Fall Stitchery, Pumpkins & Candy Apples

Here are a few fall crafts that I have been working on and have finally finished. I already showed you the stitchery but I finally got around to painting a frame for it. I hung it in the stairway and now I am looking for more patterns so that I can change it out as the seasons come & go.
You can find this free pattern by Diane Cook HERE at the Cross Eyed Crow. You will have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find the patterns but there are tons of them.

The directions for the apples and pumpkins came from Char over at The Pickled Pepper Patch.
My crafts never come out perfect like hers but I always have fun trying.

I painted Modge-Podge on the pears and then sprinkled them with cinnamon. It was a bit messy but it sure smelled good.


I also used Modge-Podge mixed with a little paint to coat my candy apples. Now I just need a place to set them and maybe a few fillers around them.


I used the last of my orange fabric scraps to make the mini pumpkins in the first photo. I didn't follow the directions completely but they still turned out cute.

I envy all of you crafters out there. You gals come up with some very clever and unique ideas.
I'm just glad that you share them with us.
