Can you believe I am just now really starting to decorate for fall? Most of you probably think I’m right on time, but this is about a month late for me. 😉 My recent aversion to stuff has made me cringe at the thought of pulling the bins upstairs.
But this weekend I finally got the bug, and it’s coming out slowly but surely. It’ll just be a tad simpler this year.
Last year I showed you how to take some of your most basic decor and make your home glow with the fall season – this is a repost for anyone that wasn’t around these parts a year ago. 😉
Funny how pretty much every space in the photos below has completely changed since then. Don’t get too confused. 🙂
Enjoy! (Some updated pics will follow.)
When it comes to decorating for fall, there are three things you need for a fabulous result: different textures, layering of the textures and it’s gotta smell gooooood! You can’t go wrong if you incorporate all of these.
I like to take items I already have and change them up for fall. For this display, I used a tray (Southern Living at Home, I love you!) I already had: I had the two larger candleholders, and purchased the three smaller ones for $1.50 each at Hobby Lobby. I placed them so the sizes were layered, and and filled in between with my go-to fall filler:
Oh yeah, and a yummy candle. Glorious!
Try taking items you already have — add a candle and then some texture — whether it be pumpkins, acorns, apples, leaves, whatever! (Just make sure they aren’t near the flame! Yikes.) Have I mentioned how much I love… ummm… OK, I’ll shut it. I’m off to eat a caramel apple covered in peanuts, that should shut me up.
OK, totally weird, cause I’m about to eat a caramel apple again…right now. 🙂
I still haven’t touched the mantel or most of the other decor I mentioned in this post last year, but the tray with candles took less than five minutes to throw together on our new old Craigslist dresser:
I used the two big chunky candles from the mantel last year in the bigger glass candleholders and I love how beefy they are:
Take any kind of tray, (check out Goodwill if you don’t have one!), some candles and any kind of filler and you’ll have a beautiful fall glow for your home! Lurve…
