Halloween comes once a year, but I like to go all out for decor and everything pumpkin-related. Why not get products that can serve a purpose the rest of the year? Here are a few items that won’t stop working at the stroke of midnight on October 31st!
If you want a DIY project that is all set up for you, Things in Vinyl has a 4-sided Mini Stacker that includes Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s day for $12 on sale right now! They also have a larger version with 12 different holidaysyou can pick from for $18.
Pumpkin Carving Tool and Scooper
knife is awesome- somehow, Pampered Chef created a “safe” serrated
knife! It has a rounded point and dull serration, so kids can use it to
cut food and craft projects (think modeling clay) by themselves. And
yep, it works for carving pumpkins too. My 3 year old always wants to do
EVERYTHING by himself, include cut his own food.
digging around inside the pumpkin to get every last slippery seed out?
This double-sided “scoop loop” makes it a cinch, and also works on
melons, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, and cucumbers. My mom’s friend
Cyndi is a Pampered Chef rep- easy to order from her! Links above go directly to her site.
If you have real or faux pumpkins lying around, spray them all one color- white, silver or gold. You can add ribbons, feathers, or jewels to make them into the ultimate Thanksgiving centerpiece. I spray painted foam pumpkins an antique gold, then added chevron stripes and polka dots with a silver paint pen.
How do you re-use your decor for different holidays?
