Ode to Fall

With September only 2 days away, (where in the world has this year gone?), I thought I would join in on the sharing of Fall ideas. I thought I would share two items that I used last year to decorate our house.

The first is item is a fall wreath that I made. I just went to Michael’s and bought a grapevine wreath, some fall flowers, some fall leaves, and some fall berries. I was super happy with the way it turned out and it added just what I wanted to our front door. And it actually was rather cheap.

Next item, well more like items, is the set up I created in our front garden. I made the pumpkins 2 years ago. And they are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE FALL DECOR! They are plastic pumpkins that I bought at Michael’s and then I covered them in Martha Stewart Glitter. You can’t tell in this picture but when the sun hits them they shimmer like crazy! They are AWESOME! 🙂 I then just paired them with some mums, some small hay bails, pine cones from my backyard, and some more fall leaves.
I will share how I made my pumpkins a little closer to the start of fall. And the best thing about these pumpkins is that you can reuse them and that they don’t rot! lol

So that was my Fall decor from last year. I did a few other things but I guess I didn’t take any pictures of the rest. I look forward to seeing how you all decorate for fall and to see all of your fall craft ideas. I have a couple things up my sleeve for this year so we’ll see if I produce them the way I have pictured in my head. 🙂

    I made some smaller glitter pumpkins for my coffee table a couple years ago. (and for an etsy shop that I never really did anything with haha)I hadn't thought of making larger ones for outdoor use! Good idea! I love it!
