Make a colorful DIY fall leaf wreath with pre-cut felt leaves!

Are you like me and live in a part of the country that doesn't get to enjoy the changing color of the leaves at this time of year? Well, here's a way you can bring all those those beautiful red, orange, and yellow leaves to your front door with a simple DIY fall leaf wreath! Made from pre-cut felt leaves from Oriental Trading, this wreath gave me just the dose of fall I needed. Check out how it looks in our living room along with the fall leaf pumpkins I shared last week!

DIY Fall Leaf Pumpkins

Alright, who's ready to get your fall crafting on? I have been crafting for fall (and Halloween!) for the past two months already, so I'm so excited to share with you what I've been up to! I thought the official first day of fall would be the perfect time to kick things off, starting with these colorful fall leaf pumpkins I made for Oriental Trading!

This was a really simple and fun project using faux craft pumpkins, tissue paper leaves, and Mod Podge. They look fancy, but they couldn't have been easier to make. Read on to see how they look displayed on our living room mantel!

5 Tips for Encouraging After School Creativity

Now that we're a month into school, we've settled into a pretty good routine but I do miss the summer days when Stella and Hazel had more time to play and be creative. Now they're more apt to sit in front of the TV than want to head to their playroom after a long day of school, and it's really still too hot here in San Antonio to enjoy playing outside. I've been thinking of simple ways to incorporate a little creative time during the short hours between getting home from school and getting ready for bed.

Last week we had the opportunity to try out Bunchems Alive for the first time. It's a product Stella and Hazel have oohed and aahed over ever since they saw them advertised on TV! Well, they weren't disappointed once they got to try out Bunchems firsthand. Read on to see how we shook up our usual after-school routine with some creative "making" and the 5 things I'm starting to do at home to encourage after-school creativity!
