Painted Gourds

Standard

So as you all know last month I had an obsession with pumpkins (lol.) Well now its November and my obsession has moved to gourds…painted ones to be exact. I was browsing a few ideas online because my mantel piece is looking kind of drab and came across these!

 

Photobucket

 

What a simple wonderful idea!

 

What you will need:

Can of white glossy spray paint

Small gourds

Small pumpkins

wreath.

Ribbon.

 

First you will need a surface to spray paint on, I would suggest laying down some news paper and placing your items on there before painting.

 

Spray paint all the items including anything that may be on wreath.

 

After it drys wrap the ribbon around the wreath.

 

You can use this as a centerpiece on the table like shown in the picture above or you can use them on the mantel piece like in the picture below

I love this idea, its so simple and pretty cheap as well. Craft stores usually have discounts and coupons in papers or on receipts which can really come in handy!

Pretty-Easy Centerpiece.

Standard

This easy Thanksgiving centerpiece pumpkin craft is simple and looks beautiful on any Thanksgiving table.

What you need:

Fall leaves (fake), small pinecones, sprigs of berries, fall flowers, ribbons, or other small fall decorations. 
Small pumpkin
Marker
Tall, but not thin candle (comparable size to the pumpkin)
Glue
Knife (adult supervision is needed when doing this project with children)

Directions:

  1. Remove as much of the stem of the pumpkin as possible without physically cutting into the pumpkin.
  2. Place candle on top of the pumpkin and using your marker, trace around the bottom of it.
  3. Cut a hole for the candle in the pumpkin, using your tracing as a guide and staying as close to it as possible (the more snug the candle fits, the better.)
  4. Place candle in the pumpkin and use glue to adhere fall leaves or sprigs around the edges of the opening (you may need to press some inside of the opening to secure the candle into place). 
  5. Allow centerpiece to dry before using.

5 Fun Fall Family Activities!

Standard

Personally Fall is my favorite time of year, the weather is perfect the food is good and best of all its football season!  I’ve came up with my top 5 favorite things to do in the fall.

 

 

1. Hit up the pumpkin patch.

My kids LOVE going to the pumpkin patch and there is so much that you can do with the pumpkins you pick! 

 

2. Go to the park.

Go to the park and have a picnic lunch,take pictures of the changing leaves pick up a few for crafts and don’t forget the pine cones!

 

3. Go to Local attractions.

I know here we have a park where the kids can really get hands on, its set in the 1800’s so the kids can pick peanuts,cotton,corn and see demenstrations done by the park staff. Explore the general store, visit the old school house and so much more! 

4. Go to Local events

Fall is the best time to go to local festivals and parades! I always rack up on handmade crafts and craft ideas!

 

 

 

5. Go to a highschool Football game!

Nothing like rooting on the home team! We go to every home game, Its cheap, the food is good, the kids love to show their school spirit and the weather is perfect.
