Crafty Weekend

Spent the weekend attempting to be crafty. Loved how my pumpkins turned out. Really simple you take 4 strips of paper put a brad tack in the middle of all four and then gather the ends (so 8 in total) and creating the ball I inserted the green curls with the tack as well, and then glued the stems of roller paper on top. I think this would be a cute homemade ornament idea as well with some fun holiday paper.

My other project turned out okay. I think it would be better if I had been more patient and let the puffy paint dry more. I took 3 canvas, and drew the designs and then traced with puffy paint, I then Spray painted green - (the pictures don't show the green the same as real life), and found the lettering at the dollar store. The cost for the whole project was only about 10 dollars! Fun little touch!


  1. I have no kids so its easy to craft all weekend! I think I am going to adapt the pumpkin idea and make my christmas tree ornaments the same way!
