Button craft: DIY a Button Acorn for fall

I love the colors on these Button Acorns. Easy tutorial over on CraftsnCoffee.com.

I have one more easy fall decorating idea today, and it’s a fall craft the kids can help with, too. My daughter and I both worked on these Button Acorns, and we love how they turned out.

The Indian corn print on the acorn caps reminds me of the…

Gorgeous velvet pumpkins for fall! Tutorial on CraftsnCoffee.com.

These No-Sew Velvet Pumpkins are gorgeous, especially when topped off with real pumpkin stems. I bet you’re already familiar with tucking fabric pieces into STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam. It’s the same technique Kathleen George used when she made the Satin & Brocade Tucked Fabric Ornaments, and the Fresh & Fancy Foam & Fabric Eggs. What’s different here is that Kathleen also shaped each section in the…
