Fall Crafts!

Two of my favorite emails this week came from Martha. One was a craft for a fall garland and the other for the quintessential glittered pumpkins. I know some of you have made your own glittered pumpkins before with great success!

The garland seems pretty easy to make (the close-up photo helps):

"Create a seasonal garland to drape around the doorway using multicolored decorative dried corn.

Space cobs 6 to 8 inches apart on a length of raffia (available at crafts stores), tying it around each piece where the husk meets the kernels.

The cobs will hang vertically; if you'd like them to be horizontal (as shown in the center of garland), tie the tip of each cob to the husk of the next using floral wire."

Here is the link for the glittered pumpkins. I know other people have featured this craft on their blog before so I decide to show the garland in more detail. The pumpkins are adorable though and I'm def. going to consider making those!

I did the glitter pumpkins last year in gold. I love them! I got fake pumpkins from Michael's.

I am so not crafty, but those pumpkins might be something even I could tackle.
