Halloween Link Up: Crafts/DIY

Today's host:


My name is Brandi, I am 20 years old. I'm going to school for my dream job (cosmetology). My boyfriend is in the US Navy on the USS Carl Vinson! I started writing my blog so I can share my life with the world and hopefully make a difference! I am a survivor of depression.

How do you celebrate Halloween?
I have all my cousins come over and we all take pictures. While they are out trick-or-treating we get baked goods and we sing happy birthday to my uncle and pop-pop. Halloween is a great time of year for my family to get together and enjoy one another! Even the pets!


Materials
Pumpkin Paint brushes(XS,S,MED,LARGE)
Paint: white, black, purple (or any creepy one you desire)
Red glitter (You can use normal red paint, but I like mine to stand out.)


Step one: Paint the pumpkin all white. (wait for it to dry before moving to step two)
Step two: Paint the stem black.
Step three: Paint the color part of the eye the color of your choice. My choice was purple.
Step four: Paint the creases red


There you have it!

Halloween Link Up: Recipes

Today's host:

Ciao! I'm Joslin of Ech & Will. My husband are currently stationed at Aviano AB in Italy and we love it! I blog about travel, housewifing, and the military lifestyle.

This year we don't have any Halloween plans. Cass will probably be working and I will probably just hang out at the house and hand out candy to the couple of kids that come around. Our landlord's daughter knows to hit us up and she'll bring her friends with her.

apple muffins

Instead of sharing a stereotypical pumpkin recipe, I decided to share a recipe for apple muffins. I make them every fall and they're delicious!

Halloween Link Up: Decor Ideas/Inspiration

Today's host:

Hello everyone! I'm Elizabeth and I blog over at The Blooming Air Force Bride! My blog is a compilation of my life- a FurMom, a few crafts, some DIY, an Air Force Wife, moving to Alaska, and the occasional recipe. Stop by sometime and take a little read!

I was so excited when I saw the Halloween series on Milso Blogger. I've always lived so far out in the country that I never had one of those conventional Halloweens that kids dream of. Hopefully this year that will all change! My husband and I will be arriving at our new Alaskan home mid-October and maybe we'll have a stroke of luck and be in a house for Halloween. Granted, we won't have any belongings, but I'm down for some Halloween decorations and candy! So please excuse me while I pile on a few Halloween decoration Ideas and Inspirations!



With all of these ideas I knew I had to do some kind of craft. But why not a tutorial? For some reason the monogrammed pumpkin just really stuck with me, so I decided I would find my take on it and make a little tutorial for you. After some brainstorming, this is how I did mine!
