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.

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.”

    I love the banner idea! How fun that would be to do with my kids! I also adore the beautiful etsy giveaway:)

    I am having a hard time deciding between ordering a bunch of the Thanksgiving Day Place Cards (we do a “Thankful For” Garland of sticky notes in our entry way every year and I could use these for that!) or the Life Choices print – LOVE that!

  3. Colleen says

    I love the leaf banner – thanks for the ideas! Looking forward to the rest of the week.

  4. Joanna says

    I would get either the fall . . . Spring . . . Flowers print OR one of the little girl silhouettes for my niece. Choices choices! :)

  5. Jessica K. says

    Wow–Another amazing Etsy shop-I’m starting to get ideas for Christmas gifts already!! On the small chance that I would actually win, I would get the Choices in Life Poetic Print, and probably a lot of other items too :)

  6. Monica says

    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.

  7. Erin says

    It would be a tough decision. I would probably choose the child’s personalized name picture. Thanks for another chance!

  8. diana beach girl says

    I <3 this blog ~ thx for giveaway ….. luv luv luv the wine print! Such talent that chickeeee has!

  9. Amy says

    I’m so glad I recently found your blog! Please keep all those crafty and decorative ideas coming!

  10. Marnie Petty says

    Autumn is my favorite season! I miss leaving up north and seeing the leaves change. Thanks for all the great ideas so I can still see the leaves change “inside”.

  11. says

    I’m new to your site but have been inspired to decorate so I can get in the fall mood. I love to be outside during the cool weather, and I need to bring some of that freshness inside.

    • Myra says

      Welcome Jennifer! Yay! :) I love bringing the outdoors in with open windows, sticks, acorns, rocks and leaves. :)

  12. Jessica says

    I like the personalized family tree :) It’s what’s great about Etsy, always someone new to discover!

  13. Paula says

    If I win, I’d probably put it towards 2 of the Personalized Child Silhouettes for my 2 little girls’ room! Thanks!

  14. Jen says

    I would love to win! This is a great contest, and I am really glad to learn about this website. I had never heard of it before.

  15. Jen says

    I would love to win. After visiting the site, I love the family personalized silhouettes. They are just the thing I need to finish decorating a room.

  16. Allison says

    I must say the personalized family prints are so adorable, but also like the give thanks print. What amazing talent!!

  17. Katie says

    I would without a doubt get the child’s name & silhouette. That would look so cute in my older daughter’s room. Very cute stuff.

  18. says

    So cute! I would pick the personalized note cards. I also posted on your Autumn festival link even though it is Halloween. :)

  19. says

    Thanks for the fun ideas- and What a CUTE Etsy shop! I’d love to win, but even if I don’t, you’ve inspired me to get busy with my kids and have fun with autumn decorating. Enjoy the season!

    I like either the Drink a Latte or I’d have a birth announcement made for my 5yo- the only one without a sampler that has been crosstitched.


  21. says

    Boy do I wish my son was small enough to do a banner with me…he’s 20 now :) Maybe if I bribe him….thank you for the idea…I love it!

    Thank you for the give-away contest too…I love her designs! I would absolutely get the ‘Fall is the Second Spring…’ print!

  22. Heather says

    So I had to check out I Shoot Nouns, entirely because of the catchy name! I would love to have one of the ‘Keep Calm Drink a Latte’ pieces, how adorable!

  23. Crissy says

    What an awesome website! This is my first visit and you have some very nice ideas! Thanks for allowing the opportunity to enter the contest!

  24. says

    Cute banner! I’m a little late for the party, but I finally got a post up that I could link up! Yay! Thanks for hosting!

  25. says

    I would buy the Fall Pumpkin Illustration Print . We have a farm and pumpkin patch, so that would be perfect!
