After two glorious weeks of 80 degree temperatures in October, there is finally a chill in the air here in the Midwest. Here are a few Fall fix-ups I have done.
Since the family room is in complete disrepair from popcorn ceiling removal in process among other projects, Halloween decorating are at a minimum this year. :-( The mantle is definitely ready for any seasonal accoutrements so I decided to spook up my foyer table instead.
I bought this urn at a resale shop and it was bright GOLD! A few cans of spray paint and just about $15 worth of floral picks from JoAnn Fabrics and I LOVE the result! I just cannot decide whether to use it indoors or on the front porch! :-)
The summer flowers have been ripped out and added a few fall touches to this planter.
Found this rug in my Welcome Mat stash in the shed and thought hey I can use this at the front door. Fall colors, leaf motif = perfect. But it needed a "little something". So I found an intitial I liked on the internet, traced it onto freezer paper using the method so many amazing bloggers have introduced me to and I think it looks pretty cool. The FRONTGATE catalog look for FREE!
Found these awesome candle sconces at HOBBY LOBBY clearance (one of my favorite things) and spray painted them black. I then bought these LED candles on clearance at Michael's and a package of Halloween glitter stickers. I think they look great! Again, I keep moving them from indoors to the front porch.
