When I was decorating for fall with Lindsey, I really wanted to make these covered Dollar Store pumpkins I saw on The Southern Institute Blog . We got all the stuff and covered four different ones.

1- Thick Twine
2- Fall covered yarn
3- Burlap
4- Paper ( I tried scrapbook but it was too thick, so we switched to an awesome tissue paper we found)

Here is the yarn one, Lindsey started it using Mod Podge. She had to go part way though and I actually ended up using hot glue to finish it.

Here is the twine covered one, using a hot glue gun.

Here are all four! With various accents from the craft store to finish them.
The burlap was attached with hot glue, and the tissue with mod podge.

Fall decorated sugar cookies

After the Pioneer Woman posted about this amazing book, I immediately ordered it. Today i used Bridget’s recipes for my cookies and icing, i highly recommend this book. If you don’t have it just start with your favorite sugar cookie dough!

Fall Wreath

New burlap wreath all decorated for fall.

I love this wreath! I found this tutorial on Pinterest from Top This Top That. It is a fun, cheap, easy burlap wreath that can be used year round. I made mine a couple weeks ago just in time for fall.

It is hung from a Command hook, upside down on the inside back of the door. Not to do any damage and to hide the way it’s hung.

I got the burlap from Home Depot (cheaper than craft stores), then bought the flowers and fall leaves from Michaels. So much fun!!

I love fall!
The last few days my friend and I have been all over Dollar Tree and Michaels buying stuff to craft with for our “Pintrest craft day” and it turned into lots of fall decorating and fall decorated sugar cookies.
