Happy Fall, Y'all!
I frequently get asked about my handmade fall decor, so I decided to share a few areas of my home and how the decorations came to be. I have a kid-friendly house, so nothing is fancy or expensive. I like decorating (especially handmade stuff), but I LOVE how excited my kids get when they see that I have added fun festivity to our home! It makes me smile, too. (:

- Autumn Grasses. Purchased at JoAnn's, similar here and here.
- BOO letters. I spray painted them with a warm white, then painted the rims gold. Find the letters here.
- Chalkboard. Made using a second hand framed picture from Goodwill, using this tutorial.
- Fabric Pumpkins. Handmade using this blog post.
- Wreath form purchased at Joann's (similar here). After trying several kinds of forms, I now have a pretty strong opinion that the kind made of pressed, shaped straw wrapped in plastic is the most sturdy. Just my 2-cents.
- Burlap and fabric flowers made using tutorial found here and here.
- Feathers made from yarn and liquid starch. Tutorial found here.
- Floral pieces and Pumpkin from Joann's.
- Thankful board: 1x4 wood, painted light brown, then sanded around edges to distress. Vinyl "thankful."
- Sitting scarecrow: This was a hand-me-down from my mom. :)
- Table: Tray and metallic balls from Pier One. Leaves from JoAnn's. Vintage lace table runner made according to this tutorial.
- Mini mason jar floral arrangement: These are the Atlas Mason jars that Classico Pesto comes in. I always save them. They make excellent small drinking glasses for my kids, and they are adorable in decorating. I painted these with a warm white spray paint. Floral pieces are from JoAnn's.
- Painting (of Colorado Rockies in Fall) available here.
- Wool Ball Garland made using these.
- Fall Feather Garland tutorial found here.
- Letterboard is "The Poet" from Letterfolk.
