autumn is a wonderful time of the year. the days are getting colder and the leaves are turning color and we are spending more time indoors. creating a warm and cozy space inside our homes is my goal during this time of year. truthfully, decorating for the fall doesn’t have to be a big commitment, you can fluff up your home by just buying a few pumpkins and bringing in beautiful fall branches with colorful leaves. but, if you have the time and inspiration to decorate, i like to clear out a space and just build fresh with all your seasonal decor. taking out your current decor, starts you with a clean slate, and allows you to think out of your decorating comfort zone. you will begin to create things you never knew you could. here are a few of the projects i have been working on around our house.
~ a funny note about the nester ~
when our two children were little and we visited a local pumpkin patch. our older whined that he couldn’t move our wagon full of pumpkins. so, our younger child, grabbed a hold of the handle and tried to move the wagon only to fall on her bottom. this didn’t stop her, she immediately stood up and took the handle again and quickly moved the very heavy wagon! she’s got gumption!
printing on pumpkins ~ i have a blog post where i show how to print on a faux pumpkin. it is nice to have these pumpkins in your fall supplies. here is the link: pumpkin project
autumn banner ~ here is the instructions link on how to make this project: autumn banner
leaves ~ these branches are from our yard. i love how some of them dried green!
foliage ~ these branches were from our pile of yard debris. i must admit that these branches were cut in our spring pruning. it definitely is interesting that the leaves haven’t fallen off, and that maybe due to the fact that the branches were cut green? if you cut branches and the leaves start dropping off, go with it. enjoy the few days or weeks of beautiful fall leaves inside your home!
this is my fall table decor. i basically decorated with white and brown items. by limiting my color palette, it is created a simple and elegant table. i was wanting a more natural and quiet look. here is the link to the blog post: fall decorating ideas i hope i have inspired you to decorate your home for the fall. i would love to hear about your decorating tricks, so leave a comment. thanks so much for dropping by for a visit!
