It’s starting to look more like fall around here. Both outside and inside my home!

This year I wanted to do something new with my pumpkins. I had never decoupaged a pumpkin before so I thought this would be a fun little craft to try. It turned out to be super easy to do! 

My pumpkin only took me about 30 minutes to complete with about an additional hour for drying time.

For this project you will need to grab a few products:

 

  • decoupage paper
  • decoupage finish
  • craft paint brush
  • pumpkin

Little Mermaid Costume Tutorial

little-mermaid-halloween-costume

This might be one of the cutest little girl halloween costumes I have ever seen. It isn’t too complicated and it will be truly loved by any little girl who gets to show it off.

This tutorial is from Lindsay at www.twobobbinslater.com. She actually made two costumes because her daughter wanted to wear the one she made constantly, so she made another so the original would stay nice for a night of trick-or-treating.

Little Mermaid is a movie that is still loved today. I couldn’t get enough of that movie when I was a child, and it is so cute to me to see that it is still a fave of the kids today.

This is a two part tutorial. In the first tutorial, Lindsay shows you step-by-step how to make the leotard with the seashells.

In part two, Lindsay shows you how to make the Little Mermaid Skirt. This couldn’t’ be easier, especially the way Lindsay explains each step in detail with an accompanied photo.
