Another Fall Project and some Fall Decor


Well, here in the Valley of the Sun, it won't truly feel like fall for another few months, but the mornings are cooler, the nights are cooler, and school is in session.  That's "fall" enough for me!  This weekend I am breaking out the fall decor!  But first, another fall project had to be completed.

I found this tutorial for a rag wreath at Moda Bake Shop sometime last year.  I bought the wreath frame and.....it sat for a year.  First I couldn't find fabric I liked.  Then I thought I would make a Christmas one.  But then Christmas passed, and I thought, okay, maybe a spring one.  You get the picture.  Finally, this summer, I decided to bite the bullet and pick out some fall fabric.  I found these cute rolls of fabric at Hobby Lobby for $4.99.  I love how they are fall colors, but not "fall fabric"- if you know what I mean.




I put this monogrammed pumpkin on our sofa table.  

This is super easy to make.  I printed out a letter in a cute font, taped it to the front of my pumpkin, then used a pushpin to make a dot outline of the letter on the pumpkin.  Then I removed the letter and "connected-the-dots" with a Sharpie, then filled in the letter with the marker.  You could also use a paint marker.  Or even Vinyl.  This was BS:  Before Silhouette!

I found a place for my Fall Jars:

I hung my favorite fall wall hanging  (I wish I could say I made this, but I bought it at TJ Maxx for $8.99)


I put out my basket of pumpkins that I LOVE from Joann-


I have a lot more ideas and inspiration to keep me going.  I love to see everyone's fall decor, so send me a link if you have something you love!

Also, if you love fall as much as I do- go to the Fall Nesting Party at The Inspired Room.  I love this blog.
