Dryer Vent Pumpkin
For those of you who maybe haven't see this industrial pumpkin before, here is what you need: Dryer vent (purchased at your local hardware store), orange spray paint, a stem (I used cinnamon sticks, but you can use sticks or whatever you want), and a little bit of raffia. I cut and glued the vent into a donut using hot glue. Then I spray painted the whole thing, making sure to get in all the groves. Attach the cinnamon sticks by Jboyd

By Janea. She used a Cricut to cut the pumpkin and leaves, but I would handcut the pumpkin and maybe the leaves too. Pumpkin is dry embossed. Leaves are stamped with text or pattern stamps. Everything is sponged on the edges with vintage photo Distress ink. Pumpkin stem is a ribbon. Add button and raffia to embellish. by janna

(link) STRAWBERRY ROSES ~ These are gorgeous, inexpensive & unbelievably easy to make! You will need about 2 minutes per "rose"… yes, they are that easy! For the rose stems, (she) purchased roses at the dollar store. Recommend placing the "stem" into the strawberry before you begin so you don’t crush the "petals" once it’s done. ~~~ HINT: I'd use wooden skewers soaked in water/ green food color, let dry then attach with hot glue a few silk "rose leaves". by Rebecca Eggerstedt

Before you start stringing, you’ll need to attach 3 beads together for the cross part. This is where those glue dots come in handy! You can use regular glue to attach the beads, but I would suggest doing it ahead of time so it’s already dry before you begin. However, if you use glue dots, the kids can do this all by themselves, and the beads attach instantly! by rae

Create a collage frame from multiple frames & make your own design. Used gorilla glue to attach together. Then sand and paint whatever color you would like. I just used the flat paint sample from Home Depot for $2+. Easy and personalized :) just add a saw hook or two to hang on wall :) by divyaa

Try Fragrant Fruit in a Christmas Wreath...dried lemon, lime, and orange slices in any combination you like.  Very pretty.  You could probably use some cinnamon sticks, too, glued on or hanging in the middle under the ribbon. by karin deidre naude

At home photo shoot @Ashley Chesebro, what I would do is try using wither a chair, bed, couch, or even stairs to hold up the blanket, or whatever you want to use. Maybe pin it up with clothes pins, or bag closer(s). Just make sure the backdrop doesn't hit the floor or furniture in a way, that it creates a horizontal line. by iva

To make the fish you just need a little puff of air in small water balloons. Make the knot and voila! Fish! Use your favorite waterproof adhesive (I used superglue because I wasn't sure about hot glue in water) to attach some small googly eyes. Squeeze the fish through the opening, add some water (color with food coloring first), use some adhesive on the top and you have an adorable, portable aquarium! by iris-flower

Waxed leaves... Make sure your leaves are completely dry. Melt some beeswax in a double-boiler. You can use new wax or old candle stubs (optional - add a few drops of cinnamon oil).  When the wax is thoroughly melted, take the leaves by the stem and immerse them, one at a time, in the wax. Hold them over the pot to drip a bit, then lay them on waxed paper to dry. by Sadie Williams

Diy Duct Tape Steampunk Top Hat - I made one of these and I learned as I went. Shape the opening for the head an oval rather than a circle, Rough up the duct tape a bit before you spray paint for better adherence. A glue gun helped the tape stay anywhere there was stress. by imelda
