I bought this shoe holder to use as some handy storage space for my craft room!

Ooooh! I am SO loving this fall season! Pumpkins are just great! I saw something similar to this in a super expensive shop.... I just thought Hey?! Georgina could easily make those for 99p! So that she did, Ha! That pumpkin was 99p.... I already have a pack of 100 tealights which were only £2.99. So, yeah! Did well for myself here. I love the way it looks. Naw! Just carve out a circle in the top of your pumpkin that is just the same size as the base of your tealight... and it will slot in nicely!
I have a load of felt balls hanging around in my craft room that I got from ages ago. Time to make something for Fall out of them me thinks!
You will need:
Felt balls or make your own (http://paintedthreadsprojects.blogspot.com/2008/10/making-felted-balls.html)
1. This is where some little children would come in very handy! Go find lots and lots of acorns. Take the green plant thingy out of the shell.
2.Glue gun the ball into the acorn heads. Some will fit just so, which is really handy!
3. Make lots and lots of them! You could put them in a jam jar, you could put them in a bowl, you could display them one by one on a shelf.... the possibilities are endless! Ha!

Pumpkins are sooo cute!!! I haven't really ever decorate my house for fall before *gasp* but you will let me off because it's only my second fall whilst actually having my own home to decorate. I thought it was just christmas decor *even deeper gasp*. Soooo seeming as everyone else seems to have gone fall crazy and their ideas are just so cute... I had to have a go. I love Autumn alot, I love the colours, I love the weather, I love the leaves, I love the scarves... ooooh I just love it! So here are my lil pumpkins!
You will need:
Stuffing of some kind (i used balls of fabric for some and cotton wool for others)
Needle and Thread (dont worry not too much sewing involved)
Two Rubber bands or hair ties!
1. Fold your fabric together, right side in, and sew closed as neat or as scruffy as you like. There. That's all you need your needle and thread for!
2. Place stick inside top opening and seal with a rubber band. Most of your stick should be inside the fabric as this will be the stem.
3.Turn this inside out and fill with stuffing. Be sure to stuff it up at the top to make it a nice shape.
4. Once you are happy with the shape secure it with the other band and chop off the excess fabric. Then push the little stub into the fabric so it sits nicely on a flat surface!
How easy was that... yup I went a little mad and made loads. Also made that little decor at the back it says Fall on the bunting!
