Ohhh Myyyy Pumpkin Head!
It’s almost Halloween! I can’t wait to do all kinds of fun things this weekend! What are all my Jaderbugs up to? I still have not decided what I will be for Halloween! I will let little one decide for me! Ceaux Ceaux’s costume will be posted later on today so you HAVE to stay tuned! It’s SO cute! Remember I told you yesterday how I went to a pumpkin patch! Wait till you see my pumpkin. It’s the prettiest little thing I have ever seen. I’ll give you a hint, it’s ______!!!
I have to tell you what happened to me yesterday. While I was paying for my pumpkins the lady behind the counter was like, you were on Martha Stewart. She saw my name on something and I guess she remembered. That was the craziest thing because I was not expecting it. I felt proud! That’s it. Did I get you all excited? I wish it was more. I wish she would have said, “hey you can have allll the pumpkins you want”. But I paid my hard earned money for them and that felt good!
This craft was so much fun to make. I think I say that about every single craft right! Guess that means it’s my passion. In the middle of the project I started thinking about doing this for different holidays and my mind just took off! I think my mind does that with EVERY craft. I think I am ADD. That’s ok!
Who’s ready to get started?
|You will need crepe paper, curtain rod, tape & scissors.|
|You can measure the length of the window you are putting them on and cut pieces accordingly. After you cut your piece you will fold the end over the rod.|
|After the first layer is on you need to scrunch each strip. This gives it an old look.|
|This is only ONE layer.|
|After your first layer you need to keep adding more to fill in spaces/gaps that are showing.|
|Once you are happy with the thickness of it you can now start trimming the strips to your desired length. I made some longer than others so it looks ripped. Remember, this is your craft so you can do it any way you choose to.|
|This is what your final project should look like! I hope you had fun making it!|
Sending you so much crepe paper you can wrap you house in it,
(me on the show!)
