The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~18~

This week’s Inspiration Board was filled with beautiful projects and loads of fall and Halloween creativity. Thank you to everyone who linked up and to everyone who came by to visit. 

Here are a few that I’m spotlighting this week.
Fall Pillows 12
A gorgeous table runner by Sew Woodsy. I find that I’m stencil challenged so I’m in awe of stencil projects that repeat a pattern so cleanly and beautifully. 

One of the best upcycle projects I’ve seen. A rich earth-toned fall garland made from painted paper bags by Bliss Bloom. What a great use of an overflowing stash of paper bags. 

I love the fabric used on this accent chair renovation by How to Nest for Less. Red, Damask and Burlap all rolled into one – perfect!

My Covered Bridge gives new life to this coffee table. It’s amazing what hard work and paint can achieve. 

Our House of Joyful Noise created a storage area for kids’ shoes, jackets and more out of doors. Great creative organization.

Candy and treats always taste better when they’re in cute packaging. Adorable treat bag toppers from Alderberry Hill. Owls, polka dots and buttons – definitely on the top of my list for cute embellishments. 

Features 18 - Owls
Speaking of owls, I just never get tired of seeing creative uses for owls. 

This tablescape by The Rooster and the Hen is stunning. The color palette is carried throughout all the details and the table runner is edged in “owl feathers”. Wonderful! 

I love the simplicity of this wreath by Lauren Inspired. The bare twigs make a perfect perch for the saucer-eyed owl.
I’m really into black accents this season and this spider is the perfect spooky touch for Halloween. Giggles Galore and More created these black spiders from jingle bells.

This door décor by Two Shades of Pink is such a refreshing take on fall. I love rich fall colors but these green apples in a basket are a lovely departure from the typical oranges and browns.
Spooky Potion Bottles by Frozen Earth Designs. Truly these are little works of art using the Raku method of pottery. Gorgeous!
