A Romantic Handmade Fall for bHome

Hello there,

Come on in to my craft room where I’m romancing fall.

This year I am totally smitten with little fabric pumpkins… and pretty fall colours.

I’ve even moved away from my usual colour palette and have embraced the soft and muted shades of grey through to plum.


Let me show you how to achieve a romantic fall look with easy handmade projects. Click to see full tutorials or PIN for later.


It’s easy to be swept up in the romance of making handmade pumpkins and delicate silk roses/peonies, because everywhere I look online fall is trending.

I’m daydreaming about apples… pumpkin spice… and falling leaves.

Plump little pumpkins in pretty floral Tilda fabrics certainly add a cosy feel to my craft room, but they are still light enough to be perfect for the early subtle changes in the season.

I’ve been completely charmed by fall this year! What about you?

This gorgeous autumnal change has been contained within my creative space…

For outside my window, spring has bathed us in sunshine and warmth. Bees are buzzing enthusiastically from one flower to another and it’s a season brimming with new life.

I’m definitely transcending the seasons…

living in spring, while my heart belongs to fall.

Did you notice the other new project hanging about the craft room this week?

New design by Kerryann English - handpainted fabric Barn Owls. So pretty for fall and winter decorating!

Hmm…. my obsession with owls continues!!

I’ve been playing around drafting some new patterns for different types of owls. Having not made Barn Owls before, I made a few practice ones to get a feel for the dimensions and painting the faces. I’m not sure they are quite right yet, but I’m enjoying the process.

I still get a giggle every time I pass by my craft room and catch sight of these guys hanging about on the shelf. I think they are watching me!
