WHO’S READY TO MAKE A SPIDER PUMPKIN! 
I am excited to share with you the #TrickYourPumpkin sweepstakes that will be going on Oct. 4 through 31 for a chance to win a $250 Michaels gift card and Plaid products each Friday throughout the month of October. 

HERE ARE THE RULES:
Post your pumpkin project on Instagram using hashtag #trickyourpumpkin, #sweepstakes and tag Michaels.

If you are having trouble figuring out all the different ways to keep this sucker up all year long then you and I are on the same page. It’s funny because when I started doing the rainbow pumpkin I really fell in love with it until…the matte black one was born.

…There is something sleek and sexy about an all black pumpkin, don’t you agree!

What You’ll Need (You can purchase all of the items I used in this post by clicking on the links below. These are affiliate links so ordering from them helps me buy more glitter and glue)

I love this glitter. It has a matte look to it and it goes perfect with the shiny spiders!

The first thing you want to do is place the spider on your finger, add mod podge to the end then sprinkle glitter on top.

Once your spiders are dry, grab a pair of scissors and cut the ring section off.

How gorgeous are these spiders…

Start applying the spiders on the pumpkin by adding a little hot glue to the back of them, then placing on the pumpkin. That simple. This is all we are doing with the cream pumpkin.

For the matte black pumpkin you will start by spraying the pumpkin with Krylon chalkboard paint. Make sure to do this in a well ventilated space.

DSC_0540

Take your black spiders and repeat all the steps from the cream pumpkin. Once all of the spiders are glued on spray your pumpkin again with the chalkboard paint.

Here is a quick tip: Remove loose strands of hot glue with a heat gun, or a blow dryer. It heats up the thin strands then they magically disappear.

Today it’s all about Glow in the Dark Pumpkins. I have always loved Halloween so I figured I would get a little creative with my pumpkin decor. I don’t know about you but I am over carving pumpkins, which is why I resort to artificial ones. For one, they last a heck of a lot longer (heller, saving money 101) and they are simply gorgeous the second you purchase them. Have you seen my pumpkin roundup, if not you have to check it out. It’s 20 fabulous ways to decorate your pumpkins!

I get all of my pumpkins from Michaels and right now they are 50% off! I know, I think I will go back again today and get more. This tutorial is good for everyone to do. It’s the kind of project that just makes you feel good! Plus creating is a good way to release anger and and it relaxes you in the process! For the full tutorial click on the link below!

Halloween is my favorite holiday as you all may know. So I teamed up with Fiskars to create a fun Halloween project just for YOU!

Sometimes I want to be a kid again. I tried it last year but I think everyone knew I was not a kid. Dammit. I lost a little weight in the last few weeks so maybe I will have a good chance this year. Last year I dressed as Frida Kahlo and boy did I look just like her. The guy at the grocery store thought I was a “geisha girl”…

Epic fail. How could anyone not realize who I was!? Moving on.

Sometimes when everyone is buying Halloween costumes they might find it difficult to find a matching treat bag to sling on their arm. I am making things super easy for you this year by showing you how to create your very own using Duck Tape! When you get to the Duck Tape isle in whatever store you are in you will realize just how many options you have to choose from. It’s like being in a sticky candy store. If you love bags check out these glittered lunch bags.

So head on over to the Fiskars website ( See below the picture) and get the full tutorial. You won’t believe what I used to make these bags with, besides Duck Tape. Did I mention the bags are filled with glow in the dark stickers. Yes indeed!

Today I will be showing you how to make Chalkboard Labels ! I love these for the simple fact that they can be used for practically anything and everything. There are a few different ways to create these labels and I obviously opted out for the “lazy” version which means my cardboard labels are already cut out.

Chalkboard labels, Prints and Chalkboards in general are popping up all over the place so this is the perfect time to share this with you.  Check out these antique chalkboard mason jars I created for Michaels, they are great to store things in

If you have a certain paper punch that you love you can use it to make labels also. It would certainly have to be a durable punch to go through cardboard but it’s possible.

Let’s get started!

diy chalkboard labels tutorial

You will need: Cardboard Tags | Chalkboard Paint | Chalk Markers | Brush  chalkboard label supplies I am absolutely in love with this chalk paint from FolkArt. It’s convenient and very compact. It also comes in multiple colors!  folk art chalk paint These particular tags came with ribbon on them. Make sure to remove the ribbon before you start painting them.

cardboard labels diy Let one side dry before you turn them over to paint the other side.

black chalk paint diy If you love chalk then you will love these markers! It works just like a paint pen and the best part is when it dries it looks just like chalk! You can also wipe the chalk away with a wet washcloth and start over again.

chalk markers Once they are dry, have fun drawing whatever you want on them.

how to use chalk markers I thought it would be cute to re-apply the ribbon and attach them to coffee bottles. You can buy a 6 pack and give them to someone as a gift with personalized labels.  chalkboard labels tutorial

DIY Back to School Teacher Gift Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs! I am super stoked to bring to you another fun Michaels Makers project today – this easy DIY Back to School Teacher Gift! This is officially my third project but check out my other two. I am still in love with these Antique Chalk Mason Jars  and this shabby chic Burlap Canvas Display. I also created a fun back to school bag for Michaels that I think every kid should wear!

