I dread the idea of carving a pumpkin at Halloween. It’s messy and they never turn out how I want. I found a new way to decorate a pumpkin easily! No carve pumpkin decorations is WAY easier than trying to carve a real pumpkin. I found this in a magazine from years ago and it has been such an easy, no-fuss and fun way to decorate pumpkins.
No-Carve Pumpkin Decorations!
Gather these supplies
black spray paint (optional)
real pumpkin or get a fake one from the craft store
package of adhesive googly eyes in assorted sizes
craft glue or colored glue
In a ventilated area, cover floor with newspaper. Spray-paint pumpkin black and let it dry.
Put the googly eyes all over pumpkin. Use glue to secure eyes if adhesive doesn’t hold.
Spider Web Pumpkin
Get Colored Glue and make a spider web on the pumpkin! See these web stencils.
Pick up spider stickers or other creepy stickers and decorate the pumpkin. Or use a stencil of a spider and spray-paint a spider on the pumpkin.
When the twins were young we really went through the applesauce. I quickly figured out how to save some money on applesauce and learned through experimenting my families favorite way for me to make homemade applesauce. Now, I use the applesauce on our oatmeal, topped on yogurt with chopped nuts and I even add it to our fruit smoothies for extra flavor! And of course, just plain with a bit more cinnamon sprinkled on top.
Using the crockpot seems to be the easiest way for me to make it because I can walk away and it cooks up perfectly every time. Right now Honey Crisp apples are on sale and I ordered a case from Bountiful Baskets.
If you just don’t want to make homemade applesauce, grab an applesauce coupon from the Free Coupon Database to get a better deal at the store.
Did you know you can get a FREE Nothing Bundt Cake on your birthday! Yes! Get a FREE Bundtlet on your birthday plus other exclusive offers when you join their e-club! What is your favorite Bundt cake flavor? Mine’s lemon, but cinnamon swirl is pretty spectacular too.
Hot Tip: I don’t use my actually birthday on every birthday freebie otherwise it’s too many freebies all at one time. I use our anniversary for some and a random month for others to spread out the free stuff!!
Dryer sheets! Even after they have gone through the dryer they have just enough freshness left to still be put to use. Just place one in the bottom of a clean garbage can, then put in your plastic liner.
This helps me SO much on the days when I am dragging having a hard time with motivation. Set a timer at 10-15 minutes intervals. Do as much focused work as possible during that time. It works wonders in helping to stay focused and work quickly. I’m motivated and sprinting through the work efficiently knowing the limited time I have to get the task done. Plus, it makes it seem more like a game to “beat the clock”. This works wonders for me maybe it will work for you. I find my work gets completed quicker and I can move onto what I really want to do.
