Halloween Party Fun!

Posted on October 10, 2015 by Michelle Rynn

Are you looking for some fun things to do for your Halloween party this year or for the Halloween season.  Try this Creepy Checkers craft that is a great decoration and can be a fun addition for your home and a party.

You can buy Artisan's Effect Chalk Markers direct from our store by clicking this link.

This craft was fun to do and surprisingly easy.

I purchased a half pumpkin at my local craft store.

Next, I drew lines with a pencil horizontally around the circumference of the pumpkin.

 

Using the pencil lines and grooves of the pumpkin, I painted squares on the pumpkin using chalkboard paint.

 

 

 

 

Now for the fun touches.  I drew spooky checkers using Artisan's Effect markers.  I used the white markers to make the circle checkers and then used the black markers to put Halloween themed figures on them.

 

Then I wrote my game's name and scoring tally on a non-porous chalkboard.  I attached the half pumpkin to the board.

Because this chalkboard is non-porous, I can easily wipe off the writing from the Artisan's Effect markers.

I used a piece of craft twine to attach a white Artisan's Effect marker to be used to tally the score.

 

Now I have a cute Halloween decoration throughout the month and a great party game.

Pumpkin Decorating Fun

Posted on October 04, 2015 by Michelle Rynn

We love to decorate pumpkins for Halloween, but carving them can be very difficult and messy.  This year, we used Artisan's Effect markers so our children could decorate them too.  No mess and no accidental cuts.

Everyone chose their own designs to put on their special pumpkins that we got at the local pumpkin patch.

 

With all the different colors, we had lots of choices for our designs. The colors are so bright.

 

The kids are so proud of their artwork.

It's Time For Personalized Fall Crafts

Posted on September 27, 2015 by Michelle Rynn

Personalized decor is very popular, and what can be better than when you can make it at home.  Fall is a time to bring those beautiful touches to your home that also can reflect the special things about you and your family.

This project was so fun to make.

First, I purchased a wood pumpkin cutout from my local craft store.

And next, I painted it with chalkboard paint.

What makes this project more special is that I was able to make this more personalized than the generic decor that can be purchased in stores.  I asked my daughters what their favorite things are for Fall, and then I wrote the list on the pumpkin with Artisan's Effect chalk markers.

Now this wood cutout came with a cord so it can be hung up, but I decided to re-use the wreath I had on my front door last year.  Instead of a hanging wreath, it is now a beautiful frame/holder for my decorative piece.

Now I have a new Fall decoration that is also a special reminder for my children of the wonderful new things coming this season.
