No-Mess Pumpkin Decorating for Halloween

Halloween is fast approaching, which means it’s time to pick up the candy, costumes and of course, the perfect pumpkin for carving. What’s scarier than a spooky Jack-o’-Lantern? The thought of cleaning up the messy kitchen after carving it!
This Halloween, try getting crafty with a new pumpkin decorating tool – Sharpie Extreme permanent markers. Sharpie Extreme delivers bold colors on variety of surfaces, including plastic, glass and wood, so when it comes to decorating pumpkins, there’s no problem and no mess! Even better, Sharpie Extreme resists fading when exposed to extreme outdoor weather conditions like rain, snow and mud, helping your spooktacular designs last all month for the big day.


I have been toying with the idea to draw on pumpkins this Halloween and once I received the Sharpie Extreme markers, I knew I had to!  I swung by the Amish farm and picked up a pumpkins for $0.75 and started creating!    Since the markers are permanent, I can put the pumpkin outside and not worry about the colors coming off!


You can easily draw on the pumpkins in pencil first to get your base shape on it.   I drew just the basic owl on my pumpkin at first and then with the Sharpie in hand added all the unique details and designs to his body.  The same for the Trick or Treat, I drew the words on with a pencil and then slowly filled the area with the marker.  Then I freehand drew a web and added a cute spider at the end.   The possibilities are endless!


I still have one more white pumpkin and toying with the idea to make it more of a  Harvest/Thanksgiving theme.  I think if I keep it inside it should last longer with the constant temperature, rather then the cold to hot to iceberg temps we get here outside!

What you will need:
  • Small pumpkin
  • Spoon

  2. Cut into the top to remove the stem like you would when you carve pumpkins and then completely clean out the pumpkin. 
  3. Then use a marker to draw the eyes and mouth. Make sure the mouth is low and has a wide enough opening to  allow the "vomit" to come out. 
  4. Carve the pumpkin
  5. Place your pumpkin on a large plate or serving platter.  Place the backside of the pumpkin close to the end or edge of the plate.  
  6.  Add a spoonful of guacamole (homemade or store bought) through the top of the pumpkin and put it on the bottom of the pumpkin by his mouth.  
  7. Spread the remainder of the guacamole out from his mouth onto the plate.  Surround the guacamole with corn chips (I like to use the blue ones, makes it look spooky)

This is fun for the kids and super tasty!

2 Hearts Movie only in theaters October 16th #2HeartsTheFilm #2HeartsL3

 
Based on the Inspirational True Story

For two couples the future unfolds in different decades and different places, but a hidden connection will bring them together in a way no one could have predicted. Based on an inspirational true story, 2 Hearts is a romantic journey that celebrates life, love and generosity of spirit, and challenges audiences to believe miracles are possible.

Charismatic young Australian actor Jacob Elordi (“Euphoria,” “The Kissing Booth“) plays Chris, a college freshman whose love for a spirited classmate played by Tiera Skovbye (“Riverdale,” “Once Upon a Time”) helps him find the purpose he has been searching for.

In another place and time, Adan Canto (“Designated Survivor,” “Narcos”) plays Cuban exile Jorge, who falls for well-traveled flight attendant Leslie, played by Radha Mitchell (Man on Fire, The Shack).

Though they were never meant to meet, fate has something entirely unexpected in store for both couples that dramatically changes the course of their lives.

2 Hearts is directed by Lance Hool from a screenplay by Veronica Hool and Robin U. Russin (On Deadly Ground). The film is produced by Conrad Hool (The Air Up There, Flipper) and Lance Hool (Missing in Action, Man on Fire). Director of photography is Vincent De Paula (“ReBoot: The Guardian Code,” Don’t Let Him In). Executive producers are Aaron Au (“Firefly Lane,” Elsewhere), Shawn Williamson (The Company You Keep, “The Good Doctor”) and Veronica Hool.

The film is edited by Craig Herring (Bridesmaids, Groundhog Day). Costume designer is Glenne Campbell (Freddy Got Fingered, “Battlestar Galactica”). Casting is by Carla Hool (“Narcos,” Coco) and Judy Lee (Canadian casting) (Numb, Hector and the Search for Happiness). Original music is by James Jandrisch (Reasonable Doubt, Luck) and Brett Hool.

