Went back to To the Dollar Tree yesterday with my daughter and got a couple supplies for crafting.
But before I show you that, I wanted to share what I got at Dollar General.
They had the cutest silicone molds.
Well, actually they are calling them ice trays, but I am going to use them for making tarts.
Aren’t these just the cutest!
They are bendable too! Not that horrible hard plastic.
And can’t beat the price! $1.00
I also picked up these silhouette Owls, but I have no idea what I will do with them.
And aren't these wonderful.
I bought the candy corn color, but they also have solid orange and black ones.
I believe the price for these were around $3.00.
Which brings me to the crafting part of my post.
I wanted to make a twig tree for my front porch.
So yesterday Mom and I gathered up some branches and carried them home with us when we went for our morning walk.
I decided to drill a hole through the top and bottom of one of my faux pumpkins and stick the branches through it.
I wanted the branches to go all the way through, so I could stick them into the dirt that remained in the
chamber flower pot.
I thought this might help secure it when the fall winds begin…. we will see. ;)
Then I took one box of my DG Halloween lights and wrapped it around the branches.
Still needed more though.
Which brings me to what I got at the DT yesterday.
I picked up 3 black crows.
They have wire sticking out of their feet so it made it easy to attach them to the branches.
Now before I show you how it turned out, I want to say…
I don't consider it finished yet, I want to pick up some berry garland and wrap it around the branches like I did with the one in the foyer.
Plus I am wanting to stick some Spanish Moss where the sticks go into the pumpkin, just need to run to Wal-Mart and pick some up.
But I wanted to go ahead and show off how it looks so far.
It was simple easy to make!
Here it is for now….
Kinda Cute, huh?!
A little bare yes, it needs those berry for color and to help hide the cord.
But I think it is a really cute idea!!
See there’s my wreath I made the other day. ;)
I’ve been working on decorating my porch the past few days. Still not done yet. I will be sure to show it off as soon as I get it finished.
Here is a close-up of the Dollar Tree crows.
And a close-up showing how simple it is to stick the branches into the pumpkin, once you drill out the orange exterior.
The pumpkin centers are star foam and these type of pumpkins can be found pretty much anywhere.
I believe mine came from either Wal-Mart or Target.
And here is a shot of it all lit up at night.
Before I sign off I wanted to show the little
ice trays molds I picked up at the Dollar Tree.
I think I like these better than the ones I got a DG.
These are more Fall, rather than the Jack-O’ Lantern design, which makes me think Halloween only.
Now I must go sew!!
I have so much to get caught up on.
The deadline for the charity auction is getting closer and closer and I haven't finished anything for it.
Plus I still have those bear orders to get finished!!
I need more hours in the day. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Take Care & Talk Soon,
