Chestnut Votive Holder: Fall Craft

Oh my…blogland is a blaze with Christmas already….I’m not quite there yet. There are a few commitments I have that require me to post Holiday ideas earlier than I would like….but for the most part I try to live in the current season…and right now it is all turkey talk. I love Thanksgiving….it has always been a favorite holiday in our house. I partnered up this holiday season with Diamond Nuts to come up with some unique ways to craft with the whole nuts. I will be posting a few more this month. All of them are great kid activities when you have extra kiddos in the house. A fun way to spend a little bit of time together:)

This Votive candle would be so pretty dressed up on a Thanksgiving table. Make several and place them down the table….scatter a few pumpkins and squashes, whole cheastnuts…some dried leaves…and your table is done!

Paint a Polka Dot Pumpkin

A few years back my friend Brittany made up the cutest chalkboard pumpkins. She painted a chevron pattern all around the sides and then in the middle she painted a large chalkboard oval that you could write fun Halloween messages on. It was a big hit at her kiddos fall festival.

That was my inspiration for my fall porch this year. I grabbed a few pumpkins and some black and white paint and went to town! These polka dots are so easy the novice crafter can do it….I promise! You just need the right size brush….if you can spin a top….then you can paint perfect polka dots. Easy!

Ghost Halloween Craft

Hey hey…happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend. It’s that time of year where we have a ton of extra candy in the house….send me some will power would you? My friends at Hershey’s sent a ginormous box of candy asking me to share with you a fun Halloween craft idea. Of course my kids think that I must realllllly be important now—since Hershey sent me candy…#ornot.

KitchenAid Giveaway!

Happy Monday! Can you smell fall in the air where you live? I just got back from walking Stella and I actually needed a vest on…woke me right up:) We projected a bit this weekend in the garage….it was in a state on emergency. How does that happen? It is like all of a sudden I look in every corner and it is a mess! We found a great workbench on sale at Harbor Freight and decided to get organized. I took a bunch of stuff to Goodwill that we no longer had a use for….now that I can see clearly what we have….I am hoping we keep things a bit more in place. I also worked on a project for a home that I am working on with some very cool homeowners…pop over to instagram to see:) I will be sharing that project soon too. I am going to try to shoot some pics today of the TV cabinet that I told you about last week….
