The holidays in America are supposed to kick-off with Thanksgiving, but I beg to differ. Halloween is exploding in the U.S., and I really mark it as the beginning of the season. Craft season, at least. My first craft of the season is this cute Jack O'Lantern pin. It's made with felt, ribbon, and beads, combining a few different kinds of materials to produce a quality piece.
You don't need massive sewing skills for this project, it's just a bit of cutting and a few stitches. The result is a pin that looks adorable. Make a Jack O'Lantern Pin
