Paper Lantern Up Cycle

 I was inspired by this blog: DIY Sculptural Paper Orb Lights

I will update with my step by step instructions soon!


Paint the yellow lantern.

 Allow the paint to dry. 
Place lantern on bowl to start working.

I used these awesome cupcake liners and flipped them inside out so the pretty side was showing.

Starting at the top of the lantern I used my hot glue gun to stick the cupcake liners down. Try to space them out so the tops touch but not so close that they are scrunched together. 

Next take the mini cupcake liners, dab a little hot glue, and stick them in the middle of the bigger cupcake liners.

Finish the whole ball.
I used an IKEA hanging light kit inside. 
Ta Da!

Pumpkin Muffins


So easy!

My sister did this and I copied her, but she copied from my Aunt, who got her idea here: 

All you need:
15 oz can of pumpkin
Moist Supreme box cake mix- either Golden Butter or Spice cake
Muffin pan
Baking cups

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the boxed cake mix and the pumpkin together.

Scoop the mixture into muffin pan/baking cups.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Top with powdered sugar or cream cheese. Enjoy!
