Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #65! August is drawing to a close and it’s time to start making and decorating for fall. I love autumn and the Christmas season! Hopefully the coronavirus will diminish and we can all enjoy the holiday fun. Here’s what I made for fall last week:
I made a tassel necklace with scrap ribbon and dyed wooden beads. Although I don’t normally make jewelry, this was a fun project. I made my first Vimeo as well.
I planned to paint a Primitive version of a candy corn on my bucket, then decided midway through the project to paint a cartoonish trick-or-treater in a candy corn costume instead. However, I did paint her a Primitive pumpkin bucket to carry from door to door. My Hand Painted Candy Corn Bucket can be used to pass out candy or as a kindling holder for the fireplace.
The Little Cottage Link Party is open from Monday, 9am EST, through Thursday, 9am EST (I’m leaving the party open a day longer this year). My goal for this link party is to help myself and others thrive in the home. I’ve spent the last two decades raising five homeschooled children in a beautiful little cottage in the South Carolina Lowcountry. In my opinion, the home is the most important place on earth. It doesn’t matter if you’re married, single, empty-nesting, or raising a large family-your home can still be a refreshing oasis of love and beauty to those who enter.
Time for the Features!
Michelle’s Laurel Burch inspired cat necklace is divine. I have a collection of cat figurines that includes one made by Laurel. Michelle is an artsy girl who likes fashion and sells jewelry in her ETSY store. She also hosts a blog party of her own. You should drop by her blog if you have the time.
Niky’s Blueberry pies look so pretty. I’m inspired to go out and buy some mini pie dishes. I love it that she used my favorite pastry dough. It’s so easy to thaw it and roll it out.
I was never a fan of acrylic pour crafts UNTIL I saw Chas’s Ocean Serving Tray. It turned out very well and her project looks fun to make. I would love to do it with a class. Luckily, she included a how-to video in her post.
Katy did an amazing job transforming her inaccessible patio into a beautiful backyard garden with raised beds. We have an entire backyard with no door leading to it, so I will be hanging on to her ideas for next spring.
Lisa’s project is so perfect. It makes me want to go camping and buy a Jeep Grand Wagoneer with wood panels. Her painted plaid looks incredible.
Naush made a fun fall wreath from an egg carton. She is an Upcycle Artist and has all sorts of reimagined items on her blog. She also has a how-to video for this craft.
Bonus Halloween Feature
Well, I just HAD to include this gorgeous little ghost puppet in my features.
