Inspiration for my Fall To-Do Crafts & Projects – Tuesday {ten} No.11

Inspiration for my Fall To-Do Crafts & Projects – Tuesday {ten} No.11

It’s Tuesday and time for the Tuesday {Ten}.

The Tuesday {Ten} is all about sharing what’s going on, things you love, recent purchases, cute photos…pretty much all the sweet tidbits that make up daily life that you’d like to share, bundled in to one post. It can be short and sweet or filled with pictures and details…anything goes – just casual and fun!

I can feel the chill in the air and know the leaves will soon be quickly changing colors. I am patiently awaiting one of my most favorite times of the year. This week I thought I would share some autumn inspiration and pull together ten things on my fall to-do. I’m already falling for fall.

My Tuesday {Ten}

{one} Make a Wreath – A nice full wreath on the front door is one of my favorite elements of fall decor. I love the fact that any one of the wreaths pictured above would work all the way through November.

{two} Make a Fall Garland – I especially like the mini Indian corn – the husks are the pennants – how cute!

{three} Find Some Unique Pumpkins – I definitely will be picking up a variety of different pumpkins and gourds, like we did last year. I adore the unique colors, shapes and textures that say fall – without screaming it. {p.s. don’t forget to polish the pumpkins and gourds if you are using them inside – it not only pretties them up – it preserves them as well}

{four} Make a Pumpkin Topiary – Real or Faux, stacked or singles, I would really like to make some sort of version for my front porch this year.

{five} or perhaps I’ll just Stack Them on the Ground

{six} I am also loving this simple Pumpkin Display too!

{seven} Plant Bulbs for the Spring – Planting times vary depending upon your climate zone, but in most cases fall is the perfect time to plant daffodils and tulips for the spring – Many bulbs need to establish a good root system before the first frost so the earlier is better. I hope to get my little gardener to help as he always loves any excuse to play in the dirt.

{eight} Play with Some Glitter

{nine} Bake some Yummy Fall Treats – Like these Pumpkin and Gingerbread Ice Cream Sandwiches from Cannelle Et Vanille, Pumpkin Caramel Mousse Cakes from Bakers Royale , Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins from Made in Melissa’s Kitchen, and Inside Out Apple Pies from Tiny Urban Kitchen.

{ten} and Enjoy every second of the season with my little guy.

{I am anxiously awaiting his surgery – scheduled for this week}
