Creepy Crawler Toss Halloween Carnival Game

There was a fall festival and our small group was in charge of putting a game together.  I volunteered to make the game, which means my husband was volunteered as well.  We wanted to do something we could make two of so lines could move quicker and this is what we came up with.

We bought these boards from Home Depot for about $6.00 each.  We then got pumpkins buckets from Wal-mart for $1.00 each.

My husband used scrap wood for the back bracket and to make pieces that held the pumpkins in the right spot. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the vinyl lettering and we had bugs for the kids to toss in the bucket.

We were very surprised at how well these held up.  We were even able to lend these out to our in-laws.

Fall Pinterest Craft Night

We decided to do a fall craft night and it was a big success!!DSC_0614.JPG

I did the wine glasses with chalk on the bottom, the younger girls loved this!  I cute the Pinterest images with my silhouette cameo and the same with the water bottle covers!  Click here for the Silhouette Cameo file I used to create the water bottle covers!DSC_0617.JPG

I painted a bunch of Dollar Tree pumpkins with chalkboard spray paint, this way everyone could write down what they brought! DSC_0618.JPG

I also made little bags for everyone to take their goodies home!  Here is the  Silhouette file for the stickers I made! DSC_0620.JPGDSC_0621.JPGDSC_0623.JPGDSC_0624.JPGDSC_0668.JPG

Pumpkin Cupcakes

At our small group I was tasked with bringing dessert!  I knew I wanted to do something fall themed, so I took to Pinterest and found this AMAZING recipe from Cooking Classy! I decorated mine a tad differently.  I am so upset I didn’t get pictures of how I did my own pumpkin candies.  I’ll do my best to explain here.

I got white melting chocolate and added in orange till I got the color I wanted.  I then used a star tip to make the ridges of the pumpkin.  I made a MESS the first few times, found our you need it to be pretty cooled off, in order for it to hold the ridges!  I added the brown stem with the same technique.

If you want pumpkin cupcakes, I definitely recommend this recipe.  I had many people say they don’t like cake but they LOVED these!
