Subway art and bead board...

I have made some pretty awesome things this week that I can't wait to show you... but until then I pulled this out and realized I never showed it to you guys!!
I created this subway art with a scrap piece of bead board, some plexi glass, scrap book paper and vinyl.
The plexi glass came pre cut - its 8X10. I cut the scrap book paper to the same size and used a drill to make little holes in the corners of both the plexi glass and the bead board. Then I used plexi glass screw to attach the two together. Then cut some vinyl and transferred it on to the plexi glass.
It is one of my favorite christmas crafts.. I am thinking about making a few more for christmas gifts this year!!

Silly Turkey

I am refusing to pass up Thanksgiving this year. In years past I have gone straight from Halloween to Christmas- but this year I am holding out!!

I have no idea where I got this idea from!! I had a few images saved of some cute wood turkeys and I just kind of mashed them all together and created this super silly turkey.
I cut all the pieces with my jigsaw.. and painted him with left over craft paint I had. He looks really cute on my front door!!

My DIY funky frame...

I found this awesome tutorial from Not Just a Housewife and have wanted to try it out ever since. It was so fun to make.. and I am sure there will be many more to come. These would even make the best Christmas gifts ever... if only I had the time !!

I put it in our TINY entry way.. with some cute scrap book paper and the word family I think it fits in perfectly for thanksgiving!!

Looks good next to Mr.Turkey, my latest D.I find...

Go check out her tutorial and make your own :)

And were moving on...

from halloween that is!!
We are already listening to Christmas music.. is that twisted? Yes maybe.. but we will do it anyways:) I can't give in to the urge to decorate for Christmas yet- so until I cant stand it anymore here is our Fall/Thanksgiving mantel!!

I made the harvest blocks and wood pumpkins last year. The little glass jar is filled with acorns and all the candle sticks came from the D.I or thrift stores.

I threw together this little leaf banner while waiting for my daughter to wake up from her nap.. not sure how much I like it? What do you think? Maybe I will post a tutorial - or maybe that would be pointless since it was seriously a 5 minute project.
