Halloween Crafts

Several months ago, I found a few pictures on Pinterest {Are you following me?  You really should!} using embroidery hoops to display funky fabric on the walls.  

I mean, seriously, how cute is this?
 Or this for Christmas?
  
It just so happened that my amazing Mother had some extra embroidery hoops just lying around at her house.  I offered to take them off her hands, I'm such a thoughtful and generous daughter, and she agreed.  I used a few left-over pieces of fabric and added a few new ones to create this wall in my entryway.  Isn't it just the cutest?  It makes me so happy whenever I walk past, plus, I now have a place to check my lipstick before I run out the door.
If you look closely, just to the right of the mirror {which, by the way, came from my Dad's old office}, there is an embroidered heart made by my dear friend, Amy.  How sweet is that???

I still had a few scraps of fabric left-over and was searching for something to do with them until I saw this.

These adorable pumpkins {found on Pinterest, of course} just jumped out at me and couldn't help but make them.
I followed the easy, peasy directions here and was so excited at how they came out.
I absolutely love orange and blue together and am thrilled that they look "fall-ish" but are much brighter than the typical orange, yellow, and brown combination.
This bowl of pumpkins just makes my heart happy!

  1. I do lots of "pinning" but not so much follow-through. ;-) Your finished projects are so cute!
