i really like to make things, i do i do! the other day a couple friends and i got together (with kids in tow:) at my house to do some crafting...(we missed you alacey)! we made this countdown, so cute...it was fun and just a little bit stressful to coordinate all those papers on the blocks for the numbers:)
i have used mod podge before but i have a new found love for it now. i want to mod podge lots of things now! so fun!
we also made these jar lanterns...i wanted to do this last Halloween but didn't have enough jars saved and it just never got done. since last year, i've been saving jars!!! so i had MANY jars to choose from so we all could do a few. it is a fun craft and quick, just have to wait for drying time. i have seen A LOT of these around the blog world too, green ones for Frankenstein, white ghosts, purple witches...all very cute! but i stuck with the pumpkins:) i have seen them done with tissue paper and for the life of me, i went to three or four different places and couldn't find orange tissue paper so we painted ours and they worked out just great! go here for templates for faces if you don't want to do your own...
i just printed out the faces and then mod podged them on, no fancy vinyl or anything, and it looks just great to me! the kids love them lit up:)
