Pumpkin decorating!

Hello, my bucket list friends I recently finished decorating two pumpkins that I got at the pumpkin patch. I had a fun time decorating them and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Let’s get to it!

Pumpkin decorating

For my first pumpkin I decided to paint it with the blue and green paint that I got from Michaels. I had fun covering my pumpkin in dots! This is a very simple but very fun way to decorate. I also painted some lines going down the pumpkin. I really liked the overall look of this pumpkin when I finished it. For the next pumpkin I decorated it using a bag of wooden beads from the Dollar Tree. I simply glued the colorful wooden beads on to the pumpkin using my hot glue gun. I decided to do a circle of beads around the top of the pumpkin. Then I used the beads to make a happy face on the pumpkin. I had a lot of fun with this pumpkin decorating project ! Are you decorating pumpkins this year?

Mess free glitter art !?

Hello, my bucket list friends! Monday I did one of my favorite and much needed stress relieving activities art! I decided to look through a bunch of my art and craft kits and chose one. I decided to do a craft kit that was different for the ones I useally do. This Melissa and Doug craft kit said that it made mess free glitter art. If you are a fan of arts and crafts you know that mess free and glitter are two things that normally don’t go together. I was curious to see how this would work out. It took me a little while to figure out how this kit worked but once I did it was a lot of fun! The kit came with two pictures that you decorated the glitter sheets that came with the kit. The pictures had stickers that you removed then you pressed the glitter sheets on to sticky part that the sticker covered. A few times I accidentally used the wrong side of the glitter sheets but luckily I was able to recover from that mistake. In my opinion the kit really lived up to it’s promise of mess free glitter art. I was really happy with the way the art turned out and now that I know how to use these kits I would love to do more in the future!

A bunch of American Girl magazines

Hello, my bucket list friends ! My last E bay Order recently arrived and it was a box full of a whole bunch of American Girl magazines. I’ve been having a great time looking through them and I can’t wait to tell you all about it here we go !

 

A bunch of American Girl magazines

I bought a bunch of American Girl¬† magazines on Ebay. The magazines range in year from 1997 to 2005. It’s interesting to see how the look of the magazines changed over the years. In one of the magazines from 2005 there was an insert that had paper door hangers that you could cut out. I picked out the one I liked the best wrote my name on it and put it on my door.¬† The magazines are filled with interesting stories and tons of great ideas for cooking projects, games and arts and crafts projects. I can’t wait to try out some of the ideas in the magazines! I also I can’t wait to tell you all about it once I do some of the fun project ideas that the magazines have to offer.

Summertime Arts and Crafts !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! The sunny days of summertime are a perfect time to get creative! I have three projects that I recently finished and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. Here we go!

 

Summertime Arts and Crafts !

The first summertime craft I’m gonna tell you about is this awesome Disney necklace kit that I bought at CVS. This small kit contained everything needed to make the perfect Disney necklace. The necklace it’s self was easy to get started. I just opened the necklace by pulling the connectors apart then putting on the beads. I decided to put the beads in big color blocks. Then when I was done with that, it was time to put on the super cute Minnie Mouse charm and then this awesome craft was complete!

 

 

Craft number two was a set of wooden animals that I bought at the Goodwill. The idea of this craft kit was to put the animals together and then glue extra pieces on to some of the animals. I decided to put a few of the animals together then I painted them with water color paint. I didn’t follow the directions on this kit exactly but I’m happy with how I chose to make the animals. I didn’t make all the animals in the kit but the ones I did make are so cute and I’m happy with the way they turned out.

 

The last craft I’m going to tell you about was not a craft kit at all. I saved the Starbucks cup from the s’mores frappuccino that I got on June first. I decorated the cup with all kinds of fun stickers! I had a fun time going through my big box of stickers and choosing the perfect ones to decorate the cup with. Now, it’s the perfect pencil holder!
