DIY Fall Leaf Pillows

I love to decorate for fall! Especially when I don’t have to spend a lot of time or money on new accessories for the house! With just a few inexpensive items from the craft store, you can make your own beautiful fall leaf pillows!

DIY Fall Leaf Placecards

I know it is only the 4th, but that means that we only have 20 more days to prep for Thanksgiving! I’ve said it before this year and I’m going to say it again – time is flying!! If your family is anything like mine, everyone shows up to Thanksgiving in their sweats and comfy clothes because we all just hang out and lounge around eating all day. Its glorious!!

I have been to a few “formal” thanksgivings and those are really fun too! I love seeing all the beautiful table-scapes, decorations and place settings. If this sounds more like your family, I have a really cool idea to share with you!

Fall Leaf Place Holders

I love that these are just printable place cards and if you have a Silhouette or Cricut machine, they are extra easy to make! Just print them out, cut them out and decorate them however you want! I really like how Julie from EAB Designs made the edges of the leaves look a little burned and aged. There are so many options with these cute place holders. Click here for the full tutorial!

How to Preserve Fall Leaves

Here in Seattle, it is that perfect time of year. Let me paint the scene for you. People out on walks with their dogs, bundled up with scarves and jackets but still enjoying the blue skies and sunshine. Walking through their neighborhoods enjoying the beautiful weather and the changing of the leaves. Perfection! Am I right?

The only problem with this time of year is that its so short! I feel like one week the leaves will be bright and green and within a week or two they are all gone. I wish there was some way I could preserve the beauty of this season….oh wait! There is!!

How-to-Preserve-Fall-Leaves

Becky from The Mama’s Girls shows us her way of preserving the season in this great tutorial! Its super easy and it just requires two ingredients – one of which is water so does that really count as an ingredient? 🙂 This tutorial also helps to bring out the color in the leaves!

In her post, she also brings up a great point that these leaves would be perfect to use in a center piece or other decorating for fall/Thanksgiving! Head on over to The Mama’s Girls to check out the full tutorial!

Paint Dipped Pinecones

It is getting closer to fall! I’m starting to notice that the leaves are turning and the weather is slowly but surely getting a little bit colder each week. I’ve been on the lookout for some beautiful fall crafts and this one caught my eye!

Autumn Table Setting and Lanterns

Have you ever been to one of those houses for the Holidays and it seems like everything is perfect beyond perfect? The house looks clean, smells like pie, it’s decorated beautifully, and to top it all off, when you sit down for dinner, the table is decorated with beautiful handmade decor.
Sometimes I get insecure when I go to homes like this because, I gotta tell ya, that’s nothing like my house! For this reason, I rarely do any entertaining. Only for special occasions 🙂 I actually like to be the one being entertained haha!
Once I start a family though, I’m going to have to learn to get better at entertaining. I think one of the things that will make a huge impact with minimal effort is making these beautiful table settings and lanterns from Craft and Creativity!
I love the leaves hanging from the chandelier. It is such a natural feel for autumn. And I like the chandelier itself too! I may have to go on the hunt for one like that 🙂
This table setting is also really natural and fairly easy to create! I love the wine bottle that is wrapped in leaves. It really dresses up the bottle!
Thanks to Helena from Craft & Creativity for sharing this great decor!
