I have been reading lots of blogs on making cute things
for Halloween and being craft challenged, I look for things
that are fast, easy and it has to be made out of something
I already have. Well, mostly things I have.
I went to a site called Me and My Bucket
She had a tutorial how to make these cute pumpkins using
tissue paper and Mod Podge. I didn't have tissue papers.
So I thought what if I took orange food coloring and mixed
it with Mod Podge. Then I painted them and let them dry
and then cut out faces from black card stock. Then used
plain Mod Podge to paint over the faces and stick it on.
I did buy those tea lights that come with a battery.
I thought they looked cute and if my grand children want
to take them home it is okay with Gama.
This is a close up I painted the lids green, and took a Philips
screw driver and a hammer and went out in the back
yard and hammered holes in the lids after they were dry.
I cut cinnamon sticks in half and shoved them in the holes and
added a drop of tacky glue. I tied on some raffia and I was finished.
The crow on the glass block was my other quick
project. I had it from Christmas so I took it and put
a crow on it. Now I have a nice scary light at night. The
dark pictures didn't turn out. So just imagine
it in the dark. The only place in my house that doesn't have
windows is my guest bathroom and it just doesn't look
right having a photo-op standing in the bathroom.
So I did a bit of craft projects this weekend. Oh,
my other criteria for making projects, is it has to
wash off. I am the messiest person and I am
in trouble if stuff doesn't wash off like this summer
using blue spray paint, and it leaked. It was oil
based, and you could follow my trail. It was terrible.
Yep, craft challenged that be me.
Have a great Tuesday!
