Team Fun & the Gilded Autumn Pumpkin Home Décor Project

This past weekend I gathered with my Team, The Blue Mountain Stampers for a special biannual event. This event allows us to gather and celebrate everyone’s accomplishments over the last 6 months. We have a special project, along with prizes, and appetizers. So today I thought I’d share our project that we made.

This project was a lot of fun to make and everyone’s turned out differently since they could decide on which patterns they wanted to use. Here is mine.

I really love the colors and patterns of the Gilded Autumn Suite of Products and so I couldn’t resist making a home décor item with them. I also really love the way the little swirls of copper ribbon finish off this project. They are so easy to make – I bet you are wondering how I made them too!

You’ll need a wooden skewer or dowel along with your heat tool and Heavy Spray Starch. Yep, that’s it! You’ll also need a bit of patience as you make them since it does require some dry time tho. I’m not sure how they would hold up outside, but since I’m planning on using this project inside my home I wasn’t worried about our heavy Georgia humidity of late.

Want to see how we made them? Here is a video for you.

The Final Thank You Thursday!

I’ve got some fun last minute Halloween projects that I made and want to share with you today. This first one is a home décor item that I made using our Witches’ Brew Designer Washi Tape.

Don’t you love these fake pumpkins that have available the last few years? I’ve done all kinds of things with them, including having the kids carve a pumpkin that will last forever. For this project I simply cut off the top, added the Witches’ Brew Designer Washi Tape (132156)  in a pattern that made me happy, placed a piece of green foam for flowers and added the mums and leaves. Quick and easy-peasy.

This second project includes some real pumpkins that Larry brought home to sit on my kitchen counter for a pop of fall color.

Sorry about the photos – it’s another rainy day here in North Georgia which can make taking pictures tricky.

I love making little treats for family and friends

Halloween Candy Bar Slider – surprise!

And last but not least I wanted to share a picture that my daughter sent me when she found her little Halloween Candy Bar Slider tucked into her dresser drawer at college – the timing was perfect since they had just had a dorm Halloween event where she dressed up as I Dream of Jeannie and passed out candy. (Seriously – thus the weird eye make up.) She’s such a hoot!
