I would not call myself a "crafting" type of person. I like to make stuff for myself sometimes but not all the time. Generally, I just don't have the time, the space or the patience. But every once in a while I get in the mood and spend the whole day churning out a bunch of project.
And I have to admit this is a Pinterest-fueled post. I saw a bunch of cute ideas on there, ran to Michael's and bought a whole ton of stuff to make.
I started off easy with a fun centerpiece. I love that I can switch out the contents each month - chestnuts in November, cranberries in December, etc.
I've had this piece of black coral since I was a kid. It became a necklace for my neighbor.
And this necklace went to the little girl across the street.
1 embroidery hoop and 40 yards of black tulle later and I have my new favorite wreath for Halloween.
I actually did 3 other projects too (11 in all!) if you can believe it but those are going to have to come in a separate post. I was exhausted by Sunday night!