2 Hearts is a based on a true story that finds a positive outcome from tragedy. It follows two couples in two different timelines, with themes related to illness, death, grief, and hope.  Chris is a 19-year-old,  college student who believes you should live your life in the moment. Jorge is a successful businessman who lives every day to the fullest, knowing that today may be his last.    While these two men do not know each other and don't seem to have anything in common...but as their stories unfold, they become connected in the end.  The movie does a great job of transitioning back and forth between each couple.  It will not only warm your heart, inspire you, but it will also make you cry, so make sure you have some tissues on hand.  

I truly enjoyed my advanced screening of this film, it makes you realize you are not promised tomorrow, so we should make the most of every moment.  With everything gone on in world, it is the perfect movie to watch this weekend.

  2. Place some frosting on the back of the eyes and secure them to the donut.
  3. If you have red frosting, you can also use that for the added blood effect.

DIY Candle Image Transfer! Easy #Halloween Decorations!

 

Last year at this time we watched the film The Dark Tower as one of our "Halloween" movies.   Of course afterwards, I had to get crafty and see if I could do some sort of decoration for the film to add to our Halloween decor!

The movie The Dark Tower is based on the best-selling book series by highly-acclaimed author Stephen King.  The last Gunslinger, Roland (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the epic battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.


Here’s what you will need to make these DIY Image Transfer Candles:
  • white pillar candle
  • white tissue paper
  • printer and printer paper
  • masking tape
  • scissors
  • wax paper
  • blow dryer
Instructions
  1. Find a design you want to use.  I put mine into Word and then adjusted image size.  This was if you are using a five inch tall candle, you can make sure the design is under five inches.
  2. Cut a piece of tissue paper to slightly smaller than the size of your printer paper. Then tape the tissue paper (shiny side down) to the computer paper.  Make sure it is smooth and flush.  I only used tape on the top and bottom.
       
  3. Print your image onto the tissue paper. Then  cut down the tissue paper down giving a small border around image.
     
  4. Lay your tissue paper  image flat over the candle.
  5. Wrap tightly with wax paper.
     
  6. Heat the candle with your blow dryer. You are slightly melting the surface layer of wax  so that the tissue paper adheres to the candle. You will see the tissue paper edges disappearing and the image until will brighten, this means the image is fused to the candle.
     
  7. Slowly remove the wax paper and admire your work!
For the candle base, I took a terra cot pot base and sprayed it black.
 I then took glow in the dark rubber mice (Halloween section at Target) and sprayed them black as well. Glue the mice to the pot base. Add some decorative rocks and instant creepy design!

Candy Free Alternatives for Halloween

 

Whether you are planning a Halloween or Fall party or just looking for cool items for passing out this Halloween that are the  non-candy route, why not get some fun glow products! You can pick up so many fun options online and in-store like  flashlights, glow sticks, glow in the dark vampire teeth, glow in the dark shades and so much more!
 

These are also perfect for making sure your own kids are seen as they are out trick or treating. Hang a glow stick around your child's neck and their candy bag to make sure you can see them in the dark.

Not only do glow items work in goodie bags, but they are perfect for night parties and games. Do you know Ghosts in the Graveyard? Flashlights are a must for this game and I was able to score some cute ones at Oriental Trading at reasonable prices ! Here are some quick and easy instructions!
  • Designate one house's yard for the playing field. You will need a home base on which everyone can stand or all touch at the same time such as a large tree, front stoop, or back patio.
  • Choose one person to be the "ghost". Give the ghost a flashlight.
  • Have everyone but the ghost stand at the base while the ghost runs off to hide somewhere in the playing field.
  • Sing slowly as a group, "One o'clock... two o'clock... three o'clock..." and so on, up to twelve o'clock. Then shout, "Midnight! I hope I don't see the ghost tonight!"
  • The ghost hunters leave the base and search for the ghost in the yard. The ghost's job is to jump out, surprise, and tag a player with the flashlight. When anyone encounters the ghost they should yell, "Ghost in the graveyard!" and try to run away. When the ghost catches someone, the new person becomes the only ghost.
