Dollar Tree Halloween Witch Wreath

The Dollar Tree is a great place to find fun and affordable Halloween decor and Halloween craft supplies. I enjoy making holiday and seasonal wreaths, and I often gather my supplies from the Dollar Tree.  This year, I decided to make a fun witchy Halloween wreath using flowers, a witch hat, skeletons, a Halloween sign, and a spooky raven all from the Dollar Tree.

    Dollar Store Craft Challenge: Wire Hat Stands

    The Dollar Store (Tree) is one of my favorite stores to shop for everything from craft supplies, coloring books, holiday decor, holiday and birthday cards, and even cleaning supplies!  So I've joined some of my blogging friends for a Dollar Store Craft Challenge.  Each of us is sharing a project we created using items from the Dollar Store. After reading my post, I hope you'll stop by to see what amazing Dollar Store crafts my friends are sharing today. You can find the links to their blogs are the end of this post.

    So last fall, a friend and I shared a craft booth at our first craft fair. She knits, and I crochet. I was nervous about my first craft fair, so it was great to share a booth with a buddy. I learned that there's so much that goes into preparing for a craft fair other than creating your products. You need a table cloth, signage, business cards, a cash box, a card reader, props to display your items, and more. One of the main crafts that I was featuring were my Seahawks [inspired] Crochet Hats. A couple days before the craft fair, I realized that I only had ONE baby sized hat stand. Oh no!  I wanted two more.

    Fun Fall Owl Pillows

    For me, as soon as September hits, it's Fall y'all! One Fall, I made a Halloween Owl Pillow for my daughter, and my neighbor stopped by one day to sell us some donuts and coffee for her daughter's cheerleading fundraiser. When she saw the Halloween owl pillow I made for my daughter, she wanted one. She also saw a bundle of leafy fabric that I had left over from a few other projects. She asked if I'd make her an owl pillow using that leafy fabric, so I did. I also made an owl pillow using scarecrow and orange plaid fabric I stumbled upon during a trip to Jo-Ann fabric store. I love the  pretty fabric quarters and bundles from Joann.  Anyhoooo... Here are a few pictures I took while creating my fall owl pillows:

    Bacon & Eggs Scarf


    Wakey Wakey! Eggs & Bakey! You may have seen this super fun Bacon and Eggs Scarf worn by Kimmy Gibbler on Fuller House. And if you love it, you can have one of your very own. I have a couple listed in my Etsy Shop. Or if you're a fellow crocheter, you can find the pattern in the book Twinkie Chan's Goodies for Fashion Foodies. Here at my house, we LOVE bacon and eggs, so I will definitely have to make more of these scarves for my family and me. To create this yummy scarf, I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Autumn Red, BoneWhite, and Sunshine.

    Crochet Popcorn Scarf

    One of my favorite crochet scarves to make is the Popcorn Scarf. Here at my house, we LOVE popcorn, so I think this scarf is so fun! To make this scarf, I followed Twinkie Chan's pattern in her book Twinkie Chan's Goodies for Fashion Foodies. I did make one change to the pattern. Instead of cutting out the word POP in felt, I crocheted it and sewed it onto the popcorn buckets with a yarn needle. Also, to create this yummy scarf, I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Harvest Red, White, and Sunshine.

    Triangles Blanket in Seahawks Colors

    For Mother's Day, I made my mother a crochet throw with triangles in the colors gray, yellow, white, and blue. Since I enjoyed making that throw and it used up quite a bit of yarn, I decided to make another in Seahawks colors. I am on a stash busting mission, and I originally bought a bunch of yarn in Seahawks colors with plans to make a bunch of Seahawks inspired hats and a temperature super scarf. I started the scar, but decided not to continue with that project, but I still had all that yarn. So, I used it for a triangles blanket.
