FALLing in love

Okay, so maybe I’m not ACTUALLY falling in love. My love for fall has always been strong. I love having a house full of pumpkins and everything that smells like fallthem, I love the color schemes and the temp outside! BUT- this year I have a special little babe and he makes me love everything so much more than I did before because I get to share it all with him! And although he isn’t old enough to appreciate all of my crafts/decor just yet, I’m still just as excited about it because at least he’s here and I’m pretending he loves it ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I have posted most of these pictures already because like I said- the excitement- but I’ll go ahead and post them all here so they are in one place. My friend and I recently had a craft date which resulted in the wreaths- super easy! We got everything we needed fromย Michaels and even a little extra for our next craft:) A little tip on hanging your letter: the letters from fall2Michaels that are already painted like this one have a slick finish on them that doesn’t work very well with hot glue. But on the back of the letter there is a place for it to be hung- so I found a thick screw and wedged it into a tight spot in my wreath and just hung the letter on it. It’s surprisingly secure and was way easier than trying to hot glue it like I tried on my last wreath.

Anyway, if you haven’t yet, go outside and smell the fall front sweeping in! It’s better than my pumpkin scented candles ๐Ÿ˜‰ From my family to yours- HAPPY FALL!!

What’s it gonna be?

I have always loved making things. Craft things, assembling things, trying to put things together without the instructions because who needs those? But- my dad is a Carpenter, so I may have grown up with a slight advantage in the assembly department ๐Ÿ™‚

chalkboard beforeMy latest DIY project was pretty easy! But I’m very fortunate to have my dad around to always fetch the extra pieces I need from job sites. This project started out as two oak frames that I picture used to be cabinet doors. They had spots where hinges used to be on the back, and also a spot where handles used to be on the front. To a lot of people, this pair probably just looked like firewood. But when Jordan showed them to me, I immediately thought to myself- “Awesome! What’s it gonna be?” chalkboard after

After weeks of trying to figure out the perfect use for these frames, the answer turned out to be chalkboards! I am so excited about these for the fall so that I can draw little pumpkins and really dress them up! Hopefully they will be hung by then ๐Ÿ™‚


I’m in love with the way these turned out! There is something so rewarding about making your own decorations if you’re able. Try it out if you’re up for it!
