Perfect for your front porch, kitchen table or fall party. Personalizing a pumpkin is the perfect way to add some character to your fall décor. You can buy personalized pumpkins, but who wants to spend that kind of money? Instead, take a look at how we made our own personalized pumpkin, using materials from our local dollar store. It is so easy!Fall Decor ideas, Easy fall Decorations, Personalized Pumpkins, #Fall, #Pumpkins, #Hacks,#Crafts

Here is what you will need:

We found these materials at our local Dollar Tree store. Our Dollar Tree carries a variety of peel and stick letters in various colors and sizes. Buy what appeals to you. You can also find them online.

1. Take a ruler and make small dots to measure out where you want your letters to go. Using the ruler will help you keep the letters straight as well as properly spaced.

2. Apply a thin layer of craft glue to the pumpkin. Make the layer thin so when it dries it can’t be seen.

3. Working quickly, start peeling and sticking the letters. The glue will help them adhere to the pumpkin well.

Once your letters are in place, your easy personalized pumpkin is ready to be displayed. Make one for yourself, or make one as a gift and really get into the Halloween mood for less!

Personalize your school uniforms while still following your dress code rules #DressCode, #Uniforms, #SchoolUniforms, #HacksMy kids wear school uniforms, the dress code says they must wear a solid color polo top, and a solid color bottom.  Pretty basic rules, with lots of color choices.  But my kids still wish they had a little more choice.  So this year we decided to cut the boring buttons off and add new ones that still meet the dress code standards but let my girls add a little fun to their shirts.

You can find buttons at your local craft store of you can buy them online.

Lego Party Decor, Make Your Child’s Age Out Of Legos!

Recently I had a son ask for a Lego Movie party.  We are all about legos in our house!

As much as I love my kids having birthday parties and celebrating their big day with their friends, financially over the top parties are not an option.  I have to get creative and I spend very little on their parties.  For me personally, I would rather use that money on their birthday gifts rather than decorations for a party.  Anywho, I will climb off my soapbox now! ;)

When he said he wanted a Lego Movie party I was relieved!  That is pretty easy to pull off without a lot of extra money being spent.

If you have many legos, this should be simple!

You will need:

A lego baseplate (if you don’t have one already, Amazon has an awesome price here!)

legos

time to put it together

I really can’t say a whole lot about how to assemble this one.  Since my son had just turned 9, I used the legos we had to put a number 9 on our baseplate.  It wasn’t really popping though, so I added the frame around it.  So simple, yet cute and better yet, free!  Who doesn’t love free?!

Lego Door Thrifty Lego Party Decorations

My kids are obsessed with legos.  Really obsessed.  I know I am not the only parent with kids that love legos, because seriously the brand is huge!

So it wasn’t a huge surprise to me when my 9 year old picked Lego Movie for his birthday party theme.   I was kind of excited about it, because there is so many thrifty, fun things you can do to decorate for a lego themed party!

Here is one of the party decoration ideas we came up with.

You will need:

plastic party tablecloth (color of your choice)

small paper plates in the same color as tablecloth

packing tape or something that is strong enough to hold the plates on for the length of your party

Even better, you should be able to get everything at the dollar store, or in the party section of your favorite store for cheap!

Begin by trimming your table cloth down to the size of your door, if it is a door that will be being used.  If you aren’t using the door, it is even easier.  We did our coat closet and so I was able to just tape it onto the inside of the door.  I wasn’t worried about that part being pretty!  However, if you are doing a door that the inside will be seen, be sure to trim it down and tape it along the top, bottom, and sides where the tape will be hidden.  Also poke a hole for the door knob.

Once you are done taping up your tablecloth, put a piece of packing tape on the back of your paper plates so that they will stick to the front of your tablecloth.  For our normal sized door I used 8 plates.

Easy enough, right?  As the boys came in for the party they thought it was awesome that there was a giant lego!  This would also make a great backdrop for a photo booth!  Include some fun props and watch the party guests ham it up for the camera!
