Home-Made Autumn

I've found a little time to do some crafting these past few weeks.  I made these with supplies I already had on hand.  Take a look!

These aren't really fall decorations, but they are fall-inspired.  Daughter's birthday is soon, and she will need thank-you cards, so I got out a few stamps, her favorite yellow card stock and made some notes she can use to write her thank-yous.

I used a rainbow stamp pad in autumn colors, so these were really quick and easy to stamp and put together.  I like them!

A couple of weeks ago, Daughter and I did some painting together.  I had these wood forms in a drawer - I had gotten them on super-duper clearance one year (I think at Valentine's day, hee hee) for a quarter each.  We had the same form, but different ideas for them.

I love them both!  Finally, I have these two pillows that live on our couch.  I don't want to buy seasonal pillows, so I made pillow covers for them.  On the back, there is an opening - you just slip the pillow inside and then flip the flap (like most any removable pillow cover).  I had all the fabric on hand, as well as the fusible webbing and applique thread (thanks, Mom!).  I printed some templates from the internet and then whipped these up!  They are not exactly what I thought I was going to do when I started (I was going to have all the leaves clustered in the center, but it was too busy and a bit confusing), but I am happy with how they turned out.

So, those are our home-made autumn decorations.  Do you sew, paint, craft?  What have you been making lately?


  1. Wow, I'm so impressed with all these - fun and beautiful. Thanks for the ideas!

  2. Love /love your fall decorations.. The pillows are beautiful and so are the wall hangings.

    and I love the thankyou cards.. How wonderful you are teaching your daughter to do thank you cards.. Such things, you dont see much these days.

    Have a great day.. Judy

  3. Love it all. You definitely have artistic abilities. The painting is great. Love your daughter's too.
