FALL FOR ALL – DIY Fall Festival #6


The last Fall Festival party post featured Fall Mantels and it was Fall Wreaths before that.  This week…it’s a FALL FOR ALL!  Here are some fun and easy DIY ideas submitted by readers.  So creative!  Then check out the links here and on past posts for DIY Fall heaven.   If you’re like me, you’ll be inspired to DIY and decorate, throw on a sweater, be warmed by a pumpkin spiced chai tea and enjoy your autumn decorated home.  Click the links for more details/tutorials.

I usually post this Thursday night but it’s so fall like here, I’m a little early today.  I have fall fever! And I scheduled it to post tomorrow morning – but for some reason “OOPS” – it posted asap.  So what is usually scheduled to post tomorrow evening for Friday is 24 hours early.  Oh well!  It’s fall, let’s celebrate!

 Pumpkin Topiary tutorial at Our SouthernNest:

Jennifer from the Perillo Four made this pretty fall wreath (inspired by my burlap/fabric wreath!). Great job, Jennifer!
Sharon at Keen Inspirations made one too – I love how she framed it.
And Ashley from A Forty Year Old Ranch did one too – a great example how using different fabrics can make a unique look.

Let’s see! Show off your Fall projects!

  • Create a blog post about an Autumn/Fall project that you’ve done
  • Add your project title to Mcklinky (example: House # Pumpkins)
  • Type in the permalink address, not your basic blog address. A permalink is the address that links directly to your specific post. (example: http://thediyshowoff.blogspot.com/2009/08/house-number-pumpkins)
  • Please use the DIY button or link to this post to share the party with your readers.
  • Although a tutorial is helpful, it’s not required. Anything DIY – autumn related is permitted.
  • Please follow all steps above or your link will be deleted.  If you notice that you’re link disappeared, please make the correction according to the rules above and re-link!
  • Enjoy and be inspired!
