Good Monday afternoon! Did everyone have a wonderful weekend? It was a perfectly, cool autumn weekend for us and I loved it!
Last weekend our monthly craft group met at my house for a Fall wreath and pumpkin decorating day. What fun we had! There were 12 of us there, and I can't believe I didn't get a photo of all of us together! We were having so much fun and there was so much going on I just plumb forgot! A couple were new ladies just coming to see if they would like to join. I think they are coming back!
Anyway, of course we always get started with snacks! I say we are a eating group that just happens to make crafts!
Deviled Eggs! LOL!
Delicious Fall cupcakes and nachos with spinach dip
Candy corn fudge, jello jigglers, pumpkin dip with ginger snaps
Is this not the cutest Owl meat and cheese plate!
"pumpkin" cheeseball and some mummy dogs!
We eat like champs!
The wreaths most of us made were the burlap/mesh type. Most of us had never made one but JW had an she instructed us. Take a look at her witch wreath! Amazing!
DF decided not to do mesh but set about making an adorable Halloween wreath by covering a grapevine wreath she already had. It turned out so cute!
This is my sis, her Halloween wreath is very spooky!
Yours truly went with just an Autumn themed wreath with sunflowers and fall stems
CG made her wreath in the color of Virginia Tech, where two of her boys have gone.
This is Brandi the youngest member of our group with her stunning peacock blue and black with silver snowflakes wreath!
LH made a wreath for her mom that turned out so pretty with it's fall flowers
SM couldn't stay long enough to make a wreath or pumpkin but she did make a cute little ghost spoolie!
After the wreaths we headed outside to decorate pumpkins. Honestly we were so worn out from the wreaths, we didn't get them completely done.
These 3 are mine. The first in chalkboard paint with our name on it, the second painted black with a stencil for the pumpkin faces, then dotted orange with glow in the dark paint. The third is actually painted periwinkle and then highlighted with silver. I love that one!
We had initial pumpkins
My sisters "picaso" moment where she painted this owl on hers after first painted the pumpkin white.
This one was made for one of our members who was absent who is fighting leukemia and winning!
JW was just happy to get hers painted black! She finished them at home by painting them with dots. It looks like her shadow is reaching into my shadows pocket. There's nothing in there JW!
CG brought a white pumpkin and painted it with orange dots.
All in all we had a wonderful day with tons of laughing, eating and creating!
I love this group of ladies!
