Wood Branch Candle Holder

Hey everybody! How was your Thanksgiving? Here is a great DIY fall decor idea, from Infarrantly Creative. I love the rustic-ness in these candle holders!

And for the next month (I’m not sure how long) we won’t be having a computer so I probably won’t be posting anything for a while, unless I use my iPod but Safari always crashes when I try there 😡 … but I’ll definitely try.

The craft:

Tree Limb Candle Holder

The instructions are on the site!

Happy craftin,

Leaf Mason Jar Candle holder

Wow, you can probably tell I like these mason jars. This candle holder is awesome and so pretty! It would make a great table centerpiece for Thanksgiving I think.

And I dunno bout you, but I feel a little unprepared for Thanksgiving (even though I obviously don’t need to like prepare my house for guests or anything I’m a kid xD) #unprepared ha.

Well, happy craftin’!

Ombre Pinecone

I’ve been a little busy.. Here is a pretty fall craft from WhimZeeCal! I wish I had pine cones in my yard, but you can always buy some at a craft store such as Michael’s.

Here are the instructions..

Materials:

– A pinecone
– Acrylic paint in three or four different shade of the same color
– Angled paint brush
– An old toothbrush
Construction:

1. Take your toothbrush and clean off any dirt or bugs (recommend doing this step outdoor).
2. Take your paint brush and apply the first shade on to 1/4 of the pinecone (recommend starting with the darkest shade at the bottom of the pinecone and working your way up).
3. Continue painting the next shade to the next 1/4 of the pinecone.
4. Repeat step 3 with the rest of the shades until you reach the top. – See more at: http://www.whimzeecal.com/2013/09/diy-friday-ombre-pinecone-tutorial.html#sthash.fCVon7DX.dpuf

A great craft! So cute ❤
Happy crafting,

First blog post!

Hey, welcome to my first blog post, yay!

I would like to start by saying, fall is definitely my favorite season– the golden colored trees, the apple pie (I don’t have it that often but it reminds me of fall), the sweater weather, and of course, Thanksgiving and Halloween! Thanksgiving is a great time with family expressing what your grateful for. And Halloween, who doesn’t love Halloween, seriously. I still don’t know what I’m being for Halloween, its only like 17 days away or something… I’m obviously gonna make a DIY costume, the last time I wore a store bought one was when I was 6. Since then I’ve been making my own, and like just right now I realized that lol. I’ll just have to think about what I’m being, and look for ideas on the Internet.

See ya guys next time! Sorry for the post being so short haha, next I will hopefully show you guys some crafts for this season.
