A cute pumpkin to make with my DIY Cactus Pumpkin is this little DIY Llama Pumpkin! Llamas have been popping up all over the place. Llama decor and parties are the latest trend and let me tell you they are the cutest trend ever! I want llamas, the real ones but also some cute decorations. I don’t think my hubby would go for the llama decor in the house. For now I will stick to the cute little llama crafts. This is a fun pumpkin to make with kids but I’m not going to lie I was more into it than my daughter. She’s more of a penguin gal. However, we do love to feed the llamas at the zoo. This llama pumpkin is really simple to make. It took me less than half an hour. It is also real cheap to make I got materials from the dollar tree! For the face you can draw it like mine or look up llama pictures for inspiration. I added a flower crown but you can do it without the flowers as well.
I grew up in the desert where we have more cacti than pumpkins. I love how cactus have become trendy! They look so cute in craft form. Also as far as plants go it’s the only kind I can keep alive. We had about 10 indoor plants. Only 2 of them have survived my black thumb and one of them is a cactus. I made this cactus pumpkin from a dollar store foam pumpkin. It was incredibly easy to make and look how cute! You can also draw a little face on it. Plus nothing in this project is living so no chance of killing it. The best thing about this diy pumpkin craft is how incredibly simple it is to make. Seriously, anyone can make it and make it for a simple pumpkin craft.
It’s fall y’all! Ok it’s still hot here, but I’m ready for some fall decorations and crafts. I’ve seen adorable unicorn pumpkins for Halloween and I wanted to put a little fall spin on them. This cute fall unicorn pumpkin turned out even cuter than I had expected! I think I might need to make a unicorn for all seasons. Winter or Christmas unicorn is coming next. Thinking off the top of my head I’m thinking some kind of snow globe unicorn. Maybe a snowman unicorn. You can really incorporate unicorns into all occasions! Anyways back to the cute fall unicorn pumpkin. All of the materials are from the dollar tree. I have been having fun in that place for fall crafts. There small foam pumpkins have worked out perfect for decorating. I have two more cute pumpkin decorating ideas coming up, stay tuned! Hint one of them involves the desert and the other some kind of animal. All of my pumpkin crafts can be made with kids or just for fun adult crafts. If you are a mature unicorn kind of adult. Adulting so hard!
This craft is just the cutest fall craft for kids. My daughter actually wanted to make these and sometimes she is hard to please with crafts. She used to be really in to crafts but lately it’s hard to find crafts that compete with Roblox. Sometimes I have to get her to put down the electronics and make some old fashioned crafts! She had fun making these popsicle stick leaf dolls. Crafting is fun with a little partner. She doesn’t always love my original ideas, she has to change something to make it her own. I love her creativity, she is sooo my child. These dolls are really simple to make and your kid can put their own spin on it like my daughter did. Hers had its tongue sticking out and it’s hair down how she usually wears her hair. They both had the cute leaf skirts. You can paint on the top or draw it. You could also make a leaf top! Since crafts are just for fun let kids use their own personality and create it the way they want. I just provide the basic craft and let the kiddo let loose!
I have been out of blogging for far to long and I missed my creative crafty time! I’m pregnant and my craft time has been taken over by nap time. However, I got a surge of energy and now I’m back at it with some fun fall projects. My daughter and I made some cute leaf projects with Dollar Tree faux leafs. You can also use real leaves you collect, we just don’t have those as available here. In the fall here we get more butterflies than falling leaves. We live in Florida and don’t have the full four seasons. I love the idea of fall, but I don’t know if I could handle a traditional cold winter. We only get a couple tiny falling leaves, but we do have the monarch butterflies migrating through this area in October. It’s a magical experience to be surrounded by tons of butterflies! I love butterflies. The monarchs are my favorite along with blue butterflies. The great thing about this butterfly leaf craft is they wont fly away from you. You an keep them to play with over and over again.
I always want to do cute things for back to school for my daughter. Then suddenly back to school creeps up on me and I haven’t done anything. That is why I have decided this year to try a few simple ideas for back to school. These fruit roll up apple pops are an easy snack. Kids will love them because duh they are fruit roll ups and they look like little apples, what’s not to like?! You get bonus mom points and you didn’t really have to make anything, score! Perfect for lazy moms like myself. Well not really lazy more like who’s got time when you have to get kids ready for school that take an hour to pick out socks. Not to name any names ;).
Fall is such a lovely time isn’t it?! It is a time for all things pumpkin. I love love all of the pumpkin stuff. I load up on all things pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, lattes, spice, and pies. Then by the end of pumpkin season I feel like I never want to see anything pumpkin ever again. By the time fall comes around the next year I am ready for it again! I made some fall printables to show my love for fall. Pumpkin spice and everything nice! I also made a Hello, Fall one and you can grab them down below. Whichever one tickles your fancy. I know not everyone is into the pumpkin spice. I personally have come around to love it, but that wasn’t always the case. When I first tried a pumpkin spice latte I wasn’t a fan. Now I can’t get enough. It’s like when you hear a song and think what is this terrible assault on my ears. Then after the tenth time you are humming along. After the twentieth time you are full on car dancing and loving it! It only took me about twenty pumpkin spice lattes to really fall in love. I’m kidding it was really only about five.
I am so ready for it to feel like fall. I live in Phoenix, Arizona where we don’t exactly have seasons. There is the hot season and nice season. “Fall” doesn’t really happen, we don’t get a lot of changing leaves. When I lived in California the street I lived in had a ton of changing leaves in October. I really miss taking walks down that street with all the beautiful colors. I would still like to pretend it is fallish here. The weather is finally getting a bit nicer out and as soon as I can I will bring out the fall wardrobe. I love cozy clothes scarfs, boots, and baggy sweaters. Yay, it is almost that time, once it drops below 90 degrees! I am getting in the fall mood with these cute candy fall trees. They are adorable and just made out of candy.
