Monday Made It...Halloween Style...

Welcome to Monday Made It...Halloween Style!
I'm linkin' up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It.

I have always loved Halloween and I'm excited to share some craftiness I've made to get in the spirit.

I got this lil' pumpkin at Hobby Lobby for 40% off.

I used glass seed beads, sequins, sequin pins, and glue to decorate.
I have blogged about the whole process, step by step, here for anyone that wants to know everything you need to make these. This worked perfectly for my plan to hang in my pajamas and watch Netflix.

Finished pumpkin

Isn't it sparkly and festive?

Can you guess what this one is goin' to be?
I cut a styrofoam ball in half to get this one started and used the same supplies from here.

Finished spider

Isn't he cute and sparkly too?

I can't decide which one I like better!

I saw this idea on Aylin and Amanda's blog, Learning to the Core, and immediately fell in love. 

I'm goin' to have my 5th graders decorate these to give their Kindergarten friends for readin'.
I do boo-lieve they will really like these.

I also made editable Halloween Labels that are in my TpT store.  Miss Nelson and I made Halloween Question Cards to spark student discussion or prompted writing for our Double Trouble TpT store.
Miss Nelson, myself, and our Double Trouble stores are all 20% off on Monday.

Also, Deb @ Crafting Connections is havin' a 1,000 TpT Follower Giveaway.  Be sure to hop over for your chance to win some amazin' prizes from some pretty awesome bloggers. 
I'm so thankful to be a part of this special occasion for Deb.

Brooke @ Whooo's in Second is also havin' a Giveaway. 
 Be sure to head on over to check out her blog, enter the Rafflecopter giveaway, and show her some love.

Be sure to check out the super duper Monday Made Its on Tara's blog.
Thank you Tara for hostin'!


  1. Love your pumpkin and spider.They remind me of ornaments my Mom and I used to make. I remember them being beautiful but weighing a ton! Now I want to make a spider for my spider unit! Great idea!

    1. It actually calms me. I just sit in front of the TV and then I don't feel bad for not doing anything while I'm watching. :)

    1. Thanks, Bethany! They were fun to make!

  3. Wowie wow wow!! Those are amazing! I'm really quite impressed with your craftiness. I love all the sparkly. It's incredible what we can come up with just so we can stay in our PJs all day. ; )

    Those eyeball sticks are cool. I wonder how many of your fifth graders will decorate their stick to look like Mike Wyzowski (Monsters Inc.)?
    Have a great week! : )

    1. Oh....I didn't think of that. That's a great idea. We shall wait and see. Thank you for your compliment, Ali! I do love some sparkle!

  4. Love your sequined decorations! I inherited a whole set of Christmas tree ornaments from my husband's grandmother that are done with sequins, pins, and beads. I've always thought I should find out how to make them and add to the collection. You have inspired me to do just that!

    Truly, I'm just jealous. I don't think I have good enough eye sight to do that!
