Ohhhh Fall....Crafts and things I love:

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

My favorite Season ever is finally here...The smell, sweaters, slipper boots, crunchy leaves in beautiful colors, the smell, baking...I could go on and on! I just wish fall wasn't followed by winter! Why can't it be fall and then spring :) So, since it is my favorite season and Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays, I have been busy decorating, baking, and doing crafts. Here are the decorations I put up thanks to some nagging and nudging from Mckay *I think he loves Halloween as much as me! The best part is that of course I did it on a tight budget and I want to share, in case there are other poor people out there that need ideas :)

This is my shelf above my TV....I'm pretty happy how it turned out....here are the details:

I live next to a field, so I cut down those branches and spray painted them black, I got the round mirror from the DI for $3 and the two pumpkins on the side from Hobby Lobby for about $8 dollars for both.

The straw in the middle jar I also picked from my field :) The crows are from Michaels they are $3 a piece. They used to have non-glitter ones but they were all sold out :( The old window I got from my mom a while back and the glass broke when I moved last....I LOVE it old rusticness! To keep it simple and not too busy, I just wrapped a Styrofoam wreath in orange fabric with a hot glue gun and attached it with some ribbon. I used one of my old frames and cut up a black & white polka dot gift bag to put in the frame and glued a flower to it that I had laying around.

The candle sticks are from the DI for $1 a piece...look at the picture below. The books are also from the DI for $1 a piece. I used a old frame from, you guessed it, the DI. I put orange fabric in it and glued on a spider silhouette.

and TADA, that is my Halloween shelf for under $20. Can you tell how many times I have used that sheet to spray paint. haha!

I made these pumpkins from fabric I had around. HERE is a wonderful tutorial....I am sure you have all seen them before. I had to think of something for my coffee table that is wouldn't matter if Piper got to and pulled down :)

I got this idea from HERE, she had the templates you can print and everything! I got the frames for $1 each and spray painted them and added ribbon. Sooooo cute!

Made these pillows for my couch from a simple panel and JoAnns. The kids picked them out....we also make new pillow cases every year for each holiday. So they have some spooky pillow cases too.
I sat and tied this wreath for my front door one night with some left over fabrics from my bin. HERE are the directions. I used a wreath from the dollar store though.

I also made this small table runner....I thought it would be good for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

This is our huge spider outside our front door...he's the kiddos favorite part :) It has been so fun decorating with the kids...I think this week we are gonna do a count down chain and make some bats and get ready for our big annual Halloween Party! I Can't wait!

I thought I would also share some things I love and am totally digging right now about Fall:

I hope you are all having a wonderful Fall so far!
