So with me having the week off and Halloween coming up I decide to do some craft stuff. I love decorating for Autumn/Halloween. I just wish it was chilly like it back on the east coast. 😦 I miss chilly weather. I think I decorate more here because I’m trying to put myself in the mood for the upcoming holidays. It does not feel like the holidays are around the corner. Although, Christmas is coming soon and we are going home (Jason’s leave permitting!).
On to the craft. The kids and I painted pumpkins, we cannot carve pumpkins here. The heat makes them mold and the ants LOVE pumpkins. So we paint them. I think last years pumpkins were cuter, but this year wasn’t too bad.
(By the way, pinterest is “da bomb”. I love that website. If you haven’t heard of it or joined it – you should if you want to get craft/decorating/photo ideas. It’s like having a favorites folder/binder with you everywhere )
Here are my inspiration pictures…
I put the owl pumpkin up so you can get a good laugh. 😉
The owl wreath idea came from this Etsy seller, so if you like it and are not motivated to make one of your own.. you can buy one. 🙂 She has several cute wreaths and I want to make/buy all of them!
Here is my owl pumpkin and owl wreath:
And here are our other pictures from this week. 🙂 Enjoy!
