It is that time of year again! Time for crisp mornings, comfy sweaters, and pumpkin spice everything!
I have lived in very cold and hot places, but Tennessee has such a balance of seasons . Fall being my favorite season. We have rolling hills with trees to show off their lollipop vibrant colors. I am in awe of them as I drive and thankful for such beauty around me.
There are some great ways to bring that Fall flavor into your home without breaking your bank. Using a lot of what nature has to offer and some good buys as well. I have 7 things that I believe are a Fall must have for you!
Fall must have #1 Pumpkins
Pumpkins are sort of given the spot light for fall and they can be found almost anywhere! You can decide if you want just the classic orange, creamy whites and grays, or mix it up. They can go in almost every room and outside as well. You can paint them or leave them be. Once you cut them, they will start to rot faster, but it just isn't fall without these lil guys.
Fall must have #2 Pine cones
Pine cones add such great texture to any vignette. You can put them in a bowl or jar, add them around a candle scape, or even to a wreath. You can paint them as well. They are pretty hardy and will last even through Christmas. Some stores even have them in a cinnamon scent. We all know what fall fragrance that will bring to our home.
Fall must have #3 Acorns
Acorns are another favorite of mine that bring great texture and personality. Being that they are so little, they are great to fill a jar or any filler. If you can't find these near your home, most craft or home improvement stores will have them.
Fall must have #4 Mums
These bountiful beauties are a must! They are happiest outside, but have seen people use them around the house as well. Fall is brimming with colorful displays and this is no exception. You can go with any color scheme or mix it up.
Fall must have #5 glass gourds
Not all of your pumpkins have to be real. These glass pumpkins can be elegant, fun, and you are able to use them every year. You can buy them as a group or get individual ones that have a personality of their own. These run from $15-30.
Fall must have #6 Pillows
One great way to change your home for the season is to change out your toss pillows. There are some great ones out there. You can find something that really speaks to your personality. This pillow is only $15
Fall must have #7 Art
Artwork doesn't always have to look like it is on your wall. You can get smaller paintings and place them on a table top easel. You can use shadow boxes and place kids art in them, or add a little saying like the one above. This cutie is just $7.
So hopefully this has give you some ideas on how to add some Fall decor to your home without spending too much. We all know that Christmas is around the corner with many people to buy for. When you add some of these things to your house, it will enhance your Fall mood and help you enjoy this season more.
