Craft Challenge

Over at Blue Eyed Blessings, Heidi does a monthly craft challenge. This is my first entry in the challenge. Unfortunately, I was a little late reading her post about it, so I didn't have much time to do something.

door paintingThis first one is one I did yesterday. I took some of my washable paints, mixed them with a little dish soap and then painted on the sliding patio door. I don't remember where I saw it, but the soap is to make it easier to come off when we're done.

This one I did a few years ago, I took a regular clay flower pot and painted it with acrylic paints and then sealed it with a clear spray paint. I think I used a Sharpie for the face. I usually use it as a candy dish on my desk, this year I sat a yogurt cup in it and put cut flowers in it. I've done a pumpkin like this too, only I used the saucer that goes under the pot as the top of the pumpkin and I painted a jack-o-lantern face on it. I haven't gotten it out yet this year.

That's it for now! I'm hoping to do more crafts for Halloween, but haven't gotten to it yet. I'm also hoping to do more Monthly Craft Challenges when Heidi posts them.

Hi Caroline...thanks for commenting today. I found the rubik's cube at Michael's for $1. So, hopefully that will ring a bell for you! :) (I HATE wondering where I saw something and now need it....)

Oh, that candy corn face is adorable! What a super cute idea that is. I like what you're explaining with the pumpkin, too. I hope you show that! What a nifty idea to draw a scene on the glass to add a little Fall decor touch that can just be washed away.

Thanks for joining in this month's craft challenge. It's so great to "see" a new face! ;)
