Skinny scarf turned into a Halloween pumpkin for the season

I have an entire tote of skinny scarves. I was addicted to knitting them as I loved the instant gratification they offered and I loved wearing them. I miss them and thought I should figure out what else I could use them for when I wasn't wearing them. Well, this fuzzy multi-tone orange skinny scarf made a great pumpkin.

The best part of this project is it is made in about 1 minute and can be undone in about 30 seconds. If you want to wear it there is no damage to the scarf.
Simply roll up the scarf and pop a few pins in to keep the end rolled up. I stuck a small piece of a branch in the top to form a stem.

I can't wait to see what else I can come up with with the 4,000 (not really) skinny scarves in the stash.

F.U.B.A.R. 4 Ever conversation hearts - Adult coloring page

I have a military Dad and I grew up with this word (initialism) not knowing the spelled out meaning but knowing it meant messed up. I designed a F.U.B.A.R. in conversation hearts cross stitch back in 2008 that you can see below and I thought I'd design an adult coloring page.

Yarn ball pumpkin fall decoration inspired by Conan O'Brien's Bill Tull Holiday Tips segment

If you watch the Conan O'Brien show and have seen the Bill Tull Tips segment you will appreciate the simplicity of this fall decoration that consists of yarn balls and sticks to make pumpkins. Literally this project took me less than 5 minutes!
Simply go out to your yard or your nearest tree and clip a branch into small segments.


Go to your yarn stash and pull out your orange balls of yarn. Tuck the label inside/under the ball and pop the stick in the center top.

Boom, pumpkin!

P.S. if you wanted to get fancy, cut shapes out of black felt and attach them on to the yarn balls to form Jack-o-lanterns.

When the season is over simply wrap the label back over the yarn ball and return it to the stash zone and pop the sticks in the yard.
