In this month’s Michaels Makers post I will be showing you how to make homemade halloween costume for dogs. This costume was super fun to make. Not to mention my dog was in the best mood during the entire process, as you can see on her cute little face. When I Michaels told us we had to create a Halloween costume my mind went nuts! I started thinking of so many different things but the one thing that made complete sense was elsa and my dog. So the two got together and they are now living happily ever after. This costume is really easy and I know you can do it! Let’s get started! homemade halloween costume for dogs

Check out Michaels’ Halloween Market lookbook or Halloween Pinterest board for some project favorites, including costumes, personalized pumpkins, porch décor and more. 

YOU WILL NEED… Headband | Yarn | Glue Gun | Fabric Fusion | Blue & White Felt | Tulle in Shades of Blue

MICHAELSMAKERS

STEP ONE… Take your tulle and cut strips the same size. This will vary depending on how big or small your dog it.
STEP TWO …Pass the tulle around the headband and tie a not. Make sure to make the ends even on top before tying the knot.  1 STEP THREE…To make the hair you will wrap your yarn around the back of a chair like below. Put hot glue on a piece of felt then wrap it around the yarn in the middle. This will secure your yarn so it stays in place. When you are done take the yarn off of the chair and cut the “loop” to create two long pieces of hair on each side! It’s that easy.  YARN WIG TUTORIAL STEP FOUR …Time to make the neck tie. I figured I would man up the elsa costume a little.  Cut your felt in small strips.
STEP FIVE…Cut small pieces of fabric fusion and place them on the ends of the felt. Add a second strip of felt directly on top of the fabric fusion to create one long strip of felt.
STEP SIX…To connect the neck piece I added two small pieces of white felt on each end to connect under the body of the dog.

For the hair of elsa, I realize she has a braid but Ceaux Ceaux (co-co) wanted long luscious locks! P.S. To secure the hair I took two pieces from each side and tied it under her chin. Voila! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Make sure to check out the other costumes created by the other Michaels bloggers.

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 am so excited to share with you these 20 Amazing Pumpkin Tutorials. Fall is here and it’s that time of year to break out the pumpkins and show off our best designs. For many it’s a time to experiment and see just how creative you can get with decorating your pumpkins.  Make sure to share this post all over with your friends and family because they might need to see some of these pumpkin babies! I guess it’s appropriate for me to say, “Happy Fall Y’all”…

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!

Happy Halloween Jaderbugs! I was going to post a fun tutorial today, but instead I am taking you to Madame Tussauds in New York . Me and my dad went and had the best time ever. It was amazing seeing these life size people. I felt today was a fun day to share this with you since everyone will be dressing up and becoming who they really want to be!

Madame Tussauds New York

The view is amazing!

If you are ever in New York you must make it to Madame Tussauds. It’s a great experience. The figures are so realistic you will have to touch them to make sure they are not real. Plus, it’s affordable and fun!

I hope everyone has a safe and memorable Halloween! See you in the next post.  ending1

  Pumpkin Cake Toppers

Today I will be sharing an easy project that will dress up any cake or cupcake!

I had so much fun making these pumpkin cake toppers.This is a great craft for kids also!

Pumpkin Cake Topper Supplies

air dry clay cake toppers

The first thing you will do is grab a little ball of air dry clay. Roll it around in your hands until you make a round ball.  how to make clay pumpkins Stick a toothpick through it letting a little piece stick out of the top. Once you do this get another toothpick and draw your lines in the pumpkin.

how to paint clay

Let it dry over night then paint a coat of orange paint all over it. While your orange paint is still wet paint a little brown paint in the cracks. This will add an antique look to it.

VOILA!  How stinking cute are these! You could be a feisty fierce diva and put 10 pumpkins on a piece of cake or you could be simple and put one.

cake toppers
It’s all about DIY today and boy have I got some fun cake toppers for you.

Look, I like balls. I like them so much that I made my own version of “Cake Ball’s.” I know you are probably shaking your head right about now. If you are not I will for you. 

The other night I was sitting in my studio thinking of cute things to add to the top of a cake. The first things that came to my mind was BALLS.

Let’s get started.

YOUWILLNEED Wooden Sticks | Small Christmas Ornaments | Brushes | Paint | Glue Gun | Bakers Twine 

how to paint ornaments supplies

The first thing you will do is paint the paint sticks white. I am using a normal crafting brush for this step.

