DIY Fall Festival - Last Minute Halloween!

It's that time of week - time to show off your DIY Fall related projects!

I was blown away by this awesome iPhone costume made by Heather at Decor4Poor!  Visit her here to see the details. Wow, huh? First place costume winner for sure!

This beautiful pumpkin is up for grabs at Frou-FruGal (enter here).  She also typed up an easy tutorial and it's super cheap so you can DIY!

Still plenty of time to create a beautiful fall wreath.  Check out this great tutorial from Susan at Hometown Girl. Inspiration: Pottery Barn.  Cost:  $6.50!

Thanks for the comments about the fall photo shoot with my girls last week - I loved the encouragement!  As soon as I get a free minute (how and when still to be determined - I'm giving the place below a shot. Have you tried putting one of your photos on a canvas?  I'd love to hear about your experience!)
