What can I say? I am a slave to my desire to make adorable, autumn-inspired things. In the past few weeks I’ve painted a pumpkin to look like a candy corn and hand-crafted my own Halloween door hanger…and there’s no end in sight! I can’t help it, it’s a sickness.
My inspiration this month has clearly been brought by the colors yellow, orange and white!
So when I spotted these cute Rice Krispie treats, dyed and shaped to look like candy corn, I knew that I would have to make them sometime soon. And that sometime turned out to be last Sunday.
I have been on a crafting kick lately. It must be the nip in the air — finally it doesn’t seem wasteful to be inside!
So even though I’m sure it would have been just as cheap cheaper to have bought a cute Halloween door hanger from Target, I decided to make my own. I was inspired by this blog post, discovered through Pinterest (full tutorial at the link). It seemed like an easy enough craft and it was! I started last Monday and it was done by Tuesday — the hardest part is waiting for the coats of Modpodge to dry.
I hit up Joann’s and bought the wooden letters, some cute scrapbook paper, a bottle of Modpodge and a few fun stickers. Then it was on to the crafting!
My husband brought me home a pumpkin last weekend. It’s too early in the season for carving (even though I really wanted to roast some seeds!), so I decided to paint it instead. Taken straight from Pinterest, I present to you my crafty results.
I pretty much love it! It was super easy and it looks great in the front yard with my succulents keeping it company.
