Happy Halloween {DIYs}

Happy Halloween! Halloween is my favorite time of the year. I love the crisp Fall weather, cozy knits, and pretty hues. I got creative today with some festive DIYs. With inspiration from my favorite color combo, I decorated a pumpkin, by painting it mint and sprinkling Martha Stewart gold glitter.

When I spotted the recipe for these No-Bake Pumpkin Spice Cookie Balls on the Free People blog, I couldn’t wait to get home to make them! I’m so glad I did, because they are delicious! If you love anything pumpkin, you have to try this vegan and gluten-free recipe.

By now, you’re probably fully aware of my obsession with nail polish. I created a fun Candy Corn inspired design for the Holiday.

  1. Start by painting your nails solid orange. Let dry completely.
  2. Cut thin strips of tape and place one in the middle of each finger nail.
  3. Paint the tip of nail yellow & the bottom of the nail white. Let dry completely.
  4. Pull off tape & apply a quick drying top coat. (I like Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.)

  1. Can you give us instructions on how you glittered your pumpkin? What kind of glue did you use, and I love how you graduated the glitter just on the top ( how did you achieve that) did yo use fine or course glitter? It really turned out pretty.

    1. Thank you! I actually painted the pumpkin using all purpose craft paint and sprinkled Martha Stewart fine glitter while the paint was still wet. I focused sprinkling near the stem of the pumpkin, letting the rest gradually fall down it. Holding the glitter high above the pumpkin will also give this effect. πŸ™‚ Thank you for reading!
