Here are nine quick and easy pumpkin decorating projects the entire family can help create with!

ROUND-UP RULE: Please don't pin individual projects from this page.

Spooktacular DIY Stamped Candle Holders

Oh my, what a week I've had. 

I'm not the kind of person who deals well with drama or those who create it. After many attempts to see the brighter side I finally succumbed and had to cut some ties. It was not a pleasant experience but I feel much freer now and it all goes back to that Maya Angelou saying, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them." Indeed. 

You know my favorite way to forget about troubles? Yeah, I craft. I've been on a stamping binge and because it's been a while since my last clay project I thought it was time to mix these two mediums together again. These easy to make Halloween candle holders are simply spooktacular. Even my 17 year old son picked one up and said, incredulously I should add, "You made this?" 

Yep, they're that cool. Here's a breakdown of what you need to make your own Halloween Candle Holders!

Craft Lightning: Halloween Edition - Poseable Mummies

Craft Lightning time again and for this year's Halloween Edition we have poseable mummies!

Over the years I have loved being a part of Angie and Caroline's Craft Lightning Series and challenging myself to create a cool craft that can come together within 15 minutes. Last year I was on a major tin can kick when Craft Lightning time rolled around, the year before that I was painting tree branches, 2015 it's all about the Mummy!

As you can see in the picture above, Poseable Mummies aren't just easy crafting they're also perfect for a little Halloween fun. The kids and I had a blast posing Osiris (yes, our mummy has a name) around the house. I've already made a couple friends for him, Tut and Cleo.

Here's the rundown on how to make your own family of mummies to pose throughout your house this Halloween.
