WHAT YOU NEED:

Yellow paint

Black paint

Green paint

White paint

Orange paint

Sand Paper

Glitter spray

Medium paint brush

Small paint brush

4 planks of wood


These really add a little something to your front porch and are easy to make. I went to Home Depot and found the cheapest wood that was thinner than an inch and had it cut up into three 1 ft long boards and one 10 inch board (most home improvement stores provide wood cutting services free of charge). The cut ends were a bit splintered by the saw, so I picked up some sand paper as well. First, I sanded all of the planks down to my liking, and then painted a white, green, orange, and black coat for each plank with the medium paint brush. I did three coats each (make sure they dry between each coat). I then painted two triangles for the eyes and one triangle for the nose. Following that, I painted a mouth, with a tooth, using the small brush (3 coats). Next, I painted two black circles on the white board for eyes and then a black circle for the mouth using the small brush (2 coats). Then, I freehanded the word ‘BOO’ with yellow paint on the black board (5 coats). For the last plank, I painted a zig-zag line about an inch down from the top of the green board with black paint and then filled it in for the hair. Next, I painted two black circles for the eyes, a line for the nose, and another zig-zag line for the mouth. Finally, I added a few stitches to really give it the “Frankenstein” look. Once the ‘BOO’ plank was dried, I sprayed one coat of the glitter spray over the top to finish it off.

WHAT YOU NEED: 

1 small pumpkin

1 medium pumpkin

1 large pumpkin

3 wooden letters that spell out “BOO”

black and orange spray paint

sliver glitter spray

hot glue gun

Hot glue gun: Walmart

All other supplies: Hobby Lobyy


This pumpkin craft is really easy and turns out super cute. First, I spray painted the small and large sized pumpkins black and the medium sized pumpkin orange. You don’t have to spray paint the medium pumpkin orange, but mine was a little marked up and dirty and the paint covers that right up. The black pumpkins were spray painted with 2 layers. While I let the pumpkins dry I painted each letter for the ‘BOO’ and did two layers on those as well. Once the pumpkins were dry, I sprayed all three with silver glitter. After all the letters and pumpkins were dry, I hot glued the letters to the pumpkins and then glued the pumpkins on top of each other. The hot glue gun I use is high temperature and works really well. It is less than $7 at Walmart. It doesn’t come with the glue sticks, so make sure you get those and that they are the right size for the gun.  Lastly, I painted the stem of the pumpkin on top gold for a little extra touch. Happy Halloween! 🙂

NECKLACE: Kendra Scott

Living in Texas, our Fall days usually become Summer days by noon, so this dress is a must! It is super light weight, comfy, and less than $15. The color I’m wearing isn’t available anymore, but the colors that H&M still has are adorable. The best thing about this dress is that you can style it so many different ways. Tights or no tights, hat or no hat, scarf or no scarf, and you can add a leather jacket for those really chilly nights! The shoes are definitely one of my favorites. I’m currently obsessed with any and everything fringe! They are super comfy and less than $45, so what’s not to love?The necklace is Kendra Scott and it is definitely worth every penny! It literally goes with everything and is the perfect accessory to dress up any outfit.

The other day we went to Owl Creek Pumpkin Patch and it was seriously the cutest! If you live in San Antonio or any surrounding areas, I highly recommend going. Their entry fees are cheap and they have just about everything. The entrance is kind of small with small signs so keep your eyes peeled. We passed it up the first time! They have a fun “potato launch” game when you first walk in, along with a couple other fun little games. There is a petting zoo, pony rides, hay and corn mazes, tractor rides, and, of course, tons of pumpkins. They even have a little tented area to paint the pumpkins. They also have cute set ups made out of hay (pictured above). They allow dogs, however you can’t use the petting zoo or hay rides if you bring them. I wore my FAVORITE jeans from H&M. Ladies, these jeans are not only the most comfy jeans ever, they are only 10 bucks. They literally go with everything. I love them so much, I have 2 pairs! The flannel I just got is from Forever 21 and it is seriously the softest. I can’t wait until it cools down here so I can wear it as a shirt.

Here is a link with the exact address and details for the pumpkin patch.
