Beautiful Fall Mantle Decoration

The cool breeze in the morning is ushering the coming of autumn. And all the more I am getting very excited to have our dream home constructed. Looking at beautiful pictures of houses with fireplace mantles to accommodate the decorations you can put for every season is just inviting. I found these pictures in the internet and I am saving them for inspiration. These pictures will give me the design ideas I need for my faux fireplace’s mantle.

They are all pretty and I think they will look great in our dream home.

Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice

It’s official! It’s going to be pumpkin here, pumpkin there, and pumpkin everywhere! Yesterday was the first day of Autumn and what do we normally remember about Fall that makes as pause and feel good aside from the pretty vista? The coming holidays, that is! And aside from the holidays, we will be seeing many orange and warm hued stuff around us and it’s going to be lots of them too.

Now that is officially Fall, it’s going to be the time for pumpkins, and pumpkin lattes, and pumpkin pies. But how do you make those yummy treats without the main kick – the pumpkin spice? Well, it’s very simply and it won’t take so much of your time to gather and prepare this staple when making those scrumptious pumpkin flavoured goodies.

Here’s your simple pumpkin spice recipe mix!

DIY Fall Wreaths

Can you feel the crisp and cool air now? It’s officially autumn! And it’s a beautiful time to enjoy the great outdoors and the ever changing colours of nature’s foliage. It is fun to dress up our doors too with budget Fall wreath decors you can make.

Below are easy DIY Fall wreaths you and your family can make to save money on decors. Materials are everywhere and if you are crafty, you can use some of your craft supplies too. All you need is a big imagination, some wires or even cardboards to use as base for the wreath, twines, fine wires, glue gun, glue and some glitters to add spark! Now, the rest of the materials can be found around you.

Creating the base of the wreath is easy. If you prefer to use a wire, make sure you add a mesh so it is easy to attach the leaves and other decorations. I would prefer to use a thick cardboard so I can just punch holes on the base directly rather than cutting a wire mesh to attach to the wire base. Here’s a tip when you can’t find a wire deco mesh – use an old metal clothes hanger.

Decide on how large you want your wreath to be. You can be playful by going out of the normal circular wreaths. You can make a square, rectangular, oblong or any shaped wreath base you like.

Cut out your base to the desired dimension and start layering. I would normally not glue or attach the decorations right away. I will just practice on layering and placing them around the base to give me an idea of how it would look like when done.  You can start attaching when you are satisfied with the mock wreath.

If you’re using lots of dried leaves and other natural materials, you can use small amount of glue gun on the base of the leaf. Just dot the hot glue and be careful not to burn yourself. You can use hot glue on twigs and other small fruits like berries.  Use a small wire to attach the dried pine cones or small pumpkins onto the wreath.

If you will use cloth/fabric or burlap as layers for your wreath, then a wire mesh is best to use for the base so you can intertwine the fabric between the wires.

Add glue glitters on the leaves to make them look sparkly.

Complete the finishing touch with bows.

Eclectic Fall Decorations For Your Table Top

homefamilyheart.com  fall decorations, table top

The beautiful colors of autumn are very warm and inviting. It is nice to put something eclectic on your coffee table, dining table or any table top that will add warmth and coziness to the feel of your home.

You do not have to spend a fortune to be able to come up with something pretty to decorate your table tops. Most of the things you will need to complete the autumn look and feel of your eclectic decors are just right in your yard or nearby market.

Here are some ideas to start with:

  • Grab some foliage from your backyard and arrange them in a clear vase. Put varying shades of yellow, orange, brown and red to depict the many colors of fall.
  • If you live near a farm or cornfields or have access to them, ask farmers for few pieces of old cobs which are not suitable for consumption. Glue them together or attach wires and attach to a big candle. You now have a corn cob candle holder.
  • Get some varying sizes of pumpkins and color some of them with gray and white. Put them on top of each other and place on your favorite table for added pizzazz.
  • Do you have spare fabric felt of fall colors? Why not convert them into table runners but cutting out shapes of leaves and connect them together.
