Halloween Heart Face Box DIY

by Sally J Shim

It’s time to start thinking about Halloween goodies for my boys to pass out to their classmates. We love the Comme des Garçons Play heart logo so I thought it would be fun to make our own Halloween inspired version. You can fill the pillow boxes with sweet treats like candy or cookies or non-sweet treats like crayons and stickers.

Apple Pie Topper DIY

by Kathleen Ballos

With autumn now in full swing, apple pie season has arrived with it. Make these simple apple pom pom toppers to add a pop of color to your pie! If you’re hosting Thanksgiving this year and plan on having several different types of pie, wouldn’t this be a fun way to let your guests know which is which? Until then I might have to use these toppers as an excuse to go apple picking with some friends and return home to bake a fresh apple pie together!

Paper Gemstone Crown

by Kitiya Palaskas

Here’s a fun and sparkly accessory that’s perfect for all of those upcoming holiday parties! I made mine out of various shades of gold paper – but it would be fun to experiment with different colors of the rainbow. To start this easy project, use our template to make a bunch of paper gemstones. Then attach them a headband using hot glue. Voila – an easy and fun twist on the traditional party hat!

Welcome Home Cake Topper DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

A few weeks ago my mom gave me a package of wooden letters. I put them away, not knowing exactly what to do with them. When my husband came home from a long trip, I knew it was time to break them out. This is the prettiest and easiest cake topper I’ve ever made. And, you can write any message under the sun with these letters, and use any color sugar you can find – there are so many pretty hues out there.
