Well I want to start this post with some self Pity 😦 lol Ok So I started writing this post a YEAR ago…. I don’t know how I did it but I wasn’t typing on the same page I am now so I wasn’t able to “Save Draft” then yesterday I finally had some time on my hands and low and behold my post was GONE!!!! I was BEYOND heart broken. For those of you that don’t know this yet I really do Hate writing. So why keep a blog? Well as much as I hate writing I love helping people even more. So sitting here at home this is the one way I can think of to help as many people as possible!
Well on to today’s post. Halloween is my personal FAVORITE HOLIDAY! Everyone else in my house though loves Christmas (with the exception of my 3 year old daughter) so most of our decorating budget has always gone with Decorating for Christmas. That hasn’t changed I don’t guess…
Soooo last year was the Special year where All of my Halloween decorating started taking the front burner for a change!
With 3 kids at different schools with different needs I have very few minutes to work with so I have to make them count! Today I want to show you a Craft that was literally takes less than 15 min from start to finish and this is doing it with a 3 year old that will surely give you a ton of ideas on what to do with all the extra pumpkins. So the $5 I have listed above as being the cost of this craft is assuming you have the other Items on hand or similar things that can take it’s place.
It is now October 30th and this is my 3 attempt at finishing this post on time!
- You will need 5 pumpkins (the kind to trick or treat with) to make them exactly like mine
- Bamboo stick- I got a bag of them in Walmart in the Gardening section for under 4 bucks (a few years ago)
- Hot glue Gun
- Duck Tape
- Rubber Mallot for staking into the ground
- Drill with drill bits that will make holes big enough for the Bamboo and a second hole big enough to push the lights thru
- A Maxwell coffee container lid not sure on the other brands but if you don’t have this. Improvise a “Hat” that will keep water out of the top container.
