FALL Blocks DIY

While relaxing tonight, I decided to make a quick fall craft. I dug through the miscellaneous craft supplies and found four of these wooden blocks. The letters could easily use a Cricut machine or calligraphy pens but I do not have either at my place so I decided to hand paint the letters. Next time I would definitely use a calligraphy pen for clearer lines. While working on this, I thought of how I would like to improve my lettering skills. Comment below with what you would recommend to learn and improve!

Repurposed Terra Cotta Pot – Scarecrow

We had so much fun making the pumpkin candy containers that we thought we would give another go at a terra cotta pot transformation. I’ve seen a few happy scarecrows but have never attempted to draw one myself (P.S. if looking for cartoon scarecrow faces online, make sure to type in “happy cartoon scarecrow face” or you might have nightmares that night haha).

DIY Pumpkin Candy Container

It did get us thinking about what candy to fill it with when it is time to put it out as a decoration. We went a little nostalgic too. Anyone remember the Mary Jane candies? It’s a peanut butter molasses taffy like candy that we would get when I was little around Halloween. I’m not sure if they still make them but I will definitely be checking in about a month from now. What candy would you fill these fall pumpkin candy containers with?

Candy, Dracula, and Ghosts OH MY

With “Monster Mash”, “Thriller”, and all the classic Halloween party songs playing in the background, we settled into our way of unwinding from a busy week – crafting. Mason jars are such a fun Halloween craft that people of all ages and skill level can do (Plus, we filled ours with candy which makes it even more appealing. #halloweencandyobsessed)! Whether you want to make a candy corn or a whimsical character, painting mason jars allow your imagination to run wild. With endless ideas in mind we narrowed it down to the ones below.
