6 Autumn Apple Inspired DIY Projects
Somehow it’s almost October. I don’t know quite when that happened. I, like many of you, I imagine, feel like it’s February. But time marches on. This week in Kentucky, the weather has really been absolutely gorgeous. Clear skies, highs in the 70’s and virtually no humidity or rain.
It has me thinking about Apple picking this week. We used to go every year when my kids were smaller. Now that we’re empty-nesters, we haven’t been making as much effort to do things like that quite as much. We need to be better at that.
I feel like I’ve been spotting a million apple themed projects online recently. Here are a few that caught my eye.
Sweet Apples Baby Quilt Pattern
I’m a big fan of Ellis & Higgs’s patterns. She is a fellow Riley Blake Designer and always comes up with the cutest ideas for “picture quilts”. This Sweet Apples Pattern is traditionally pieced and would be cute as a baby quilt or even as a pillow.
Caramel Apple Dip Neighbor Gift Idea
Old Salt Farm is sharing a recipe for what looks like a scrumptious caramel apple dip. If you know someone who could use a pick me up this week, a jar of this and a bag of fresh apples might just lift their spirits a bit.
Apple Orchard Sweater
Both of my college girls have been begging me to buy this Apple Orchard sweater for them. I haven’t, but I have been tempted. I love the fun twist on a traditional fair isle sweater (they also have really cute fall leaves sweaters!)
White Chocolate Caramel Apples
These Caramel Apples are one of our favorite family treats! We usually make them the first weekend in October when our church traditionally hosts a special broadcast that we watch from home.
If you’re feeling creative it’s also fun to turn the caramel apples in to Halloween Creatures!
Autumn Bucket List Printables
Speaking of Apples, drinking apple cider made our Autumn Bucket List a few years ago. If you’d like to download this Bucket List Printable for yourself you can find out more about the project on our blog.
Okay, this is not apple-related, but I’m going to bust out the Halloween decor this weekend. I can’t wait to pull out my Halloween quilts, especially this Tic Tac Cat quilt. It’s the newest one in my ‘collection” and I plan to wash and dry it this weekend so it’s nice and soft and snuggly and ready for Fall. (Floating Witch Hat tutorial found here)
Any fun Fall plans this weekend?
