Cheap Outdoor Halloween Fixture

I purchased these plastic pumpkin pails at Target for $1.00 each. I cut a slit into the back of the pumpkin down to the bottom and then made a larger opening. (see picture). You may have to adjust yours differently depending on the fixture. I saw this idea on Pinterest of course.

Dorito popcorn seasoning

My family likes to put seasoning on their popcorn and I found this recipe that is really good. I ordered the cheddar cheese powder from Amazon and I'll link it below. The shaker shown doesn't work that well and I plan on putting the Seasoning in a mason jar and just spooning it out.

Personalized Rocks

I have been really enjoying painting these rocks but having difficulty finding them. Does anyone have   a good place to buy large flat rocks? I don't want to take them from the beach.

My largest painted stone so far.

This stone weighs 1 pound 3 ounces and took me 3 hours to paint.  The stone was found along the shore of southern Lake Michigan.

Mosaic Birdbath

To make these birdbaths, purchase a terra cotta pot and larger terra cotta saucer in your choice of size. I painted the pot and outside of the saucer with acrylic paint and sprayed with a sealer. I designed the middle with glass pieces, grouted and then sealed with a grout sealer. Glue the saucer to the pot with E6000 glue.

State Silouette Sign

I saw this project from a YouTube channel I follow called "Garden Answer." We had some scrap wood around the house so I gave this project a try! I like the way it turned out.

Miniature Gnome Garden

Its a rainy day and I was repotting some plants. I have been wanting to make a fairy garden and accessories were on sale for 70% off today at Joanns. I took the plants I had around the house and put this together. The only difficulty I had was the house sinking. I placed an old plastic butter container underneath to support it. Fun Project! I am hooked on a You Tube channel called Garden Answer, and she gave me the inspiration.
