Halloween Tree

Boy, have I missed crafting. Between midterms, a trip to Apple Hill, and birthday party planning, I haven’t had much time to create the million and one things I’ve been wanting to. Currently on my to do list: birthday banner (using my new cricut machine that I’m in love with), bean bags for a party game, table runner for Jay’s party, and a dress for Madi. Here are some of the things I was able to get done.

I seen this great idea over at Write It Down and thought it’d make a great decoration for Jay’s birthday party. Here’s what I did
1. Spray painted the branches black
2. Hot glued fabric onto an old coffee can
3. Glued styrofoam inside then stuck the branches in place
4. I then wrapped a tootsie pop inside white fabric and tied a bow around the neck. Then with a Sharpie drew on the eyes and mouth. 
5. I thought it needed something else so I added the ruffle on top 
Pretty easy, right? 
I {heart} Apple Hill. And of course I love all the yummy things we make with the apples. Like this: 
This was Madi “helping” me make the carmel apples 
And lastly, tonight we carved pumpkins. We all had a great time, mainly because watching Madi go wild over the pumpkin seeds was hilarious!
I hope to finish Jay’s birthday banner tomorrow so I’ll upload that when I’m done. I’m really excited about his party, I can’t believe my little pumpkin isn’t so little anymore!
