Hi I'm Amy. I'm a creative free spirit so to speak. I like fashion, interior design, drawing, painting, singing, making people laugh. I'm a social butterfly and long for connection. I'm an enneagram 7, a Leo, and a real person living with anxiety.
I am a chronic procrastinator. There that's out of the way.
Today I was in the checkout line of my favorite store, you may have heard of it...Target?
As I awaited my turn I spotted, conveniently placed right in front of my face, these cheap yet classic plastic pumpkin buckets for sale for one whole dollar. As the moments passed by and the person in front of me continued with their checkout I brainstormed what I could do with it.
Here's what I came up with...
You've all seen this guy. He's cute. He could be cuter.
Strips of fabric...I used leftovers and ripped them into strips
Foam tip brush
Hot glue gun
Using the Mod Podge wipe on a first coat directly onto the pumpkin, lay the strip down and coat the top of the fabric with an additional layer of the Mod Podge.
Don't be stingy with the Mod Podge...get messy with it!
I added an additional rolled up strip of fabric using hot glue around the brim to finish the look. I also snipped my finger when I cut the leftovers off...classic Amy move. I cut myself at least once a week on something!
To make the flowers I cut small circles out of felt, tied a knot in the end of a strip of fabric and glued down the knot.
Then I just twisted the fabric around the knot gluing it down as I went. Then I attached them to the bucket with hot glue. Add an additional piece of felt to the bottom of the bucket gluing it down with hot glue and that's all she wrote...not literally ;)
Ok so I'm officially on a skirt kick as this is my third one in 2 weeks. With spring in the air I just can't help but want to live in spring things!
This diy skirt is similar to the other one I did but this one has a sash and is fuller...which I think is way fun! To purchase this exact fabric go to my etsy shop! If you're not up for making it you're in luck! I now sell it on my etsy shop too!
You should also check it out on my friend over at Stylish Petite!
With Valentine's day lurking around the corner it's only natural for a blogger like myself to begin thinking of cute ways to incorporate the holiday. When I came across this strawberry fabric I fell in love with it's sweetness and decided that I would make my daughter a Valentine's day inspired dress. You may remember my Valentine's day inspired onesie from last year...Now if only my daughter would get up and walk in it instead of scoot around on her booty getting the beautiful fabric all dirty! Sigh...someday!
This might possibly be the easiest skirt you'll ever make! And it comes fully equipped with pockets!
One minute you have a few yards of fabric and the next (well maybe a few hours later) you have an adorable skirt! I think I'll be make lots more of these guys :)
