KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below!

Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a B…

DIY Wine Cork Pumpkins


My husband and I love wine, and we love fall! So these wine cork pumpkins were a welcome addition to our Autumn decor. They look perfect next to our wine barrel cheese board, where we keep our wine. There are so many holiday crafts that I always think about making but don't really get around to, like the bag full of Autumn wreath supplies sitting on our bedroom floor. But I knew these wine cork pumpkins would be so easy to make, and they were! It was fun too. I'd forgotten how therapeutic craft projects can be.

All you need to make these pumpkins are the corks, of course, some paint, faux leaves, and glue. I used tacky glue, because I couldn't find my hot glue gun. Tacky glue works just as well, though it takes longer to dry, and it dries clear.


I used 19 corks for the larger pumpkin and 12 for the smaller one. Including 2 more for the stems, you need 33 corks total. If you don't have that many on hand, you can buy corks from a craft store or online here >. You can even purchase recycled wine corks to get that old-word look with the wine-stained tips and decorative labels. I'll leave additional shopping links below the post too!



And yes, I used my daughter's cheap Dollar Store watercolor paints. It turned out much better than acrylic paints, in my opinion, as it allowed for the cork color and texture to show through.


After you've painted one end of the corks, start by gluing the corks together into rows and let dry. Then glue each row together. Let it dry with the orange side facing up.

If you do have a hot glue gun, go for it! Otherwise you can pick up tacky glue for a few dollars. It takes a full day for it to dry all the way, but once it dries, it holds up very well!


Once it's dry enough to place it right side up, use a few dabs of glue to attach the leaf and stem to each pumpkin. I painted my stems with the green watercolor paint.

And that is it! So easy! If you make this fun Fall DIY, I'd love to see it. Share it on Instagram with the hashtag #KCLCrafts. I'll regram my favorites.:)
