I feel a little bit like a broken record over here, but there’s nothing that gives me more pleasure than making a craft project out of something you pull off a shelf in your house. Even better if you think that craft project is moderately chic or upscale! May I introduce my latest simple seasonal craft project: a watercolor leaf wreath (say that 10 times fast).
Fall is always a challenge for me decorating-wise. I LOVE the colors and scents and textures going on outside, but none of those things work so well for me INSIDE. Our home doesn’t have any rusts or reds or yellows, so this year… I decided to make fall decorating work for ME! Bring on the colorful embellished pumpkins!
I used to knit. A lot. Every day of college (and even high school sometimes) I’d plop down in front of Days of Our Lives and get my knit on. I haven’t knit in a while. I tell myself I’m going to knit, and get suckered into a pattern or the beautiful textures of the yarn and I buy ALL OF THE THINGS. I sit down and count out the stitches and knit the first 4 or 5 inches and then… it ends up in the knitting graveyard. These sweet little bits of fall are one way I’ve found to actually *use* some of that lonely yarn.
