Candy Corn, Glitter, Pinterest, and the Crafting Rule of Three

Before I begin, let me make something super clear.

I am not crafty.

At all.

I own a glue gun, but I’m too scared to use it, as I’m certain I’ll end up in the emergency room with third degree burns and four fingers glued together.

When it comes to crafts, I have one rule…there may be no more than three steps from start to finish.

I’ve done a pretty good job of avoiding crafts until Pinterest came along.

This past weekend, Katie and I tackled not one, but two of the projects that I have pinned to my Autumn Pinterest board.

Here’s the first…

candy corn decorations, Halloween crafts, easy craft projects

And here’s how we did it…

1) Find a glass vase

2) Dump in a bag of candy corn

3) Insert a pillar candle

See? Super easy.

And here’s the other project that we tackled…

halloween craft, glitter pumpkins, crafts and pumpkins


halloween crafts, autumn crafts, pumpkin crafts


And here’s how we did it…

1) Brush mini pumpkins with white glue (we used a bag of fake pumpkins and gourds from Michael’s)

2) Sprinkle fine glitter all over pumpkins

3) Allow to dry on a baking rack


See? Three steps each.

Happy daughter, uninjured mother. Win, win!
