Giving You Crafty Inspiration for Every Season of the Year

Fall is Here!

Welcome Fall! This is my favorite time of year, as well as my favorite newsletter to send out.  The next three holidays are the BIG ones and we all know there is plenty of crafting going on.  Some of you are preparing for holiday craft fairs, or creating gifts for loved ones this holiday season.  Children will be busy making holiday crafts at their school parties.  If you find yourself looking for ideas, be sure to stop by the site and browse the holiday categories.

Featured Crafts

A special note:  Sometimes this ezine will not show EVERY new craft that has been added to the site since the last issue.  Reason being, I want to keep the crafts I present to you current for the upcoming holidays.  Not to worry, every craft will eventually be shared with you, as the next appropriate season/holiday for the new craft approaches.  Remember, you can always see new crafts immediately by following my blog, my Facebook page, Google+, or my Twitter feed.

Little Witch Ornament
by Crafts For All Seasons

This little witch ornament is created from a clear plastic light bulb ornament.  I love that craft manufacturers are making these now.  Plastic will not break like glass, and the tops are easy to pop off {they are so easy to work with, and ready to stuff!}

Margo shows how to make a practical gift, because it is made out of candy!  It makes a great holiday decoration too!  This would be perfect for a host/hostess gift, or as a gift for a teacher or a special friend.

Here's some other recommended projects from the site, to celebrate our seasons and holidays coming up!

For Fall and Halloween:

Decoupage real leaves on a mason jar, make a skeleton out of cotton swabs, or make a gem spider ring.

Halloween Craft: Turkey Craft - PASSWORD: yarn

This turkey is made on a paper plate, and its beautiful tail is created by weaving yarn, over under, over under. It is a great project for kids of all ages. Young children may need some help, but weaving is beneficial for fine motor skills. This project is wonderful for the classroom. If you provide a variety of different colors of yarn and ribbon, each turkey will come out different.

Don't forget the password: yarn

Happy Crafting,
