Leaves are falling, there’s pumpkin and apple cider flavored temptations everywhere…
and the days are chilly one day but warm and sunny the next. (I never know how to dress this time of year)
It’s also a time that I can find to be kind of stressful sometimes.
There’s so much that I want to do right before and during the holiday season, but rarely find enough time to do it all.
Can you relate?
But, despite the stress and busyness…I love fall!
Hope you enjoy my simple fall living room decorations!
Living Room Fall Home Decor
This next one is very subtle fall decor with a few dried leaves that I added glitter glue to and then wrapped a white candle with three strips of brown-toned rhinestones that you can find at dollar stores.
I shared a picture of this area in this blog post back at the start of fall when I was first starting to transition to my fall decorations. It’s an area right on our TV console, as you can probably tell with that big black rectangle in the back. I really like decorating this area every season but try to keep it simple so my husband doesn’t complain that he cant see the TV! 🙂
Small glass pumpkins and faux leaves by the window.
I have owned those gold and bronze pumpkins probably for about 10 years now and I love them, they come out every year for fall. This clear pumpkin down below is a new find that I just picked up this year. I love it just as much as the other two.
Do you keep decorations around for years and never get tired of them too?
How I love faux flowers….and checkered anything.
Some glue and gold glitter dusted onto a few old pine cones…
Mingling with gold acorns in a small round vase, AKA fish bowl…minus the fish 😉
Four beautiful branches of faux leaves from the Dollar store…
Dollar Tree tray and ribbon with a few gold toned beads at the bottom of my vase…
and faux berries wrapped onto my branches…
For a very simple but oh so pretty fall centerpiece.
Sending happy, safe, and healthy vibes your way. May God bless you and your family today and every beautiful day to come!
I’ve slowly been transitioning from summer to fall decor for about a month now. By slowly, I mean I’ve been moving veeery slow!
I always have a hard time switching from one season to another. I’ve probably already mentioned this but, I never want to let go of the season we are in and all the beauty it has to offer!
Summer brings on so many beautiful bright colors, gorgeous sunny days, fun beach trips, turquoise jewelry (so perfect for summer) oh, and of course ice cream!
But then there’s fall. Oh fall!! It comes with a rainbow of colorful leaves.
Mustard yellow, warm wine, pumpkin orange, and comforting caramel colors…
How could I not want to hold on to that for as long as I could 🙂
So it’s either I hold on to my ice cream cravings a little while longer or move on to collecting colorful leaves at the park.
A true dilemma.
Do you feel the same way? Is there any time of the year you have a hard time letting go off?
So for the most part my home always has a mix of seasonal decorations whenever I’m switching them out and this time around I thought it would be nice to take pictures of the areas that are slowly transitioning into fall and share them here with you.
The changes are mostly simple and subtle as of now. Bringing out old fall decorations, exploring with a few new finds here and there but hopefully things will fully come together soon!
I cant wait to share the finished look once I’m done.
Transitioning to Fall Decor
A white and brown acorn meets a floral vase that I had out for summer.
I placed a few ivory flowers here on our TV counsel. Now, I know these flowers are not traditional fall decorations but there’s something about the ivory mixed with the red and yellow that makes me feel like they work for fall.
I’m not sure what I will end up doing with this spot but for now this works perfectly!
A basket full of pumpkins sits on my floor waiting for a more permanent spot.
Who ever said stickers were just for kids! Here I used three apple stickers to decorate in my kitchen. Then I finished the frame with a few layers of handmade bows that I glued on.
My table is a magnet for unfinished projects.
Here sits a simple wreath that I’ve been working on for far too long and colorful berries that I admire everyday and wonder what I might do with them.
The simple things are truly the best!
A salt shaker with a few sprigs of foliage that me and my daughter picked up before the summer started.
Ok friends, that’s it for this one…I hope you enjoyed it and were inspired to put some fall decorations up in your home too!
Sending happy, safe, and healthy vibes your way. May God bless you and your family today and every beautiful day to come!
Hello my friends, this is a continuation of my last blog post “Living Room Fall Decor.”
Normally, I would try to combine everything I make for seasonal decorations into one blog post.
But this time around, it was as if something hit me over the head and turned the light bulb on….
Separate everything into different rooms/categories.
So I decided to separate the living room and kitchen decorations into separate blog posts, but…
old habits are hard to break.
