Fall Decor

Fall is in the air! Pumpkin spice lattes, cooler weather, football…ahhhh, this is my favorite season! To get our house ready for Thanksgiving and in the “fall-mood”, I went to Hobby Lobby and made several new faux flower arrangements for various places in the house. I also added a fun bowl of pumpkins & acorns, updated my apothecary jars, and bought a new fox for my dome. Hope you enjoy and can find some ideas!

Fabric & Bunting Pennant Banner

It has been super busy here lately! I’ve been doing lots of projects but have had no time to post anything. Last month, my crafty-friend Kristen (from the Rainbow Candy Land Birthday post) came over, and we sewed a fabric & bunting banner for her daughter’s new “toddler” room. And, oh my! I loved it so much that I feel like all of my friends need to have little girls so we can make tons of these! 🙂

Pictures of the banner are below along with a few pictures of the other decor in the room. I loved Kristen’s idea to put fabric in cross-stich hoops. The birds, milk glass, and vintage box tied it all together!

Visit the Glorious Treats blog post How to Make a Fabric Bunting for step-by-step instructions. The fabric and bedding featured were ordered from Carousel Designs.

Christmas Mantle

I thought that since most of us will be spending the weekend after Thanksgiving shopping & decorating for Christmas, I would post our new Christmas Mantle!

Christmas Mantle

I made the garland several years ago with the cheapest, skimpiest garland I could find at Hobby Lobby. I added lights, berries, floral picks, and Christmas balls. It’s amazing how much cheaper it is when you make your own!

I also made the glitter trees. I used poster board, Modge Podge, & glitter. These cost $1.50 to make versus $10-$20 each they cost at the store. I apologize that I do not have any pictures to go with the DIY instructions. I was covered half in glitter & didn’t want to get it all over my camera lens! 🙂

To make the trees: Purchase poster board in whatever color you ware wanting to glitter the trees. (I used white for the silver one.) You can also “cheat” here by covering white poster board in colored paper that matches your glitter. Twist your poster board into a cone shape and hot-glue the seam. Then, paint about 4″ of the cone with Modge Podge and press it in glitter. I took a Rubbermaid tub lid and a piece of wax paper, poured the glitter on it, then rolled my cone in the glitter. Next, repeat painting Modge Podge on the next 4″ and rolling it in glitter until you are completely finished. You do not have to, but once they dry, you can spray them with Ceramic Sealer (found at Hobby Lobby) so the glitter doesn’t get all over your house!

Enjoy!
