it's fall. and if you've read last weeks post, you'll know i have a little extra time on my hands. what to do? FALL CRAFTS, of course. here are my results from a very DIY past few days.
look! i made roses using autumn leaves. you just fold in the points and keep wrapping the leaves around one another. i'm not sure they look terrific (naturally they came out better on the blog i saw this craft, but they look good enough)
prepare to be underwhelmed. it gets a lot less crafty from here on out.
i hacked back my outdoor planters and put together this bouquet. it's eucalyptus (cool right? i actually grew eucalyptus in my garden this year), the cattails from ornamental grasses, and some kind of dried something that we cut back at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens a few weeks back.
see how much i learn from my volunteering experiences? some kind of dried something. Laura, the head gardener where i volunteer, would be so proud.
FLOWER ARRANGING FOR DUMMIES
this is rosemary. that's it. i hacked it all back, brought it inside, and inhaled with a big ahhhh all night long. also, notice the use of my hurricane candles for mood lighting. woo-woo.
indian corn (3 for $2.50 at the farmer's market).
ta-dah! that bare wall by my sink is suddenly a little harder to wash dishes next to, but a lot more interesting to look at.
and lastly, what crafting day would be complete without...
i halved my recipe of oatmeal cookies unable to imagine even eating 24 cookies all by myself.
yeah. um. two days later? the entire batch is gone. i'm glad i didn't make all 48 for a different reason.
tah-dah. so there's my craftiness. now tell me about a craft you've made this fall.
