Woodsman’s Pal

18N1150

Standard US Army issue since 1941. Weighs less than 1-1/2 lbs. If you only work one-handed, this will feel like an extension of your arm.

The Classic model with its leather handle and hand guard (overall length 17″, steel blade a full 1/8″ thick) will slice through green wood up to 1-1/2″ thick with a single stroke. One side has an 8″ long concave edge and the other a 2″ long hook.

The long reach Brush Cutter model has a much thinner (1/16″) blade with an extra-long handle. It’s designed to slice through vines, briars and other kinds of thick, brushy growth quickly.

As a pair, they can tackle just about any job. The optional Leather Sheath fits the Classic Woodman’s Pal only. Great for easy carrying and protection.

Made in the USA. (more)

Halloween Painted Jar Luminaries

halloween-painted-luminaries-amanda-formaro-600x1857

This isn’t the first time I’ve made luminaries for Halloween. Several years ago I made these painted Ghost Luminaries which are posted on FamilyCorner, these decoupaged Pumpkin Luminaries and this Candy Corn luminary which are both posted on Disney’s Kaboose. Today I made some colorful luminaries inspired by the ones I saw on this cute blog called Not So Idle Hands. While Emily uses the decoupage method with strips of tissue paper, I opted for what I believe to be an easier, faster and less expensive method… paint. (more)

Dancing Lawn Ghosts

Poke a Styrofoam ball through the top of a white or green tall garden/fence stake or spray painted dowel, and then cover it with white fabric or cheesecloth. Lightweight fabric will pick up in the wind more, giving them the illusion that they’re dancing. If your fabric is on the sheer side, you might want to use a couple of layers.

Make several of them and place them in a circle with the fabric corners tied together. You can secure the fabric over the Styrofoam with hot glue and a few white push pins in the very top for extra security. They look really cool dancing around a tree or faux fire pit!
