Alicia shared this spooky-cute wreath on her instagram account. I love that it feels both crafty and appropriately spooky for the season, with those fun plushy skulls. Plus, the bright bold colors of Dia de los Muertos adds more color than Halloween usually allows!

Nauticus Ikea Hack from Quick Pics -The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

Ashley sent us this amazing project on facebook, with the description: “My first IKEA hack! The original was a Rast three-drawer dresser. The wood was stained with a red oak, and the fronts were wrapped in an embroidered canvas fabric. I’m really happy with how this came out.” Holy wow! I would be too. What a cool update using the Nauticus pack!

Etsy store Cushion Rock

What’s the one thing you wish you knew when you started your store?

I didn’t realize how much detail goes into listing an item… it can be time consuming having to describe every detail about the product. I tend to be a bit disorganized but it is really important that you get that part correct, describe your product in detail…I love doing designs and get so engrossed in my work that I have to tell myself to stop and list some items. I find I get more motivated when I make a sale, then it gets really exciting, especially when someone from the other side of the world buys something… a brilliant feeling!

Geneva Nicole on twitter shared these adorable custom creations, designed by her boys themselves!  They both wanted video game themes, and each created their own custom look. Crafting for kids is way more fun when you can get the kids involved, and you’re sure to make them something they’ll love.

Embroidered Chic Halloween Pillow from Quick Pics - The best and brightest ideas by Urban Threads customers from facebook, flickr, instagram and more.

In theme with this week’s Halloween in July celebrations, I thought I’d pick something spooky to feature on this edition of Quick Pics. Quilted Thimble Cottage on flickr stitched up these simple but chic Halloween pillows with this elegant bat design. Honestly, I think it’s pretty enough to be out all year. Then again, I’d make every day Halloween if I could. Still, this isn’t a bad time to start thinking about decor and especially stitched costumes. It’s just a few short months away!

Michelle on facebook stitched these lovely letter pillows using the Letter Perfect collection to dress up her home. I love how different and colorful each of these pillows are. These would make great gifts for a housewarming or as a special touch for each person in your family. Plus it’s easy to add designs like this on ready made pillow cases. A fast and fun decor project!
