Autumn Enchantment

If you love the colors of fall and look forward to bringing them indoors this season here are a few cool ideas and crafts that would be the perfect way to pass an Autumn afternoon.

1. Cloches aren't only for your garden! If you have these glass domes outside all summer and don't know what to do with them come winter this is the perfect solution, fill them with various mini pumpkins and squashes. This would also look great in a collection of apothocary jars as well. Try thinking outside of the usual orange varieties and go with a cream or green mixture for a new take on this idea!

2. Do you have a pile of pinecones littering your yard? Bring them inside with a seasonal wreath or mantle garland. They don't just have to be for the holidays anymore and the various shades of brown add a flare of earthy fun to any interior.

3. Not great at carving pumpkins? This creepy, yet simple idea from Martha Stewart will spook up even the least crafty person's porch. Just carve circles in your pumpkin and have a family of mice poking in and out of all the holes!

Cloches are my FAVORITE! I LOVE them!! If I didn't have a reckless dog who tries to get into everything I'd so have some. :(