Next you will get this snazzy little Martha Stewart paint brush. It’s like two brushes in one!

black and white sticks

I grabbed these “balls” last year at Tar-Jay and they are perfect. P.S. Make sure you take the tip off of the ornament. Paint that sucker all black. I had to put about 3 coats on them before I was happy.

This is how they will turn out. I am actually really shocked at how shiny they became after they were completely dry.

When they are done I put a little dab of hot glue on the tip of wooden stick and stuck it inside the ornament. Just hold it for a second till it’s dry.

Put a little hot glue around the tip of ornament then wrap twine around it.

VOILA!

balloon toppers I am so happy with the way they turned out! I know that I did them black but you could do them pink, purple or just leave them the color of the ornament.

Another idea is to do different size ornaments.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Make sure to have fun with your balls… ending

 

 

ST_12_months_of_Martha_Logo-1  GLITTERED SPIDERS

Howdy Hoo Jaderbugs! It’s Monday and I have a ton of glittery happiness for you. Well not technically a “ton” but you understand. It’s all about “Halloween Decoration Ideas” today on the blog. I don’t know if I ever told you just how much I love Halloween and fake spiders. Preferably black ones made of paper.

LOVE.

The one thing that is changing as I am getting older is my Halloween color theme! I do still love the original orange and black but…COLOR makes me happy and jittery inside.  I guess I am sorta like ROY G. BIV’S wife.

I mean if she existed (wink wink).

Glittered Spiders. Supplies

I am so in love with GLITTER. I am not speaking of a “normal” relationship with glitter. You will never find me without glitter. It’s either in my purse or in my hair. <—haha!

Halloween Decoration Ideas Martha Stewart Glitter

The first thing you will do is coat the bottom of your spider with Mod Podge. Quickly sprinkle the spider with glitter before the Mod Podge dries.

I used the tinsel glitter because in the end it almost looks hairy. I think the tinsel glitter is a great choice to add texture to our spiders. I usually use this glitter around the Christmas holiday’s but I figured I would bust it out a little early.

 Orange Glitter

When you buy your paper spiders they come with little round double sided stickers. You will place them on the underneath and stick them on a wall. I absolutely love how they look full of color. PURE HAPPINESS.

I hope you enjoyed this bright and fun tutorial. I would say this is on the “EASY” level but you know what…Sometimes the cutest things just cross your mind and I am here to bring them back! See ya in the next post!

Yes my dear, I went into an enchanted forrest and came out with a golden pumpkin. Today’s post is all about pumpkin decorating ideas. Golly, this is a good one!

Now I know what you are thinking. The only thing I am familiar with is a golden egg. You know for Easter that one golden egg that everyone is dying to find. I don’t think I ever found it. Maybe my brothers cheated and saw where our parents put it.

Sheesh now that I am thinking about it. Maybe they jipped us and never even put out a golden egg. If you like GOLD then you will love these gold glittered paper bags I made. You could use the bags for your Halloween party.

Who cares because today I will show you how to make a super fancy golden pumpkin that will be all yours.

Don’t forget to enter your dog in the Martha Stewart pet contest, they could be FAMOUS!

The paper I am using for this project was pretty easy to find. I think I got it from Walgreens. It’s with all of the tissue paper (near cards) but it’s not like normal tissue paper. It’s like a shiny metallic film. The coolest part is one side is shiny gold and the other side is shiny silver.

goldtissuepaper

You will start by cutting a sheet into squares. The size of the squares does not matter. I actually recommend cutting them in different sizes.

tissuepapergoldpumpkin

Grab your brush and mod podge and start applying the tissue to the pumpkin. I started from the top/center and worked my way down to the bottom. Make sure you overlap the squares so it doesn’t look too “perfect.”

howtomodpodgepumpkin

This is what it will start to look like once you work your way down. Now I will warn you that this paper is thick so in the beginning you might have to apply Mod Podge with a brush but rub your fingers over each strip to make sure they stick to the pumpkin good. If you see pops of orange showing just add a square on top and Mod Podge away.

When you are done covering the entire pumpkin let it dry over night. If you are not familiar with Mod Podge it will look “white” in the beginning but I pinky promise when it dries it will be translucent.

modpodgedgoldpumpkin

To dress up my stem I added a few flat backed jewels to it. If you don’t have jewels you can sprinkle glitter on top or wrap it with bakers twine. The stem could be like that epic moment when you decorate a Christmas tree and add the STAR!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! See you in the next post. I have some exciting things coming so stay tuned! Huge glittery
