Fall Decorating


Happy Morning All!

I did it! This post is updated from it's original date, back in August.  I completed my Fall Decorating Challenge, see the updates below.


We are in full swing with cool mornings, some leaves changing and shorter days here in Colorado.  

So, I've decided to challenge myself to decorate  for Fall this week.  I'm learning things take longer to do now, and if I wish to add new pieces to my fall Decorations, I should start sooner.  These new pieces are handmade, creative, and yummy.  I'm finding inspiration from my Autumn Pinterest  board.



I'm sharing three with you today hoping to inspire you, and to also hold me accountable for bringing them to life.

So Pinterest, a wonderful place that supports and promotes the hoarding of household items like pickle jars, cereal boxes and toilet paper rolls.  So, it shouldn't be a surprise that I'm now collecting Empty Milk Containers for one of my Fall Projects.

Project 1

{Spirit Jugs}

I found this last year and COULDN'T wait to make it...time played against me, as it always seems to do, so I wasn't blessed with the time to bring it to life.  But, I was certain I would next year, and here we are already.

Here's my Front Porch, Ghost Milk Cartons



Project 2
{Subway Printable Art "Fall"}



I've printables everywhere and have yet to print one but this one, it's going to have a space in my home, maybe even the porch. I plan to visit the Goodwill for an old frame 
to then re-do for Fall.

So, I got giddy, went for it, and decorated!  Below is a picture of the Printable up in my living room.

Does this look delish!?  It has all of my favorite ingredients, and looks super easy.

I made this for a Football get together. It was a hit!  Savory and sweet...I'll be making it again. 

There you go, a Fall inspired project Round-Up.   I'm thinking this time of year, sleep will be over-rated with all the sewing and holiday goodness...what about you? Do you have any projects you wish to bring to life?  Share below and I'd love to pin them to my pinboard.

  2. Great pins! I've always wanted to visit Colorado. I can only try and imagine how beautiful it is, especially during the Fall! I'm sure I'll never be able to experience all of it's beauty until I get to actually see it! Would love if you'd join our Countdown to Fall link party! Hope to see you there! Have a great week! :)
