Scouting Sunday #4: Halloween Edition Week 2

No comments:
Welcome back to Scouting Sunday!  This month, I'll be scouting blogs for Halloween craft ideas!  I'm going to try to make scouting Sunday a regular feature here at This Crafting Life, so please help me out!  If you're scouted, snag a button and feature it on your post proudly!





I love dramatic props, and this DIY Spell Book is no exception!  Check out Through My Looking Glass for their tutorial on how to make your own!













My kids love magnets, and also bugs.  What a perfect combination! I think I'm going to have to make these to go all over my house!  Head over to delia creates to see her tutorial!

 Snowy Bliss is my first featured Halloween Food Post, with her adorable polka dot spider cake tutorial!  Yum and so cute too!





Well, now this sounds like a great way to use all those broken crayon pieces I've been saving!  Find out how to create this great drip pumpkin on The Swell  Life.

I know that I featured DIY jars last week, but these are filled with such creative items that I had to share them too!  Head over to A Fanciful Twist for their tutorial today!



Number 6 this week is from Vixen Made for her felt pumpkin activity tutorial.  What a great idea for little hands, and there's hours of endless play and no mess!  Great idea!

This one is really simple, so simple in fact that you could probably figure it out from the picture, but I highly urge you to check out the entire post! This blogger has such a cute foyer design that I might have to steal half of it! :)  Check out Thrifty Decor Chick!
This Monster Wreath Tutorial from babyrabies.com is just too cute!  I think if I made the wreath that my kiddo would love making the finishing touches!  Can't wait to try this!




There's my top 8 handpicked craft tutorials from blogs!   If you were mentioned, grab a button and put it on your blog or post!

New Stuff on the Horizon!

1 comment:
I know it's been a while since I've been able to focus on blogging.  The summer is always a busy time for me, and being outside more, I write less.  As we head into the holidays, a lot of the crafts that I'm working on are kept top secret until after the holidays are over.  Thus, I'm trying to work on a few new features to my blog to fill in some of the time in which I'm crafting and can't share!

1- You'll see more Scouting Sunday Features leading into the holidays.  I love featuring fellow bloggers and seeing and trying new crafts!

2- A new feature, called "My Pattern Experience,"  which will feature projects written by other designers and my experience with the pattern.  Be prepared to see success and even failure, in massive degrees.

3- I have a ton of new patterns that will be made available, some I have to keep to myself yet, but I'll make sure that you get something new to do!

Oh!  I'm also thinking about doing a Mystery CAL with one of my patterns, would anyone be interested?  Feel free to leave me a comment below! :)

First up on my Halloween Craft Edition of Scouting Sunday is Glue Line Pumpkins.  I found this great tutorial over at a faithful attempt, and can't wait to try it with my kiddos!









This next craft is a floating ghost and comes from Every Day is a Crafting Day and I think it's so cute!  I want to make a ton of these and have them popping up all over my house!



I love the idea of giving something for halloween that isn't candy, especially in a classroom situation, and it's for that reason that I chose this cute little favor to feature in this list!  From
Love Stitched, I bring you "fang"tastic favors!



I've recently become fascinated with wreaths.  I want to start making one for every season and every holiday, and of course I have to make them myself.  I found this one from Craftaholics Anonymous, and can't wait to get the materials to make it! 

For decorating, I love things that can be repurposed- for these little jars, I'm seeing jelly jars, empty creamer containers and any other funky glass I can get my hands on.  See The 36th Avenue post for the tutorial!
