What I Did: I saw a picture similar to this pin. I thought, “I can do this! My son will look adorable in a pumpkin!” I carved the pumpkin, lined it with pillows, and plunked my son inside. He was NOT happy. Total Pinterest FAIL.

My Result:

What I Did: Nothing worked! My daughter was getting impatient with the messy, gluey, string-wrapping. I didn’t have anywhere to hang it to dry & figured because it was nice & warm out, that I should hang it outside (also cleaner for the glue drippings). But, it fell apart :(

My Result:

Next Time I Will:† I don’t think I’ll attempt this one again!

What I Did: My housemate and I were in the mood to decorate pumpkins, and these little guys were too small to carve. We wanted to take our decorating skills to the next level by trying the melt crayons technique. The picture made it look so cool…but ours just turned into uncontrollable meltage.

We hot glued crayon bits to the pumpkin and began blow-drying the bits….as soon as the melting began it started splattering, and just became hard to move in the right direction.

The end result was not tooo desirable.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Bigger pumpkins!

What I Did: My son’s room mom chose this and the Cracker Spider to be made for their class Halloween party. Due to miscommunications, we made samples right before the party. Hence the fruit roll-up wrapped phallic turd and the cracker with the black things.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Pick a different project. The spiders are just lame.
