This year, I wanted to decorate for Fall completely differently. I was just ready for a change! Have you ever been there? I decided that I wanted my accessories neutral — a mix of whites, off-whites, ivory, and natural colors. But, I didn’t have ANY neutral pumpkins. They were all various shades of ORANGE. So, that meant one thing — I had to go shopping for some neutral pumpkins. But after scouring my favorite stores for Fall decor, I found that not only were most mini pumpkins $1-$3/each, most of them weren’t even a neutral color! I was NOT going to pay an arm and leg for Fall accessories! That meant I had to get creative. So, I chose to spray-paint all of my pumpkins…all of the ones I already had and then search all my local thrift stores for more!
I found an inexpensive way to switch out decor for the holidays, DIY candle wraps! I needed fall decor to put on mantel this year, I had three plain candles already up there so I decided why not embellish them rather than buy something new?
While freshly carved pumpkins will always be a traditional Halloween decoration, more and more people are choosing to skip the muss and fuss of real pumpkins and are instead choosing fake pumpkins for their porches and homes. Some fake pumpkins look just like the real thing, but they're easier to work with and they can last from year to year. There are different types of fake pumpkins and tons of ways to decorate them, so before you get started, take a look at these important tips.

Our family room mantel is my favorite one in the house. We spend a lot of time in here and I didn't want anything formal or stuffy on the mantel. So there's nothing fancy here. Just some thrift store finds and found items along with a couple of small new things.
Every year, the Dollar Tree has styrofoam orange and green pumpkins for sale around this time of year. Last year, I purchased a few and spray painted them navy. This year, I wanted to re-use them but give them a fresh look with scrap fabric.

Pumpkins make such cute fall decor, don't they? Especially these itty bitty little ones! This pumpkin garland has the cutest tiny pumpkins strung along it. And you can paint them to match whatever fall decor you like to use. All my stuff is the typical autumn color pallet. But I think these would be adorable painted white with a gold stem! Swoon... I might have to make another garland like that. Read on to see how I made mine!
I'm late for me on getting my outside fall décor done, but I finally did, so thought I would share. I listed this as costing $25, but it would be more if I had to buy the hay, and if I didn't know the guy we bought the pumpkins and squash from, who gave us a good deal of them.
This is the perfect fall craft for a girls night, or even just to do by yourself! It was quick and easy to put together and looks so adorable displayed with the rest of the fall decor.

A few blogging friends and I participate in a monthly DIY challenge where we purchase the same item and then each decorate it with our own unique spin. This month our item was faux craft pumpkins from Michael's. I decided to do a gold and white glittering ombre effect on mine.

Hey y'all...I'm so excited about today's project! This is another project that I created in less than 5 minutes! If you have been following us for awhile, it is no secret that I love feathers. I started collecting them as a little girl. Each one is different and unique and has special meaning to me. I subtly incorporate them throughout my home decor - in an antique inkwell, on top of a book or in a seasonal display like my Fall Coffee Table.
I whitewashed my brick hearth and painted my mantel and paneling above in a creamy white. I'm still thrilled with the result! I just gave my family room a new look for fall and added a few thrift store finds.
Two wooden salad bowls with a tiny hinge between them can be turned into a fun little trinket box, and in this case- one that looks like a pumpkin!.

My parents live in a very wooded area with an abundance of pine cones and every year my dad likes to collect the nice looking ones and give them to neighbors and friends to craft with.

I can't believe it's almost Fall! I hate to see the warmer weather leave us, but I do love bringing in all the warmth and textures for the cooler months. Since it's still 90 degrees outside and not quite Fall, here's a little pre-Fall home tour.
I was happy to be a part of a fall home tour this year. I'm not traditionally drawn to fall colors, so I decorate with what I like and add layers, texture, warmth, and lots and lots of greenery! Happy fall!
I was recently searching Pinterest for another fall DIY project. It had to be quick, easy and cheap. And that’s when I happened upon a gazillion pins for canning jar band/rings pumpkins. This easy DIY pumpkin is super cute and really simple. I didn’t have to look at a tutorial at all. I like simple.
