Acorn Jar & 2x4 Pumpkin

Here are a couple of easy crafts/decor ideas to help 'fall up' your house! The acorn jar is pretty self explainatory, just add some acorns to a jar you have---any jar. I picked these up on my our jog one morning...got some pretty funny looks. :)
Second, is the 2x4 pumpkin that is sooooo stinkin' easy. A group of girlfriends did it this morning and its so simple. Find that tutorial here or on the side under {Cute Halloween Crafts}.

ALSO: I thought it would be fun to start a designated day of something crafty and I came up with "Sew Saturday!" Every Saturday try and post something that you have sewn (or something you want to sew) and share the tutorial or pattern with us. Oh, and feel free to share other crafts that day too....


  1. This is adorable. I saw the one at Brown Paper Packages, but for some reason, I didn't notice the boards vertically! Thanks for letting me see it again from this way!

  2. Actually, when we did this with the girls we all noticed it looked more pumpkin-like when we did in vertically. So we switched it up and I might add a few more touches because last night my husband said it looked like a present, not a pumpkin (whatever) but I will post a pic when I add some touches. Thanks for visiting our blog! :) I love yours!

  3. im you girlz' newest follower! this pumpkin is sooo cute! this is going on my "to do" list for sure!:) im the same way i would much rather "craft it" then "buy it"!


  4. I found you over at Someday Crafts. I love the pumpkin. Over at my blog I am starting my first link party. It is called 2x4 Tuesdays! You should come over and link your pumpkin! Hope to see you! And I am a follower now! http://craftersanonymousclub.blogspot.com/2010/09/2x4-tuesday.html

  5. Just a thought. I gathered acorns like that last year and put them in a vase. What I didn't know was that they get worms in them. I don't know if you have to cook them first or something, but keep an eye on them. they get moldy too.
