A fun way to give your garden a pop of color is to paint garden pavers from the home supply store to look like your favorite garden creatures. You can often find them for less than .50 each, which makes this a very inexpensive craft.
I recently found a felt owl in the Dollar Spot area of my favorite store. The tag said it was a table mat, and while it was nice the way it was, I had a much better idea for it.
I love to use dollar store craft pumpkins in my fall and Halloween crafts. I have many Halloween themed pumpkins that I put out every year. This year I decided to also make a pumpkin that could be used from the beginning of fall all the way to Thanksgiving.
