I have high hopes of taking time to be crafty this Fall. Here are a few things on my list to make.

Pretty Wreath

My door is dark wood. It’s always a challenge to get something to stand out. Maybe if the ribbon is really bright orange it will work. Love the feathers. I can only use these outside… Rocky LOVES to eat feathers then proceed to throw up on my rug. A favorite pastime of my cat.

Halloween Tree

Halloween Lampshade

What You Need
  • Lampshade
  • Sheet crepe paper: orange and black
  • 1-inch-diameter circle punch
  • Orange construction paper
  • Crafts glue
How to Make It
  1. Cut 2- and 3-inch-wide strips of orange and black crepe paper long enough to fit around the lampshade.
  2. Fold each strip lengthwise, and using scissors, cut slits 1/2 inch apart to make the fringe.
  3. Glue the fringes in place on the shade.
  4. Punch orange paper circles and adhere to the shade with glue.

Use double-sided tape instead of crafts glue if you plan to use the lampshade post-Halloween.

  1. That wreath is stunning! You could do it on a dark door with orange, as you say, or try cream or light beige or light sage. I have a dark wood door, too!

  2. Love all these ideas. Isn’t that an adorable lampshade?!? The little girl is a cutie, too! I just bought some ornies for Halloween yesterday. Hubby thinks I’ve flipped!!
