Party 88! Featured here from London, UK. It’s raining here, but otherwise it is all very interesting and arty.

 

Features Today

First of all, thank you all for linking up such beautiful and interesting projects again last week. I love them. Below are my favorites so I am featuring* them today.

(* If you are featured, be sure to post our ‘I’m featured’- honor badge prominently on your blog. You deserve it!)

1. Recycled wooden 2×4’s made into Splendid, Decorative Pumpkins! 

Polka dots, chevron and swirly flowers.  These made me happy, and I only saw a picture of them. Can imagine how happy they must make Barb from a Second Chance to Dream.

Barb went over the final works of art with an ink stamp pad to age the pumpkins!  So, you can do that too. Delve into your scrapbooking supplies. After your delicious cream-colored paint has dried, of course.

For other Halloween ideas, be sure to see our Halloween Central!

 

2. Crocheted Rag Rug

Connie is so endearing how she first apologizes for her (lack of) crochet skills. And I am showing you her DIY rag rug precisely because of this reason. It really IS simple to make your own rag rugs. 

This luxurious looking bath mat caught ‘on fire’ on the internet, however, personally, I think that rugs made from sheets, or even better, t-shirt yarn (recycled t-shirts cut in strips) is even better as they fray less.

Crocheting gives you a certain cottage look. If you’d cut small strips like this eco-friendly bath rug here, then you get a high pole rug.  You can also weave the strips, as I’ve shown here in this woven  rag rug.

  1. Gosh thanks for featuring my rug! That was a surprise. I love my rugs :) Thanks for the party.

  2. Thanks Rose!

  3. Hi Rose!

    Some day I’ll learn to crochet, again. I did when I was a teen…I made those granny squares and helped my mom with some afghans…but I remember nothing. Haha!! Maybe the next time I’ll learn to do something a little more significant. ;)

    Hope you’re enjoying your time in London. I’m guessing it’s very pretty there in the fall.

    Cheers!
