Round 3: Readers create wreaths & pumpkins

I’m seriously in awe that I was able to inspire so many amazing people to create their own wreaths and pumpkins!

Here are more crafts done by my readers.

More wreaths!

This Fresh Fossil‘s wreath. You HAVE TO go read what happened to her wreath. Too funny!

Here’s Mommas Kinda Crafty‘s version of the Dollar Store wreath:

Addicted to Homes made one:

Kat emailed me her wreath:
katwreath

Sandy Sewz also made a wreath!

AND a dryer pumpkin!

Keeping It Simple enlisted her boys to help make some pumpkins.

Today Along the Journey was inspired by all my ORB talk (Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint) that she used it for her pumpkins!

On a side note…

Michelle from Sustainably Chic Designs copied my cheese dome cloche!

La Bella Casa made some decor balls using my tutorial!!

Great job everyone! I LOVE all your hoh inspired crafts!


     

H A Double-L O W Double-E N spells “Halloween”

DSCN6002

I’ve temporarily taken down the Fall decor and busted out the Halloween stuff!

I pulled out my box-o-scariness…

DSCN5952

… if you can call it “scary”

DSCN5989

I’m more of a “cutesy” seasonal decorator.

DSCN5959

I had most of my decor already, but I did make a few spray paint adjustments…

DSCN5955

I painted the wreath black as well as the candle stick that I bought months ago.

DSCN5993

For the wreath I decided to go low-key. I just painted a wreath black and hung it with a 1 1/2″ thick orange ribbon.

DSCN5964

I was planning on doing more detail on the wreath, but once it was painted I really liked it plain.

DSCN5999

I love my little crow perched up on top of the mirror. Subtle and spooky.

DSCN6005

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter, In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.

DSCN5962

I bought this little guy from the Dollar Spot and gave him a fresh coat of white spray paint for plastic.

I added a few subtle details…

DSCN5975

Lots of spider webs

and candles

and hints of ribbon

and cute spooky little ghosts and pumpkins

DSCN6008

and spiders.

DSCN6009

Cutesy and glitter make me giddy.

DSCN5986

And the Halloween mantle is DONE.

DSCN5962

I turned my fall table piece into a Halloween one by adding some moss and ribbon.

DSCN6017

DSCN6020

Little bits of ribbon can make anything look festive!

DSCN6026

I used a sharpie to draw a face on the lil’ punkin’

DSCN5981

Isn’t it cute with the moss and spider and web?

DSCN5982

Who can resist a mini truffle dish with moss, skulls, and a bow?

DSCN5985

More cutesy stuff.

DSCN6030

I wish I could take credit for these, but I bought them years ago on a mega after-Halloween sale.

DSCN6037

So adorable.

DSCN6054

And of course Halloween just isn’t complete with a spooky glitter tree!

DSCN6050

Candy, anyone?

DSCN6052

Here’s to a fun,

Halloween!


     

A Fall centerpiece

DSCN5875

As much as I liked the centerpiece on my coffee table, it really needed a Fall makeover.

My new centerpiece took me less than 10 minutes to put together and was free!

(I only used stuff I had laying around the house)

DSCN5882

DSCN5880

To create this super cute centerpiece, I took the tray from the last centerpiece, set it on top of a placemat I already had, and added some fake leaves.

DSCN5855

Then I added two dollar store glass vases and a few fake plastic acorns and apples from the Dollar Spot at Target.

DSCN5857

You can see that I was playing around with which size candle to use.

I decided I wanted to have the little ones because I thought they were cuter, but they needed something under them to raise them up.

So I went to my pantry…

And came up with this:

DSCN5858

I also wanted the candles to have something cute on them so I just took some hemp and leaves and tied them to the side of each candle.

DSCN5861

Testing it out…

DSCN5862

I love it. I can proceed now! Yay!

A lot of my crafts are trial and error. I just play around with different elements until I get a look I like.

Finally, I just added the glass jars back on the tray and I was done!

DSCN5868

One thing to point out if you make your own display is to make the levels of the lentils at different heights. It gives it more depth.

DSCN5869

I am very pleased with how this display turned out.

And seriously, it was really easy to throw together!

DSCN5875

I have no idea what is going on with my newel and large decor ball in the background. Ha! Kids! I didn’t even notice until after I took the pictures. Silly kids. (But I did paint the newel green. It’s slowly coming along…)

DSCN5869

Now I’m just one step closer to having a Fall house!

DSCN5880

Except now I really should move things around a bit until the end of October to make room for all the

HALLOWEEN DECOR

Have a great Fall, y’all!
