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! Come check out all of my past Halloween crafts here.

DIY Glittered Acorns are on the menu today. I found this little bag of acorns and miniature pinecones at Michaels and I had to pick up a few of them. Call it an addiction but anything “little” has to come home with me!

Now they were simply perfect with it’s natural colors in the bag but I wanted to add a little flare to them, so I added glitter! You can never go wrong with glitter.

If you love to decorate for Fall this is the perfect accent to your decor. You can sprinkle them around your pumpkins, put them in bowls or eat them. Either way they will work out fine for you! Let’s get started. DSC_0426 You will need: Bag of Pinecones and Acorns | Glitter | Decoupage  Brush
You can purchase all of the items used in this post by clicking on the links above. These are affiliate links so thanks for helping me purchase more acorns and glitter, yo!  DSC_0406 Step One: Lay out your goodies and stare at them for a minute. Worship them because they are simply that adorable.
DSC_0407 Step Two: Grab the glitter of your choice and shake them like a salt shaker. Preferably on top of your head. I am using Martha Stewart glitter in Florentine Gold & Wintermint.  DSC_0410 Step Three: Get your bottle of decoupage and roll it on a flat surface to wake it up. We need to make sure everything is mixed together well inside of the container.  DSC_0411 Step Four: Apply a small amount of decoupage on your brush and add it to your acorns and pinecones. While wet sprinkle a little glitter over the glue. Hint: I like to place a sheet of paper under my items to catch the glitter, then I can pour it back into the bottle.

Just like saving whales, we need to save the glitter.  DSC_0416 DSC_0420
DSC_0427 DSC_0428 I love the way they came out. Did I mention this is the perfect craft to have your kids do? Seriously it takes about 10 minutes to do them and it dries really fast. I think I will make rainbow ones next. What cha think! See ya in the next post Jaderbugs!

I guess it’s appropriate for me to say, “Happy Fall Y’all”…

DSC_0380 This month’s theme for Michaels Makers is Fall Home Decor. Fall is my favorite because the weather is changing, the leaves on the trees are changing, even food tastes better. Today I will show you how to dress up your table with a punch of Fall, surely this will make all of your guests excited! All of the materials I am using today come from Michaels. I hope you enjoy it!

YOU WILL NEED: GLASS PLATTER | SHARPIE | PAPER FLAGS (OPTIONAL) | TIM HOLTZ KNOBS | CHALK BOARD SPRAY PAINT | LACE ADHESIVE STICKERS | E6000 | TAPE | MARTHA STEWART PUMPKIN SLEEVES

DSC_0355 These pumpkins come in different colors so you don’t have to spend time painting them, my kinda pumpkin. They are on sale right now at Michaels so go grab a few. You can do so many different things with these pumpkins. The best part of these pumpkins is they will never rot! So you can bedazzle your hearts away and save them for next year.
DSC_0357 These Martha Stewart pumpkin sleeves are phenomenal. They are made from a stretchy mesh material that can cover a pumpkin in no time. The best part is you can take the sleeve off when you get tired of it, leaving you with a blank canvas! DSC_0358 I love the lace design on this pumpkin sleeve.
DSC_0359 To make our chalkboard pumpkin, tape off the top part of your pumpkin. I am using tape from Martha Stewarts line.  DSC_0364 Once you have it taped off you can spray paint the bottom portion of your pumpkin with chalk board spray. Make sure you do this in a well ventilated spot. DSC_0367 Add some E-6000 to the top of your pumpkin and place the knob on the top of it. This will make your pumpkin look a very classy. DSC_0370 On one of your plain pumpkins we will apply these lace removable stickers to them. It adds a pop of class to them.  DSC_0360 DSC_0361 I am placing these adhesive dots on top of each lace sticker. The great thing is you can purchase these in multiple colors. Did I mention this whole sheet is only $1.  DSC_0372 On your chalkboard pumpkin, grab your Sharpie and write whatever inspires you on the top portion. This is a great time to grab your favorite quote or poem. Don’t forget to grab some chalk for the bottom part.  DSC_0375 DSC_0379 DSC_0380 DSC_0381 DSC_0382

Today I will show you how to Decorate Paper Bags.

Well from what I gather it is almost Halloween around this joint. This means I get to display my favorite color everywhere in the house! Black that is.

I have to admit being the “DIY’ER” that I am sometimes crafts come to me and I just quickly make them. If they are good then they get posted. No lie, this was not planned but I just think it’s practical and can be used for many things in your life.

Sometimes I go through a period of doing fairly simple tutorials and then I do really complicated ones that require ton’s of pictures. Not sure why I do that but I do.

This one would surely fall under EASY!

Have you seen my Halloween Coffee Party yet?

What about my Vintage Crow Magazine Holder!

Decorate Paper Bags

 It is honestly a craft that you would add your own imagination too so have fun with it. I made a quick video for you also.

12monthsofmartha HALLOWEEN PARTY DECOR

Boo-Yah!  I don’t know about you but I love HALLOWEEN PARTY DECOR. What do I love about it? EVERYTHING.

It doesn’t always have to be bloody and dark, ya know. Even though that’s the real way to celebrate this holiday.

