Fall is the season for book lovers.  Brisk winds howling through the trees, a hot pot of tea bubbling on the stove, and a cozy blanket that smells like your grandma’s attic…it’s the dream for most bookworms – at least for me! – and I look forward to this time of year pretty much all the damn time.

There are few things that could add to a blustery fall day complete with a good book and a good cup of coffee, but these fall must-have’s might be worth trying!  So put another log on the fire and have fun shopping these 14 Fall Must-Have’s for Book Lovers!

princess-bride-coasters

The Princess Bride Coasters

Materials:

Instructions:

First, paint your coasters.  These are just painted with one coat of paint.  You can add another coat for a richer color, but I just stopped after 1 coat.

princess-bride-coasters3

Cut out your images.  I edited mine using a photo editing software to be a 3 in. x 3 in. square.

Paint a LIGHT coat of Mod Podge on your coaster.  Adhere the image.  Paint over with Mod Podge to secure.  You can cover the entire coaster with Mod Podge to protect the paint layer, too.

If desired, add felt feet on bottom of coaster.

Pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy watching The Princess Bride!

Harry Potter House Bears

Founded by Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – the educational system in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series – is divided into four houses or communities, each named after one of the founding members of the school.

When students come to Hogwarts, they are sorted into one of four houses, so labeled Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.  Each house has its own qualities and dynamics and students are sorted based on whether or not they share those qualities with any given house.

Each house has its own mascot and house colors.  Gryffindor’s sport maroon and gold wearables, while Hufflepuff students wears black and yellow.  Ravenclaws are silver and blue and Slytherins are green and silver.

Whether it’s walking the halls of Hogwarts or attending a Quidditch game, each student is extremely loyal to their house and they wear their house colors proudly…and these little teddy bears are no exception!

Each wearing a turtle neck in the Hogwarts house colors, these little crocheted teddy bears are beaming with house pride!
