Short faced dog = Lots of snoring.
You'll start to really hear it around 40 seconds into the video. :-)

Kiddo Craft-o's: Autumn Globe

This picture doesn't do the craft much justice....there's a video below!!
Well, I'm back to a weekly stint of volunteer crafting at our local library, just in time for Halloween!! This week I decided to have us all make Autumn Leaf Globes. 

Here's what you need:
Clean bottle (with cap)
light corn syrup
glitter (red, orange, yellow)
Tin Leaf confetti (found at Rite Aid)

Here's a short video of what it looks like:

Moss Monster Mansion Craft

The Moss Monster!! 
They are the new inhabitants of a spooky Victorian mansion I found at a yard sale this past spring. Here's the mansion:
 Spookiness, eh?? I adore it. I think it's meant for little porcelain trinkets, but I am not a little porcelain trinket kind o' woman. I appreciate things a little more wild. A little more funky. And...a little more....
Moss Monstery!!!!
Wanna make some of these?? They are super doopery easy.
You need:

wooden bead (with single hole through it)
reindeer moss
hot glue
green floral wire
black eyed peas

~Thread two pieces of wire through the wooden bead, one for the top half of the body (the arms) and one for the bottom half (the legs). I looped them through twice to get them to stay for the moment.
~Hot glue the wires into place by squirting some right into both sides of the hole. 
~Hot glue the reindeer moss on.

~Take two black eyed peas for eyes and hot glue them on as well.
 Told ya. Easy.

I joined these linky parties....check them out and be inspired!!
