DIY Scrapbook Paper Pumpkins

Happy fall! I’m not quite ready to let go of heat and sunshine, but I do looooove fall! I can’t wait to see the leaves changing and fall crafts are my favorite.

First up on the fall crafts list are these cute scrapbook paper pumpkins. I used to make these little 3D pumpkins, as you might have, in elementary school, but when you make them with scrapbook paper, it makes a world of difference. Construction paper doesn’t do it justice. Read the whole post

DIY Floral Embroidery Hoop Wreath

You know those cute floral wreaths that people hang on their front doors? They are so cute! I wanted to make my own version, but didn’t want to buy the wreath forms you get at the hobby shops.

I decided that using embroidery hoops was the best option. It works quite well and I saved a lot of money going that route. These are super cheap, like $2-$5 at Michaels or Amazon vs the wreath forms which can be $20-$30. Read the whole post

DIY Pumpkin Candles

Pumpkin candles are the easiest, cutest fall crafts! All you really need is a mini pumpkin, a knife, candle wax, and a wick.

Their small size makes them a nice addition to a mantel, table centerpiece, or a windowsill.

Oh, and there’s another perk to making these… the pumpkin seeds! You can roast them and eat them later and they’re just wonderful. I’ll be sharing a how-to on that topic later.

Okay, let’s get started!

DIY Pumpkin Vase Fall Decor

I know it’s getting a bit late in the year for this, but I’ve wanted to make a pumpkin vase for a while now, so here we are.

Most of my decor crafts are versatile and multifunctional for several holidays because I don’t like to store much. I doubt I can have my pumpkin vase sitting on my table in July without any questioning me. Then again, what do I care?

This is my exception to the holiday no decorating rule because it’s so adorable. Read the whole post

DIY Fall Table Centerpiece with Flowers

Fall is here and it’s beautiful. Well, I guess it’s beautiful if you live in Western PA and get to live in the changing leaves as I do. It gets me in the mood to craft things like centerpieces or wreaths.

BUT if you’ve followed my blog, you know that I’m not crazy about festive decor because you can only use it for a short time. This fall craft project is perfect because I can swap out the fall flowers and the ribbon for any season and it’s still “festive”. Read the whole post

Goodwill Lantern Upcycle

I love Goodwill. It’s like a goldmine with all its discarded goodies. Among these goods was this roughed up lantern. Look at the chipped paint and ugly flowers. Ugh. That has to go.

Goodwill lantern purchase

It’s definitely in rough shape but I knew I could save it, so i bough it… for $2.99! I immediately went to buy spray paint and headed home to beautify it.

DIY Farmhouse Wood Sign

As some of you might know, my husband and I are now homeowners, so I’ve been more compelled to decorate. There’s no one to tell me I can’t put holes in my walls or paint them fun colors. Why not, then?

One of my latest projects is this cute farmhouse style home sign. This is a multi-season one. Every spring, fall, winter and summer I can swap out the bow for a different one, making it just as festive as the previous season. Read the whole post

DIY Wood Snowman and Scarecrow Reversible Holiday Decor


Some people go all out decorating for the holidays, and it always looks amazing. But I always wonder where the heck the store their decorations in the off season? I have an apartment, so storing decorations is not a viable option.

However, this type of decoration is more my style because it’s a two in one kind of deal… snowman on one side and scarecrow on the other. That means I can use it for more than a month at a time. Read the whole post

DIY Sweet Orange Fall Candle

There’s a chill in the air and everyone is talking about fall. That means autumn smells are permeating craft stores and Thanksgiving DIY projects are in season.

Every year around this time, I like to make candles. Something about the cold weather makes me enjoy them so much more. This week, that’s exactly what I’m doing. Sweet orange sounded like a good scent since I’m not quite into the cinnamon spice deal just yet.

The candles are really easy to make and won’t take up much of your time. Read the whole post
