Swirling Leaves Table Runner

affiliate

Today’s project is a hybrid table runner/place mat/table cloth. It’s square so it’s not really a runner, too big to really be place mat but too small to be a table cloth. It’s a fabric table cover thingy. As far as time goes, this isn’t a quick project. It’s easy but it took me a few nights to put together.

One Bunch Faux-Flower Swapable Wreath

affiliate

Have you ever walked into the fake floral aisle of Michael’s or HobLob or Joann’s and felt like fainting? I have. There are too many options and  more often than not the aisle is a bit claustrophobic. I designed this tutorial to take the guess work out of using fake flowers in a wreath while also being change-able for different seasons and holidays. There is never enough room to store all the wreathes I want to make so I needed this to be useful for more than 2 months. Pick a bunch of flowers with different elements and colors, the great thing is they are all coordinated without any effort from you! Enjoy!

Apple Tree Applique Pillow

Last fall I made a Fall Forest Pillow with fusible applique. I was in a rush so I never actually sewed the appliques down. Between the two of us, guests and pets the appliques barely made it through the season.

DIY Autumn Barn Wedding Invitation

A few weeks ago I was freaking out over my wedding invitations. They look (and were) fairly simple but it seems like they took forever! There were (conservatively) 1 million steps. In the end I made 51 invitations and 51 reply cards.

Pumpkin Pie Croissants

When I saw this I immediately pinned it and knew I had to make it. I made them for my house warming party in October and last weekend for my last Christmas of 2011 (yeah, in January 2012). Everyone who has one loves it. 
Pumpkin Pie Croissants From Pressed Down, Shaken Together
This is one of my favorite last minute recipes. I’ve made it twice now, once with canned pumpkin and once with homemade pumpkin.
See? Not as pretty but more pumpkiny
Here’s the secret, fill those suckers up! They look worse but taste sooo much better. There will be some explosions in the oven. I use a silicone mat to catch the spills. If you skimp on the filling you will have a lot left at the end. 
One more tip: use a pizza cutter to 1/2 the croissant triangles. Add the filling before you separate the pieces then roll them up. You can get closer the the edges without making as much of a mess
