DIY Purple Minion Costumes from Despicable Me 2

Over lunch in the cafeteria and chattering on the playground it was decided.  Zoe and her BFF classmate decided that they wanted to be matching evil purple minions for Halloween, you know the crazy ones from Despicable Me 2.  We created their costumes from scratch and couldn’t be more excited about the way they turned out.

Here is how we made the pieces starting with the purple hair.  We cut yarn in bundles 28 inches long then gathered them in the middle (about 1″ thick each).  Then we sewed the bundles down the center of two purple hoodies.

The overalls were easy peasy.  We took some cotton ones that we already had and dyed them black with Tulip Fabric Dye.

The Minion Medalions are my favorite.  We cut black circles 4 inches in diameter out of felt then used GLITTERY 3D paint (Tulip Animal Glitter) to create the emblem.  To adhere it to the overalls when it was COMPLETELY dry (24 hours later), we used Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Adhesive Sheets.

The goggles were so fun to make.  We glued two mason jar lids together then cut cardboard out to make circles a little bigger than the jar lids and glued them to the lids.  We painted them silver then added an elastic band to keep them on.

Ryp tried them on for size and decided they were a-ok.

The final touches are the purple leggings and the purple gloves and of course, the purple serum used to turn good minions evil!

I can’t wait until they get into these duds and celebrate the most precious part of all seasons, FRIENDSHIP.  Being creative makes us happy.

Three Little Witches

I doodle a lot.  I doodle for fun, to relax and to create.  It is more than just a part of my job.  I would go as far as to say it is a part of my lifestyle.  I doodled these three little witches two nights ago with my favorite Sharpie marker and shared them on Instagram.  I decided to share wholeheartedly and offer them as a free download, a challenge of sorts.  Here it is and it is a FREE printable!

I already started.  I cut them apart and colored them to create pieces for one a Halloween popcorn box for the blog hop on Sunday.

I see these witches as me and my friends,  I have the kitty.  You can see the whole setup on Sunday when I post my project but here is a sneak peek!

If you download it and use it to create something, please share it with the hashtag #3littlewitches – I’d love to see what you do.

Cheers to WICKED Doodling,

Halloween Fun With Sculpey Clays of All Kinds – Have a Clay-Date

I had my friend Laura who blogs over at Housewife Hellraiser over for a Clay Date and wowza, she can rock the Sculpey.  Over snacks and laughter, we molded and clayed.  Check out what she made on her blog.

A few weeks ago I shared this over on the blog at Sculpey.  It is no secret that I LOVE playing with and creating with clay.  I made the Tic-Tac-Toe pieces with Pluffy.

If you want the free Tic-Tac-Toe Halloween printable, you can get it here or by clicking on the picture of it.

I decided to make a spider to use for my Halloween Popcorn Box for the Blog Hop Party this weekend!  I got out my design portfolio for inspiration and created a sketch then gathered up my supplies.

Here is a picture tutorial of how I made it.

And here she is, ready to party in the Popcorn Box Blog Hop!

I would like to also share a few little things that my girls created.  This little witch that sits on my desk was made completely by Zoe, age 9, with Bake Shop Clay.  There are so many AWESOME colors in the Bake Shop collection.

And this adorable little pumpkin was designed by Jordan, age 11, to add to the fairy garden.  She used Sculpey III.

No matter which clay you like best, the creative possibilities are endless!  Molding with clay is relaxing, therapeutic, fun and so rewarding.  I hope you are inspired to go get some and get making.

If you want to win a little Sculpey stash to get started, enter here.

Mini Gratitude Journals For Kids

November is such a fun month for creating projects that celebrate gratitude and thankfulness.  With the closing of the harvest season and the sharing of Thanksgiving, here is a great way to get kids in on the action with a mini gratitude journal.

To make these you will need the following materials and supplies:

The first step is to create a thumbprint turkey.  To do this rub the thumb in wet watercolor paint and press onto the paper.  When it is dry, add the legs and feathers with a black Sharpie marker (permanent will keep watercolor painting from smudging your lines) then add color with the paints.   Let it dry.

Next, cut the turkey out and glue it to the top of the composition book.  You can glue paper underneath it first if you want to add that step to cover the book design.  Then glue on your detail pieces for eyes and such or draw them with the Sharpie.


Now the journal is ready to fill with all of the things that make us thankful.   My family comes first to mind.  How about you?

Happy Creating a Place to Share your Heart,
