Summer is Here! Solstice Sun Puppets

Solistice is almost here... whether you are ready or not, here comes the sun!

Create some sun finger puppets to celebrate?  These were for the last day of third grade...

Check out this darling felt solstice craft idea from Twig and Toadstool

What kid wouldn't have fun with a summer solstice wand via the tutorial at Natural Kids

For the sweeter treat, taste of home has a cute sun cupcake idea...

I would have a harder time passing up Becky Charm's Lemony Lemon Brownies though!

Spooky Halloween Eyeball Flowers

It started with inspiration from pinterest.. Jess posted these last year and they look so interesting! A perfect combination of ease, thrift, and coolness!  

Jess at The Pumpkin Carver cleverly used items she had to create this creepy coolness, and made a great tutorial for it.  However, I neither eyeballs nor old sunflowers in my craft stash.  I looked for eyeballs at a couple of stores and couldn't even find any.  However, I found a pretty good substitute to share with you:

Instead of round eyeballs and hot glue, I used halloween colored google eyes and craft glue.  

I'm thinking this would be a great Halloween party craft for school.  Fall flowers are at bargain prices right now, and googly eyes are cheap. Frugal and easy fun!

Happy Spooky Halloween!
