Our First Craft Night by Taylor

Last night, we held our very first craft night!  My original idea was to create polka dotted pumpkins, an idea that I got from my friend Julie.  Unfortunately, a crazed bride in the area had bought every single large white pumpkin available, so I had to come up with an alternative plan!  I decided to take a spin off of Hilary's decoupaging idea and decoupage our pumpkins.

Adding some mod podge to my "S"
We sipped wine and munched on hors d'oeuvres while coming up with a design.  I decided to do an "S" and an owl, since I am obsessed with both monograms and owls right now.  Stephanie made an owl/penguin haha;) and Laura did some creepy crawling spiders.  The most amazing part of the evening was getting to hang out with some of my very best friends.  Sometimes we all just need to take time out of our busy weeks and unwind- and it doesn't hurt to exercise your creativity while you're at it!
With our finished products!


My pumpkins show my obsession with owls and monograms!


  1. super cute tay! I feel so honored to have gotten a shout out for the polka dot pumpkins - I need to do that again this year - I found some white pumpkins at the farmers market, yay!

  2. Would that be "decoupumpkin?" Or "pumpkinage?"
