10 Fabulous & Easy Fall Crafts | I’m Lovin’ It


Is it feeling like fall yet where you live?  We keep getting a nice taste of fall weather……today’s high is expected to be only 70.  I just love all the decorating possibilities of this season. The gorgeous colors of leaves,  all the natural objects that we can bring in from out of doors to display the bounty of the season. It doesn’t take much to create amazing crafts, vignettes, and centerpieces thanks to the shapes and colors of pumpkins, gourds, leaf branches, and acorns.   Last week’s party was full of inspiring ideas for Fabulous & Easy Fall Crafts and Decor, so I collected a few that caught my eye to share with you today!

Giant Photo Wall for Parties {really cheap}


Print your favorite photos on blueprint paper for a giant photo wall for your next party!  Large impact for little cost!

Learn how to create a GIANT PHOTO WALL...really cheap at  GREAT for birthday parties, graduation, showers or any celebration!

I was going thru some photos the other day and realized I never shared the fun giant photo wall I made for Allison’s graduation party this summer.  It’s such a fun idea for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, showers……really any kind of celebration.

And the best part………it’s really cheap with a big impact!

Over a year ago Jen shared how she made a giant photo wall for her daughter’s baptism, by having photo’s printed on blueprint paper.  I knew it would be a really cool idea for the graduation party!

All you have to do is find a print shop that does large scale copies on blueprint paper.  They will be black and white and a little grainy, but they turn out really awesome!

At our old house I had purchased a digital file and called a local printer to print a 36″x48″ poster for me……for less than $5.  I emailed them the file and they had it ready an hour or so later.  I loved it and hung it over our sofa at our old house. {click to continue}
