DIY Pumpkin Decorating

I had some fun with my little sister today decorating pumpkins.

Glam Pumpkin
This pumpkin was fun and easy. These are stickers that have the stones already on them. It was so easy to just line them up and stick them on. I had to adjust them a few times to make sure it was just the way I wanted it, but it took less than 10 minutes.

Our second pumpkin was a different story. We got the idea from tumblr/pinterest. The original pin was deleted.

Here are the pictures of our masterpiece!

Colorful Crayon Pumpkin
We started by putting a bit of glue on the crayons and lining them up in the order we wanted. We placed it on a cardboard box to help with the mess and hit it with a hairdryer. It helped to have the diffuser on the the dryer so it wouldn't blow the crayons straight off of the pumpkin. We did have some blow off still anyways. We also found that we needed more crayons and kept adding more. If I were to do this again I would buy more crayons and have more of the same colors.

All in all I think it was a smashing success and yay these pumpkins can be used year after year. Love it!

A little self pampering

Tonight I gave myself a little treat! I used my Mary Kay Satin Hands Pampering kit on myself. I love love love the Satin Hands hand softener. It is extra emollient and feels so good. My hands feel so soft and smooth now. Then I used Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips. So easy and such a cool effect! They are supposed to last up to 10 days and biggest perk is no dry time. Love it!

Craft insomnia

I just got some new ribbon and clips! Isn't the pink zebra print super cute! I've made dozens of the bows with the single prong clips and finally got a bunch of the snap clips. I love making bows because I get to craft even when I don't have a lot of time. I'm just gonna make one more and then I'll go to sleep! 

Apple cinnamon deliciousness

Found the recipes on Pinterest. All I can say is yum!

Cinnamon sugar tortilla chips, pie crust cookies, and apple pie dip. All made by me! It was like mini apple pies.
