Celebrating Autumn Festival {Fall Crafts & Decor Link-up}

I’m so excited to be participating in Celebrating Autumn: A Festival Of Home with four other awesome bloggers.  There will be crafts, food and decor galore!

Today I’m kicking off the week with a fun Fall craft, giveaway and link-up!  Here is the schedule for the rest of the week:

Homemade Fall Leaf Banner


Isn’t it adorable?!

This craft is both kid-friendly and Fall decor-friendly.  I remember doing a similar project at day camp when I was a very little girl.  Ridley “helped”  me with this banner craft as much as an almost 2 year old can.  Ha!  We enjoy looking at it every day.

Click to read the entire Homemade Fall Leaf Banner tutorial!

To sweeten the Celebrating Autumn Festival even more, I have a wonderful giveaway for you from I Shoot Nouns! I Shoot Nouns is a fabulous Etsy shop run by a photo-graphics artist named Gretchin.  I {heart} her creativity!

“Autumn is the second Spring when every leaf is a flower.”

Thanksgiving place cards {love}

Gretchin has kindly agreed to give away a $20 gift certificate to I Shoot Nouns!   I’m only slightly jealous of whomever the winner will be!  :)

  20. I’m really excited about the Fall decor ideas that you’ll share this week. My goal today is to try making the wreath that you showed a couple of weeks ago (the one on your front door). I don’t expect mine to have the same great outcome but I sure am going to try. The vegetable cans are really a unusual addition. I’ve told my mom and sisters all about it. :) Thanks for the ideas.

  21. I adore genealogy-art picture (maiden name is Johnson), but I honestly have thought of something similar for a tattoo! Love Love!
