Okay. I love Halloween. I love decorating for Halloween. I love creeping out the neighbors. I am that girl. If you are too, you will want to follow along as I create some paper lantern hanging ghosts below and show you how to hang them. Hanging them should be easy right? It is now! This post is brought to you by 3M Command products new outdoor product line and let me tell you I am thrilled. I can now dress up my outdoor areas as must as I want then take it down at the end of the season without damaging any surfaces.
I love using outdoor Halloween decor to make a super spooky entry for any trick or treaters. A huge thank you to Dollar General for sponsoring this post and allowing me to shop their amazing store for my supplies. You can get all of your supplies at Dollar General as well to make your front entry look just like mine. Super spooky with a little bit of blood as well. Scare the little goblins this year with these fun ideas.
Start a bonfire and try one of my five s’mores recipes tonight. You know you want some of delicious variations on the traditional s’more. These are so simple to make that you can try all of the recipes in a s’mores tasting party. Of course you can just put the ingredients for one of these out next to the traditional version if you are feeling a little less adventurous.
You can make your own ring toss game for fun with adults and kids. Grab some wood trays and decorative bottles to make this fun game at home. This one can be played indoors or out so be sure to make your own today as those dreary days of winter are ahead. This one was first posted over at the Darice blog but I thought y’all might enjoy it as well.
I have been in love with the idea of creating crate tables. Crates are readily available now and are super sturdy. Lets put them to the test and create four ways to use them for side tables….indoors or out! These four ideas are just the beginning. What other way can you think of to use crates for furniture? It is such a great look and super inexpensive. This post was first posted over at the Darice blog as part of my design team status but I am sharing it here in case you missed it.
Grab the kids and make one more craft together before the end of summer. This bird seed monogram is a wonderful addition to the outdoors. It is easy for kids to make plus the birds will love this little gift once you hang it in a tree. This tutorial was originally posted over at Crafts Unleashed but I am posting it here in case you missed it.
It is time once again for my monthly post using items from Old Time Pottery. This month is a project I love! My globe solar light is sure to be the star of your garden or outdoor area. You can make these easily with common items. Give your outdoors a makeover and light up the night with these simple solar lights.
I made this outdoor serving tray for the DecoArt blog over a year ago. It has held up so well and has been so useful around our home that I thought I would share it here today. I am a part of the DecoArt design team however all projects and opinions are my own. Are you ready to make your own version of this outdoor serving tray? I promise it is not as hard as it looks!
I always like to throw in a few projects in the summer that my kids will enjoy. This backyard teepee idea was one of those. My son loved helping with this project. He is nine and loves to build things so this one was perfect. You can assemble this entire teepee in less than 30 minutes with no tools and all with items from Dollar General. You think that is impossible? Let me show you that it is in fact possible!
I have a fun afternoon project for you this morning. My ombre log table for outdoors is a quick and easy project that will add a touch of fun to any outdoor space at your home. Yep we are turning just a regular log into a fun table with just a little paint. Make sure to tell everyone you know that you are looking for a log this year. I am a member of the DecoArt design team and this post is in conjunction with that. All projects and opinions are my own however. This project was posted last year over at the DecoArt blog but I wanted to put it here as well in case y’all missed it.
