From playful pumpkins to spooky sights, Michaels has everything you need to MAKE it Spooky this fall!

It’s always good to raise awareness of food allergies this season and promote inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season. That is what the Teal Pumpkin Project is all about! Check out my other projects I have created for Michaels HERE

The safety of kids being able to trick or treat and receive allergy free treats is key! CLICK HERE for more information about what you should do if you want to participate in this.  Faux Pumpkin ♥ Teal Paint ♥ Mod Podge ♥ Teal Glitter ♥ Craft Brush

You can purchase all of the items I used in this project from Michaels. I’ve attached the links above to each item so you can order strait from the comfort of your home!
I specifically chose a paint that was designed for outdoors! On the flip side I am a true fan of Folk Art paints so this was a win/win for me. Can we all take a moment to swoon over this specific color…drooling! 

You can use this paint on so many different materials like metal, terra cotta, wood and any other outdoor craft surface that you can think of! Remember these pumpkins are going to be outdoors so using an outdoor paint is ideal. 

The awesome news is you can pour tons of love into making beautiful faux pumpkins and they will never rot! Simply store them in a safe container and they will be ready to use the next year. 

Why teal? 
Teal is the color of food allergy awareness. It has been used to raise awareness about this serious medical condition for nearly 20 years.
Step 1: Paint the top portion of your pumpkin with the first coat. Once it’s dry paint the bottom and let it dry. I always like to apply a second coat so it looks completely painted.  This is what it will look like when you have two coats. If you are wondering why my top has some of the pumpkin showing through it’s because I will be pouring tons of luscious glitter there. Are you feeling all giddy inside yet?  There is multiple formulas for Mod Podge however the gloss finish is my all time go to. It adds just enough shine to finish off any project I am working on. If you’ve never used this product, it’s a decoupage glue and sealer.

Tip: If you have never used this product it is white in the beginning but don’t worry friends it dries clear! Did I mention this product cleans up with just soap and water and is certified AP nontoxic! This is perfect since we are doing a allergy free pumpkin for Trick or Treaters! 

Step 2:  Grab a craft brush and start adding loads of Mod Podge at the top base of your pumpkin. The thicker the better because the glitter will look very full on the pumpkin.

I hope learning about the Teal Pumpkin Project is going to give you a jump start to making ton’s of teal pumpkins! Step 3: Make sure to apply a small section of Mod Podge at a time since this dries fairly quick. Once you have a section coated literally pour the glitter on top of Mod Podge. I like to pour over a sheet of paper making it easy for me to pour back into the bottle.  This is what it will look like when you do your first section. Continue doing step 2 until your entire top of pumpkin is finished. I will tell you pictures do not do justice because these look like magical candy in person.  When done let it dry then add a layer of Mod Podge on top of glitter. This will seal the glitter so it does not shed.

P.S. If you seal the glitter when you add the Mod Podge on top of glitter it will look really white, but remember it dries clear!  Once I made one I just couldn’t help it, I had to make more! I love how elegant and classy they look!  I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did! See you in the next post, until then hugs from my computer to yours!

Don’t forget to follow me on all of my social media channels because I love all of you to pieces!!!! 



Seriously. If I could eat one craft product it would be collage clay. I am not sure if it’s because it comes in a plastic tube that looks like it would belong in a bakery but all I know is I am HOOKED. BAD! I saw my friends post and it got me thinking about some deep stuff. Check out what else I made with collage clay HERE!

Like how many things can I round up in the house to put this stuff on. The best part is you can sparkle anything with this stuff and change the whole look of it. I think I might jewel bomb my dog, or maybe her dog bowl. Let’s get started!!!!

P.S. If you LOVE all things RAINBOW check this out!

You will need:
*Collage Clay
*Rainbow Jewels
*Ceramic Owl or any other item
*Ribbon (optional) mod podge projects

The coolest thing about Collage Clay is the tips. They really make you feel like you are in a bakery. You MIGHT want to watch your kids if you give them this because it really looks like icing in a bag, hehe! Just for the record I WAS TEMPTED!  Mod Podge Collage Clay Step 1: Start in one section and squeeze some of the collage clay out onto the surface. I am using white since my owl is white.  owl crafts
Step 2: Spread your collage clay around to cover the entire surface. The reason why you want to work on one section at a time is because you don’t want it to dry while you are still applying jewels!  diy owl
Step 3: While the collage clay is wet add the jewels to the item. I mean, I will not lie this project is relaxing and fun. I wasn’t too sure about the jewels at first but once it was all done I seriously was in awe at how beautiful it turned out.  jewled crafts Step 4: Continue the previous steps over the entire product.
easy jewled diy How gorgeous! I love the colors and it screams HAPPINESS!
easy owl crafts I let my owl dry over night but this stuff dries in just a few hours! When it was complete I added a cute black and white striped ribbon around it’s neck. Trust me it finished this baby off!
black and white ribbon It’s like an famous bust of a famous OWL! owls crafts I hope you enjoyed this project because I did! Make sure to check out all of my other CHRISTMAS projects HERE!

Happy freaking Tuesday, yo! I wish I could say I felt as pretty as these gorgeous pink roses but let’s face it, it’s the beginning of a very busy week and I am already foreseeing oily hair days and no makeup. That should make for an interesting combination. If you like flowers then you have to check out what I made for these lovely succulents. I also made some lovely roses here, they are totally NOT real.

DIY VINTAGE BOTTLE LABELS I think the best thing about this this is the polka dots. For real, you know how hard it is to get perfect circles? Well good thing my friend Amy from Mod Podge Rocks created these pretty snazzy stencils. You will never look at polka dots the same, eva!

vintage wooden labels
STEP ONE: The first thing we will do is stain the wood to make it look old and vintage. We will use folk art brown paint to do this. Brush a little bit of paint on the wooden label and then wipe it off with a napkin. You can also add a little water to your brush to thin the paint out.
Simple huh! how to paint wood vintage STEP TWO: Grab your stencil because it’s time to start playing! The great thing is these stencils have some pretty amazing adhesive on the back and let me tell you…these babies stick!

STEP THREE: Carefully stick your stencil on top of your wooden labels then start pouncing with your pouncer. When you are done peel it off right away. Now sing it: “Pounce with your pouncer pounce pounce with your pouncer”

I bet this will get stuck in your head. mod podge rocks stencils I also put a little paint at the top of the wooden label. Pretty snazzy huh.

STEP FOUR: Grab your baker’s twine and cut a small piece. Bring the two ends together then it’s time to boogie woogie.
easy wooden projects STEP FOUR:
(1) Pass the loop through the hole
(2) Take the two ends and pull them through the loop
(3) Slowly pull the two ends
(4) VOILA  wooden diy projects Now it’s time to worship the shit out of your wooden polka dot labels. Put them on anything and everything. Wanna show of your mad DIY skills? Pop this on a gift and write on the back of it. Promise you the person opening that gift will never look at a paper label the same again.  DIY VINTAGE BOTTLE LABELS tutorial Not sure if you are into these that much. Make a mean bunch and give them to someone who will literally love them. It always works, plus you might feel a little “good” inside.  diy vintage labels Now it’s time for me to run off into the DIY sunset with my vintage bottle labels. DIY BOTTLE LABELS Personally I like to just wrap them around bottles for a quick little decor.  diy wooden labels vintage Yep. This surely happened. In the middle of taking pics a big gust of wind gave my bottles a huge air hug. So strong they all decided to lay down and cuddle next to each other.
