Welcome Fall

If you’re new to essential oils and need more info, see more HERE.

No obligation to sell (it’s there if you want it, ignore it if you don’t). No obligation to ever buy again (but now you have access to wholesale prices for life if you do, ignore it if you don’t).

Halloween DreamCatcher Decor

Who here is a BIG fan of all things Halloween? ::raises hand:: We aren’t into super scary so I whipped up the cutest Halloween Dreamcatcher Decor to share with you today, my pretties! I’m so excited that the Michaels Maker Challenge for October has a Halloween decor theme! Purrrrfect! It’s cute. It’s colorful. It’s fun! 

Halloween DreamCatcher Decor Tutorial

DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels

Forget ‘dream’ catcher! With your creative magic, you just might wind up with a witch-catcher like I did. Look at what I snagged, you guys! This sweet little witch! Oh my goodness. Adorable! Er, frightful! 

Halloween witch dreamcatcher tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels

Okay, you’re right. The cupcake lure did the trick too. Treats. Gets ’em every time. But the witch-catcher dreamcatcher is pretty sweet if I do say so myself. This face…it’s the cutest!

Halloween witch dreamcatcher tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels

Ready to make one of your very own Halloween dreamcatchers? Ex-cell-ent!!! 

Halloween witch dreamcatcher tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels

(Note: I’d steer clear of making a spider-catcher! Ain’t nobody wants to catch spiders. Except bats. Bats like spiders. )

Halloween witch dreamcatcher tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels

What I used:

  • embroidery hoop
  • glitter tape (you could also just paint your hoop so insert ‘craft paint’ here in your supply list if you’re so inclined)
  • felt spider web placemat 
  • lots of coordinating ribbons – so many fun colors and Halloween themed ones too (look for lace trim too)!
  • embellishments – my list included small colorful glitter balls, witch feet/skirt headband, small raven, glitter floral/Halloween (maybe even tucked in with some Christmas) pics
  • hot glue gun and hot glue

DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels

*Michaels provided a gift card for supplies for this project, so in case you didn’t know, all supplies for this project were purchased at Michaels Craft Store. Obv. Seriously, do you spend hours in there finding all.the.crafty.treasures too?!  Michaels has everything you need to make your Halloween FUN! 

What I did:

(Psssst. The fun thing about DIY is you can alter it to fit your style/supplies…get creative and tweak this to come up with your own version. Creepy or Spooky. Fun and colorful or gory. You decide!)

  1. I used the inside piece of the embroidery hoop. I wrapped that with Duck Glitter Tape. You could also wrap it in ribbon or paint it or leave it naked. It’s up to you! DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels
  2. Next, I tied ribbons/twine/lace/trim/etc. along the bottom. I had to look it up but I used a lark’s head/cow hitch type knot to secure the ribbon to the wreath. Stagger the ribbon/trim lengths. I like the longest in the middle. Or make them all long at this point and trim them up later.  DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels
  3. Using hot glue, secure the spider web placemat to the hoop.  DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels
  4. Then add embellishments using hot glue too. I layered the floral pics above the knotted ribbon. I snapped off the headband from the witch’s skirt/legs. I added a raven to the back so that side was finished as well. Maybe add a few plastic spiders. I added some glittery balls.  DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels DIY Halloween witch dreamcatcher tutorial tea party @diyshowoff #madewithmichaels

Now go proudly display it and and enjoy trick or treat!

Shaw Floors // Floorté // Classico Plank • Antico {shown above}

Welcome, friends!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like fall! Let the decorating begin. Pumpkins and mums, rich warm colors and cozy sweaters. Love this time of year! Don’t you? 

Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff

I recently whipped up a festive dreamcatcher wreath for the door in the entryway (see the fall dreamcatcher wreath // door decor tutorial for more details).

I love decorating this entryway area where we installed Shaw’s durable and water resistant product called Floorte´. Style and color are Classico Plank // Antico and I love the rustic feel for this old farmhouse, don’t you? A beautiful mix of beige and grays. Very rustic. 

Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff

The perfect farmhouse vibe with a durable beautiful finish to it. Perfect for greeting friends, tracking in wet leaves. No worries! And best of all, it compliments our home’s style. So warm and welcoming!

Shaw Floors // Floorté // Classico • Antico

I also added a few fall touches to our living room to spice things up creating a cozy reading spot for curling up with a good book and mulled cider for those chilly autumn days. 

 

“October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came,— Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff The sunshine spread a carpet,
And every thing was grand;
Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band….
Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff  The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky….” ~George Cooper Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff

Finally, remember when I recently gave our dining room a color lover’s makeover and worried that the beautiful palette of blush, chartreuse, navy and grey would be short-lived because holiday decorating would be a challenge? Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff

I’m finding that the push to be creative with the specific color scheme is paying off and I love the results of a pink, cream, green and navy fall tablescape and decorative accents.   Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff

Non -traditional. Pretty.  Fall Home Tour Shaw Floors diyshowoff

DIY Fall DreamCatcher Door

Okay, DIY friends! I know it’s been a while. Life has been a little crazy so it feels like forever since I’ve had the time to do something DIY related myself but it’s beginning to get crafty over here! With Fall comes routine. Loving it! I’m kicking off autumn with this beautiful DIY fall dreamcatcher wreath (door or wall decor) tutorial! Here we go:

DIY Fall DreamCatcher Wreath Tutorial 

DIY fall dreamcatcher wreath door decor tutorial @diyshowoff

What I used for the DIY Fall DreamCatcher Wreath Tutorial: 

  • small hula hoop (check the clearance sections this time of year! I got mine at Michael’s Craft Store)
  • doily (affiliate link) to fit inside (a bit smaller than the hoop so that it can stretch to fit) 
  • string
  • assorted ribbons, lace trim, twine, decorate rope, etc. 
  • fall florals (separated using wire cutters) 
  • hot glue gun and glue

DIY fall autumn dreamcatcher door decor wreath @diyshowoff

DIY Fall DreamCatcher Wreath Tutorial // What I did: 

I tied string to the outermost scalloped edges of the doily.

DIY fall autumn dreamcatcher door decor wreath @diyshowoff DIY fall autumn dreamcatcher door decor wreath @diyshowoff

Then using hot glue, secured one end of the string to the hula hoop, one end to the next, careful to keep it centered and pulled tight. This just temporarily holds the string in place for the next step. 

DIY fall autumn dreamcatcher door decor wreath @diyshowoff DIY fall autumn dreamcatcher door decor wreath @diyshowoff DIY fall autumn dreamcatcher door decor wreath @diyshowoff

Next, I tied the doily to the hoop with knots all the way around. Trim ends

DIY fall autumn dreamcatcher door decor wreath @diyshowoff DIY fall autumn dreamcatcher door decor wreath @diyshowoff

I then covered the hula hoop using 4 inch wide ribbon, securing the beginning and end with hot glue.

Then cut different ribbons, lace trim, twine, etc. into desired lengths and add to the bottom of the dreamcatcher.

I had to look it up but I used a lark’s head/cow hitch type knot to secure the ribbon to the wreath.

Last step! I simply glued on some fall florals.

What’s your favorite color palette for Fall? Warm Fall colors – oranges, reds, golds are so pretty, aren’t they? I also love an autumn color scheme consisting of plum, dusty rose, burgundy and dark turquoise. ALL THE FALL THINGS available at Michaels!  I’ve done some of both in the past but this year, I’m embracing warms whites (creams) and metallics, specifically gold with an easy monogram pumpkin silhouette and coordinating decorative accents.

Framed 3 Dimensional DIY Pumpkin Wall Art

Helloooo, DIY lovers! I’m still hanging on to summer but there’s no mistaking that fall is in the air! My first official challenge for Michaels’ Makers is a DIY Pumpkin Challenge. Fun!

