I have seen these on Pinterest and Facebook a lot and finally have got around to making my own. This
easy DIY Fall Leaf Bowl Decoration is affordable and easy to do with children but it also makes a beautiful decoration for your home or a gift.
Ha. Ha. I wrote the introduction to this project before we actually did it. Lesson learned. It is not easy. But the results we got made us smile and I’m sure if we had more patience, they would have come out better… maybe?
Chris and I have been so excited about the fall foliage and making crafts with beautiful leaves. We challenged each other to come up with a new project to top last year’s Nicole Duke’s Leaf Roses. My project is a fall leaf candle holder using a canning jar, Mod Podge, a paintbrush, and leaves.

This Falling Leaves Glitter Garland helps me hang on to the beautiful leaves of autumn! A couple weeks ago we posted about Nicole Duke’s Easy and Free DIY Fall Leaf Roses. This weekend I found another EASY and inexpensive DIY project for those leaves all over the ground that can accent your home and make a great fall or Thanksgiving decoration. I picture them shimmering around a room during a late evening party.
Being a perfect project for any age, I encourage you to grab the kids and make a day of garland making. And who doesn’t love raking up some leaves, throwing them up in the air, and jumping in huge piles of them?

Flipping through a magazine, I came across this Lost Button Craft Frame project. Our family has the market on loose random buttons! My grandmother had tins of buttons she had collected through the years and this was passed on to my mother. I’m sure Emily has a bunch too. (Emily chiming in here: I have Gram’s buttons and some of Mom’s now as well!) I admit, in my new home, I’ve started a little box of buttons myself.
We save and save, afraid to throw them out because we know one day we will need one for a pair of pants, that jacket or shirt that popped its button… but realistically, we will never use all of our buttons… well, not until now. Check out this super easy, super cool Lost Button Craft Frame! [Read more…]
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:
This fall soup recipe is our favorite! It’s an Ayurvedic Squash Apple Soup! While it’s great to make it with newly harvested ingredients knowing everything is fresh, you can – and should – make this anytime. And make it often! Preparing and eating this warms you on the inside almost as much as this soup.
When people talk of doing something from start to finish, we always think of planting the seed, tending the crop, harvesting the produce, and preparing nutritious food. We also think of collecting buffalo fiber in the field, having it cleaned and carded, spinning it into yarn, and knitting socks – but that’s another blog post.
Following are directions for the most delicious, nutritious fall soup recipe!
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!

Calling all Green Thumbs! Let’s talk about how to grow vegetables in the winter! If you’re like most backyard gardeners, you think planting time doesn’t start until after the danger of frost has passed. Depending on where you live, this could be anytime between March and May. Waiting until then to plant crops means you also have to wait until mid-summer or early fall to begin enjoying the fruits of your labor. Instead, try these garden veggies you can plant in winter and start using your homegrown veggies much sooner! [Read more…]
The coronavirus has millions of people rushing to the stores and hoarding items like toilet paper. It’s a scary time and our big concern isn’t TP. These sisters are both wise shoppers and go to places like Sams Club to do our shopping for most items. When there is a sale, we stock up so paper products were the least of our concern. Our concern was fresh produce and keeping vegetables in our daily diet. Here are a few ways we’ve learned to stretch supplies during the coronavirus. Stretching Food Supplies During the Coronavirus is so important.
