Did I mention that we accidentally discovered the hardest DIY yard game in the world a few weeks ago? Technically it’s my fault because I was too rushed to get everything together for our rooftop watch party shoot that I didn’t want to take the time to find bigger metal washers to use as rings, but at least I was consoled by the hilarity of a grown man losing his composure with excitement over finally getting one ring around a goal post after a half an hour of relentless effort.
All of that to say you should totally make this DIY washers yard game, but just promise to buy big enough washers to where you don’t end up hating me for it…

Okay, so I might have actually missed the trick-or-treating boat for a lot of you with my poor timing on this project, but our model was too cute not to post so I decided to anyways! Besides, there is always next year if you’re the kind of parent that likes to DIY any time before the night before something is due… I can’t say that I’ll always be that prepared. So far my track record is really against me on that one.
For those of you that are ready to cram in one last Halloween craft for your kids’ sake, then this DIY pumpkin Halloween bucket has your name all over it. For the rest of you that only have fur babies that require no candy buckets, you can stick with the Halloween macaron DIY I shared on Insta last night!

I’ve learned several things in my four years of living in Texas, and two of those things are: 1) always have a koozie with you at all times and 2) if you can’t beat em’, join em’ when it comes to football parties. I think I’ve been to more football watch parties in the last year and half than I have almost my entire life total, so basically what I’m saying is I’m a professional now, obviously.
Veteran or not, I teamed up with Smirnoff ICE to bring you my modern take on the traditional watch party, so naturally it had to be a rooftop shindig. Mostly because I’ve always wanted a reason to throw a rooftop party, but let’s stay focused…
I accidentally stumbled on this Chiquita Banana inspired fruit headband idea when I was trying to come up with an easy craft idea for a Halloween party last month, and I kind of loved the way it turned out in practice runs so I decided to share it with you! And in case you’re the kind of gal that plans her Halloween costume the day something calls for one (like myself), this is the perfect last-minute costume idea for you! That is if you have small honeycomb tissue balls lying around your house anyways..
Also, I wish I could tell you this was not a natural pose for me to make while modeling my crafts, but I actually felt really at home with myself. I’m not sure what that says about me as a person, but mostly I’m just happy to have justified this unnecessary Anthropologie polka dot shirt purchase yet again.
