DIY craft...Halloween Wreath

This is a super easy craft I wanted to share in case you have some spare time on your hands.  Here is what you need:

(2) Yards of black or orange tulle
(1) Embroidery hoop (I think mine is 9 inch)
(1-2) Yards of black or orange ribbon
Scissors or rotary cutter

Cut your tulle in 3inch foot long strips.  I folded the tulle and then cut it into strips.
Then just start tying!  Super easy to do while your watching a movie or your favorite TV show. 
If you get enough ribbon you can just loop it and hang on your door.  I tied a bow and then glued it on.  I also had a glitter boo, I looped onto the bow.

I think it took me maybe an hour and look how cute.

Happy Crafting!

Craft Night ..Fabric for the pumpkins

We have craft night coming up on Friday September 23rd.  Come anytime after 6:00p.  Some people like to come early and some a little later, does not matter, we will be here crafting the night away!

Just wanted to post the fabric I got for those of you wanting to make the fabric pumpkins.  Bring any embellishments you may want, buttons, dollies, raffia??? 
If you have your own fabric, just drop it off to me ahead of time, so I can cut and sew it to get you started. 

Orange Crinkle and Fall Leaves

This is dark brown (not black)

Orange Pinstripe
Each of you will get to make 3 pumpkins, but if there is extra (probably will be) then you can make more for $3 each.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanksgiving ideas and Super Saturday...

Next month we have something call Super Saturday in our Church.  It is a day that the women of our church get together and craft!!!  I think it is one of my favorite days during the year.  It is Saturday, October 15th from 9am to 1pm.  Lunch is included.  The crafts that we are doing will be posted here soon. If you are interested in coming, please let me know soon.  I think the deadline is October 1st.

So I am in search of some super cute Thanksgiving and Christmas crafts.  I am thinking our craft night next month will be around October 21st if that works for everyone.
This is a project I just found (from Maria over at You Craft Me Up) and am absolutely in love with it.  But maybe it is just me?

Porch Pumpkins $TBD
Is it too Halloweeny? 
I also found this Garland, it could be done as a wreath as well. 

Thanksgiving Garland $TBD
I love this Burlap Banner.  This one is suppose to say Happy Halloween.  But we could do a Give Thanks or Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Banner $TBD

And I just found these super cute kits from the Wood Connection.

Turkey Door Hanger (or can put on a block) $TBD

Pilgrims $TBD

Cast your votes now...or send me some ideas!

Bye for now,
