Well, just for me anyways.

With October starting, I knew I’d be busting out some of my crafting skills for costumes. So far, I haven’t done much costuming, but have been doing many more crafts than usual.

It started with a flashback to making silly putty in elementary school. Of course, I had to make some. These days, the kids call it slime, but it’s still the same stuff. Borax, glue, water and some coloring. So, we made slime/putty and it was super fun. What made this project even more fun than it was when I was a kid is that I sat down with the little one and came up with names for our Magic Slime. We came up with Magic Snot, Melted Unicorn Horns and Magic Brains. We bottled the slime up and I created adorable little labels for each one.

Next, I got a hair up my ass to finally re-cover the chairs in the dining room. I had some nice typewriter button burlap left over from the wedding last year, so I used that to re-cover the seats. A huge improvement over the dingy floral that was on there previously. I was worried that fabric would go to waste and was thrilled to finally have a use for it.

Then, my cousin sends me this link to some super cute Day of the Dead tea light magnets. I HAD to make them! Of course, I had a hard time finding ping pong balls, so I found hard plastic eyes and melted holes in them. Also, I found paint pens to take too long to dry, so I opted for colored Sharpies. Instead of making them just for Day of the Dead, we made some Halloween inspired ones as well.
