When you are a crafty person, people have…expectations. They expect you to be able to whip up a centerpiece out of nothing but pinecones and a glue gun, and if you have kids, they expect you to make them spectacular Halloween costumes.

Be sure to check back next week, when I’ll show you a delicious no-sew costume for a toddler or big kid. Until then, you can take a trip down memory lane and watch the very first Weekday Crafternoon ever, Three Easy Pumpkin Projects.
