I am such a happy girl! Today is the first day of fall! You can feel it in the air -- the cooler temperatures at night....the crisp cool air in the morning. The days still fluctuate with warmer temperatures right now -- but hey -- I'll take what I can get!!
Last night I started on a new craft project. My vision isn't complete yet, but here's a sneek peek --
I made this from these:
|Plastic megaphones - found in the $1 section of Michael's -- on clearance for .09/each!!|
AND they are a LOT cheaper than the floral foam cones!
I have to admit that it didn't go as smoothly as I expected at first. The yarn kept slipping until I pulled out my handy-dandy glue gun and strategically placed strips of hot glue around it. I still have about 3-4 to make!
I also pulled out my fall decorations this week. This year, I opted to lighten up on the Halloween decortions and stick with a general "fall" theme.....that way I can just keep them up through Thanksgiving.

How do you bring in the fall?
