I love decorating for Fall both the inside and the outside of my house. All the colors are earthy and decorations are rustic. This is the front door to my house. It is the perfect way to greet your guests with warm and inviting decorations to welcome them to your home.
This basket is one of those things that everyone comments on. I have it filled with decorative pumpkins that I picked up at my local craft store along with scarecrow pics, raffia and pinecones. I also threw in some small decorative gourds. As far as the basket goes, I weaved different colors of ribbon in around the bottom, middle and top to brighten it up. The basket alone is really nice, but I wanted to give it some more color on its own. As you can see, the pumpkins are at different heights. I have floral foam at the bottom of the basket in different lengths to stager the pumpkins. Every year I re-make it. It’s always a little different, but always gorgeous.
This is so easy and it looks great. This is a dollar store pumpkin that I took the handle off and hot glued some floral foam in the bottom. Then, I went to the craft store and picked up 2 large fall bouquets and arranged them in the pumpkin. It is as easy as that.
My dining room table has a runner with all those great Fall colors and three dryer vent pumpkins on it. I have one orange and the others are off-white and black. I also have the wine glass votives on the table in between the pumpkins. All the step by step instructions are in the Fall Craft section.
I made this tray years ago out of paper napkins. This is decoupage. Basically you cut out pictures and glue them down. For this one I used some Halloween napkins and cut the edges and the pumpkins out. The decoupage medium works as a glue and a varnish. I’ll put the instructions in the Fall Craft section.
My husband picked up some Halloween decorations for the house. His choice is slightly different from mine, but it wouldn’t be Halloween without a few spooky decorations. The skeleton on the candy dish comes to life when you take candy from the bowl. He says things like…”hands off my candy, I’m not in the sharing mood”. And, his eyes light up like two red beams coming from his head. It’s scary and very startling. No matter how many times I heard it, and of course I know it will go on, I still jump as though it is the first time I saw it. My grandchildren laugh every time I jump. They range in age from 3 to 13 and they all play with the candy dish. I’m sure everyone has a crow with an eyeball hanging out of its mouth adorning their homes, don’t they??? He also makes a crowing sound when prompted. I can’t leave out the owl. This one also makes a sound, but it in no way resembles an owl. It’s just weird.
