5 Fall Sign for Beginners
By The Magnolia Housewife
Put your Cricut to good use by making this stunning rope framed display. Both the rope and small pumpkins can be purchased from the Dollar Tree.
What is a Cricut? These cutting machines allow you to cut incredibly intricate designs into all manner of hobby craft materials, such as wood, paper, and leather. However, they won’t hold up against more durable wood types (such as Pine or Plywood). So its best you use your Cricut on thin woods such as Balsa wood.

Even absolute beginners will find this craft idea a cinch, as this tutorial will guide you in turning wood board into something amazing.

Using wood slices to make this unusual (yet stunningly creative) door wreath is just brilliant!
