Some Final Fall Crafts....

 Here are a few of my final Fall craft projects.....a wreath.

I was really digging these "pinwheel" shapes I made for the banner, so I made some more for the wreath. Plus the letters in the middle spell "Welcome".


Got all of the candy loaded on to our countdown to Halloween using double sided tape. That stuff works GREAT!!!!

And finally, inspired by my good friend Kristy, over at The No-No Room, got my Fall To-Do List ready. I made little pumpkins out of the marble glass pieces I had left over from another project. I got the cookie sheet at Goodwill for $2, new. It was actually a really cheap project because I already had all the scraps of papers left from my banner. I had black paper on hand and used my Cricut to cut the letters. Oh and did you know...Big Lots carries Cricut cartridges. There up at the front, locked up. Not a wide selection but they had one I had been looking for. Only $25 compared to a regular price of $80.


The only thing I bought for this, that I didn't have on hand was the black enamel I used on the pumpkins. I tried using Stickles but it didn't look as good. The black enamel looked like the same packaging as Stickles, but it's more solid and less transparent.

That's an adorable wreath, great texture and great color! Also liking your to do list, I write them, but then I can't find what I do with them, so then I write another and so on. this might solve that problem! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!
