Friday's Five

My five favorite DIY's for this week -

#1 - Lauren Conrad's post on ten creative pumpkins that you can DIY this season. I love this alternative to carving! I actually made pumpkins similar to the ones below for my fall tablescape (a future post!) easy & so pretty!

#2 - Got some sneakers that could use a touch of sparkle? Check out this DIY post from Stripes & Sequins and see how Grace took a plain pair of sneaks and made them super pretty with some paint, glue and sequins!

#3 - This super chic tray from P.S. - I Made This involved the simplest materials and it would look amazing on a dresser or coffee table!

#4 - These neon satchels bags from the Cambridge Satchel Company have been all over the web, but their $150+ price tag may not be so affordable. No worries! Glitter 'N Glue shows us how to make your own using spray paint!

#5 - Another DIY from Lauren Conrad's site, this peacock costume might be the prettiest one that I have seen for Halloween! I am a huge fan of peacocks and this is just a WOW costume! Here is a sneak peek...

Don't forget to "like" The Pretty Factor on Facebook too!

Those pumpkin decors are so chic. Great alternative to the usual carvings. Unfortunately with kids they like the messiness of cutting open a pumpkin so I will have to do that with them this weekend. Love your Friday Fives - my fave is def. the peacock costume ;)

I dedicated my post to you today, come check it out. Have a great weekend!

Love, love, love, love, and love! The pumpkin idea might be my favorite. I want to decorate pumpkins this year, but in a chic sort of way.. I think I might use Grace from Stripes and Sequin's take on it - glitter!

Glitter pumpkins are the best! I found some gorgeous ones at Target for only $2! It saved me the mess ;)
