I don't do a lot of seasonal decorating, but I did create something recently that I liked and wanted to share.
This is a CHEAP craft which is awesome if you ask me.
Here are the ingredients :)
Carvable Foam Pumpkin $1 from Dollar Tree
Elmer's spray adhesive
If your smart (unlike me) and don't want to feel like a troll with hairy fingers at the end of the project, I suggest wearing gloves :)
I suggest following the safety precautions on the spray adhesive and doing this project in a ventilated area. Protect your work-surface with something you can throw away (newspaper, cardboard...) and don't wear nice clothes.
I started by spraying the stem of the pumpkin with the adhesive and then wrapped the jute around. Little by little I sprayed and wrapped, until Voila it was done. I should say it took me close to a half hour, but I really liked it!
I added a few burlap rosettes, made by a lovely lady in my MOPS group.
Enjoy this season.
I am often tempted to let my mind be overwhelmed by what I don't have or what is going wrong. This morning I was reminded to take deep breaths of the crisp air, drink tea, and give thanks for all of the blessings in my life.
