One of the year's most family-oriented celebrations, the September Harvest Festival is a great time to celebrate and give thanks to the hard work of farmers and the bountiful produce of the earth. Though in today's modern times the actual harvesting is limited to those who actually own farms, this celebration is still a great time to get together with friends and family to serve as a thanksgiving to every blessing that one receives.

To get in tune with the festivities, it's a fantastic idea to sprinkle your house with one or two decorations to celebrate this wonderful time of the year. Decorations will get your kids excited about activities that are about to take place, and if you're having a celebration at your house, will definitely add that Harvest Festival spirit to your party.

There are several simple things that you can make on your own to make your house ready for the Festival. Felt, a non-woven fabric, is one of the most versatile craft materials that you can find. Their many, many uses are endless and there's practically no wastage whatsoever. Every little felt that you cut can be used and they're very easy to manipulate. They come in all colours, and can be used on clothes, accessories, toys, and absolutely anything

The corn pencil holder or you could use it as a flower vase or a table centrepiece, a great little project for your children
