I’m so excited to share with you this awesome Halloween pumpkin design that I created! It’s so easy. I’m not great with pumpkin carving patterns, but this one is easy peasy, child friendly, and super cute to boot! It took minimal products, but the main product— it’s so crazy! I used a popcorn box for the body! For real! A popcorn box! I was so flattered to be sent an invite to participate in the annual Popcorn Box Challenge sponsored by Laura Kelly Designs. This is my second year participating and it’s one I look forward to! You can see last year’s box here. At the end of my post you’ll be able to click on all the projects and see how creative everyone got with their boxes! There is also a giveaway you don’t want to miss!

I’ve had so many of you ask me about the topiary in my Fall Home Decor Tour, that I thought I would show you how easy and inexpensive it is to make. So many times we purchase pumpkins, and then are unsure on what to do with them. How many of you are stumped when it comes to pumpkin ideas for decorating? Today I’m giving away all my hints and tips to make this fantastic and eye-catching display. I am going to show you how to make an easy pumpkin design that is a show stopper. You only need a few items, most that can be found inexpensively. I utilized older fake pumpkins, dollar tree pumpkins, and even a real one! By combining these, you can make a display that can be used year after year, with minimal storage requirements. These are perfect for indoors or out! I’d love to see a pair of these pumpkin topiaries used in front porch or entryway decorating. How delightful would it be to see a pair flanking your front walkway? Let’s hop to it, shall we!

I don’t know about you, but with fall sports going full steam, other school activities, and just the whirl wind life of being a mom— somedays I would give my left arm for a quick weeknight meal. A meal that takes less than 30 minutes, has easy to find ingredients and one that’s budget friendly. This recipe was actually the result of one of those days. I absolutely did not want to go to the grocery store. The only source of protein in my house was a can of chicken. I made these in that one simple act of desperation, and they are now a family favorite. I think the key is the bacon. Or the Fiesta Lime for the zing. Or the Frank’s red hot sauce for the spice. Or maybe that ohhey gooey cheese. Who knows? All I know, is that it is perfect for a last minute rushed dinner. I hope it might bail you out of a stressful day sometime!
