Halloween Decor – Crafty Ideas – Blogtober 2020

This year, more than in the past I’ve gotten more into Halloween, and Halloween decor. Not that Halloween is something I don’t enjoy, but spending more time indoors; means wanting to make the most of the fun! So unlike any before; I’ve found myself getting more into bringing a little Spooky Season into the house.

Here are some fun, creative decorating ideas, you could try if you’d like to do the same!

A Day in the Life – Blogtober 2020

I loved the idea of sharing my “Day in the Life”, here on the blog, though the #BlogtoberWithBOA prompt is for tomorrow, and I’m following the prompts over on Instagram. I am sharing my day YESTERDAY because I’m at work today, so of course, not much happens at all!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

So, here’s my Tuesday, just for fun!

Autumn is my favourite season, and it seemed only right, to share my autumn bucket list here on the blog, to show what I have planned for the next month or so!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

I don’t have much planned generally for October, but there are a few things I would like to do! So I created a bucket list at the beginning of the month, knowing ahead of time, it was one of the prompts for Instagram…

Autumn Favourites Tag – Blogtober 2020

Before I get to my Autumn favourites, I thought I’d explain a little….

I thought I would do something a little different this month, and try Blogtober, now technically that means 31 days of posts, but posting every day, and working is a little much for me.

I will be posting every day on Instagram, but here on the blog there will be more content, and some extra fun things throughout the month, from crafts and decor ideas, to getting out and about and enjoying more of Autumn!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

So as a bit of an introduction to the season, I thought I’d share some of my favourites…

On The Desk – Mini Cross-Stitch Flowers

Can’t believe we’re in June! I have been trying to keep busy with cleaning and garden stuff this week; my flowers are growing, so I thought it only fitting that I work on something similar craft-wise too!

On the desk...

This year I picked up a few mini cross stitch kits. For those moments when I’m not as motivated to work on a larger project. This week has been one of those weeks…

In the Garden – Upcycled Candle Jars

How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 3)

When I started on my mission to brighten up the garden last year; I knew I wanted to include handmade and upcycled elements, but this is sometimes easier said than done. This week I share some easy upcycled candle Jars!

In the garden

Because our outside space is somewhat limited; our garden is mostly grass, with some unruly hedges on one side, bordered by high fences. We have essentially a smallish square of decking, where we can actually sit. Therefore anything I do, is mostly to make this small space, more pleasant to sit in!

While I was already working on ideas; I knew I wanted to do something a little different…

How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 2)

Quick cotton bunting is great for birthdays and other events; or like me, you can just use it to brighten up a dull space…

In the garden

Coming up with ways to brighten up a boring, and rather grey corner of the garden without modifying anything (as we rent), can be a bit tricky, but this is a really quick and easy project, that you can do for all sorts of occasions, or, like me, just for fun!
