  1. Must have been super fun being on Fox news! Thats sooo cool! I am more of a papercrafter but these halloween crafts are super cute!

  2. My favorite craft is typical something I can frame. I usually am inspired by a store made item and then I go and figure out how to do it myself.

  3. My favorite craft are simpler ones that don’t require a lot of artistic talent. Just simple, cute, and fun with the kids as well!

  4. Paper crafts and mixed media are a couple of my favorite types of crafts. Thank you for the chance to win!

  5. I like making paper crafts, but I also like trying new things. I’m going to try this pompom pumpkin garland – it looks really easy to do, and quick, and doesn’t have to be extremely precise, which is right up my alley! Thanks for the ideas!

  6. I love making anything with the kid’s hand and footprints! For Halloween- ghost footprints, Christmas- reindeer, etc!

  7. One of my favorite crafts is to make personalized Christmas cards with both my son and daughter. They both have different ideas on what Christmas on a card should look like hahahha 🙂

  8. I love creating cards by hand. Making each one custom to the person I am giving it to makes it extra full of love.

  9. I like to make a lot of different crafts but my favorites are cards and party decorations and favors. I have two little girls so that means we celebrate holidays in a big way. I also help out in their classroom so we like to craft!

  10. What a fun news segment! Of course I love any craft that involves sewing, and I do a bit of jewelry making and card making. When my son was young we did lots of crafts and especially liked shrink art.

  11. I don’t love to plan on creating crafts but when I sit with my kids to create something for school I always end up enjoying myself.

  12. I love to spend my spare time sewing with pretty fabric, so my favorite crafts are with needle, thread and fabric!

  13. I like to make little “add ons” for gift packages hoping they’ll be kept for hanging from a Christmas Tree

  14. We have arts and crafts all around our home from the living room to the garage and the backyard to the pop up camper! We’ve even done a float for the local winter parade! Seems like we are always working on something.

  15. My favorite crafts are those I make with my Muffins (aka grandkids). Painting, paper crafts, felt, fabric, clay pots, anything we can use to make something decorative and fun.

  16. I love creating memories with my kids. With that being said every holiday I do enjoy making crafts that entail their handprints or footprints

  17. I am not a real crafty person because I am just not good at it. However I enjoy counted cross stitch occasionally. I love that garland!

  18. I enjoy a lot of different type crafts. But I especially enjoy creating something for my daughters and it being a surprise. I have made different things for them with pictures of a certain time in their life and they always love it.

  19. My favorite thing about fall is all the activities! From pumpkin patches, to crafting, to cider making and baking all sorts of yummy treats!

  20. Love FALL!!! From the pumpkin patches, apple picking and cider making, the baking, the crafting, bonfires and football!

  21. My favorite thing about autumn is the weather. It’s so humid and rainy all summer nowadays where I live that it’s wonderful to get cooler and less humid weather. I also like autumn because of family birthdays and Halloween and Thanksgiving.

  22. Cute crafts. Thank you! I’m originally a scrapbooker but love all paper crafts and fun crafty things.

  23. Oops. Forgot the autumn part of my comment. The colors and activities are perfect for scrapbooking and family fun.

  24. My favorite autumn activity is going apple and pumpkin picking with my daughter.

  25. I love that it is the start of the baking season. Pies, cookies, cakes, breads, and lots of pumpkin spice.

  26. My favorite thing about fall is the change in temps, it gets cool and so nice out. The nights are cool and I love to cuddle in a blanket during the fall.

  27. I love so many things about autumn. I love the changing colors of the leaves, the crispness in the air, the scent of the wood burning in the fireplace, the excitement of the upcoming holidays and football season.
