Cake Dome for Fall Party Decor

Cake Dome for Fall Party Decor

Even though I am busy-busy-busy working on projects for my book, I couldn’t let the season go by without making at least one pumpkin project! And for this one, I went “garage shopping”, and came across this set of wooden bowls. I set aside the smaller ones for my book, and decided that the large wooden bowl might be perfect as a cake dome (and pumpkin centerpiece).Read more ›

Acorn Decorations from Tweed Jackets

Acorn Decorations from Tweed Jackets

While putting together a collection of Upcycled Fall Decor projects for a blog post, I ran across this oversized acorn decor project that I just fell in love with. It’s not my originally idea (important for me to point out), BUT I wanted to create my own version of acorn decorations. Of course, not just any fabric would do, though. I wanted to make them with a tweed sport coat.Read more ›

Pumpkin Patch Sign from a Wooden Paper Plate Holder

Pumpkin Patch Sign from a Wooden Paper Plate Holder

I’ll be honest with you- a wooden paper plate holder was not something I grew up with. Paper plates, yes, but designated wooden holders for them? Nope, not at all. There wasn’t much primitive country decor in my childhood home, so that’s probably why. Fast forward to my days as an upcycling blogger, though, and I couldn’t snap this one up fast enough! Because I had an upcycling idea to transform it into a pumpkin patch sign for Fall.Read more ›

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

Alcohol Ink Paint on Glass Pumpkins

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 ›

Liquor Bottle Painting for Fall Pumpkin Decor

Liquor Bottle Painting for Fall Pumpkin 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 do some liquor bottle painting and transform them into Fall pumpkin decor.

Wooden Coaster Set with Wool Tweed Fabric

Salvaged wood is something I love to work with when I find the right piece. I haven’t made loads of projects with it, simply because I tend to create smaller projects. But, I had an idea in my my mind for a wooden coaster set. I just needed to find the right salvaged wood to repurpose.Read more ›
