Edible Halloween "S'mores" Craft.... With Peeps

Aren't these super cute?!?
I am so happy my boys love to craft with me.

These are our take on Halloween S'mores.
Made with Halloween candy, Peeps, sprinkles, melted chocolate
and graham crackers.

We used graham crackers as canvases and created spooky
scenes on them.

We spread the crackers with melted chocolate and added sprinkles.

Then created our S'more scenes with Peeps and Halloween candy.

This little edible craft was super fun to do on a chilly afternoon.

My boys really got into it..... having to use every different piece
of candy and every color sprinkles we had.  ;)

I love these. Super fun.

It was hard to stop making these......

Super addictive.......!

Can you tell which ones my littlest made? Isn't it funny how kids
like to stack stuff....?

These were pretty tasty. Though, the taste of the moon shape
was a bit much (for me) with the chocolate.

Super fun edible Halloween kids craft!

Here's hopping your Halloween is filled with spooky treats.

Autumn Wreath and Table Decorations

Welcome Fall and all your rich glorious color.
Welcome all the NEW colors of Divine Twine too.

I an in love with the new solid yellow bakers twine
Whiskergraphics is now offering. It is perfect for Fall crafting.

I'm so happy about the new wreath I made.
I found this old frame in a free pile at a tag sale.
It's chippy and has seen better day. PERFECT...

I stapled chicken wire the the back side of the frame.
Added a cornucopia I found at a thrift store.
(already in the prefect color)
Added a black painted canvas embellished with
vintage buttons and bakers twine. Written with the
word welcome in gold pen.

I am in love with how the horn of plenty
double as a vase for fresh flowers.

I also started on my table decor for Thanksgiving.
I made these votive candle place card holders.

I stumbled upon these bags of fall leaves at the Dollar Store.
(I love using things from the dollar store to craft with)
Using white craft glue I pasted the leaves onto a glass pot.

Once the glue was dry I used solid yellow Divine Twine
to attached some vintage buttons and an admission ticket
for the place card portion of the votive.

Using a glass pot or jar for this project allows
for such a pretty glow.

Supplies for the wreath:
Vintage frame
Chicken wire
Wire cutters
Staple gun and staples
Container for holding flowers
Glue gun and glue sticks
Black paint
Paint brush
Vintage buttons
Gold pen
New solid yellow divine twine

Supplies for the votive place card:
