Friday Links: Autumn All Around

Now that fall is officially here, the web has exploded with pumpkins, wreaths, and goodies to eat. So the real question is, how do you make projects that stand out from the crowd? Here are some tips that might help you navigate that question:

  • Don't DIY - if the project you are making isn't complicated think about just showing it and add to the conversation in some other way. Danyelle of Dandee does this perfectly with her post on simple halloween decorations.
  • Teach skills - teach a new skill while using something fall related. Lexy of Proper teaches her readers how to marble pumpkins.
  • Inspire with new ideas - painting a pumpkin is typical, but adding confetti, like Rachel of The Crafted Life, inspires readers to think outside the box and dream up new ideas.
  • Add a printable - make things easy for your readers by including a printable like the girls of Handmade Mood did for their Perfect Pumpkin Muffins.
