Halloween Crafty Time

No pigs aren't flying and last I heard hell is still hot...we got crafty. I'm not a huge craft person. When I first left work to stay home with Colton we would have a theme and a craft every week...for about 3 weeks. Meh. Its not my thing. He usually gets his collage on at preschool or with my MIL who is an artist. And yet...inspiration struck and we went with it. So here's what we did.

We took some old baby food jars and wine bottles:

And we painted them super creative I know...

Colton painted the baby food jars orange (and yes he is wearing a trash bag smock)
I painted the wine bottles white but didn't like them so I had to start over...

Then we put jack-o-lantern faces on the orange jars & I painted pumpkins on my wine bottles

I put tea lights in the pumpkins and they look pretty cool in our bathroom.

Coltons favorite part was mixing red and yellow paint to make orange. Nolan is more of an art appreciator than artist, but he seemed to enjoy the finished product.



  1. Too cute!! These made me smile :)

  2. When I first saw the picture- I immediately saw the trash bag and was like: That is so smart! haha
    We are on the same crafty level :)

    1. Is it a trash bag? A biohazard suit? A fashionable smock? Perhaps a poncho??? Lol

  3. Love the baby food jars and the smock!


tell me i'm not the only one!
