On my windowsill above the sink sit jars of Fire Cider and herb flavored vinegar. Now is the time to start these if you want them ready for gift giving during December. Use Fire Cider daily to kick-start your day. A teaspoon – tablespoon should do the trick. It may also be used to help your body fight common colds. One sip will heat your insides! Herbal vinegar is a fun ingredient for salad dressings or marinades. Let your creative mind play with what herbs to use. [Read more…]
Last night I made a super cool Halloween craft – the candy corn cone craft I’ve been seeing around everywhere. I thought they were great, but I wanted to brighten it up a bit. With all the excitement of meeting Kathie Lee Gifford over the weekend, I also had wine on my mind. 😉 Also, on my way to work this morning, when I talked to my sister about it, we came up with this quick and easy wine bottle candy corn light. Tonight I worked through it as it was a little bit trickier than the candy corn cones. The smooth surface and shape of the bottle created a little challenge but was well worth it!
Here are the steps for this Halloween Craft Candy Corn Light:
Is it really only 2 weeks until Halloween? Wow! Time flies by when you are crafting! The fall leaf rose was such a success a lot of our projects took a back burner as we answered our fans’ comments on the blog and on Facebook and made the video tutorial for leaf roses. But now we are back to creating, crafting, and sharing! We stumbled on to these Candy Corn Decorations last night at Adventures of Goldilox and just had to try them! So easy, affordable supplies and they come out so darn cute, what’s not to love?! Because you can put them inside or outside, they are perfect for brightening up any decor and bringing out the good feelings of this time of year. Just make sure if you put them outside you bring them in during rainy weather!
This fall leaf garland takes advantage of the brilliant colors of autumn. While out looking for leaves to make more fall leaf roses, my imagination was running wild! Bill and I picked up so many colors and even found a couple fallen branches we dragged home.
I made a couple more fall leaf roses and then took the rest to make this fall leaf garland for our post outside. This is another free and easy fall decoration that was fun to do!
Here’s how I did it:
Since writing the post about DIY Fall Leaf Roses, we’ve been asked how to preserve them. Of course, we have since they are so beautiful and fun to make! Who wouldn’t want to keep them around as long as possible? There are quite a few ways to preserve dried leaves and flowers. #3. How To Preserve Leaves with Hairspray is our favorite way but we’ve listed other ways below so you can choose what you like best. If you have other ways, we would all love to hear about them!
I found these easy DIY fall leaf roses on Facebook but the person who posted it was not the girl who created it, Nicole Duke. I did a Google search for Nicole Duke’s fall leaf roses and nothing came back directly about her but I LOVE this idea and had to share with you! It reminds me of the flowers my mom showed me how to make when I was a kid using leaves. I can picture these as a table centerpiece for Thanksgiving or a wedding. It’s a great autumn decoration. My family had a fun time using the fall leaves for roses and we are sure you will too!
