My Pinterest Fall Projects

So I finally did some projects especially for the fall.  Take a look!  I have included a link to each of the blogs I got the ideas from.

Masterpieces- I made the boards and cut the vinyl letters out with a Cricut machine.  I fell in love with the Cricut machine!  The boards took a few hours just because of drying time.

Halloween Banner- Lots of work but cute.  It is in my front window so I couldn't get the best picture.

Prayer Pail- This is my pail that we use at night.  Each stick has a prayer request or family name and we pray for one or two sticks each night.

Tulle Fall Wreath- This was fun to do! 
This is what I used for the wreath tube part.  http://www.thepennyparlor.com/2010/09/coffee-filter-wreath.html

Organizing Freezer

I finally conquered the freezer.  I spent about 10 minutes organizing my freezer with these baskets from Dollar Tree.  I have the following baskets:
  • Frozen Fruit
  • Frozen Veggies
  • Frozen Vegetarian "meatless" products
  • Meats
  • Breakfast Foods
I may get another one for popsicles but I don't want to use up all the space in my freezer.

This simple organizing has made getting into the freezer so much easier.

Here is the link I got the idea from: http://www.bhg.com/kitchen/storage/organization/ways-to-store-more-in-your-kitchen/?page=7

Fall Decorations

On Pinterest I came across this fun, simple idea for Halloween/Fall.  I was excited to do it.

The first vase has candy corn and a candle.  The second has fake pumpkins with a bow.
I bought the vases at Michael's on clearance for $2.99 and the pumpkins were in small packages for $1.49 each.  The candy corn was $1 per bag at the Dollar Store.  I had the ribbon and candle.  I love the size of the vases - not to small and not to big just perfect for my table.  I really love them.

Here is a link where I got the idea: http://yourdecoratinghotline.com/quick-halloween-decor/

Fall Subway Art Printable

I was on Pinterest and found this cute sign.  I printed it and then bought this frame at Michael's for $6.99.  I love it because I can use it for different seasons too!

Here is the link so you can print one too: http://vintagemarigold.blogspot.com/2011/09/fall-subway-art.html

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

In my hours of searching on Pinterest I came across this picture...
I said to myself...I HAVE TO MAKE THESE!  On Sunday it was my turn to take a treat for church and thought this is perfect.  I always make chocolate covered pretzels and people love them.  So I thought who wouldn't love these.  They went SO fast because they were delicious.  I made them on Sunday morning before church because I was too lazy on Saturday but good thing I waited or else I would have been in trouble.

Check out the blog where I found them!

Simple Organizing Tip: Magazine Holder

I found this idea on Pinterest from a blog http://www.chicaandjo.com/.

I thought it was a great idea for organizing- aluminum foil, press-n-seal, baggies...I didn't use a scrapbooking size I just bought a magazine holder from Target.  Cute and red for $3 on Clearance.  I have it on top of my frig and it is so cute!
