Pumpkins and Potters Wheel -- Crafty Weekends Crafts & Link Party

This has been a bit of a crazy week and weekend. Last weekend we met my sister at Old Sturbridge Village and discovered our admission fee got us a second trip within ten days, so we went back today. Hazel was very excited when we discovered that one of the hands-on crafts that you could pay to do was making a bowl on a potters wheel. She always wanted to use a potters wheel, so we splurged and let her make a bowl today. I had wanted to have her use a potters wheel back when we looked at Juan Quezada, but didn't find a good option. You can see some of the photos above of her dish and her making it.

On Saturday we picked up a couple of sugar pumpkins and headed over to Paper Source for their free pumpkin decorating event. They had three stations: paint, glitter and washi tape. I started with the glitter and Hazel started with the paint.

I did a spiral with the glitter and then added some paint. (I had done stripes with paint and then added glitter glue dots for one of the samples at the store.)
Hazel had fun painting stripes of various colors and then started with the glitter. Finally she added washi tape because she wanted to and could. Then she decided she liked mine better. Perhaps it is because I didn't put quite so much on my pumpkin, but I like hers anyway. It was a fun weekend.
