Just a few simple Fall decorating ideas to help spruce up any home!

 

Pretty Leaf Pressings

To preserve the beauty of colorful fall foliage, press leaves between books. When fully dry, display leaves between two pieces of same sized glass. Secure the pieces of glass together by wrapping the edges with colored, linen book cloth tape. Add a berry-covered branch for a simple, yet elegant mantel display.

 

Pumpkins with Functions

Little gourds can be a big help in keeping a festive tablecloth in place, especially when it’s used for an outdoor gathering. Add grommets to a tablecloth (use a grommet kit, available at crafts stores). Then attach string to the pumpkins and loop through the grommets for functional seasonal fair.

 

Fall Fill

Looking for an inexpensive, yet chic fall vase filler? Try dried beans. Fill a hurricane vase with about two inches of white beans and added branch of yellow berries. Experiment with different color combinations, such as red kidney beans with orange berries.

 

Wreath of Plenty

Add a warm touch to a front door using autumn’s bounty of free and colorful craft supplies. Incoporate the season’s natural decorations into a welcoming wreath. Start with a basic wreath form (either made from florist’s foam or a plain grapevine wreath) and attach gourds, mini pumpkins and leaves using hot-glue or wire.
