The best way to spend Thanksgiving is with your family and friends with good food. I personally love hosting because I enjoy decorating so much. The most important decorations of all is of course the dining table because that is where everyone will gather for the majority of the day. When it comes to sit down for the big meal wow your guests with these adorable "mini pumpkin patches" as place settings for your guests.
Use this to label your game day buffet table! Free and easy to print out.
Spring is here and Easter is just around the corner! Make these flower pinwheels for a beautiful and unique centerpiece during your Easter celebration. They won't die either so you can leave them out all spring long!
In honor of the easter holiday, why not do something with all those leftover egg shells? Create a fun piece of art that the whole family will enjoy making.
Another creation made by me that I'm hoping to get up on our Etsy shop soon for all the other Potterheads out there like myself.
