Except when it comes to crafts.
I love EVERYTHING about it. And ALL of its colorful clutter.
For every occasion, (Halloween, Christmas, Easter etc…) I binge buy anything holiday related so that my daughter can create anything she desires. My go to places are the Target dollar aisle, the dollar store and Michael’s.
Shiny Beads & String.
Giant Pom Poms. Yarn. Paper. Glitter.
Masks & Fuzzy Stickers…
Let’s just say, this is just some of the stuff.
Usually, to keep all of it somewhat orderly and at bay, I organize everything into bowls and glass jars. I then lay them out on our table for easy access. Subsequently, while trying to find some bowls to hold all of my addictions — I came across this NIFTY little video. (You have to click to watch how cool and easy they make it look.) And decided to try and make similar glitter bowls in Halloween themed colors to hold everything together.
Mix the mod podge and glitter half and half. Paint thick coats, 3-4 layers, letting them dry couple hours in between. My 5 yr. old was totally able to handle this.
Once dried overnight, pop the balloon, trim the edges and TADA!
You can make them big or small depending on how big you make your balloon.
They are obviously not that sturdy, or at least mine weren’t, but will definitely hold steady for the month of October. And my daughter has an entire month of Halloween to get messy and go crazy creating, crafting and letting her imagination take over – Wild.

Happy month of Halloween!
