Fall Into Craftastic Monday

I love Fall, but with school, holidays and birthdays it goes by too darn fast, so I usually miss my window for doing seasonal crafts this time of year.  Got to be a good mom before being a good crafter!  So, please throw me a lifeline and show more of your Fall or Halloween themed projects, recipes, creations, decor, etc. so everyone can get some inspiration and I'll be sure to include at least one as an extra "bonus" themed featured item each week.

To kick off the new Fall/Halloween feature of the week, I've selected two projects that have similar styles but totally different ways to make them, so there's a little something for everyone's crafting arsenal.

Cute As A Fox's Mason Jar Ghosts made with jars & etching cream:

And Life In Rehab's Glass Shade Lanterns from chandelier shades & frosted glass spray paint:

Both super cute & easy to make.  LOVE it!!

And here are some other fun things that caught my eye last week:

Look at this cute elephant softie by Pins & Pens.  There's even a free downloadable pattern so you can make one of your own!

Ami at AliLilly had the great idea to make this beautiful flower art out of her daughter's baby blankets.  So cute and a great keepsake:

And because it's never to early to start thinking about all the holidays coming up, check out this great tutorial from Kiwi At Heart for making these winter yo-yo trees:

Now I want to see what you have got for us!  If you've created something fun (sewing, baking, decorating, papercraft or anything else crafty), link on up! The rules are simple:

  • As long as it's crafty and made by you it's Craftastic. Just add the link to your specific post (not the main page of your blog).
  • Include the name of your Craftastic creation, your blog name & a pic of your project.
  • Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog to share the party with everyone.  Please put a link to the party or to your linky page IN your post.
  • Check out some of the other great links and share some crafty comment love.

This party is for sharing your own fun craft ideas & homemade projects (not promoting products), so please no giveaways, linking up another party, Etsy shops or online stores.

I leave the party open until 12pm EST Thursday. As usual, at the end of the week I'll be featuring some of my favorite links, so please remember to add the Craftastic party button to your post or blog so I can consider featuring your project:
