happy halloweenie!!!

Last week I had 10 and 11 year old girls come to my house and decorate little pumpkins.  We only have 1 hour to do these things.  So how do you clean out a pumpkin and carve it in that space of time?  You can't unless they are a lot older.  Anyway, I just went into my studio and scrounged for materials to decorate.  I have an abundance of sequins and beads left over from the prom dresses that I hand beaded and sequined for Gracie.  So that's what we used.  Oh, there were 2 girls that couldn't come-so I made a few.  It was very very fun and they loved it.  Then the highlight of the whole project was that they had to deliver them to a "lady in need" in our neighborhood to cheer her up.  It's such a good project.

I hope you will all have a fun and safe night! 


  1. What a great project and they learned to give to others! What a great concept! Kids need to learn that every single day! Oh, I'll get off my soap box now! Sorry! Happy Halloween, Julie!

  2. Thanks! You know every time I do something like this with the girls I find myself having as much fun if not more. That's how I started doing mosaics. It was with this group last year.