So I ended up adding in a few extra simple decorations that I have scattered in other areas of our home.
So without further ado…
Kitchen Fall Decor (and a few extras)
I made a simple drawing of yellow leaves on cardstock and placed it on a clear command hook on our countertop.
(I started with a pencil, filled the leaves in with a yellow color pencil, and with a hole punch I added some twine for hanging)
Small Cardboard squares wrapped in pretty napkins (above and below)….finished with pumpkin stickers (the kid in me)
Yep, that’s my reflection on the side of the fridge, in case you were wondering 😉
Something pretty to look at by the stove while I cook.
A single pinecone in a champagne glass (I promise I’m not fancy at all, I had to ask my husband what type of glass I was using)
And a couple of pinecones hanging out with a few small twigs of hydrangeas and white peonies in a pretty shot glass.
Both photos with the pinecones are decorating our kitchen hutch. You can see a better picture of the hutch here
A blue candle…
wrapped with some twine and faux floral petals.
Pumpkins and glittery tinsel decorating my daughter’s room.
Here I took an old Dollar Store pumpkin and added iridescent glitter glue to the creases.
A gold sequenced pumpkin with a few pearls, silver and gold beads, and a white faux flower all hot glued together.
A very simple fall bathroom decoration. Two black and white buffalo pumpkins.
I have to admit guys…
This photo is an impostor.
I wish I could tell you that it always looks this neat but that wall cabinet seems to always attract all sorts of stuff. Hair brushes, lotion bottles, makeup and all sorts of cute toddler hair accessories.
Please tell me your bathroom works the same as mine.
ok, that’s it…hope you enjoyed this!
Thanks for stopping by.
Sending happy, safe, and healthy vibes your way…May God bless you and your family today and every beautiful day to come!
Fall is such a beautiful time of year. The colorful leaves, the rainbow of mums, that slight chill in the air.
And those falling acorns, that I find myself trying to dodge every time I step outside. (haven’t been hit by one yet)
How can you not love it.
It’s the perfect time of year to admire our God’s creations.
Today I’m sharing all of the fall decorations that I have scattered around my living room. It’s a combination of a few simple DIY’s using faux flowers, faux fall leaves, twine as well as a few real pumpkins and some decorative store bought items.
As always, most of the items I am using came from local Dollar stores, Target as well as items I already had on hand.
I started by picking out my colors. I love color! And I almost always end up with a mix of different colors when I’m decorating. So for these fall decorations, I decided to use three classic fall colors. Red, yellow, and orange but I also included some blue as well.
Then I brought in the two usual items I love to decorate with. Faux flowers and ribbon.
I added in a few classic items like pumpkins and pine cones and brought that all together with a few new items as well as items I already had at home to create these 9 simple decor items I’ll be sharing with you now.
ok, let’s get started…
9 Simple Fall Decor Ideas
For this first one, I used a white candle, a small glass cup from the dollar store, yellow ribbon, red checkered ribbon, and a few sprigs of small leaves that I pulled off of an old faux plant.
I started by securing my yellow ribbon with some scotch tape here…
then finished wrapping it around my glass and secured it again with more tape.
I finished by tying a bow with my checkered red ribbon over the yellow ribbon then tucking my small sprigs into the red ribbon. Then in goes my candle to the glass cup.
For my next one, I filled a cylinder vase with mini pumpkins then wrapped green ribbon around my vase, securing it with tape.
Then I finished off with some Dollar Tree orange/gold ribbon that I picked up a couple of years ago for this fall centerpiece.
It doesn’t get any more simple than this next one!
I used a recycled old jar, filled it with a couple of old mini pumpkins and some pine cones then wrapped my checkered red ribbon finishing off with a simple bow around the front.
Now I’m using three blue faux flowers that I picked up over the summer at my local dollar store…
and added them to a blue vase that I found at the Christmas Tree Shop, then finished with jute twine tied to my vase.
Here I used three red faux poppy flowers from Walmart, another old jar and then I wrapped my jar with three different ribbons…
To create a simple wreath, I used a small paper plate, cut the center out with a craft knife…
wrapped burlap around my paper plate and secured it with hot glue…
hot glued a few faux leaves, one sunflower pulled off its stem, and a few red berries to complete this simple wreath.
