Fall Crafts

I decided I needed some Pinterest therapy today, and actually, it's the first time I've logged on to my account since we moved. Instantly, I felt happier looking at all the lovely fall crafts my friends are pinning. (By the way, if anyone wants to follow me, you can click that little P on the sidebar over there.) Anyhoo, here are three easy fall crafts that I would love to make...as soon as my life resembles some measure of normalcy again (i.e. weekend afternoons are all mine to do whatever I please).

Paper Pumpkins
How pretty are these paper pumpkins from Craftiness is not Optional? They would be so perfect as decor for Thanksgiving, but I'd be tempted to leave them up after that too.

Pinecone Owls
These pinecone owls from DRI remind me of crafts I did in elementary school, only way cooler. I also love that the owls look kind of retro, and each one would be unique depending on the pinecone you found.

Acorn Sachet
I've made lots of lavender sachets before; they're great to give as gifts at Christmas. They also make your clothes smell nice and are a natural way to ward off pests. This acorn sachet from Design Sponge is so sweet.

What crafts are you making (or pinning with the best of intentions)? Also, if you're on pinterest too, leave me a link to your boards. I'm always looking for great people to follow. xo, Mary

  2. That sachet is too cute! The previous owners left one in the master closet (not acorn-shaped) and it was so nice.
