Happy September. Fall is fast approaching. I’ve decided to embrace the changing of the season by crafting up this “Welcome Home” sign using FolkArt brand stencils and some of my favorite fall colored FolkArt acrylic paints. I just love how it turned out. With my new sign surrounded by a few strategically placed accessories, I’m ready for hay rides, candy apples and pumpkin spiced lattes! Disclosure: Some supplies have been provided by Plaid, and I…Continue reading Fall Welcome Home Sign
Hello, Gators! I told you I’d be back before the month’s end with more Halloween goodness. This year instead of a Christmas window display, I’ve decided to create a Halloween window.

Not only did they ask me to participate in their Halloween DIY Queens… and Kings blog hop with all of these talented influencers, but my post was…Continue reading Halloween Tree: Treetopia DIY Queens… and Kings!
I wanted a new doormat to welcome guests during autumn. I love a DIY doormat. One of the very first projects I created on this blog was a Personalized Doormat. They’re easy to decorate and a wonderful way to personalize your entryway. I picked up this natural tan mat from my local hardware store. You can also give a worn out existing mat a facelift using this technique. First, I spray painted it gold. After the gold…Continue reading Autumn Doormat

I don’t like the way candy corn tastes, but I love the way it looks. That’s why I made this candy corn inspired art piece. It’s the perfect compliment to my Candy Corn Topiaries. My friends like to give me odds and ends to craft with. I inherited the colored pingpong balls used in this project that way. You can find them online fairly easily with a simple Google search. The amount needed depends on the…Continue reading Candy Corn Pingpong Ball Art

Looking for some inexpensive Halloween decor? These three wreaths are sure to impress and won’t break the bank. Believe it or not, all of the items to make them came from Dollar Tree! For the fringed wreath, I picked up two orange and black fringed garlands, a battery operated light up Halloween lantern and a 10 inch foam floral wreath. First, using some black ribbon that I also purchased at Dollar Tree, I hung the lantern…Continue reading Dollar Store Halloween Wreaths
