DIY Baby Pumpkin Hat for Halloween

It's getting close to Halloween! You know what that means! I get all of the Reese's Pumpkins! *evil laugh* Don't worry. I'm not stingy. I'll leave all of the dum-dum suckers.

For Halloween last year, a friend of mine let me borrow her daughter's pumpkin outfit for my 8-month-old (at the time) baby girl. She had misplaced the hat, so I had to figure something out to complete the costume. I figured I would just buy a hat that looked similar, but I couldn't find one anywhere.

After checking out a few more Halloween stores, I ended up at Hobby Lobby. I didn't know what to get, so I just browsed the store for about 30 minutes and found an orange bandana and a green flower with green leaves. I'm not incredibly crafty, but I figured I could do something with it.

Ozeri Fresko Duo Salt and Pepper Grinder Review

Finding an aesthetically pleasing, durable salt and pepper grinder for a reasonable price these days has been somewhat of a hassle for me. The ones that I have purchased in the past have either been made of cheap materials, or didn't grind the salt and pepper to my liking.

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Ozeri again, this time, on a review of the Fresko Duo Salt and Pepper Grinder.
