Oh, candy corn: every September, I get so excited about it, and then I eat a few handfuls and spend the afternoon with a disgusting waxy sugar headache, cursing the day it was created. I’ve been trying to steer clear of candy corn this year, but cookies are a whole different story, and I love the idea of translating the charming, iconic candy corn design into a festive sugar cookie. So cute. [Sweet Sugar Belle]

This month I’m hoping to fill every possible moment with pumpkin-themed activities: pumpkin carving parties, pumpkin patch adventures, pumpkin dessert potlucks, pumpkin-launching catapult shenanigans, etc. And I didn’t know it until now, but none of these activities would be complete without the glorious presence of a PUMPKIN KEG. Apparently it’s super easy to make your own, although the tutorial recommends Sam Adams Octoberfest beer, while I think the occasion clearly calls for a pumpkin ale. But hey, if you really want to get the party started, fill it with pumpkin pie-infused vodka. Cheers to fall! [Celebrations]

The other day, my friend Becca and I were talking about how much we miss being in school sometimes, particularly those moments when you’re sitting in class and have some huge epiphany about society or media or social justice and you’re like, “Oh my god, I have to tell the world RIGHT NOW.” Although I won’t be joining those of you headed back to campus this month, I will be enthusiastically stocking up on school office supplies, and thanks to this clever tutorial, I can’t wait to turn a couple 99-cent composition books into chalkboard notebooks, perfect for recipes, random brainstorms, and world-changing manifestos.

One of my interior design dreams has always been to have an old school card catalog in my house. I’d love to use it for organizing recipes, jewelry, craft supplies, or just general storage. I could spend hours scouring garage sales to find an antique one, plunk down some serious cash for a reproduction, or better yet, I could craft my own. This tutorial uses IKEA drawers, but you could use any light-wood drawers–just add some wood stain and brass labels and ta-da! You’ve got a fabulous storage space guaranteed to impress your librarian friends! [The Painted Hive]

Weekend Project: Bellini Rose Petal Lollipops

We were totally obsessed with boozy popsicles this summer, but once the weather cools down, we’re going to have to put down our cocktails-on-a-stick and reach for a treat that won’t give us a brainfreeze. A worthy replacement for fall? Homemade lollipops! These bellini-flavored lollipops would be perfect for wedding favors, party treats, or just as an exceedingly glamorous way to get your afternoon sugar hit. Let the licking begin! [Etsy Weddings]

If you’re anything like us, your wine-drinking skills probably merit a trophy or two (examples: Most Improved Pallet and Best Balancing of Wine Glass On The Edge Of The Bathtub), so why not give yourself that trophy you deserve, in the form of a quirky DIY wine cork? If you still have your t-ball participation trophies floating around the attic, great, but if not, you’ll be able to find cheap (and delightfully flamboyant) trophies at your local thrift store for a buck or two. The only other supplies needed are a fresh cork and superglue. Oh, and some Merlot to sip while you get crafty. [Country Living]

If you’re in need of a new hanging lampshade and looking for an excuse to play with balloons and glue this weekend, do I have the project for you! This whirled yarn lampshade is not only a striking piece of home decor, it looks fairly simple to make (yes, really), as long as you don’t mind getting a bit sticky. And just imagine all the opportunities it will give you to say, “Oh, the lampshade? Why thank you, I made it myself!” [Pickles]

I love the cap toe shoe trend that’s happening right now: white ballet flats with black toes; black stiletto slingbacks with silver toes; pink pumps with yellow toes–I’ll take a pair of each, please! For some reason the idea that you can DIY your own cap toe shoes totally blew my mind, even though it’s one of the simplest projects I’ve ever come across. All you need is tape, spray paint, and a simple pair of shoes ready to get the cap toe treatment. As you can see, neon toes look fabulous on tan pumps, but you could try whatever color combo worked best with your wardrobe. If you give this DIY a try, send me a pic of your finished footwear at winona@thefrisky.com! [Green Wedding Shoes]

My favorite craft projects involve taking a very ordinary material and transforming it into something totally unexpected. For example, maybe you take 10 washers (you know, those round discs found at hardware stores), paint them with a bright nail polish, and create a very of-the-moment geometric bib necklace that would look right at home in the pages of a high fashion magazine. So cool. Click here to learn how. [By Wilma]

Weekend Project: Make Your Own Himmeli Mobile!

I love adding 3D design elements to a room but I hate adding clutter to surfaces, so I’m totally on board with any cool thing that hangs from the ceiling. Pretty sure this himmeli mobile is the definition of “cool thing that hangs from the ceiling.” Commonly used as Christmas decorations in Finland, these unique geometric designs would look great in an office or living room, and all you need to make your own is colorful coffee straws, string, scissors (or “siccors,” in Lochte speak), and a needle. Now go on and make your high school math teacher proud! [The Red Jet]
