I am so excited with how these turned out! They are perfect for an adult costume party or a family-friendly soiree. Handmade invitations are always the best (like these awesome luau ones for summer). During the busy Halloween party season handmade invites can be the difference between your guests responding “Yes,” to your party over another. Now that your invites are done it is time to get to work on the party décor with these Easy Painted Pumpkin Coasters. Then come back on Friday to find out how to make a super sweet Halloween pumpkin bunting! **UPDATE** The kiddos came down with something gross and absolutely horrible this week which has resulted in no sleep for this momma due to constantly cleaning up things, that no one should have to clean up, hourly. I promise to get the banner tutorial up a.s.a.p. Mom stuff simply has to come first. Thanks everyone!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
