Crafty Ideas: Fall Crafts and Decorating

With fall fast approaching, I decided that I would scour the internet and some of my favorite blogs and websites looking for some great ideas for Halloween and fall decorating.  Here are a few that I found that I am thinking about doing myself:

 Love this sign!  Jump over to lil blue boo and view Ashley’s tutorial on how to make it.

How about this Jute Monogram Wreath over at the HGTV website?

Look at these cute little soft squash!  Great craft to do with the kids!

Look at this great fall wreath!  How-to’s over at

Love this door arrangement, again over at

Over at A Little Tipsy, Michelle has the cutest Halloween projects! Here are a couple of them, but stop by and check out the rest!

OK, I thought that I would look for some recipes to add.  I love fall baking!

The Bakery Spot has a list of 35 of yummy recipes, as you can see from the pictures above, for goodies to make using pumpkin, apples, and cinnamon.  All my favorites!

I think these crafting and baking ideas will get me started.  If you do any of these crafts, or bake any of these goodies, let me know and share pictures!  I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Fall!!

My Pumpkin Patch

I have been growing my own pumpkin patch here….

Pumpkin w/Sunflower

Small Pumpkin

Berries & Corn Pumpkin

Pumpkin w/BirdnestThis has been keeping me busy this past week.  I took a couple into work that I had left from the batch that I had made last year (I think that I had sold about 8 of them last year)……


These are just a few.  I can’t seem to keep up with the orders at work!  But I love it!  Since fall seems to be slow coming here, these have really made it seem more like the season!

I’ll be posting more about what I’ve been up to in the next couple of days.  For now, enjoy the fall and planning the upcoming holidays!

Take care, Cheryl.
