DIY Pallet Pumpkin Stand
This simple & inexpensive DIY Pumpkin Stand Photo Prop was the perfect size for our then-two-year-old to pose behind, and she LOVED playing market, selling us pumpkins and apples from the yard. Her brothers, who were just hitting the six-month mark, were able to be propped against the DIY Pallet Pumpkin Stand, allowing us some great photos without our hands sneaking in to hold them in place.

And there’s so much room for personal expression!
Tartan Day No Sew Tutu DIY
New Brunswick’s tartan (which I used for this Tartan Day No Sew Tutu) was created in Gagetown in 1959, commissioned by Lord Beaverbrook. The red used symbolizes the loyalty of both the New Brunswick Regiment and the province’s early Loyalist settlers. The ‘beaver brown’ is a nod to Beaverbrook. The forest green represents our lumber history, while the meadow green stands for agriculture. The blue symoblizes our coastal and inland water, while the threads of gold represent our potential wealth.
