Shabby Chic Pumpkins

This is not your typical pumpkin! Why do pumpkins need to be orange? Well in my house they don't, I wanted something that matched my farmhouse style so I designed these easy pumpkins that are rustic but elegant. So lets not waste time its October already, but these are fast and you can use them until Thanksgiving.

welcome to the north pole

Welcome to the NORTH POLE!

I wanted to do something different for the holidays. So, I put my thinking cap on and came up with this beauty. I think everyone can enjoy this fun Christmas project a North Pole sign. I'm not sure if I'll us this outside for my porch or inside.. most likely outside. I also thought this would be great for hanging our stockings since we don't have a fireplace. I hope you're as excited as me to make this!

I love using unconventional materials to make craft projects, in this case my friend saw these on the local Marketplace sale page and they were right up the street from me. She said Shelly I know you can make something with these and she sent me a few pictures and this is what I came up with. All items I had on hand! The spools were only $5 for all 4 of them. So this is going to be an easy fun project that maybe some of you will do. Next time you see the spools you'll know what you can make with them.

It's Fall time again and its so fun to decorate from now all the way to Christmas, so many great projects and gift ideas to make. I just can't stand it! I really can't post every item I make because I do so many! I think people think I'm crazy because every day I wake up and say what can I made today and I hit the floor running. Lets make this great scrap wood pumpkin I did for a football fund raiser for a local school I think I did about 40 of them. It was fun and helped the team, it's always nice to be able to give back.

Witch Legs Cauldron Candy Stand

I am so excited about this post today! My Witch legs make the grandest of grand statements, this Halloween. My witch candy holder also can functions as a Halloween server which will be a sure party pleaser. It can be used with dry ice or you can fill it with candy, set it on the table with a tray on it for cookies. It is just a fun project so lets get started!

$3 Burlap Pumpkin

Shabby Chic fall décor.. A nice spin to the traditional pumpkin. It only cost $3 and you can get all these items at your local Dollar Tree. Side note: did you know you can order online and have it ship to the store at no cost? I used those bright orange foam pumpkins. One roll of burlap poke-a-dot ribbon. One roll covers perfectly with about an 1" to spare, some twine and a hot glue gun. I loved this simple DIY project great for any beginner. I hope you'll love as much as I do!

Spell Book DIY

Create a spell book for Halloween, make any bookshelf look extra spooky. This is a great way to repurpose books or if you don't have any pick one up at the dollar store. Any hard cover book will work and add some three dimensional trinkets to make it creepy. Every year I make a couple to add to my collection. This year I thought I'd share how I do mine. This spell book is fun and simple and is great for kids and adults of all ages.

Copper Pumpkins Make With Just 3 Items

I love repurposing items to do something super cute and this project is no different. Here is how to make pumpkins from scourer pads. All you need is 3 items and these cute pumpkins can be at the table, place cards, or you can whip up a bunch of these for fall décor or present toppers. They add shine to any vignette.

String Roll Pumpkins

I had these vintage rolls of crochet tread and I wanted to use them with fall coming. I thought why not a pumpkin. I had everything here at the house, which is always great if you can make something from the things you already have.

Just another use for all the scrap wood laying around. Wood boxes can be used for so many things from trays to centerpieces. This is just another spin on a simple wood box. It can hold something everyone out there uses daily! Something we all just can't live with out. Let's get started
