Fall Blog Hop Oct.26th

It's that time of year again!!  The leaves are falling, the weather is turning colder, and I can smell the pumpkin spice cappuccino brewing!  Fall is here!! I love this time of year!!

Fall is the theme for our blog hop today!! Anything goes! What makes fall fun for you and your family??  Is it the cooler days? Is it  a trip to the pumpkin patch?  Is it going to a Haunted House or on a hayrack ride? Do you love Halloween?

Hop along with us and see the things we like about fall and some of our fall projects.  Hope you get some fun ideas along the way.

Please leave us a little blog love along the way for a chance to win some blog candy.  Here is what you could win:

Wow we have had such a busy week at out house! It was my Birthday, and our Anniversary, plus we had parent teacher conferences.  Fall is a very busy time of year for us!  I love it!!

My most recent projects have been wine bottles.  I have really enjoyed making them!  The first two are ones I have made for either Birthday or wedding presents.
I used my Silhouette cameo to cut out the vinyl.  I used mini lights and ribbon on the inside of the bottles.

The next bottles I made for Halloween:

I created the witch face by tracing a coloring page and cut it out with vinyl. I painted the top of the bottle with black Krylon fusion spray paint.  I created the brim of the hat out of paper and hot glued it to the bottle. I added purple mini lights to one of the bottles and orange mini lights to the other one.  I also added ribbon wrapped around the lights and put them inside the bottles.  I used spider webbing and mini spiders to add a little extra to it.

                                              Thanks for stopping by my blog!
