October Newsletter!

I’m kind of obsessed with pumpkins. It’s pretty bad, I may or may not have had a nickname in college related to pumpkins because of it. So I’m very excited that October is here! Pumpkin Spice lattes are my favorite and I just read about a recipe where you mix pumpkin pie, vanilla ice cream, and milk in a blender for a pumpkin pie milkshake. Pretty excited to try that one. Hope you enjoyed the paper pumpkin DIY from last month and we’ve got another pumpkin themed one for you this month. We also have lots of great news to share with you!

This Halloween DIY comes from the “Dear Lizzy” blog. Basically, it’s jars painted to look like pumpkins and other Halloween themes. But they look darling lit up with candles in them! It could be a fun kid’s project where you tape off the face and let them go wild with the paint, or an easy one for you if you turn them over and spray paint them. Get creative by adding bat, star, and letter stickers that you paint over and then peel off when it’s dry. Be careful not to get any paint inside the jar. I used acrylic paint which will eventually scratch off, so if you want a more permanent decoration you might want to spray a sealer over it to keep it from scratching off so easily.

Hope you have a wonderful October filled with pumpkins and fun!
