DIY Turkey Wreath

Tommy turkey came to our house in a fun new way this year. With a newly bare door after Halloween ended, I was itching for a Thanksgiving wreath. Yes, even though I am OBSESSED with Christmas, I also enjoy Thanksgiving and the beautiful decorations that can go along with it (I did have Christmas music playing while we made the wreaths though haha). This fun little wreath was made by both my mom and I. We used a new technique than before for the turkey’s feathers. I’m excited to share the step by step for how to make this little DIY wreath.

*BIG NEWS! We are looking to get our Etsy page up and running in the next few months. If you have seen something on the blog that you want for your home, comment below or follow us here or on our Instagram (take2create) for updates*

DIY Luggage Gift Box

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SWEET BOYFRIEND! It was his birthday over this last weekend, and I wanted to spoil him as much as he spoils me every day. With gift giving holidays, one of my favorite items to give isn’t an item at all. I love giving the gift of time together. Over the years we have seen comedians, musicals, and gone on trips. This year the gift was a trip and I wanted to wrap it in a cute way! Plus if I gave him an envelope, I’m pretty sure he could make a guess what it was. This little luggage gift box was the perfect solution! Do you wrap gifts in creative ways? Comment below with your gift wrap ideas!

Rich and Gooey Pumpkin French Toast

Okay everyone, this pumpkin French toast tasted like pumpkin pie filling and I am OBSESSED. It was rich, gooey, crunchy, and exactly what we needed on a beautiful fall day. This french toast bake was the star of our Halloween themed brunch food and I already want to make it again! I found the recipe at foodnetwork.com, so thank you Marcela Valladolid! My recommendation is to make it in a disposable tin. It makes for quick cleanup after the guests leave. Which is perfect because now it’s your time to relax after all the hard work you put in cooking a delicious meal.

Vampire Pumpkin Painting

This past week, one of my great friends came over to the apartment and we did a girls night. I don’t remember the last time I painted instead of carved a pumpkin and it was a blast! We talked and laughed as we made up some gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (shout out to Trader Joe’s for the mix!), popped open a bottle of champagne for mimosas, and painted. She is an amazing artist, so while she did a portrait of Edward Scissorhands on her pumpkin, I decided to make a fun cartoon vampire mouth.

Comment below with what you will paint on your pumpkin this year for Halloween!
