Welcome to Handmade Monday, our link up for all things handmade. Crafts, decor ideas and recipes are all welcome here: if it’s handmade then we are happy for you to share it. This is a great place to find a few new creative ideas and inspiration too.
I went to the BlogOnUK conference on Saturday, and was so pleased to meet my fellow UK craft bloggers Vicky from Vicky Myers Creations and Claire from Pillar Box Blue and Picture Box Blue in real life. As well as enjoying each others company we attended a few workshops on things like making reel, photography tips and SEO advice.
Now let’s take a look at the features from last week’s Handmade Monday. Click through on the photos to see the original posts.
Please remember if you want to pin any of these ideas please make sure you click through via the photo to the original project.
All the features this week are pumpkins. I didn’t plan it that way and I don’t normally have any sort of theme in mind for features but that’s just the way it’s turned out this week!
These terracotta effect pumpkins look so expensive, WM Design House shows you how to get this lovely paint effect.
Allyson from Southern Sunflowers has made these beautiful pumpkins from little wooden candle holders she picked up at a thrift store. They are so sweet.
Thriving with Less upcycled some very basic looking plastic pumpkins and gave them a lovely new look using plaster cloth.
Congratulations to you all There is a "YAY I was featured" button over here if you want to add one to your blog.
A like on social media, a comment or share is an easy way for us all to help to support one another so please do take a moment to visit some of the other projects linked up this week. It’s not mandatory to be able to join in here, there’s no easy way to check if you did but it costs nothing but a few minutes of your time.
The rules for Handmade Monday are very simple:
Did you make it? Yes - then yay! We'd love to see it
Add the link to a specific post, not your main blog url
You can link up to 3 posts each week but try to make sure it's not something that you've shared here before
Mingle - visit some other links - comment - share - be social
CAN I REMIND EVERYONE THAT HANDMADE MONDAY IS NOT A PLACE FOR SELLING SO NO LINKS TO ETSY OR OTHER SELLING PAGES, THEY WILL ALWAYS BE REMOVED. THANKS
If you are not sure of anything more details can be found here.
At Handmade Monday the links are shown in a random order so it’ll look different each time you pop by.
