    Wood Block Pumpkins

    Wood Block Pumpkins  Pin Me! – Pinterest  The other day while at Lowes I picked up an untreated 4x4x6. I can’t remember the cost, I think around $10. But, for $10 this one piece of lumber is going to make me a couple cute crafts. These wood block pumpkins were my main reason for buying the 4×4. I got my hubby to cut them down to size and I did the rest, of course. These were so easy to make, let me show you how you can make them, too! Materials: 4×4 orange paint antiquing paint if you want a more rustic look Paint brush Sanding block (Only needed if…

    Flannel & Pine Cone Garland

    Flannel & Pine Cone Garland  Most of the supplies needed for this Flannel & Pinecone Garland can be found right at your fingertips! We went to the local park to gather all the pinecones along with a few other supplies for another craft. Since my husband didn’t have any old flannels that I liked I headed to the Goodwill and picked some up. I bought the sunflowers at the dollar tree and while I was there I found that they also sell raffia and twine. I would use the raffia, but I would advise against the twine, as I don’t think it will be long enough or strong enough. You can head to…

    Cement Candy Corn Yard Ornaments  These Cement candy corns are fun to make and will be a great addition to your fall decor.

    DIY Tomato Stake Fall Tree

    DIY Tomato Stake Fall Tree I have been seeing these around everywhere lately and decided to try making one of my own. They are really easy to make and look so stinking cute! I wish I would have made one last year! I want to mention that in the photo above I made a mistake, I should have wrapped the lights on and THEN the Burlap ribbon. You can see how it looks a little funny with the lights going around the burlap.. Oops! Also, it will probably look a lot cuter once those mums beside it bloom 😉 What you will need:  Tomato Stake 7-8 Packs of leaf garland…

    DIY Burlap Napkin rings

    DIY Burlap Napkin Rings The other day I was pondering about all the strange things I know being a DIY/food blogger and one of those strange things is the fact that I know a toilet paper roll is 4 inches long. I mean that’s not normal, is it?  I’ve been kind of obsessed with empty toilet paper rolls lately. There’s so many cool DIY projects you can do with them as you will be seeing over the next couple months (that was your warning). But I am in love with these burlap napkin rings that I made. These are very inexpensive to make and fairly easy! I think they would…
