The other day a friend who has not been to our house before said I am sure your house is so clean and organized. The truth is I love to organize, but I feel like I should have a sign “Pardon the mess we are busy making memories”. My daughter shares my love of crafting. Which makes me so happy. She loves to search Pinterest for projects for us to do together.
Crafting, especially with a 4 year old assistant (who am I kidding, boss) means that messes happen. Big ones. Small ones. And all the sizes in between. But sooner or later, you have to look at that mess and smile. As she is getting older she has become a better a better helper too. We both love pink and green and everything preppy. So for this fall we created DIY Preppy Pumpkins.
- Small Pumpkins – can use real or fake pumpkins, recommend white pumpkins.
- Preppy Paper- This paper is from an old agenda
- Scissors or large hold puncher
- Parchment Paper
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush

Lay down parchment paper over your work space

Once the pumpkins were dry we used this to create a Lilly Pulitzer Bar cart.
