30-Minute Pumpkin Crafts

A couple weeks ago, I reached out to my favorite home bloggers with a challenge: Come up with a unique pumpkin idea, using only items they had around the house, that took under 30 minutes to execute. I sent them my own example—a Carrie made from a tiara, fake blood, and straw that I thought was pretty genius (find it on Instagram @clintonkellyofficial)—to see if they could come up with anything better. Well man, was I blown away! Check out their fabulous creations below and click through to their sites for the full instructions.

30-Minute pumpkin Crafts

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
