Top 2 Tuesday - Halloween Crafts/Decor/Party Ideas AND a New Blog Design

Top 2 Tuesday

Halloween or Fall crafts/decor/party ideas

I have done a few DIY projects this year for Halloween
[for some reason I was totally into doing a few DIY projects this year]

1. Polka Dot Pumpkins
I used a carvable pumpkin so I only had to do this project once -rather than once a year
To carve the pumpkins - just use an apple corer [careful because if you push to hard you will have a MUCH larger hole than just the corer - let me tell you I can speak from experience!]
i put marks on the pumpkin to where i needed to punch holes
and i cut a hole in the bottom of the pumpkin and inserted a battery operated tea light

2. Young Trick-Or-Treaters Treat
i used a drill and made holes and then inserted into all of suckers
i once again used a carvable pumpkin so I can re-use this next year

a boa wreath - an inspiration from a target wreath
EEK picture frames
candy corn cupcakes

now head on over to Taylor's blog to check out other bloggers Halloween Crafts/Decor/Party Ideas

i'm sure that you have noticed - i got a blog make-over
Lauren at Blue Lux re-did my blog and she did an AMAZING job
