DIY Home Decor and Crafts Tutorial for Fall

While it's still in the upper 90s in the hot South, it doesn't stop me from dreaming of cooler weather, hoodies and nighttime football games.  Unfortunately, I've been too busy melting away in the heat to prep a new "Fall" themed project for you guys. Fortunately, I still have an awesome, DIY pumpkin project that I did last year and a network of awesome, super, crafty friends that have many projects to share with you, so let's roll!
