That’s right, I’m dedicating this post to Star Wars — May the 4th be with you is tomorrow after all.
Here are some crafts inspired by everyone’s favorite science fiction film of all time (If it’s not, recheck your life):
This has been a crazy year for me – I have multiple friends getting married and all of them are so special to me that I can’t see myself going off and getting them some gift from their registry and calling it a day.
Instead, I’m taking this opportunity to try and craft something special for each of them. The hard part now will be to decide what!
Here are some ideas and some projects I’ve completed so far with lots of opportunities to do more still to come —
Embroidery with couples name or initials
Write out song lyrics and frame a special memento
Make the bride a necklace with the couple’s initials
I mean, could it be any cuter?
For my friend Leah, I painted a picture frame and framed her wedding invitation with some matting I picked up at a local craft store.
Happily Ever After pillow
You can create a whole recipe book for her and ask her family to add their favorite recipes.
Frame the state and location of the wedding.
Use scrap book paper and canvas to create a wall decoration worthy of the couple’s new home together
I love clothes, like, a lot. To that end, I love clothes that no one else has and what better way to ensure that than to make your own!
Here’s some of my homemade T-shirts:
Made this one for my 21st Birthday, which was spent at Disney World (I was on the phone with Goofy when this photo was taken!)
Birthday Posse T-shirts
St. Patrick’s Day T-Shirts for a run we were in
Made onesies for my niece when she was born
I’m an Aunt T-shirts
And here are some ideas for my next crafternoon:
What will they think of next? I was doing what I do best, perusing Pinterest when I continually stumbled upon these amazing projects that simply require a quick trip to Lowe’s paint section.
It’s amazing what a little ingenuity can get you. Here are just a few of the projects I found:

I’m not one for blank walls. I think if I had it my way every space would be filled with something whether it be a framed photo or something hand crafted.
It makes wherever you are feel like home if there’s something nailed to the wall.
Here are some of my favorite ideas for DIY wall decor.
Use a stencil on scrapbook paper and hand on twine.
Make a deer head out of foam and scrapbook paper.
For the deer tutorial, visit chronicle books website.
Use newspaper to create printed quotes.

Use fabric and embroidery hoops to create wall hangings.

Happy fall everyone! Here are some of the ideas I’ve put on my “to do” list for the next few weeks to get myself into the new season spirit.
Happy Autumn everyone!
