BFF Open House #223 Pumpkins and Wreaths

The Answer Is Chocolate

Hi all. Hope everyone had a nice Labor day and a good week. Fall is definitely upon us and there were some great ideas shared at last week's party! This time of year it's fun to change out or add a wreath and pumpkins are a decorating essential. I may  not like eating pumpkin but can't get enough of decorating with them! 

I have long wanted to make some velvet pumpkins and even saved stems from last year's real pumpkins to use. Heather at Woods of Bell Trees has a great tutorial and I love the colors she chose. These are so elegant and can be out through Thanksgiving! 

Logan, at Logan Can shared a great tutorial on how to make a burlap wreath. Think of all the color combination possiblities with ribbons you can use! 

If you want a little spookier look, Rhonda at The Messy Roost has the perfect idea using eyeballs from Dollar Tree! 

I agree with Rhonda. The "eyes" have it! 

Who says pumpkins have to be round? I love these 2x4 pumpkins from Alayna's Creations. Again so many possibilities...paint, paper, stencil...all three? 

Now on to this week's party!

BFF Open House #222

The Answer Is Chocolate

Yay! Best day of the week Friday Eve. I am so ready for fall "y'all". I am ready for boots and sweaters and cold crisp days. 

Let's start with 15 Fall Decor Hacks shared by Engineer Mommy. There are a bunch of fun projects here. 

Rhonda over at the Messy Roost is hot and maybe like me ready for Fall. She made this very cool monogram sign (as in she made and painted the background that looks like old found wood) in July but I think it's perfect for Fall ! 

Even if it's still hot outside where you are, you can bring a little Fall indoors with a tablescape like the one shared by Grandparent's Plus. I think this is a nice transition from Summer to Fall. 

Finally if (like me) you are not a big fan of the pumpkin ( I know...this is a travesty!) here's a way you can have your pumpkin and eat it too...just make your chocolate cupcakes look like pumpkins as shared by One Little Project At A Time. Problem solved!

Now on to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party #35 and BFF The Messy Roost!

Welcome to the 35th BFF Open House Link Party and the first one of 2012!

I’m looking forward to another fun year seeing what everyone’s up to and being creatively inspired by you all. I had some much fun meeting new bloggers in 2011 and am looking forward to making many new “BFFs” in 2012.

To start the year off right, let me introduce you to the first Blog Feature Friday guest of 2012, Rhonda from The Messy Roost!

I love how she describes her blog so I’ll let her do it:
I believe people are born organized. I, however, was not. Please join me in my quest to turn my Messy Roost into a Tidy Coop.
Rhonda has shared some great projects at previous parties. Here are just a few of her creations. You can get a jump start on Christmas cookie gifts / exchanges by saving cans throughout the year and then dressing them up like Rhonda did:
I’d be thrilled just getting an empty can!

I love this Christmas tree idea she did and it’s all from hole punched holes! I could see doing this idea in other shapes and on cards etc.
Beyond Christmas, I just can’t get enough of topiaries and Rhonda has a wonderful tutorial for how she made these:

And I love how she did this coffee filter wreath and mounted it on a board:

I really don’t believe her roost is messy at all! I hope you’ll go by and visit and say hi to Rhonda!

Now, let’s see what everyone’s been up to in the new year. Just a few rules. Not too many! If you made it , link it. Please no advertising or promotions. And please link to your specific post page. That’s it. Well besides going and visiting other party goers but that goes w/out saying! Party On!
