Aloha- Boo Pumpkin DIY

With Halloween just around the corner, we know whats on your mind. Crisp fall weather, last minute costume ideas (hey, you could always be an SL merbabe, just sayin!), and pumpkin spiced everything. Here in Hawaii, the rain has settled and the sun has been loving us more than ever. We’ve traded in rainy days for warm ones, and while we can’t complain, we still want to keep the fall spirit alive. That’s exactly why we spent Sunday afternoon gathered around the Haleiwa store decorating pumpkins and snacking on candy. Hawaii may trade in crispy multi colored fall leaves for palm trees, but we still know how to celebrate the season. We do some things differently here on the island, so we decided to show you just how we decorate our pumpkins for Halloween, SL style!

What you’ll need:

– A beautiful pumpkin (white or orange). We got ours from the most beautiful pumpkin patch on Oahu, Waimanalo Country Farm

–  White spray paint

– Gypsea Metallic Temporary Tattoos

– Bold & metallic sharpies – a more cost effective & fancy looking alternative instead of using henna ink

– Pencils

– Scissors

First, start out by selecting which Gypsea Tattoos you’d like to use. Use the scissors to cut them out and set them aside.

After 60 seconds, gently peel away the layer and allow the tattoo to dry.

Use the metallic sharpies, paints and tattoos to add more designs. We were inspired to draw Henna style, but it’s all up to you. Let your creative mind run wild.

Wishing you a Happy Halloween from the island of Aloha.

Cute & Quick DIY Table Decor!

We loved this quick and easy DIY Beachy chic table setup by Karine from Be Kind and Smile Often. Its a great way to mermaid-up your Thanksgiving tables!

➵ Putting together a pretty table setting to entertain your family and friends can be very simple and doesn’t have to cost a fortune. I often pull items from my bookshelves or my craft containers and use them for the evening. For this table setting I wanted a beachy, seaside feel. It literally took 5 minutes to put it all together! It’s all about cohesion and layering.

Items Used:

Burlap
Curly Willow
Palm Leaf
Starfish
Coral
Vase
Shells
Twine
Oranges and Basilweddings-by-willy-and-meghan-rustic-beach-thanksgiving-table-1

I cut the burlap table runner into a length that was slightly longer then my table. Don”t worry about cutting it too straight. I then pulled a few strings on each end to give it a little fringe. I then laid the curly willow branches down the middle of the runner. I propped starfish in between the branches and scattered shells along the runner. It’s fun to just play with it a little to get a look that you like. I pulled a small vase off my shelf and cut a palm leaf from a tree in my yard. You could use any greenery that you have around. Then came the place mats, plates and napkins. I simply tied the napkins with twine and placed a sand dollar on top of them. It can be a fun favor for your guests to take home. To fancy up the water I added orange slices and fresh basil. It’s such a refreshing and delicious addition to a plain glass of water.  You could also add some simple tea lights to add a little mood lighting to your table.
