It’s been quite some time since I’ve done some crafts, maybe a few years, but last weekend I had the itch to make something cute and pretty for fall. My girlfriend had inspired me by showing a picture of a wreath that she made not too long ago and I instantly wanted to drive to the craft store.
Instead of doing that, we waited until she had a day off of work and then I toted all the kiddos and we headed to Michael’s to see what they had. I didn’t exactly know what I wanted to make so I just left it up to the crafting gods to inspire me with what was on the shelves.
Whelp… $70 later and a trunk full of craft supplies, this is what I came up with.
After I decided to make cute pumpkins, of course I had to drive to the pumpkin patch and pick up a bunch and it just so happened that there is a cute little one right down the street from my house.
Score for living in Michigan where farms are everywhere.
Once all the ingredients were assembled, we poured a glass of wine and got to work.
I tried to get Alyssa to work on some pumpkins with me but she didn’t want to, so I gave her her own so she could do with them what she pleased but I wanted to make mine sparkle and glitter!
Or maybe that was the wine?
Either way, the pumpkins turned out perfect. I even decided to decorate a couple of the fake pumpkins so that next year I would have some already to go.
You’ve gotta have backup for when you’re ready to decorate but haven’t had time to do anything crafty or special.
Plus, I actually didn’t own any fall-ish decorations before heading to Michael’s this year. Seriously!
I call this a success! Especially since I managed to keep all the glitter contained and it didn’t go all over the house. That’s a HUGE win in my book! Until next time…
