Drilled Craft Pumpkin Luminaries | #michaelsmakers - It's the beginning of September and I can already feel the chill in the air this morning. While we still have a couple more weeks until the official beginning of fall, that is enough for me to begin thinking about changing leaves, autumn activities and, of course, all things pumpkin! It will be a few more weeks before these festive beauties are ready to be harvested at our local roadside stand, so we couldn't resist bringing a couple of craft pumpkins home from the Michaels ‘pumpkin Continue reading

Craft Pumpkin Candle Holders - #michaelsmakers | September is finally here and we are highly anticipating the arrival of fall. We have a few festivities lined up the next couple of months so I'm anxious to get a jump start on our fall decor. It will be a few more weeks before the pumpkins are ready to be harvested at our local roadside stand, so I made a trip to Michaels Pumpkin Patch for some early picking. This year I decided to turn our pumpkins into some Craft Pumpkin Candle Holders as part of the Michaels Makers September Continue reading

Homemade Fire Starters - backyard fire pit safety reminders | During the fall we get to experience our outdoor living area with a whole new set of eyes. It's that time of year when the yard work slows down and the majority of any outdoor projects plans have finally come to a close. The time of year we like to take advantage of the early sunsets and cool crisp evening air. Honestly, the time of year we are usually ready to finally sit down and enjoy and our wonderful surroundings. While we have begun to prepare the rest of the outdoors for the Continue reading

Painted Rock Pumpkins - fall kids pumpkin craft | This post brought to you by Wet Ones . All opinions are 100% my own. #wetones As back to school rolls in we have been enjoying the gorgeous weather outdoors as much as we can. While it's still a little too warm around here to grab some real pumpkins from our local farmers stand, we decided to kick off the season by making a miniature patch of our own. These painted rock pumpkins are so much fun - I think I enjoyed them just as much as my little guy. We got to spend some time outdoors paired Continue reading

How to Make a Wooden Wheelbarrow Planter | fall wheelbarrow outdoor pumpkin display

How to make a wooden wheelbarrow planter | This time of year it seems as though we can't leave the store without another pumpkin, gourd or other piece of harvest inspired paraphernalia. My little guy loves grabbing something new for our collection each visit. (and I admit, I love this time of year just as much and may sneak in my own piece... or two) While we have been working on sprucing up the yard the past couple of weeks - I decided a wooden wheelbarrow would create the perfect home for displaying all of these gathered fall Continue reading

Paper Leaf Garland – sketch and cut

Paper Leaf Garland | I'm certainly not trying to rush the end of summer but the little guy and I spotted some changing leaves the other day and it has me yearning for fall. The changing of the seasons makes me want to make our home all warm and cozy - and I just love this time of year. The trail walk inspired me to put together this simple paper leaf garland for CJ's school room. It's incredibly easy and since it's made of paper, the leaves can be packed away at the end of the season for additional crafting next year. I used my Silhouette Continue reading
