Yesterday, I shared my Halloween projects I have been working on, including my Halloween hat display.


Using the same materials, I also made a Fall Inspired hat as well.

The foundation was the same, I started with a hat from Party City, glued it to pedestal from a discount store and place a ribbon around the base of the hat.

Then I began the layering once again.

This time I added rosettes made from the same ribbon, several types of colorful feathers, a few branches, pinecones, and a little sparkly owl friend.

Everything was attached with hot glue.

The end result, I think, is a fun fall display that can be used right till the Christmas change out. It would work on a tabletop vignette, a mantel, a console table, I think there are a lot of options.

I had some leftover materials from all the projects so I put this little guy together as well.


I started with a pewter creamer and added some floral foam inside.

The owl and large feather are on picks so I cut them down to size and place them in the floral foam.

Then, I added the bluish feathers that are almost like a small boa. I cut it down to a small piece, wrapped around the base to hide the floral foam and that was it!

I am sharing these fall crafts over at Kate’s blog Centsational Girl if you want to stop by and see some other great fall craft projects.


I will also be sharing at some of these link parties found here.

Thanks for stopping by.
