Halloween Papercrafting Fun and Blog Hop with Cardmaker

I'm so excited to be part of a fun Halloween Blog Hop with CardMakers blog and Glue Dots today! 

With Halloween just around the corner, you can find all kinds of fun cards and papercrafting on this blog hop! AND there's even a giveaway you can enter on GlueDots blog too! 

BUT, before you start checking them all out...I want to share with you the fun I had papercrafting and dressing up this little treat to give away. It was so easy and fun and fast too!

Have you seen the fun ways people dress up cupcakes? That's what got me started on this project, but then I adapted it to work not only with cupcakes, but with cookies, or mini donuts too! So fun and you can change it up!

Here's what you'll need:

No Carve Pumpkin Decorating Ideas; DIY Bubble Gum Machine Pumpkin

 Do your kids have pumpkin decorating contests at their school? Ours do in a few grades. My daughter made a minion a couple years ago. And this year my first grader brought home a pumpkin from her field trip to the pumpkin patch and got to decorate it (without any carving). She had all kinds of ideas and even drew them all out, but this is the one she chose. 

I love that it was easy enough that she could do almost all of it herself!
She was so proud and LOVES it!

Here's how we made it. We actually already had everything we needed at home to make it too! Super simple!
