 This site contains affiliate links. Please see below for more information. Make a Pine Cone Wreath for Halloween #TigerStrypesBlog #Halloween #Craft I can’t believe that it’s already October.  Time is flying by, and I haven’t really gotten in the mood to decorate for Fall yet.  Halloween is just a few weeks away, and obviously the local stores didn’t get that memo, since they are already […]

Sewing Craft to Make Candy Corn #TigerStrypesBlog #Sewing #Craft With Fall already here, and the leaves changing color, I figured that it’s almost time for Halloween.  Since my son will be 20 this year, and left the house awhile ago, Halloween isn’t really the same anymore.  No more trick-or-treating, no more going through […]

Make Some Mummy Candleholders #Halloween #TigerStrypesBlog 2

Make Some Mummy Candleholders #TigerStrypesBlog #Halloween I cannot believe that it’s already the end of October.  Where does time go?  With our son almost being 18, the days of trick-or-treating are over.   Well, until we take the Grandkids, but that will be a long, long, …….long time in the future!!  Better be, anyway. 🙂 I wanted to make something easy and fun for decorations this […]


Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkin Craft #TigerStrypesBlog 21

Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkin Craft #Halloween#Craft #TigerStrypesBlog The weather here in the mountains of Arizona is always getting cold in the evening.  Halloween just a few weeks away, if we end up carving a real pumpkin…it will be toast by the time the trick-or-treater crowd gets here.  I figured that I could make some Wicker Plate Tray Halloween Pumpkins, like I saw on Pinterest […]

Thank you Tryazon for partnering with me on this UnREAL blog post! This Candy is UnREAL! #Tryazon #GetUnreal #EverythingIsPossible I found out about a party that Tryazon was doing for the UnREAL company with their candy. Hearing about the company and why they are re-creating the candy market made me really interested in the products. I was able to get a great party kit: …and […]

Create Some Pallet Art for Harvest Season 45

Create Some Pallet Art for Harvest Season I’ve been seeing a lot of these pieces of art using pallets lately, and thought this would be fun to try.  We were driving by a local store, and I saw a pallet leaning on their outside wall.  Headed inside to see if they needed to get rid of it.  They said yes, so I put it in […]


Halloween Costume for Computer Lovers 10

Halloween Costume for Computer Lovers I saw something like this in a catalog for about $20, and figured that I could just make my own.  My son is in love with his computer, and trying to learn more about programming…and of course, Minecraft.  I figured that this would be a perfect costume for him for Halloween. He actually told me for the first time this year, […]

Make Some Halloween Lamps Using Wine Glasses 23

Make Some Halloween Lamps Using Wine Glasses I thought it would be fun to make some Halloween table decor this year.  I wanted something pretty easy, with things that I already had.  I saw some “shades” at the dollar store and figured that it would be easy to make my own.  Then, you can just decorate them however you wish to display around your home. […]


Celebrate Fall With a Plastic Canvas Pumpkin 22

Celebrate Fall With a Plastic Canvas Pumpkin #Halloween #Craft #DIY I saw a kit to make something like this in the Mary Maxim catalog that I received recently.  I figured that I had some extra plastic canvas laying around, and that it would be fun to try and make my own.  It ended up being pretty easy and turned out really cute.  I love that […]

Make Some Fall Candy Dishes With Fall finally here, and the leaves just starting to change here in the White Mountains of Arizona, I always love having my home decorated to match.  I saw something like these on Pinterest and Real House Mom’s blog, and thought that they would be fun to make.

“Halloween Candy Jars” Make Sweet Gifts 26

Make Some “Halloween Candy Jars“ I wanted something a bit different to decorate during the Halloween/Harvest season in our home.  I thought about a great way to use the candy for home decor.  Simple to do and the pieces can be found pretty inexpensive.  The hardest part for me was finding candy that was a single color.  One of the “joys” of living in a small […]

Make Some “Halloween Broom Treat Bags” 22

Make Some Halloween Broom Treat Bags #TBCCrafters I saw these cute things on a kid’s craft page and thought they were adorable.  We live in a very small town and on Halloween, most of the flatlanders have already left, so the population is even smaller.  We only have about 4 to 6 kids who come by our home, so doing something special for them is a fun […]


Create Some “Yarn Pumpkins” #TigerStrypesBlog 6

  Create “Yarn Pumpkins” – #TBCCrafters Hop I saw something kind of like this on Pinterest, however they just wrapped it around their hand and never cut it open, so it looked a bit messy to me.  I recently bought a Clover Pom-Pom Maker and wanted to try it out, so I thought this would be a great way to do it.  Fall is my favorite […]

Make Some “Halloween Candy Treat Bags”  I saw something like this on Etsy and pretty much laughed at the price the person was asking.  All it was, was a pdf file that you would print out yourself and then attach to a baggie and they wanted like $5.00 EACH!!  I got that “I can do that” look on my face and powered up the Silhouette […]


How to Make a “Pumpkin Candy Holder” #TigerStrypesBlog 6

How to Make a “Pumpkin Candy Holder” I saw a little thing that Silhouette Craft Studio was offering and decided to download it, but decided to make it a bit different.  It was first set to be a bat (which I’ll probably use at one time), which explains the extra things in one of the pictures below.  I decided to make it what I wanted and turned […]

How to Make a Metal Orb Pumpkin #TigerStrypesBlog 8

How to Make a Metal Orb Pumpkin I got my newsletter from good old Lowe’s the other day and saw this in there.  Thought it would be a fun one to try.  I sure wish painting and waiting for it to dry went quicker, but other than that, it turned out pretty good, I think.  This is one that I can use every season and […]
