If there's one thing I love about fall, its the cozy kinda cold, but still sunny days where I can stay indoors with a cup of tea, some good music and a great DIY idea in my head.
I am a HUGE crafter! (Have been since I could hold a needle and thread) so sitting down to crochet a fall beanie or make my own notebook from an old vinyl record is pretty much a daily activity to me. When I'm not designing or coming up with new ideas and jotting them down in one of my (many) sketchbooks. I can be found online, in the library or at my local thrift store scrounging up ideas for my next big DIY.
I've already found a few DIY projects that I'm thinking of attacking this weekend! Its gonna be AWESOME!
Here are a few of my favorites so far! Click the picture for a direct link to the awesomeness if you are interested!
1. Wooden Incense Holder (Free People Blog)
I'm a sucker for burning incense in the fall! This DIY is gonna be a MUST for me! :D
2. Pumpkin Pie Edible Lip Scrub & Lip Balm (Henry Happened Blog)
Mmmmmmm....pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. Also, if you'd like to make your own pumpkin spice that's needed for the lip balm:
3. Embroidery Hoop Memo Board (Think Crafts Blog)
I feel like this would be a PERFECT idea for when it comes to displaying all the ticket stubs collected from past concerts for all your friends to see. So easy to make too which is a bonus!
4. Song Lyric Wall Art (A Beautiful Mess)
Now, I'm sure you've seen this project flying around the internet but what I love about it is its so versatile! You can use your favorite lyrics, favorite quotes, favorite words, anything! And whats even better! It calls for a THRIFT STORE RUN! :D
5. Animal Pompoms (Muymolon Blog)
Imagine one of these little guys hanging off your keys or cell phone? Ahhhh so cute! I want a panda :3
So if you can't find anything to do this weekend, try some fall DIY's! They are a plenty this time of year and for good reason! Try out a few here or go on Pinterest, Tumblr, Cut Out And Keep, A Beautiful Mess, wherever! You are bound to find one :)
Do you live the DIY life? Whats your favorite DIY project you've done so far? Mine is probably the bandana backed shirt I made this week. I saw it on A Beautiful Mess and just HAD to try it!

Pretty darn close huh? I love this shirt! I'm gonna get better pictures of me wearing it in the future but it was SO easy to make! I'm thinking about wearing it to a few future concerts I've been thinking about...hmmm. Click here to see what I'm talking about and maybe do it yourself!
