Five Minute Crafts: Decorating Pumpkins with Stickers


Stickers. What is it about them that makes me still a little giddy all of these years later?

Tell me I’m not the only one who had a love affair with stickers in the 80’s…Hello Kitty.  She had my big fat puffy sticker heart! Little Twin Stars came in a close second.

What did we even do with all of these stickers? I know I kept mine, sheets of them, in my Hello Kitty pencil holder.  It was puffy too, with a little magnet that held it shut or I sometimes put them on the cover of my Trapper Keeper.  Now if they were super-duper special they went into the “sticker book” where I would proudly display them at lunch.  We would eat our PB & J sandwiches and compare and admire our sticker collections.

My taste in stickers might have changed, but not my love for them! They are just so much fun and so easy to work with.  Besides, if you have ever seen my handwriting you would know why I like to revert to stickers when it comes to typography projects….

For example this pumpkin project.  You would not want to see how it would have looked if I had actually WROTE the words out!
