Remember how I told you last week that my husband had issued me a challenge?
Welllll I thought I'd reveal the story behind that...
There's my silly man... he won't take normal pictures with me... ugh.
So we were walking through Lowes the other day... he was picking out a new leaf blower because it DOES look like fall outside even if it doesn't feel like it here...
and I looked over at him and said 'babe...it must really suck to be married to someone that can find something to use in any store we go into...you just can't get away from it"
Then came the big mistake...
"Well you can't find something in ANY store..."
"ummm...what store can I NOT find something in?"
"That shell station across the street"
He totally took me to that Shell station and in his best "project runway" voice told me that I had five minutes inside to use five dollars to find something I could make a project from.
The only rules were:
*it had to be under five dollars
*it couldn't be anything I had made before
*Whatever I bought had to be the main part of the project but I could use other items I had on hand.
Can anyone tell that we have just a goofy relationship? :)
He totally thought he had me.
He still thought he had me even after I picked up these:
White, orange and black acrylic paints
And a blank square canvas I got forever ago from Big Lots for a whole 3$!
I painted it up:
I LOVE how it turned out....
I had this webby stuff I got from the Dollar Tree and I played with it for a while...then I ended up just stretching it across the canvas and securing it to the back with hot glue.
This was the fun part... I dumped the pumpkin seeds and played with them for a while.
I guess this is where your personality can come out :)
After I got my pumpkin shape, I hotglued those suckers down.
My pumpkin-seed pumpkin!
I used some twine and wrapped it around the bottom of the canvas then just stuck a fun fake fall flower on...
I kind of love it.
Hubby was impressed.
And that's what matters, right?
Plus, this took like a third of a bag of seeds... I could make like five more!
Pretty, pretty pumpkin.
So, yes, honey. I CAN find something to craft with anywhere.
Sorry 'bout that.