This month the theme is “Back to School” and I love this time of the year. It’s always fun to get re-organized. Kids love nothing more than going to school and giving their teachers a gift which is why I wanted to make something that would stand out all year long! Come check out the other Back to School projects that the other Michaels Makers created!

YOU WILL NEED: GLASS JARS | MOD PODGE | ADHESIVE RHINESTONES | BRUSH | TISSUE PAPER | CHALKBOARD MARKERS | CHALKBOARD LABELS  DSC_0283
DSC_0294 DSC_0288 Step 1: Apply Mod Podge directly onto glass.  DSC_0289 Step 2: Place a piece of tissue paper on top of the Mod Podge then add another layer directly on top of tissue paper.

DSC_0290 Step 3: Start overlapping other colors on top of each other repeating the same process with Mod Podge. If you notice layering certain colors will create a brand new color. This is my favorite part!
DSC_0291 Step 4: Grab your adhesive rhinestones and peel off the back layer of paper.  DSC_0292 Step 5: Wrap your rhinestones around the top of glass jar. DSC_0303 Step 6: Grab a adhesive chalkboard label and place it on your jar.  DSC_0295 Step 7: ENJOY!

ST_12_months_of_Martha_Logo-1 Hand Painted Cork Board
Today’s 12 months of Martha posts is super easy and I know anyone can do it with a little bit of love, joy and patience. I always find joy taking something and adding my own personal touch to it. Whether it’s a design I like or my favorite colors. Yes, it might take a little more effort but in the end it’s worth it. You will be surprised how good you will feel to make your own Hand Painted Cork Board!

Holy cow! It’s almost time for all the lil ones and big ones to go back to school. Are you as excited as me? Insert a crooked smile here.

I think I am excited to get a routine back because let’s face it the summer knocks everything out of whack and things tend to get a little nuts. I went school shopping with my lil one (14, don’t tell him I said lil one) and I realized at the register that most of the “supplies” in the basket were for me. I think I get more excited about “back to school” supplies than him!

Supplies:
*Ruler
*Craft Paint
*Craft Brush
*Cork Boards DSC_0287

It’s time to kick off going back to school and what better way to do that than with some awesome home / office decor. I know what you are thinking, ” I can totally go buy some from the store, yo”… but why go buy something when you can DIY!

I am in love with the colors I am using in today’s project! They are soft pastel colors that will create a nice feeling in any room.

PicMonkey Collage.jpg

The colors I used: Poodle Skirt | Camellia Pink | Party Streamer | Wild Salmon | Yellow Jacket.  DSC_0282 Step ONE: Get out your cork board and lay it on a flat surface.
DSC_0297

Step TWO: Get your ruler and mark 1.5″ dot’s with your chalk board marker or a light colored pencil. Do this all the way across the bottom of your cork board, on both sides.  DSC_0285

Step THREE: When you are done with your dots connect them from one end to the other. You are creating lines on your cork board.

DSC_0286 Step FOUR: This is what it should look like when you are done.
DSC_0298 Step FIVE: Take your ruler and create angled lines in each section starting at the top and working your way to the bottom.

DSC_0299

Step SIX: The first section your lines will go downward then the next section you will make your lines go in the opposite direction. You will be creating a “chevron” appearance.  DSC_0300 DSC_0302

DSC_0303 I am loving these colors! This alone is ART! DSC_0308 Step SEVEN: Start painting each section with your paint. I will tell you when you use a dark cork board like I am using you might have to put two or three coats of paint, depending on how opaque you want it.  DSC_0314

DSC_0116

I am very pleased with the way they turned out. I created one board with the entire board painted and the other one I allowed some brown pieces to come through. I thought each look came out completely different and gave off a different vibe.  DSC_0113 DSC_0122

I am so stoked about my latest post for the I Love to Create Blog where I will show you how to paint stripes. I always have fun using Tulip products and for some strange reason this project made me feel super duper inside. Check out these too!

I think I may have a slight addiction to color, as you can see here. If I had to explain to you in this moment what COLOR does to me it’s like kids that sit down at the table to eat and the entire time they sorta “dance” with their legs under the table. You know what I am talking about? I can always tell when I cook a good meal if I feel the floor shaking a little.

Now when the floor doesn’t shake. I just take an extra sip of wine and go cry in the bathroom. Well not really but you get it, RIGHT!

These napkins represent a big juicy hamburger from your favorite joint. Maybe with extra pickles and a good coke! Make sure to click at the bottom for the FULL tutorial ♥