I wanted to throw a black and white themed coffee party and I know you will love all of the little details. Witches “brew” is what we will call it.

If you love Halloween as much as I do then you need to check out these houses I made. Wear these shoes while trick or treating with your kids. I am in love with these black and white kitchens.

BLACK AND WHITE HALLOWEEN PARTY DECOR

I know I would love to attend a spooky “brew” party, what about you? If you can’t find the items I used in this post you can click on ANY of the links below the pictures and order from one site! Hey, I am just trying to make your life easy.

I think everything looks clean and crisp. Kind of reminds me of a sterile hospital room.

Still want coffee?

HOW TO DIY YOUR HALLOWEEN PARTY DECOR

I purchased these mugs from World Market and dressed up the handle with glitter. Glitter will always make things better.

EASY DECOUPAGE ON GLASS TUTORIAL PARTY MUGS  To start you will place stencil tape around your handle. Coat the handle with a nice coat of Martha Stewart’s new decoupage. Sprinkle your favorite shade of glitter on the wet decoupage.

Of course I used classic black. Carefully peel the tape off before it dries. You can clean up your mug now easily. Check out what else I decoupaged.

HOW TO DECORATE FOR HALLOWEEN PARTY

Once I removed the tape I sprinkled some more glitter on them before they dried. When they are dry just dust them off with a brush. Remember to let these cure for about 28 days then you can wash them by hand or in the dish washer.

They will stay fully glittered if cured correctly.  HOW TO DECOUPAGE ON GLASS

To add a little spark to the bottom of my mugs I decoupaged some insects to the bottom. When someone lifts their coffee mug a nice bug will be displayed on  the bottom! I think this is my favorite part of the party.

HALLOWEEN PARTY GLITTER MUGS DIY

HALLOWEEN PARTY DECOR

How clever are these test tubes! They come with sticky vintage labels that you can write on. I added a few different things inside of the tubes like chocolate covered coffee beans, strawberry milk and coffee cream. Anything that goes with a coffee party will work.  HALLOWEEN PARTY DIY

ORANGE AND BLACK HALLOWEEN PARTY DECOR DIY

I used some halloween adhesive paper to make flags. I wrapped a piece around a toothpick then cut the paper on the end. These are what my guests’ will stir their coffee with.

SPOOKY HALLOWEEN PARTY

I used some cupcake liners  to put my sugar cubes in. Smart right! SCARY HALLOWEEN PARTY DECORATIONS DIY

To create a coaster for you super chic mugs take a cupcake liner and fold it inside out.

I am not quite sure what I love more white pumpkins, fake pumpkins or a good ole milk glass pumpkin. If you have never heard of a fake milk glass pumpkin then you are in for a real treat. I created some today and they are on the I Love to Create blog. It’s sorta like a “white Fall” instead of a “white Christmas”.

Let’s be real ok. I try my best to think logically when I craft. In other words I think about YOU then ME. 

I know me and Martha are pretty much best friends and all but I am NOT her. With that said I can’t afford to buy 27 real pumpkins and embellish each and every one of them. I have to eat ya know. Which is why I craft with FAKE ones. The kind that you can decorate, store in a huge tupperware then take them out the next year to use all over again. Please tell me I am not the only one who does this. What’s funny is I went in my attic today to look for things I made last year and I couldn’t seem to find anything.

Maybe last year when I was about to put them up I realized it was more work to take down the ladder, walk up the stairs and store them nicely so I just threw them all away. I tend to do cray-cray stuff like that anyways. I will more than likely find what I was looking for when I take down Christams decor.

How to make a Decoupaged Candy Corn Lace Lamp

Decoupaged Lace Lamp

Happy Monday! It’s all about Martha Stewart Crafts decoupage supplies today

When I think of decoupage I always go back to that day in 1st grade when I coated my entire hand with Elmer’s glue. What was I thinking?

The only thing I was missing was painted lace which is why we are using some today for our lamp.

I mean, doesn’t anything look better with lace wrapped around it? Hopefully it won’t turn out like these tights I bought last year. Oh and incase you missed it check out this lace paper I made.

See the entire decoupage line here. I don’t think I will have enough day’s in the week to use all of these awesome products.

lace-lamp-supplies

Today we will turn this boring lamp into an oversized lace candy corn. I know, I know that might seem hard but it’s easy with the materials we have.

You know I have not seen a lace candy corn inspired lamp floating around Pinterest lately so I figured I would give it a go.

lace-lamp-steps

The first thing you want to do is paint your lamp a light background color. Keep it simple because you want the lace to pop and not the lamp shade behind the lace.

how-to-paint-lace

Since a candy corn is bigger on the bottom I tried to mimic that with the lace size. This pack of decoupage lace trim worked perfectly since there were multiple sizes in it.

lamp-lace-painted

how-to-decoupage-lamps

Once your lace is dry it’s time to start applying it to the lamp shade with the decoupage glue. This glue is super smooth and creamy and it’s easy to create a thin even coat with the decoupage brush.

decoupaged-lace-lamp-tutorial

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it gives you a ton of inspiration.  I am certain this will look yummy with all of my Fall decor. Maybe I will try to glue lace to my hand later!
