I love to decorate for the seasons. A few touches here and there just to celebrate - but this year I've been keeping it pretty simple. Here are few things I've done:
I used to have something different on this wall, but was craving a change. The two white frames were in my basement and used to be a hideous gold color, but I liked the detail so I decided to paint and use them. I had bought a straw wreath form last year and wanted something that said "warm and cozy" so I made this knitted creation. I didn't have a picture for the other frame, but I had a $1 black mat from the dollar store, a black sheet of construction paper and a white art pencil - so...I penciled in a few words that characterized fall. The three frames at the bottom cost $1 each on clearance at Michael's Craft Store. I painted them the light green color left over from the accent wall in our home and trimmed them in the same white as the other frames. The leaves are real leaves that I pressed. Since I had most of the materials, it cost me next to nothing. I haven't decided if I love it, but I definitely like it and it is all easy to change out for other seasons.
I spent a moment updating the girls' container play garden in the backyard from summer to fall. The mini-pumpkins are obviously fake - they have to be or the squirrels eat them. I also spent some time with the girls earlier this season making these rainbow webs from yarn and some sticks to hang from the playhouse window.
