. . . for Lauren and Lauren: How to spell pumpkins and two super simple projects

How to spell pumpkins and two super simple projects


I've finally done not one but two craft projects since Addilyn was born.  Both super easy!  The chalkboard one would've been even easier if I knew how to spell pumpkin.
yes. I plan on getting some pupkins this year. 


Thank goodness it was easily fixed.  I originally bought a chalkboard pen to use but it didn't work.  Regular, cheap chalk worked so much better.  


Next is the banner, which honestly took less than ten minutes.  
Which is about the time Addilyn was entertained on her play mat next to me. 
Here are the super simple directions. 


All you need is some burlap, stickers, twine and sharp scissors.  


Cut out 9 triangles (or however many you want.)
I realize that this is a terrible place to take pictures but I was a little stuck as this was next to me. 
And we weren't going to waste anytime moving somewhere else. 


 Sew your triangles to your twine or rope.  You could probably use a hot glue gun as well but with burlap, glue gets quite messy and it was easy to sew. 


Then put your stickers on and hang it up.  And that's it! 


Now it's time to get out the rest of my Fall decorations! I love this time of year!

Girl, you're as gorgeous as ever! But I totally understand the feeling :(

And I love that you're online at crazy times. Usually we're so far behind time-zone-wise that no one likes my posts until morning unless they're mid-night nursing!
