#1 – DIY Sequin Pumpkin

Bored of the same old pumpkin décor for Halloween? Try creating a sequin pumpkin courtesy of Sugar and Cloth to add a bit of flair to your usual décor. You can use a plastic pumpkin for this project so you can reuse the pumpkin year after year. Once you have your pumpkin, pick out any color of sequins you wish (we personally love the gold) and some crafting glue. It is as simple as gluing the sequins to the pumpkin in big polka dots. But feel free to get creative and arrange the sequins any way you like!

#2 – Pumpkin Pie Kettle Corn

One of our favorite fall inspired snack recipes also comes from Sugar and Cloth and is for Pumpkin Pie Kettle Corn!



#3 – Autumn Leaf Mason Jar Candle Holder

Create this easy Autumn Leaf Mason Jar Candle Holder courtesy of Spark and Chemistry to spice up your dining room table, mantle or living room.
