These Burlap bags already had a design on it, but we wanted to personalize them to use as Goodie Bags for wedding guests staying at a local hotel. Using Deco Art Stencils & SoSoft Fabric Paints, we got the final designs and they look amazing.
First design was a monogram, stenciled “W”. The 2nd design was hand written initials N J with a heart between the two.
To create the designs, we used a cup to draw a circle in the center & then painted the circle solid black. A stenciled gold “W” in the center of the circle is very elegant. Love the design of the stencil letters used- Americana 2” simple script letter set.

We also used the stencils on our Fall Burlap Ribbon Post.

These mini pumpkin pies were so easy to make and just the right amount of dessert. They are also great for a dessert bar to add with other choices so you can have a few bites and still enjoy another treat.
They were so easy to make with ready made pie crusts. I found the 4” circle was the perfect size to fit in a cupcake pan. I followed the directions for the filling on the canned pumpkin pie mix, and the can was 4” wide. How perfect! I used the can to cut my circle for each of the mini pie crusts, then pressed into the tin. Then poured the prepared pie mix until full in each of the prepared cups.
Using small fall cutters, from Williams Sonoma, rerolled the scraps of pie crust to make cutouts to embellish the pies. Brushed the cutouts with some of the left over evaporated milk from the filling. Then added the cutouts to the pies after the first 13 minutes of baking when I reduced the oven temperature.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Prepare pumpkin pie filling per can directions
- Cut out 12 4” circles and line each tin in your cupcake pan, crimping top edges with your fingers
- Bake pies for 13 minutes at 425 degrees
- Turn down heat, (*add top cut outs if you chose) bake for additional 19-23 minutes until filling is set, toothpick comes out clean
- Let cool and gently use a spoon to lift the pies out of the pan
Enjoy plain or with a dollop of cream~

I love to decorate for fall. But love a few touches around my home that will stay up until halloween. Easy items that can transition with just a few changes to last through Thanksgiving. On the cake stand in my entry with the cat, I can remove that and place a pumpkin on it until Thanksgiving. Replace hand towels with a fall theme, so easy to layer and change the look from halloween to thanksgiving.
Enjoy each season in your home with a few simple touches~

Easy to do & Frug-Elegant! This Ribbon is gorgeous on this Pillow & Candle- coordinating Fall Decor!
Supplies Needed: Burlap Ribbon (we went with a warm brown color), Paint Pens & Stencils
Keeping things simple & easy clean up, we love using paint pens. Here, we use the stencils the same way as if we were using paint & brush or roller, but we use the Paint Pens by simply pressing on the material with the stencil firmly pressed in place. Easy to do, spelling out “FALL” The color called Pumpkin is the perfect shade with the pillow (we already had).
We LOVE to use items we have throughout the house and then re-decorate it over & over again- this keeps down storage & saves lots of $$.

This pumpkin shaped soap dispenser is very simple & plain. Spraying some Krylon Make it Stone! spray paint, the clear plastic becomes textured like stone. No need to mask off any sections, just stick a paper towel or tissue bunched up so not spray goes inside. I didn’t spray to completely cover, just a light coating- fast. Now you can see through when the soap is poured in (and its orange!). The spray does need to dry thoroughly. An optional addition- to add the jute wrapped around the top. Just a few touches with the glue gun & the jute stays put.
This really looks great as a fall decor piece. Then for Halloween, break out those plastic spiders! A little glue gun glue to attach them & your halloween soap dispenser is finished!
