Scary Good Chocolate Cupcakes

As it’s Halloween season, it seemed only right to do a bit of seasonal baking! Of course I always do, whether it’s shortbread, or cake! This year I thought I’d make some scary good chocolate cupcakes! Just to do something a little bit different!

Mini Halloween Cross Stitch

Just for fun, I thought I’d work on stitching a little seasonal something! So I picked up this cute Mouseloft mini Halloween cross-stitch kit. I really love these little kits as they’re quick to stitch, and are a little crafty break, not taking up too much time.

Halloween Bunting – It’s Sew Easy!

I decided what we needed above our fireplace was some fun Halloween bunting! (Stu has since suggested I make Christmas bunting, so watch this space)! This is a quick and easy sewing project for beginners or experienced sewists!

Quick Knit Mug Cosy

Autumn is totally knitting season, if you ask me! There’s something nice about sitting in front of the tv, with a bit of knitting; and I love a quick little project; just to break up anything bigger I’m working on. So this year I knitted up a quick knit mug cosy, in autumnal orange.

Simple Autumn Wreath – Quick Crafts

In case anyone missed it, I love a wreath… So it seemed only right that I got to making something I could dig out around October every year to add a little seasonal touch. With that in mind I headed to Hobbycraft, and picked up some supplies to make my own simple autumn wreath.

I wanted something more autumnal than Halloween based, but that worked for both aspects. It’s a nice little addition before heading into my favourite season of all!
