One of my favourite things about the autumn months is coming home at night and snuggling by the heater under warm blankets with candles or incense burning in the background. The heavenly scents help me to unwind after a long day at work, and incense holders are so easy to make that there's no excuse not to have a stick or two burning away while you cozy up and get stuck into that good book.

I'll admit it: I don't really like carving pumpkins. I always have grand plans, but by the time you head to the patch, select just the right one, gorge on popcorn balls, look for the carving tools, spread the newspaper, and begin the epic cleanout process...I'm kinda over it.
You know the kind... the artificial ones that really look fake. But the fact that they can be used year after year can be very appealing - it saves money and cuts back on waste. Well there are plenty of creative ways to transform these foam craft store pumpkins into masterpieces so cool that no one will even notice that they're fake. Here are ten of our favorites.

I’ll be the first to admit I have a lot of tote bags. In fact my drawers are filled with pretty much every colour, pattern and size imaginable.
But given that I throw everything into these bags as I run out the door including my gym clothes, craft glues and other items that I don’t want anywhere near my food, I thought it was high time I reserved a bag just for my fresh fruit and vegetables.

Although the maker of these MCM hand dishes (Cintia) identifies them as a "kids craft," the idea and technique is appropriate for any age. Although, preserving the size and shape of a kid's hand in such a way is about the coolest childhood memento ever. I've just started experimenting with air dry clay, which this project utilizes, and

My mum is a very organised and practical person. Growing up, everything was perfectly arranged and categorised, from the pictures in our photo albums to the contents of our freezer. So I suppose it’s no surprise that I now find myself making lists, organising my days according to tasks and popping reminders all over the house the same way she does. Like mother like daughter right?
And since having a list of tasks on my phone doesn’t seem to cut it anymore (I always manage to forget things!), I thought I’d make myself some magnets so I can hang up those super important details in a place where they’ll grab my attention.

I love to add emphasis and a little drama to decor pieces that are otherwise mundane and a little boring. We all have clocks in our home, but I'm sure we buy them with functionality in mind, rather than style. I decided to create this Giant Modern Clock, because it not only serves a purpose (as clocks always do), but also it adds that great burst of color and a geometric touch to the space in a big and bold way!
This super easy project combines all of the hot trends that are happening right now - metallic hardware, geometric shapes and even colored leather. And beyond that, these dishes are downright functional. In addition to being the perfect receptacle for jewelry, they would also make a great spot for keys. Or spare change. Or paper clips. And the list goes on. Continue reading to find out how to make your own triangular trinket dish.
