Fall Decor

Ok, so I have been very slack with the blog posts lately.......things have been crazy busy around this household!! But today I wanted to show you some of my fall decor around the house!! I usually start putting up the fall decorations on the first day of fall (remember I said usually) and then I just add a few things for Halloween. That way it's easy to remove them and continue with the same fall decor through Thanksgiving;)

Pumpkins in the kitchen! You can purchase a pack of these for around a dollar at Micheal's!

Table decor: Ceramic pumpkins from the Dollar Store, Burlap I had left over: just cut a strip to make a great fall table runner.

Great hurricane from Willow House.....just add a bag of split peas & a pumpkin spice candle and you're done!!

Don't leave out the guest bathroom!! I just added a few of my left over pumpkins from Micheals, along with a few orange soaps:)

On the couch.....a throw pillow from Pier One in warm fall colors!!

Dollar Store Fall Leaf Wreath......Start out with a grapevine wreath, hot glue on Fall Leaves (I used 4 packs) & hang with ribbon!! Total cost: $5

And last but not least my front door!! The door bucket is from Willow House, I use the red & yellow flower arrangement in it from June until November!! I just add different things to it depending on the time of year (flags for the 4th of July & leaves and pumpkins for the get the idea) I only take the door bucket down 3 times during that time frame. For my DH's birthday (& put up my Birthday Balloon Wreath), Halloween (& put up a Halloween sign) and for Christmas (& put up a Christmas wreath)!! Then just add some mums and pumpkins (these are fake ones that light up and have the Jack-o-lantern faces on them) I simply turn them around and plug them up for Halloween and turn them back around for Thanksgiving!!

Wants to thank Endless Crafting for doing all of the awesome work & making a subway art template that you can download for FREE! I printed one out and used a frame and mat that I already had........and I LOVE IT!!

Now I'm on a misson trying to find a home for this great piece of art!! For now it's above my cabinets in the kitchen.....

But only time will tell where this little jewel will end up;)
