Pom Pompom Pumpkins 

I decided to do one more Halloween/Pumpkin craft this week. Pom Pompom Pumpkins. 

This is another very easy, kid friendly craft. All that’s required is some Orange wool, a piece of cardboard, green pipe cleaner and scissors. 

I made a quick pompom maker from the cardboard. 


I wrapped the wool around and around until it looked fat enough. 


I wrapped another piece of wool around the wrapped wool, in the slot in the cardboard, added a piece of pipe cleaner and tied it tight.


Next I removed it from the cardboard and cut through the loops on each side.


I gave it a good shake and started to trim them.


Curled the ends of the pipe cleaner and tied a knot in the long piece of wool for hanging, and that’s it! Pompom Pompom Pumpkins!

Mason Jar – Fairy Light

This is the other project I did today with Mason Jars.  It is a Fairy silhouette light/candle holder.

It turned out okay, I just didn’t have any more artificial flowers to decorate it with.  The ones from the last project, the Centre Piece, were stolen from the one artificial arrangement we own.  And no, I can’ t even kill the fake ones… you do have to dust them though 😦

May the 4th – Episode #2

“Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.”  ,,,,, Yoda, Attack of the Clones

Do you like my “Episode” reference lol?  The space geek in me just can’t help it!  Do you have a favourite Star Wars Episode?

Apparently being such a space geek is hereditary.  Kim (and hubby) are both space and comic book nerds and Dillon is a semi nerd.  In his infinite wisdom one day, he admitted to me that he heard something on the radio one morning, a call in show, asking people to call in with their best Wookie impersonation.  He proceeded to tell me about how he had been practicing lol.  Not to call in, but just to see if he could do it!  I of course spread the story through out the family… again.  He has a habit of telling me embarrassing things he probably shouldn’t considering my sense of humour!!! Poor guy lol!

Ok, back to May the 4th…. today’s Episode will be making Pool Noodle Light Sabers!  Another very easy, kid friendly, Star Wars craft.  I am sure the kids would enjoy “battling” with these in nice weather…and in saying kids, I am not designating an age group!

May the 4th – Episode #1

“Difficult to see.  Always in Motion is the future.”        … Yoda

“MAY THE 4TH” BE WITH YOU….LOL.

I know, it’s pretty cheesy, but there are a lot of us self-proclaimed “Space Geeks” out there, and some of those Geeks will celebrate this occasion, especially this year with it being the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars!

Mason Jar Vase

I have seen a lot of these vases on Pinterest and decided it was time to try my hand at it.

I think they would not only make great Wedding centerpieces but also a great Mother’s Day or Birthday gift for someone special! Or you could just make it for yourself!

I think when this one is done it will end up as “Décor” in the Craft Room!!!
