2 Simple Saturday Crafts

If you are like me, or you just like to have a little project on the back burner,
I have two Simple Saturday Crafts to share today. 
Simple materials, inexpensive and easy peasy.



I made these decoupage pumpkins a couple of years ago, and they were super easy 
and fun.
You know you can use all types of materials, book pages, music pages, wrapping paper, let your imagination be your guide.
Here is the link to the post if you would like an overview, Decoupage Pumpkins.






































How creative is this paper plate holder all decorated up for Fall and looking like a cute, cute pumpkin.
I pinned this to my Pumpkins And Such Pinterest Board, where you will find 396 pins devoted to pumpkins and such-who-hoo!
Just click on this LINK for the tutorial on how to make this adorable and easy peasy project.






I had the best time this past week joining in with 27 Bloggers for the 2015 Fall Tour.
I enjoyed the inspiration from each of these ladies and the genuine fellowship that bloggers are synonymous with. 
Wanted to say thank you to Brenda, for her organization and kindness.

In fact, I saw this on Facebook this morning, and wanted to share it, because it sums the week up so very well.



                                                                 

Enjoy your weekend my dears!

xoxo

  1. Those are so cute Jemma....I will never look at a paper plate holder the same way again, lol.

    I wonder if the pumpkins around here are going to hang on long enough for Halloween.

    1. Hi Jen!
      Lol, crazy fun crafts anyway-the role of the pumpkin has changed:)
      Oh goodness, I bet you are due to have a frost any day now?? We have the opposite problem here-our pumpkins mold because of heat and humidity.

  2. Very cute crafts!! I love that quote from Facebook. It is so true with all the lovely ladies I follow. It is an uplifting, wonderful place to be with other women. There is no room for jealousy in the blog world!

      I just love to have a fun and simple craft to turn to during this time of the year.
      It's true, isn't it? As women bloggers we need to really support one another, makes the world such a sweeter place:)

  5. I guess my comment didn't go on properly - love the decoupage pumpkins and am sending the site to myself to check it out better. Ordered four bars of soap! Thanks.

    1. One can never go wrong with decoupage and there are so many creative possibilities.
      Oh good-I bought myself 2 bars of that wonderful soap today, even splurged and went with a Lavender scent.

  6. I remember that post on the decoupage pumpkins because my grand daughter and I tried it and had so much fun. In fact, I need to find out if she still has them....The paper plate holder is very cute and would be ideal for a child to make.

    1. Nancy,
      I remember you mentioning that you were going to do this craft with your granddaughter, I am glad that you did! I always like to have a few fun crafts up my sleeve for when the youngsters drop by.

  7. Oh dear, dear Jemma.....that BLUE pumpkin is fantastic! I LOVE IT! And this is the time to play with easy creations, isn't it? I spent a little time yesterday in our perfect weather, redoing the front yard with some décor. But what strikes me is this: here I was blogging for seven beautiful years, and now that I'm out, I so wish I was back in just to "play" with you. But, IG was a blast, continues to be though I'm not participating as much, but I will hope that when summer comes around again, we can see one another more frequently. Like blogging, IG has brought us together, and I hope that somehow, our creativity can meet.

    LOVE THAT BLUE PUMPKIN! XOXOXOXO

      Oh how much enjoyment you must have received yesterday as you worked about outside. I just bet your weather has the feel of Fall in the air. I wish you were available to post your lovely photos on IG. We did have an enjoyable Summer together didn't we? Loved your trip to Carmel.

  12. I did a version of decoupaging pumpkins last year (and glazing them, too! That was fun!). And the straw is so cheery! I'm beginning to get into my fall groove now. Thanks for the inspiration.
