Every Halloween after all the trick-or-treating I have to take my kids candy away. It sucks, but they are used to it. I typically open a 'Halloween Store' where the kids pay me candy for a toy. This way nobody feels cheated. Plus there are always a few pieces of safe candy that pass my inspection and the kids get to eat. I have to do this because my son has a severe peanut allergy. Imagine if this year when we went trick-or-treating we stumbled upon a slew of teal pumpkins on doorsteps alerting me that this house gives out food allergy friendly treats. We could come home with a bag full of tattoos, bracelets, stickers and I could close down the store. A girl can hope right? This year FARE has started the #tealpumpkinproject and I have 10 crafty ways to inspire you to jump on the bandwagon this Halloween.
The rumors are true: you can decoupage anything, even a pumpkin. Grab a bottle of Collage Pauge and get busy with some fabric scraps. I cut my scraps with pinking sheers and used vintage mix-matched teal scraps for a retro look.
I have a confession: I did not make this pumpkin, Target did. However, it would be super easy to make yourself with some Tacky Glue and teal Tulip Glitter.
Speaking of glitter I did make this polka dot pumpkin. Using a round brush dipped in Tacky Glue I made dots. While the glue was still wet I sprinkled on teal Tulip glitter.
I had to give the obligatory melted crayon pumpkin a spin. I think my kids had the most fun helping me make this one.
