This fall we have been busy, busy, busy. So busy, in fact, that I haven't had the time or energy to post much. Since I had a couple of reviews I wanted to get up, I thought I'd also take a minute to update you on some of the fun crafts the girls and I have been doing this fall.
Glass Pumpkin Candle Holders. How cute is this glowing family of pumpkins?! With any glass container, acrylic paint and a candle you can make these adorable decorations. I think I had as much fun as the kiddos with this project! We originally put tape on the jars for the faces, so that those parts wouldn't get painted. While they looked great not glowing, we found that when illuminated, you couldn't see the features. By adding black paint to the face, we created pumpkins that looked gorgeous in the light of day or dark of night! :o)
Did you do any new or fun crafts this fall? Are you getting ready to try some winter crafts with your kids? Do you have an old standby that you know always turns out great? I'd love to hear about them! I'm always looking for new activities to try with my girls.
Disclaimer: I cannot take creative credit for any of the crafts pictured above. All craft ideas came from magazines, previous school projects, and items I've seen online and/or in person. Most have been modified to fit supplies I have on hand or ideas I have in my head. I wish I could give credit to the original people that created these ideas, but since I don't know who they are, I cannot. If you know the originator of one of these crafts, please let me know and I will happily give credit.
