Total Reindeer Cuteness

I saw this and thought "oh, how clever!" .... then I thought... hmmmm.... how does one get that shell to lay so perfectly flat on the paper?  So, the only thing that comes to my mind is X-Acto knife!   I remember one year cutting pine branches with an X-Acto knife and nearly cut my finger off!   Careful people, this looks like a dangerous with total cuteness craft ;).  BUT,  I am sooooo going to do this... wish me luck!  Instead of break a leg, keep a finger...

Seasonal Birch & Pine Arrangment

I'm loving this trendy birch accent arrangement with the berries, pine cones, magnolia leaves and assorted pine decor!  The black pot is a nice simple statement as well.  A perfect way to accent the entrance of the home for the holidays!

I'm not bored out of my gourd!

.... just 'crushin on these adorable gourd candles for the perfect fall ambiance decor.  'Luvin it!  For the clean cut, simply take your t-light that you are going to use and trace around the perimeter on top where the candle will sit & then carve down as deep as the candle!  You'll need those fine tooth carving tools that you see around halloween in order to get percision.  And if you are with power tools and have the correct size as the diameter of the candle, you could use a drill bit accompanied by protective gourd gut splattering gear to accomplish this desired result as well (always keep a good eye on the fingies to avoid accidents when using power tools and small items like these!).

White Pumpkins

So, I've been seeing a lot of white pumpkins the last five years or so and this year I'm in love. White pumpkins have become extremely popular as an alternative to the traditional bright orange pumpkins, and I noticed this year when I went to the pumpkin farm there are a lot of interesting variations for colors, variegation and such.  Many people have begun carving these beautiful objects to resemble pierced creamware china.  These pieces of work sure are beautiful and I love the detailing of black paint on a white pumpkin.  This year for Halloween, I got my power drill out and went to town on my pumpkins for a different look.  I suggest you wear some protective gear when doing this type of project as pumpkin guts were flying everywhere!
