I was in a couple fall related swaps and wanted to share some of the things I made!

First up was this Pinterest inspired witchy sign! I just bought a wooden framed out blank sqaure at Walmart and went to town with the craft paint! I started with a black base then added two different orange colors using a foam brush. I free-handed the hat and letters. Then I just tied off some plaid ribbon and tacked it to the back!

Next is a spoon wand that I have been inspired to make since I received a gorgeous one from Knickertwist in a swap last year! I took a wooden spoon and woodburned the symbol for Hecate and Prosperity. I then used an orange paint wash over it. I wound some plaid ribbin around the handle with some eucalyptus and wire. I embelished with a pentagram charm and orange feather.

This next project, I just took a plain craft hand broom and embellished with some eucalyptus, ribbon, raffia, cinnamon sticks, pinecones and glass leaves.

Then I made a charm bracelet with all things fall! I mixed different metallic tones so my partner could wear it with almost anything Wink

Thanks for looking!!!

Neat hat!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

This is a great collection of projects. So perfect for fall!! The use of the eucalyptus leaves on the spoon wand is really effective. Neat look!

I think all your projects are great, and really evoke the fall season.  I particularly like the broom.
