Let your creative side shine through this adorable hat and your little one will love showing it off knowing its one of a kind! For a little girl I would highly recommend our Lace Weight Silk Yarn; Autumn Dyelot 2. This yarn is full of vibrant fall colors with the added pink touch!

Set this fun project up for them and teach them how to crochet their own finger puppets! What kid doesn’t like puppets! I am sure by the end of the evening there will be an awesome puppeteer show for all the parents to see! I suggest using the Lace weight silk yarn; Any of the autumn colors or the Catskill fireworks.

6. Gobble Coaster

In my house, coasters are a highly important thing; we have them everywhere! We do not want our surfaces ruined and most of the coaster we have are boring ones we snagged from a restaurant, unless I buy the cute one. J This one is adorable and who wouldn’t want to put their cold refreshment on this. I can sure see the guys in my family placing their drink of choice on something like this and I can’t wait to make it!

7. Crochet fall wreath

I love a good wreath, and this is most definitely one of the cutest I have seen! Welcome your guests with perfect front door style! The little pumpkins and crochet bow make the wreath complete! I would love to play with the colors and see what combinations could be done.

8. Corner Granny Afghan

This afghan is perfect to drape over that love seat that everyone fights for. I would love to curl up in my favorite chair, with my favorite person and wrap this around us! The colors are amazing and after stuffing myself with the delicious turkey dinner this is exactly what I want. Nothing says creativity like a beautiful blanket does!

9. Acorn and Leaf Garland with mini crocheted pumpkins

Garland is definitely the hot new décor to always have in your house to go along with whatever season or theme your house is in. And for some reason acorns and min pumpkins are one of the cutest things that I have seen! I would love to have this hanging over our fireplace! Show this beautiful piece off when all your guests sit by the fire for a family tradition!
