DIY on the FLY Halloween Pumpkin Crafts

sock_pumpkin_halloween_craft_DIY_on_the_fly_julee_ireland_9

I love to search for items at the dollar store or dollar bins to use for crafting. Believe it or not there is a lot that you can do with a pair of socks including making these darling sock pumpkins! This is a great craft project to make with your kids, family or friends to create fun Halloween decor for your home. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money either! I always find seasonal socks at stores in the dollar bins and you can too!

sock_pumpkin_halloween_craft_DIY_on_the_fly_julee_ireland_2Supplies: Mini pumpkin, pipe cleaners, one pair of adult seasonal socks, scissors, felt square in desired color.

 

 

 

 

 

sock_pumpkin_halloween_craft_DIY_on_the_fly_julee_irelandStep One: Cut the top of your sock off by cutting straight to the center of the heel and follow the heel line.

sock_pumpkin_halloween_craft_DIY_on_the_fly_julee_ireland_5Step Two: Turn your sock inside out and use a pipe cleaner to wrap tightly around the toe part of the sock. When it is secure cut off the excess.

Step Three: Turn right side out and place your pumpkin inside. Pull the sock up tightly around the stem and use a few pipe cleaners to tightly secure your sock. I usually build the stem with pipe cleaners and add some curves for whimsy. Use your felt square to cut out a simple leaf and use a small piece of pipe cleaner to attach it to your pumpkin stem. That’s it! Enjoy this fun and simple sock pumpkin decor.

 

 

 

 

 

halloween_pumpkin_craft_spider_julee_ireland_diy_on_the_fly_4Halloween is all about ambience. Candles are an important design element used with Halloween decor to help set the spooky tone for a spooktacular night. I love to scatter candles throughout my home and in my garden to achieve the perfect mood lighting. Here’s a fun project to create your own spooky spider candle holders. They will look great sprinkled throughout your home, as a display on your front porch or to use as individual table place setting candles for an event or for a Halloween meal. They are super simple and cost less than three dollars to make!

 halloween_pumpkin_craft_spider_julee_ireland_diy_on_the_fly_suppliesSupplies: Mini pumpkin, black pipe cleaners, hot glue gun, small candle. (Optional: spray paint or acrylic craft paint in black or purple)

 

 

 

 

 

halloween_pumpkin_craft_spider_julee_ireland_diy_on_the_flyStep One: Cut an opening in the top of your pumpkin a little larger in circumference than your candle and carve out the insides of your pumpkin. (Optional: you can paint your pumpkin black or purple if you like and let it dry before going to step two.)

Step Two: Take your pipe cleaners and bend eight of them to look like spider legs. Make sure they are all the same size in length.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

halloween_pumpkin_craft_spider_julee_ireland_diy_on_the_fly_3Step Three: Stick four legs on each side directly into the pumpkin.  To secure it further you can use your hot glue gun. When your spider legs are in place insert your candle in the center and you are ready to enjoy this spookdorable candle holder! It’s that simple! These darling pumpkin spiders also make a great place setting card holder.

Decorating pumpkins each year is something the whole family looks forward to, but let’s face it, Mom or Dad does most of the work because sharp objects, such as a carving knife, are not exactly made for kids. That’s why you will fall in love with the Spritz Pumpkin Craft Kits! Now you can put the craft paint and supplies out on the table and your kids can decorate their very own pumpkin with ease! This is also a great craft activity idea for a school or birthday party to keep the kids busy. Each kit comes complete with all of the self-adhesive supplies that you need to decorate your pumpkin. The best part is the price-$3.00 for the simple kits such as a bat, witch, fox, owl or cat and $5.00 for a few of the more elaborate decorative design kits which are perfect for adults. Now, head to the pumpkin patch in search of the perfect pumpkin to use with your Spritz Pumpkin Craft Kit!

All the supplies used in these projects were purchased from Michaels Craft Stores and Target.

Halloween Makeup Tips from the “Lash Queen” Tracy Murphy

unnamed-1
Halloween is Tracy’s absolute favorite holiday – it’s time to dress up and as she puts it, ‘let that inner freak flag fly’. The easiest and cheapest way to make the most impact is by playing with makeup to embellish your costume. Whether you are going as a Zombie or sexy Superhero, makeup is the key to any Halloween look—the finishing touches or even the main event.
Please see below for a few quick and easy tips from Tracy on how to get in the ghoulish spirit at the last minute!

“This is the time to get creative and experiment with those colors that you have that maybe aren’t that ‘wearable’. Bring on the green eyeshadow! It’s important to re-imagine your makeup bag as a painting kit. Thinking of being a wicked witch? This is the perfect time to try that little-used green eyeshadow as a dusting all over the face to get that desired witchy pallor. Vampire? Use red lipstick to drag in bloody streaks from the sides of your mouth.”

“A simple black eyeliner is fast and easy way to draw in shadows and sketch in dark shapes all over the face. Use a sponge or fingertips to blend out – think lines on the face for a skeleton, hollowing out the cheekbones, darkening in the under eyes… quick and easy and you’re in the spirit.”

“If you are aiming for more glamour than ghoul, this is the perfect time for lashes! Wearing a false strip of lashes is an incredibly quick and easy way to add instant drama to your look. Also, glitter is a game changer—press glitter on eyelids and/or after lipstick application leaves a gorgeous effect.”

After nearly two decades of perfecting her signature method and cultivating a cult following amongst industry insiders, Tracy officially founded Lash Star Beauty. Lash Star Beauty is a revolutionary new makeup line; the first and only color cosmetics brand rooted in professional makeup artistry to manufacture and distribute a complete line of products devoted to all things eyelashes. Lash Star Beauty will debut in early 2016.

Relax while your skin breathes easier with Oxygenetix

 

Unknown-1

Do you ever look in the mirror and say “I just don’t like how my skin looks and feels”? Maybe you recently had a skin procedure or have extreme irritation on your skin (face) and are afraid to use make-up. If you answered yes to either, then may I suggest some Oxygenetix. Let me just say, Oxygenetix Foundation is fabulous. With 14 blendable corrective shades to choose from,  Oxygenetix Foundation will allow your skin to breath while providing your skin with full coverage. The foundation provides a protective layer over you skin.  In doing this, your skin’s irritations and scars are still allowed to heal naturally while building collagen layers and speeding up connective tissue reconstruction.  This the perfect foundation if you have had a surgical procedure where scarring has occurred.

As stated by Oxygenetix, “the foundation contains Ceravitae Complex, a patent-pending formula proven to increase oxygen uptake, stimulate skin cell production and help promote the healing process following most procedures.” 

Oxygenetix Foundation is perfect even for the most sensitive skin types. I love this foundation because it is one of a very few foundations that I use that lasts an entire day. Oxygenetix Foundation is Water Resistant up to 90 minutes, offers SPF 25, is hypo allergenic and non-irritating for those who suffer from acne, rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema. Oxygenetix is cruelty-free and vegan which is a big PLUS!

Unknown

Oxygenetic Face Moisturizer is a perfect complement to the foundation, and it also allows your skin to breath while healing. Oxygenetix Face Moisturizer contains the same breathable “second skin” formula as the Oxygenetix Foundation. I use the moisturizer both day and night, and I can feel my skin completely soft and hydrated immediately. Whatever your skin issues might be, you can count on Oxygenetix Face Moisturizer to treat your skin in the best way possible. Oxygenetic Face Moisturizer is formulated with  Hyaluronan and PCA, allowing your skin to receive maximum hydration and protection.