Please excuse me while I ramble a bit. I’m always amazed at how many times I’m able to reuse my faux flowers. I’ve used that sunflower you see on the wreath over and over again since picking it up a few years ago at the Dollar Tree. It started off as a couple of bunches of sunflowers but since then I’ve taken it apart many times and created a number of different pieces with them.
I’ve actually used many of the items you see today in a number of different posts throughout this blog. Those eucalyptus leaves you’ll see down below were used last year for fall decor. My single sunflower on my wreath has made a presentation for spring, fall, and who knows how many other times! My two yellow flowers accompanying that large red rose down below have also appeared a few different times.
As for those fun white chrysanthemums a few photos down, they made their debut right here. Even those sweet little red berries up top popped up to say hello here.
Anyway, I always love seeing how many times I can use these beautiful flowers and thought it would be fun to share with you as well.
This next one may just be my favorite.
I’m using another glass cup just like the one I used for my white candle, burlap, orange twine, a large faux yellow peony from the dollar store, and a bunch of eucalyptus leaves.
I cut a few stems of leaves off of that bunch of leaves, then combined them with my yellow faux flower.
And wrapped my cup with burlap and orange twine…
Now I’m using pine cones, a glass vase, glitter red ribbon, a red rose, yellow faux flowers, and faux leaves…
All of that comes together in my vase, finishing off with a simple red sparkly bow.
(Red rose from Walmart. I picked up the yellow flowers about a year ago at Michaels)
So I placed that centerpiece in my bedroom and figured I’d get back to it.
Then, before I knew it August rolled in and here I am, still not finished with that arrangement (Because my precious two year old has decided that my time is better spent playing with her and her building blocks ☺️)
But I really wanted to share this despite the fact that summer is almost over.
So I went back and forth with a few different ideas and eventually ended up with a floral arrangement that can work for late summer decor but easily transition into the coming fall months.
ok, let’s jump right in!
Here we go…
Bedroom Centerpiece – Transitioning From Summer to Fall Decor
So this is what’s been sitting on our bedroom vanity pretty much all summer.
It consists of Dollar Store faux flowers that I already had on hand and a few smaller pink peonies that I picked up at the Dollar Tree when summer first started.
(I’ve used the older flowers in a number of different arrangements that I’ll go ahead and link to)
I’m keeping things very simple to make this centerpiece a bit more fall appropriate.
I mentioned that I was over using pumpkins to decorate for the fall. Sure, I had a couple in my kitchen before even clicking publish for that post, but I wanted to keep it that way, just a few, for this year at least.
Then I decided that my kitchen needed more fall decorations. So I got to digging through all my old fall stuff and there they were. All the pumpkins I use year after year. They were screaming for me to use them.
I debated for a bit and wondered…
Would I be wrong for using pumpkins to decorate after clearly saying that I wouldn’t, will everyone that read my last post demand a refund of their time after finding out that I clearly didn’t stick to what I said I would (or wouldn’t) do?
Then I said to myself…it’s not that serious Sindy!
We’re just talking about a few extra sweet pumpkins here after all.
So I got to decorating and as usual, I made use of a few extra items I already had on hand to bring everything together.
Ok, let’s get started. It is November after all! Falls almost done and soon we’ll be talking about Christmas. Yay!
Here we go…
Simple Fall Kitchen Decor
First those pumpkins
I used a few pumpkins I had stored away to decorate my kitchen table.
I started by grabbing an old black and white kitchen towel, folded it and placed it in the center of the table.
Then I used a pickle jar I was about to toss out to hold a few mini pumpkins I found at the dollar store years ago. I washed the jar first, (of course, lol) filled it with the pumpkins…
Then I got some leftover ribbon from my last post and tied it on to the jar.
A few mixed matched pumpkins ended up scattered around the jar…
A few more pumpkins…
Two bronze-colored pumpkins (a target find from a few years ago) end up on my kitchen counter top along with…
A ginormous old mug with some serving utensils and a simple faux flower from Walmart.
The two utensils with clear handles are actually from my wedding. Using a few items from my wedding really made this little area extra special and so fun to look at!
I grabbed a few old flowers that I’ve had for years and dropped them into a small container.
I filled the container with a piece of burlap before dropping in the flowers.
(FYI: that small container is actually a cotton swab holder that I wasn’t using for some time. I just removed the lid to use as a small vase)
And there you have it!
A very simple kitchen fall decor…
with a bit of heartwarming memories…
and enough pumpkins…
to make me laugh every time I walk by them.
ok friends, thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog!