DIY craft pumpkin challenge @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

It’s nearly that time of year! Shorter days, chilly evenings. I love faux pumpkins or ‘funkins’ for fall DIY crafts and decor! This year Michaels has “half craft pumpkins”! The tutorial tag I saw in the store showed 3 vertically on ribbon with the letters “B – O – O”. How cute is that? But I decided some framed 3D wall art was in order! I always think floral arrangements in pumpkins are so pretty…works of art. So why not add a frame and make it 3D wall art?

3D framed DIY pumpkin wall art tutorial @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

Materials I used: (some affiliate links included)

3D framed DIY pumpkin wall art tutorial @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

Tools: wire cutters, hot glue gun, knife or box cutter

Project Time: Less than 1 hour. 

What I did:

1. With the box cutter, I cut the top off of my half craft pumpkin similar to the way I would cut the top of a whole pumpkin. 

3D framed DIY pumpkin wall art tutorial @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

2. Cut down the foam brick to fit inside of the craft pumpkin and secure with hot glue . This step may not be necessary but I think it makes the flower arranging easier and keeps the arrangement in place. Flowers can be swapped out for a different look.

3D framed DIY pumpkin wall art tutorial @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

3. Secure the half craft pumpkin to the the message board, centered inside of the frame with hot glue. I really think it’d work to attach it to a picture frame with backing (with glass or without) using hot glue too! If you give that option a try, let me know. I’d love to see it! Well, if you try this project at all, do share your creativity! I want to see! 

3D framed DIY pumpkin wall art tutorial @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

4. Using wire cutters, remove stems from floral bunches and arrange flowers inside of the half craft pumpkin, poking stems into the foam brick to secure. 

3D framed DIY pumpkin wall art tutorial @diyshowoff #michaelsmakers

5. Embellish pumpkin if you wish. I just added the push pins that came with my message board. Stuff in some Spanish moss, if you’re inclined to do so. It adds some texture.

The other accessories are from Michaels too! I really love the combination of blues, plums, creams and green for a fresh fall vignette but I think traditional colors with touches of metallic gold would be gorgeous too!

Attention, friends! Did you know that Young Living has grown 180% in the past year? Experience for yourself why that is. Read my story here. I was getting so desperate for something, anything. All it took was ‘trying’. And to learn that something natural, something so simple actually works…I’m shocked, stunned, thrilled and so relieved each and every time. Why hadn’t I heard of essential oils before? I wish I had known sooner. I want to make sure you are aware! Reach out with questions and I’ll pass along some info. (roeshel at gmail dot com).

Stay tuned! What I’ve been working on: getting a guest room/nursery ready for my first grandchild. It’s almost time for his arrival! TODAY I’m co-hosting a baby shower. Cute woodland themed baby shower details coming soon! And a fun faux jack-o-lantern project and Michaels #TrickYourPumpkin sweepstakes details.

DIY Halloween Witch Hat Candy Dish Decor

This easy DIY Halloween project for the Lowe’s Creative Ideas October challenge has a few uses so I wasn’t sure what to call it. It’s … versatile. 

Witch Hat Halloween Candy Dish

or add chips/pretzels to use as a Halloween serving tray.

or add festive cupcakes for Halloween party display.

or add succulents, small fall flowers/plants to create a Halloween planter.

or a floral arrangement (just pop on a fall wreath) for Halloween decor.

or simply flip the bottom to use as a Halloween Centerpiece

Materials:

EASY tutorial:

1. Using a kitchen knife, we cut out a hole using the inner circle shown on the bottom of the large plastic plant saucer as guide.

2. Spray paint cone and saucer black. I did two coats on the cone, one coat on the already black plant saucer. Let dry.

That’s it! 

Carefully slide onto the cone. Right side up creates a ‘dish’.

Upside down creates a ‘ledge’. Add an old belt for a decorative touch.

More ideas: attach faux fall flowers, leaves, spiders, etc. to create a Halloween centerpiece. Hide a vase filled with water under the cone and fill with tall flowers. Add succulents and display outside. Get creative!
