I love The Fall

I love The Fall
With the first fall holiday right around the corner it’s definitely time to bring out all of the fall decorations. I don’t know about you………….but I like to change it up from year to year!
So, this week, I thought it would be fun to share some fun décor ideas that I found on the internet.  Please feel free to share your ideas with us too.


Think Beyond Orange!
Add Dots: Cut a circle from a foam sponge and dab it in a shallow dish of paint. Press the dot directly onto your pumpkin, or onto a white stripe that you previously painted (and let dry).
Make 'Em White: Paint your pumpkins with a couple of coats of white craft paint and let them dry. Use markers and paint pens to add squiggles and squares or even to write a short Halloween story.
Make 'Em Black: Cover pumpkins with a couple of coats of black craft paint. Draw on the dry surface with chalk or a white paint marker.

Painted vases are all the rage, and its easy to add metallic accents to a variety of containers. Pour a small amount of metallic crafts paint inside a vase; tip and twirl the vase to cover as much of the interior as desired. I love gold for fall, but you can pick the paint that matches your home's decor.

Wrapped White Pumpkins

Give white pumpkins colorful texture and flair. Here, long bittersweet berry vines wrap two or three times around medium-size gourds. Secure the ends with florist's wire.


Halloween Planters and Pumpkins

Simple steps and easy-to-find materials transform planters, lanterns, and pumpkins into a scary-fun Halloween doorstep arrangement. Adhere cat eyes (search online for copyright-free images) with crafts glue to urn planters or other pots. Tuck twigs, leaves, or flowers into sand or plastic foam-filled planters. Cut pieces of orange cardstock to fit lantern panels and tape jack-o'-lantern face pieces (cut from black cardstock) to the orange pieces. Place them behind the glass panels to protect from wind and rain. Add a few pumpkins and voila: Doorstep masterpiece accomplished!

Spider Welcome Mat

Skip the pricey holiday mats and make your own spider-theme welcome mat for just a few dollars. Start with a lightweight black mat cut into a circle. Hot-glue lengths of clothesline to the mat in a spiderweb pattern.
