It's Fall - A Look Back at Fun Crafts...Day 277

The morning weather is crisp, the leaves are falling, the Hogs play every Saturday and pumpkins are everywhere...it must be Fall! Whoo hoo! Up until a couple years ago, I didn't really appreciate Fall. I have always been a BIG fan of Summer and I was never happy for it leave...so Fall was really just a victim of being around when Summer ended :o)

But my kids have changed my feelings about Fall. Fall is fun with kids :o) Pumpkin patches, bonfires, Fall crafts, football games, Fall snacks, hayrides, the lists goes on and on!

Last year, the girls and I made lots of fun fall crafts. We were so excited to get them out of the attic this afternoon!

Let me preface these pictures with this...we are not fancy, smancy decorators around here...simple, homemade stuff beats out store bought stuff everytime :o)

How about a quick craft flashback?

Here are the super easy, fabric pumpkins we made last year...out of toilet paper :o)

Since I was walking around the house clicking pictures of the new Fall decor, I decided to snap a couple pics of our other decorations :o)

I found this cute pumpkin last year, half off! LOVE a good deal!

And of course, our ever present scarecrows...I don't know how many years these guys have been around, but I am pretty sure they joined our family before any of the kids :o)

We made the BOO letters! They turned out very cute, except the scrapbook paper bubbled! :/
