Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

This project, my friends, was driven entirely by my obsession with one of Funky Junk Interiors’ most recent stencils. She created a Buffalo check stencil for her Old Sign Stencil Shop (affiliate link) and I have been dying to try it out. I decided to create some Buffalo check decor on a wood tray from the thrift store using her stencil. I thought it would be lovely as rustic cabin decor to use for my autumn decorating!Read more ›

Alcohol Ink Paint on Glass Pumpkins for Fall Decor

Alcohol Ink Paint on Glass Pumpkins for Fall Decor

Every now and then, I choose to work on a project based on a crafting technique, as opposed to a really unique upcycling idea. And this, my friends, is one of those projects! You see, I’d been looking for a way to try out alcohol ink or alcohol paint for a long time. And I decided that trying out alcohol ink paint on glass pumpkins (or other round glass) might result in some gorgeous fall decor.Read more ›

Tablecloth Weights / Tablecloth Clips from Horse Brass

Tablecloth Weights / Tablecloth Clips from Horse Brass

I don’t exactly know why, but when I think of anything horse-related, I imagine it in an autumn setting. I can’t really explain why this is, and maybe it makes no sense…but when I think of horses, I think of plaid blankets, leather accessories, and crisp Fall air.

Painted Gourds from Glass Liquor Bottles as Fall Decor

After our junkin’ journey trip to Louisville, we came home with several interesting bottles of bourbon. And normally, that wouldn’t be a big deal…but as you may recall, we can no longer recycle glass in our county. So, I’m once again tasked with coming up with ways to recycle glass into projects. And this time, I decided to transform them into painted gourds to use as Fall decor.

Plaid Ribbon from an Upcycled Shirt for a Harvest Wreath

Plaid Ribbon from an Upcycled Shirt for a Harvest Wreath

When you can’t find the craft product you need (or are dreaming of), you sometimes have to make your own. And that’s what happened when I was working on an harvest wreath and I couldn’t find any plaid ribbon. So, I started to mull over the idea of making my own wired ribbon with an upcycled shirt.Read more ›

Fall Table Runner with Flannel Shirts and Lace Ribbon

Fall Table Runner with Flannel Shirts and Lace Ribbon

Back in early Spring when I created my Dyed Doily Table Runner, I was already envisioning an autumn version- with doilies dyed to look like chrysanthemums. AND, I even bought some vintage doilies that had orange and gold hues for the Fall table runner. I was *convinced* that that was the plan. But as time marched on, I started envisioning a cozier version – one that used flannel shirts and lace ribbon.Read more ›

Wooden Keepsake Box and DIY Wood Pumpkin from Salad Bowls

Wooden Keepsake Box and DIY Wood Pumpkin from Salad Bowls

Somewhere in my Pinterest meanderings, I stumbled across a wooden keepsake box that had been made by upcycling a pair of round bowls and painted to look like Earth. I knew I wanted to do something similar to create a DIY Wood Pumpkin, but I just needed the right set of wooden salad bowls. And then, there they were, staring me in the face from the Goodwill shelf.Read more ›
