Autumn always brings back memories for me of my childhood. Growing up in the states means long summer vacations so that when school restarts it becomes something to look forward to. Honestly, I detested school with a passion but there is something about new notebooks, pencil cases, pens and notepads to get you looking forward to it. Everything is new and clean with no ink marks or smudgy pencil stains. It feels like you’re starting over and life is full of new and good possibilities. Then autumn comes and the air is fresher and the leaves turn colour and suddenly all the fun holidays are just around the corner. Halloween, followed by Thanksgiving and then…CHRISTMAS!
But let’s stick with one thing at a time. Autumn…the colours are gorgeous and I just want to bring the outside in! Here are some ideas I have been collecting to start decorating for autumn.
So simple and beautiful! I think I may be able to get all the materials from my local Hobby Craft! If the metal lanterns are cheaper, I can always choose to spray paint them.
Hazelnuts! This idea would work right through till Christmas!
Ahhhh! Cinnamon sticks! I love those minature pumpkins and pine cones! Simple!
How great is this door sway!? You can try and make a similar one or purchase this exact one at Etsy.com.
Love this! I haven’t bought into the whole birdcage thing for decorating but this is great! It appeals to mystical side of me. The vine reminds me of disused buildings being over run by vines, like sleeping beauty’s castle.
I am definitely doing this one! So simple and both flowers and pumpkin can be bought at my local supermarket!
