Fall Family Room 2015

Here's a peek at our family room fall decorations.  Again, like most of my rooms, I have a hard time finding anything in the blues to match.  Luckily, I found these two fall printables on pinterest, and made my burlap harvest banner.  I went ahead and painted my pumpkin aqua and added the small white pumpkins to fit right in!

Fall Foyer 2015

I thought I'd share our fall foyer decor!  It's not always easy finding blue fall accents.  So I tent to stick with white or I have to resort to making my own, like the wood harvest sign.  I hope you like it!

  I happen to have one piece of old wood left from my grandma and grandpa's outhouse, which worked perfect for this fall harvest sign.

Girl's Pumpkin Coin Purse

My girls have a serious purse fetish.  You name it, tote bags, hand bags, coin purses, so I thought why not make them one for the holidays.  Having all of these orange buttons, I thought I'd use some of them up!  The girls loved it and can't wait to use their new pumpkin coin purse.
Girl's Pumpkin Coin Purse

 What you'll need:
orange and brown felt
orange buttons
metal clasp
 Start by cutting two pieces of your orange felt in the shape of a pumpkin.  Cut a strip of the orange felt about 1/2 inch by 3 inches long.  Next, cut your brown felt in the shape of the stem.  With your brown stem and orange strip (folded in half around your metal clasp) pined into place, sew around the edges, leaving the top open.  Now that your coin purse is all sewn together, start glueing your buttons on.  I used hot glue, which is easy because of the quick dry time.  Starting with one layer and filling in the spaces with a second layer on top.  With a few tiny spots still open, I filled them in with orange rhinestones.  My girls love any sort of bling!!  As far as a closure for the coin purse, I used an adhesive velcro.  I did put a drop of fabric glue to make it a little more secure.  I'm sure your daughter would love one as well.  Give it a try!!

Pumpkin Pillow

With the fall season already here, I still was in need of some more decor.  I happened to have some fabric left over from a ottoman that I had recovered which I thought would work just perfect for a pillow.  I sewed the fabric into a pumpkin shape, added a stem and than a bow.  I'm still in need of some more decor but every little bit helps.  Even if it's just a pillow!

Sweater Pumpkin

Again, as I'm preparing more fall decor, I decided to give these sweater pumpkins a try.  Turned out they were very simple.  Start out with a old sweater at the back of your closet.  
First off, cut off the entire sleeve to give yourself a little less fabric to have work with.  Next, turn the sleeve inside out.  At the very end of the sleeve, tie a knot.  Now, turn your sweater right side out leaving your tied not inside the future pumpkin. Stuff the entire end portion of the sleeve as full as you can, until you can form it into somewhat of a ball shape.  

Once into a ball, tie the top with a piece of twine.  If you choose, you can also add a few cross ties, to add to your pumpkin shape.  Very tightly, wrap your twine about one inch up to create your stem.  Once your stem is finished, cut all of the access fabric off.  If you have some type of wired twine, you can add a few spirals.  Just another, inexpensive fall decoration!

Crackle Pumpkin

Back to fall again, I wanted to bring a touch of it into my living room without using bright tacky orange pumpkins.  I did happen to have a few of those pumpkins sitting around so I thought I'd give one a makeover.  To try to give the pumpkin a crackle look, I first of all, painted it with elmer's glue.  After drying for a few minutes and felt a bit tacky to touch, I painted it aqua.  When the pumpkin was completely dry it had a perfect crackle finish.  Aqua pumpkin, I little out of the norm, but it'll match with a nice aged look!
