Tuesday Display Chain...See it..Do it.



 It's Tuesday and time once again for the Display chain hosted by the talented Misi of 1890 Gable House. This weeks theme is See it..Do it..  

I have been pinning like crazy on Pinterest and have quite a few projects I would love to try. Here are just a few...I will share the links with you all, so you can check them out if you would like. I like how some of the projects turned out...others~not so much. So here goes....





 Project number one...treat bags made from newspaper. The link is here.


 My version...I actually like how these turned out. My pictures don't do this justice. It is a very easy & inexpensive project to do. The only thing I would do different is make my bags a little shorter & wider.


 Project number 2.... A light up pumpkin. Inspiration was found here.


 Hollow out your pumpkin, drill holes any way you want, and add lights. I used an old set of Christmas lights. Love the idea of this, but I wasn't thrilled with the results. I think next time I will use a stencil. 


 Project #3 is a paper project. You can find the link here.
 

 Love this one. I did not make this one. A friend from work loves paper crafts & made this for me. 


 And for the kiddos or kiddos at heart, project 4 can be found here.  This is a simple project made from toilet paper tubes. Cut some eyes, add a glow stick, and stick in the bushes. Spooky eyeballs. Perfect for Halloween.

Here is my version. Easy...yep!!
 

This is what it looks like in the bushes.
 

 Thank you to Misi for hosting the chain again this week. I missed the second week of the chain & really missed it. I'm glad I was able to join in this week.

Make sure to head over to Misi's blog to check out the other offerings in this week's chain. That's where I'm headed.

Have a wonderful evening~Becky
