I promise I have not been trapped under something heavy in my absence. I seriously have so many behind the scenes things I have been working on...various projects that I hope to share with you soon. I have even been...ready? Organizing and decorating my new...CRAFT/HOMESCHOOL ROOM!
Oh the bliss of it all. ♥
Not to mention school starts for my oldest and both my girls are playing soccer. I am just plain old busy.
But I figured I could share some crafts I did last year for Fall. It's my favorite, most happy inducing time of year! But being in sunny Florida I gotta put forth the effort to make it feel like Fall. I even make it smell all cinnamony. Or sporting the fake pumpkins outside (boo to that). Real ones would be a squishy mess in a week. I should call the Fall decor inside of my house "Autumn Erupted" or something.
And I do get real pumpkins at the pumpkin patch and put them inside. I need the real pumpkins.
And incidentally...this craft is in this year's 100 days of Holidays at Parents.com. I always feel weird mentioning features in a post but I had this post going already so I figured I might as well mention it. :)
Apple PlatesI was one of the room mom's for Cati's class last year and got to do the parties. The first one I did was an apple theme. I think fruit themed decorating has untapped happiness potential. :) These are just regular dollar store plates and I used white, green, and tan card stock to make them into apples and a little sharpie for the seeds.
Who would not love a pom pom apple and some twine with paper leaves? Simple too.
You can check out those crafts posts here.
These were made with a combination of cake icing and cookie icing (to make them look like shiny apples) pretzels for the stems, and RIPS candy cut into leaves. Peek in on this one here.
Hope this leaves you with a little bit of inspiration (even though they are oldies but goodies) and to assure you that I am still here doing my crafty thing.
