Polymer Clay Springoween Pins

Who’s feeling crafty this spring?! I like to beat those I-wish-it-were-Halloween-blues by doing some spooky crafts! I myself have been getting into making pins and earrings out of polymer clay. I’ve always wanted to give it try and found it to be a fairly inexpensive and fun way to create all sorts of charms and accessories. I’m still very much in the early stages of perfecting the art of working with polymer clay – but I learn something new and inspiring each time I sit down to mold with it. I want to share how I made this bright and colorful jack-o-lantern pins for spring if you too want to start sculpting with clay – they’re super simple and minimal tools are required!

DIY Vintage Halloween Cat Pail

If you get tired of too many orange plastic pumpkin pails in your house or attic – don’t throw them out! Instead, breathe new life into them and make them into a creepy cat (one that is vintage inspired at that!). This idea didn’t just come to me – I actually stumbled on the idea years ago on Pinterest and have been meaning to give it a try myself.  I had to buy a pumpkin pail (believe it or not, I did not have an extra one laying around!) to create my cat pail. I snagged one for $1 (which is typically what they cost at the store) at the flea market weeks ago.  At one point, I did have lots of pumpkin head pails because I always pot mums in them and set them around the front porch this time of year, however I am a lazy gardener and housekeeper and they got busted and faded by the elements just chilling out in my backyard. I’ve learned my lesson from that – respect your pumpkin pails, and in return they’ll respect you and your creativity.
