Rainy Day Creating

We've got rain
lots of it.
Perfect for creating inside!
I shared this rainy day craft last year,
but thought it would be fun to share once again.

What did we do before the Dollar Stores?
On a shopping visit, I found some great little pumpkins
ready to finish with accents and trims.

I had an idea
 to decorate a few to display in my vintage Blue Willow cups under cloches
in a corner hutch.

To begin,
I purchased 3 little light weight pumpkins
topped with a fall flower and a few berries.
Cost 3 dollars.
To these I added glitter on the pumpkins in a dot pattern, added old buttons, vintage  lace, paper roses
and glitter outlining the leaves.

Cost, 0 dollars as these were in my crafting stash.

Next I added a little Halloween tag to each
courtesy of
Cost 0 dollars.

Here they are in the cups, under the cloches,
displayed on the hutch,
Cost 0 dollars.

Love the simple uncluttered look.


And for one last Dollar Store Craft.
I purchased a 10 inch grapevine wreath.
Cost 1 dollar.
A garland vine of leaves.
Cost 1 dollar.

Wrapped the vine around the wreath.

Added a little sign repainted from my stash and a few leaves I had on hand.
Cost 0 dollars.
Total cost 2 dollars to complete.
You could add anything you have on hand if you don't paint.
A graphic glued to a piece of wood,
a bow, or maybe a few pumpkin picks.

Here's where I placed my rainy day craft.

These ideas from items purchased from the Dollar stores
are great craft projects for the kids too.
Fun to do on a rainy afternoon.
Great for us big kids too!!

Have you created any rainy day crafts lately?

Happy Creating!
