Top 10 Crafts to Make this Week {9/30}

It’s that time again – I’m featuring my top ten crafts to make this week from last Tuesday’s linky party. I hope you find something fabulous that you’d like to make this week as well. I had to narrow it down from over 532 posts. Phew!

These are just the 10 tutorials that I had time to highlight right now, you’ll see many more on this and the other Tip Junkie sister sites as well. So a huge thank you for those who took the time to link up their fabulous tutorials!

10.  Peacock Costume ~ This peacock costume is absolutely darling!  Everyone will be talking about it.  No sewing is required either.  The only preparation is making a blue and green tulle skirt and gluing feathers to cardboard.

41.  DIY Fabric Pumpkins ~ Who says pumpkins have to be orange?  I adore the color palette and mixture of prints.  Learn how to make these pumpkins with this detailed sewing how-to with pictured instructions.


97.  Vintage Wooden Signs ~ Check out these fabulous vintage wooden signs.  Guess what?  They aren’t made from vinyl letters.  Talitha shows you a technique using chalk to transfer your letters.

155.  Pumpkin Spice Scones ~ These Starbucks inspired pumpkin spice scones look absolutely scrumptious!  They’re a yummy fall treat to make for breakfast, brunch or as a gift for a new neighbor.

329.  Aqua & Yellow Fall Tablescape ~ If you’re looking for a stylish way to decorate your dining table this fall, this is the perfect post for you!  The non-traditional color palette of aqua and yellow is fabulous.  There are many little details you don’t want to miss.

394.  Men’s Slacks to Pencil Skirt ~ Refashion a pair of men’s slacks into a stylish pencil skirt.  The cut is a classic and figure flattering for all.

406.  Braided Suede Bracelet ~ Aren’t these braided suede bracelets beautiful?!  They’re perfect for women and girls of all ages.  You can mix them up with three different colors or double up for a wider bracelet.

446.  Fun With Fall Leaves ~ This project is fun for the whole family and also a great way to spend time together.  Take a nature walk and collect leaves of all shapes and sizes.  Press them, then display them in this festive book page banner.

468.  Crochet Owl Hat ~ Make these cute crochet owl hats for your little one or for yourself.  That’s right, the pattern is for newborn to adult.  There’s also a pdf version to download.

505.  School Desk & Chair Re-do ~ The makeover of this desk and chair is phenomenal.  I adore the combination of paint colors. You would never recognize the originals.  Both pieces got a light sanding, a new coat of paint and some distressing.

Wondering what was the most popular {or most clicked on} idea from the linky party? Well… it was Extra Long Cheap Curtains.
