It was Thanksgiving here in Canada last week, so I figured I would share with you guys how I stayed festive. The things that makes the holidays is decorating and having the holiday spirit. So I was searching on pinterest and it brought me to HeyKayli's Thanksgiving Treats video and I just had to make them. Its rice krispie squares dyed orange and I used chocolate chips as the stem and icing for the leaves and the pilgrim hats are Reese's peanut butter cups on top of cookies stuck together with orange icing and you just need to create a little buckle. These are just a fun addition to the typical pumpkin pie :)
And it just wouldn't be me if I didn't have festive nails, so through more online searching, I created my own variations, I don't like all candy corn nails and I wanted to incorporate pumpkins, so pumpkin tips is easy and fun. For the pumpkin use your brush to create the edges of the top of a pumpkin then with a thin paint brush or striper, outline the top you just made, then create the rounded lines in the middle, then with a brush or dotting tool create the green stem. And for candy corn nails, paint your nails orange, wait for them to dry, cut a piece of tape to fit the space you want and then place it in the middle of your nail, and on each side of the tape fill in the white and yellow, simple!
Sorry my nails are so grubby but this was as I was heading out the door to leave, as I had three turkey dinners last weekend, and didn't have time to capture my nails well or clean them up.
Anywho, I have edited all the pictures I have taken in the last two months so get ready for an influx of posts because they're pretty much done, I just get lazy and never publish. But I have a week off for Reading Week sonn which will be nice!
