    Making Sweater Poof Ottoman

    For me, I just can't get enough sweaters this time of year. I'm very hot blooded, so I tend to get thinner sweaters that I can wear over a blouse if I choose. However, come January and February, I like the thick comfy sweaters that I can wear just by themselves on most days.

    Solely for your taking. Learn how easy it is to make one of these Poof Ottomans for your home.

    Making Sweater Balls

    I'm sure you've seen Christmas ornaments made like this, but have you ever thought about just having SWEATER BALLS, or how I like to call them SWEATER ORBS? I just got this idea and wanted to share it with you. It's essentially the same way you'd make Christmas ornaments, without the hangars.

    These adorable little crows are one of my favorite Halloween decor this year. Now I haven't made any yet because I haven't taken out my Halloween decor yet - next week I'll be taking it out and I know I have crows from last year so guess what? I'll be making these little cutties.

    Pine Cone Candle Holder

    I love - love - love collecting pine cones this time of year. I arm myself with several shopping bags and head out to a wooded area next to one of my favorite cemeteries. Usually my boyfriend will come with me and we just enjoy being outdoors, smelling the crisp air while we collect our little treasures.

    Here's a pinecone candle holder that I made this year and so - so anxious to share how I made it with you.
