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.

Tartan Day No Sew Tutu DIY

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.
