Hurry Up FALL... {Halloween Craft}

I just purchased the Holiday Crafts magazine from Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection, inside was the pattern to make these CUTE little "Meeses" or as they call them "Candy Corn Treats" I am not going to lie and tell you they were easy, they WEREN'T... I even skipped some steps and changed a few things, but in the end they turned out cute, and I am pleased... Now if only FALL would hurry up and come!

Those are adorable!! I have been looking for things like that for my three year old to help me with. Maybe I will be able to find an easier version. They turned out adorable!! :)

How cute! That makes me so ready for a little cool breeze! I think fall crafts might just be my favorite. Do you have any cute ones that would be easy for little children? Thanks for sharing :)

CUTE! I will take your word for it and not try them myself; if they were not easy for you to do, they would be near impossible for me!

I literally chuckled when I read your "Hurry up Fall" header ... In late June when I stopped at Michael's to get the flowers to make a silk coursage, I was shocked to see so much fall stuff already out. That afternoon after I had told a friend about it, she had LOL'd and said, "Cheryl, most people had their fall stuff packed away w-a-y before the first of Feb."
My oldest son got married out of state in mid. Nov. . 2 weeks later was Thanksgiving. 2 weeks later was his cousins wedding. 2 weeks later was Christmas. 1 week later was New Years. 2 weeks later we had a in-state full wedding reception for them - and we stayed with their fall theme - even though here in MI we were in the middle of "SEVERE WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS". So-o many people commented on how they loved walking out of blizzard type conditions into the warmth of a fireplace and warm fall colors every where ;-}. But by the time I got everything cleaned up, sorted through, packed away ....
can't believe fall is almost here already o:-p
And now son #2 is dating a girl, who L-O-V-E-S fall, and had always thought a fall wedding would be beautiful .... {won't be this years fall though}
