Tomorrow is Halloween and then all of this will be over, however, I found this wonderful shadow box pumpkin tutorial that I just had to share with you.  If you are quick, you can make one today and sit it on your outside table tomorrow night.

These look easy and quick and I wanted to share them with you.  I wish I had found this blog just a little earlier because my house would be full of these cuties!

Please read her blog and try these out if you can.  Post us some pictures of what yours look like if you make some, won’t you?



Once in a while I create a project that has me giddy with excitement when it’s done. That moment when I have what I *think* is a good idea and then it turns out better than I EVER expected. And this one of those projects. I just absolutely love how it turned out! It’s Shadow Box Pumpkins-a perfect Halloween decoration:

Shadow Box Pumpkins


They are pretty easy to make and so much fun. They look great in the day and then even better at night when you turn on the lights inside them.

Here’s a peek at what they look like in the day:



Then you pop a tea light in the back and turn it on at night and it makes a flickery, spooky, fun display:
