How To Plant Vegetable Seeds
To plant your Vegetable Starts, you can choose to either stand over an empty tile of land or dig a hole with a shovel, then open your inventory to plant!
While using the Island Designer app on your NookPhone to create dirt tiles on the ground makes for great aesthetics in your pumpkin farm, its not required to plant and grow pumpkins. You can grow them on any piece of grass!
Use Watering Can To Flowers
You can use the Watering Can to water your flowers. However, this does not significantly change the speed at which flowers grow! Perhaps watering a plant has something to do with cross pollination – we will provide updates once we’ve established a pattern.
No Need To Water On Rainy Days
When it’s raining, all the flowers will automatically be watered. You don’t need to use the watering can on these days.

How Do Shrubs Work
While shrubs in New Horizons bloom like flowers and include various types of flowers, like azaleas and hydrangeas, they don’t work quite like the regular flowers you’re used to. Unlike regular flower plants, shrubs are solid, meaning you can’t walk through them. They’re also seasonal, meaning they’ll only bloom during specific parts of the year for the rest of the year, they’ll just be a plain bush.
How Do I Approach Fall Decorating
I always keep it simple and rely on 3 main elements to create a cozy, fall feel.
- natural elements like pumpkins, acorns and gourds
- lots of textures – baskets and woven rugs add a ton of warmth to a space
- soft and cozy elements – you can’t go wrong with a few cozy throws and pillows
So, with the cottage all ready for fall, let’s start the tour in our front entryway.
Right when you walk in our front door you’ll notice a few paint changes.
The front door was dressed in a darker color and the main entry was transformed with a cheater board and batten wall and new dramatic paint.
I love how the dark color of the wall sets off the antique pine cabinet.
This is a really small, and hardworking space so just by adding a bit of texture, with bunny tails and a DIY Indian corn wreath, and a sweet mini pumpkin we’ve created a welcoming entrance to our fall home.

Storing Your Putka Pod Pumpkin Tree
If you want to keep your putka pod fall craft to display another year you need to store them away in a labeled, airtight container.
Make sure that it’s something that mice can’t get into…because they love putka pods.
Place your container in a dry and cool place, where you’ll be able to find them come next fall.
I can’t tell you how many times I put stuff away only to forget about it the following year.
So with my pumpkin trees done, the fall season has begun at the cottage. Now we just have to get the weather to cooperate and cool down another 25 degrees or so.
Diy Clothes Rod For A Closet
How to make a DIY clothes rod for your closet with a scrap piece of copper. An easy DIY project that gives you hanging space for clothes in a small closet.
I was happy to have all of the big projects done, like the pretty wallpaper, but one small detail was missing. I needed something in the new closet that would hold our wet, clean clothes so they could easily dry.
My solution was to use a sliding clothes rod.
I had the idea to put one in the closet way before we started the powder room construction. I just never got around to it.

Sandwich Maker A Useful Kitchen Tool:
Sandwich Maker is an excellent kitchen tool it reduces the lots of time and effort in making the sandwich.
I recently purchased Hamilton Beach Sandwich Maker, and I must say it is one of the best kitchen tools that helps to reduce my time spending in the kitchen.
Whenever I feel tired or bored to cook this sandwich maker is so helpful for me to make lunch or dinner for my family in five to ten minutes. I just stuff the bread slices with some vegetables and cheese or grilled chicken for the quick and filling sandwich and make lunch in five minutes using a sandwich maker.

Making A Pumpkin Wood Sign
I hauled the door out of the shed, removed the hinges and random screws and got ready to cut it down.
Part of the old door would be the base of the sign with the pumpkin front and center so I had to cut it down.
As usual I kept this super simple so I didn’t do any measuring.
I just placed the felt pumpkin on the door where I wanted it and used the circular saw to cut down the door.
There were a couple of braces on the back to keep the tongue and groove together but they were in bad shape so I had to supplement them.
I took two pieces of wood from my scrap pile and wood screws and screwed each board to it.
Quick note: make sure the wood screws are not longer than the thickness of the wood door and support.
Now that my sign was built it was time to paint it.

There Are Several Kinds
The game offers a rather charming variety of different flowers with their own adorable, unique looks. As of this article, the game has introduced cosmos, roses, tulips, pansies, lilies, windflowers, hyacinths and mums.
There’s also a chance that in the future players will get to see other flowers introduced into the game, namely violets, which could be a potentially returning species from previous games.
How To Water Plants
You may have noticed a watering pail in the corner of your garden and possibly even a prompt to water your flowers when the ground gets dry. But how can you tell when the flowers need watering? This is actually pretty simple. If you happen to walk into your garden and see some of the plots have lighter colored soil than others, these are the dry plots. When you tap on them, youll see the option to water those plots. Im not sure what would happen if you ignore watering your plots, but I assume it either slows the growth or causes them not to flower. Either way, its probably smart to check in on your garden whenever you make your visits to the game.

Diy Craft Storage Cabinet
How to easily create a DIY craft storage cabinet from an antique armoire to store tools, craft and sewing supplies.
We live in a small stone cottage that was built in 1946. It has loads of charm but not much in the way of storage.
In order for us to keep clutter at bay we’ve had to get creative.
The solution I usually turn to is using cabinets. Dressers, chests, armoires…they are perfect for hiding away our necessities and clutter.
I’ve been busy turning one of our guest bedrooms into my work studio so I needed a storage space for my tools, paint and crafting supplies.
I have a beloved antique armoire in the room but it was only set up to store clothing and linens.
This beauty came from an antique shop in a tiny town in Georgia. I looked at it for weeks before I finally pulled the trigger and I’m so glad that I did.
It’s definitely served its purpose and because of that it’s moved with us to 4 different houses.
I’ve always kept my craft supplies and tools scattered around downstairs in the basement, which was pretty inconvenient since most of my projects take place upstairs.
So creating a dedicated space just for my stuff feels like a luxury.
I was a bit nervous altering my favorite antique but all of the modifications took place on the inside so it really wasn’t a big deal.
This was a super simple project that just took 30 minutes to do.
In the end I had storage shelves, rods for ribbon storage and a few fabric covered bins to contain my supplies.

Painting A Pumpkin Sign
I wanted my pumpkin to be orange, naturally, so I used the orange spray paint first.
I concentrated mostly in the center, where the pumpkin would go, and didn’t worry about getting the edges.
You’ll notice that I didn’t sand any of the chippy white paint before I started painting.
We’ll talk more about that in a bit.
Anyway…after the orange paint dried, I placed the felt pumpkin in the middle and painted the whole sign with the black chalk paint, doing two coats.
After the black paint dried I removed the pumpkin.
Like I said I loved the chippy paint so I deliberately left it when I started this project.
This is a rustic pumpkin sign after all, so I just took a medium grit sandpaper and lightly sanded some spots all over the sign to expose the chippy paint.
The sanding brought out some of the white, orange and the original wood.
Perfect rustic fall charm!
My pumpkin sign was done and it had just the right amount of rustic-ness to it.
The more I looked at it though, the more I thought that it was missing something.
Nothing that I little stenciling couldn’t fix.
Really, you could stop here and hang it up or prop it against a wall but I went a step further.
Making A Sliding Closet Rod
Once they were dry I was ready to start installing my sliding rod.
The first thing we had to do was to determine the length of the rod. We did this by taking the measurement from the back wall of the closet to the outside trim.
With the measurement taken I used a pipe cutter to cut the copper pipe down to size. I used the file to smooth the cut end and remove the burrs.
Next, I attached the copper tube cap on the end of the pipe that was going to be sticking out of the closet.
Mounting the copper tube straps was our next step. We screwed the first strap, the one closest to the outside of the closet, in place about an inch back from the front edge .
The next strap installed was the one closest to the back of the closet. The goal was to make sure the pipe was supported when it was pulled out so we took half the distance of the pipe length and mounted that tube strap 15″ from the front strap.
You also want to make sure that the back tube strap is level with the front strap.
Next, we slid the copper pipe in the tube straps. Then we mounted 2 more straps between the the front and back strap.
The straps were mounted equal distance between the front and back strap. They also need to be centered up and down so that the pipe could move freely.
We ended up using between 2 and 3 washers under each side of each strap.
Benjamin Moore Halo Undertones
Back to basics for a second, what are undertones in paint anyway, and why are they important?
Paint colors are mixed by putting different parts of the color wheel together.
For example, if you create a beige with more than an equal proportion of blue in it, it will become a blue-toned beige. That makes sense, right?
Aside from our primary colors, red, blue, and yellow, all colors will have some form of undertone to them.
Understanding what those undertones are is vital for:
- Color Coordination: If you notice a specific color combo isn’t feeling or looking right, it’s probably due to clashing undertones. Undertones should work together harmoniously.
- Color Psychology: Do you want a refreshing neutral in your bathroom or a warm, inviting neutral in your bedroom? You can achieve all this by using undertones to your advantage.
Color theory 101 aside, what undertones does Benjamin Moore Halo have?
BM Halo is an off-white neutral with subtle green undertones.
Depending on your lighting, it can look very greige .
The cool green undertone makes it ideally suited for tranquil environments.
