I'm seeing so many awesome projects on blogs lately. One really caught my eye last week...
And then my sewing machine broke. But I still really wanted to do something similar to Confessions of a Plate Addict's Jack o Lantern Pillow. Seriously, check it out! It's awesome.
So, no sewing machine to make a pillow. And I didn't want to pay much of anything for a project I know my girls will lose the pieces to in about 2.5 seconds.
That means I was going to have to "craft lift" this project and put my own spin on it...
scraps of wood
3/4 yd burlap
hot glue gun
ice (for the awful hot glue gun burns on my finger tips...yeeoch!)
I'm sure you all can figure out how to glue a piece of burlap on to a board.
Next, cut out pumpkin features in the black felt. I did two complete sets of each face because the girls will fight. I put the face pieces in a baggie. Nothing special.
And that's it.
Super Easy. Well...aside from the hot glue gun burns.
I had quite a bit of burlap left over and my fingertips had completely lost feeling, so I figured...why not another burlap and scrap wood craft?
I did use a fabric marker instead of cutting out felt for the eyes. I knew it was going to end badly for my fingers gluing something that small on.
Again, instructions really not necessary because it's pretty obvious what I did. I'm like the worst crafty blogger EVER.
