Fall Decor

Oh, I know. I am totally pathetic when it comes to this blogging thing. The whole point is to be consistent though, right? I'm consistently pathetic about updating my blog. Here it is a month later, and I finally have Fall decor to show you.
These are so cute and easy. It's simply toilet paper rolls inside a brown lunch bag. The top of the lunch bag is squished down into the toilet paper roll, and then the whole thing is wrapped with an 18x22 piece of fabric, again with the top squished down into the hole. I then stuck a cinnamon stick down in the center for the stem and used leaves trimmed from a Dollar Tree fall vine. I hot glued them in place, and voila! If you like yours rounder, just smash the top down a little before gluing the leaves and stem in place.
This is a photo of our entryway table. I just took an old Goodwill chair that we painted, threw a fall throw across it, and laid my pumpkins in the seat. The big acorn on the floor is from Kirkland's (love their stuff), and the basket is just faux pumpkins, gourds, and pinecones with berries mixed in that I have collected over time. The cute fall candle holder on the floor came from Target! I also bought the "Family" word for a buck and just spray painted it to fit the color scheme. The little square photo is of the boys at the pumpkin patch (taken years ago). The frame and the candle holder came from Goodwill.
This is my coffee table. The hydrangeas are dried from our yard. The pumpkin was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I love how the colors all work together.

These are part of our built-in bookcases. On the bottom is a Dollar store pumpkin that I spray painted brushed nickle. The black and white pear candle came from Hobby Lobby. And on top, the black and white Argyle patterned candle came from Hobby Lobby as well (all on sale)! The numbered pumpkins are Dollar Tree faux pumpkins that I decoupaged using pages torn from an old dictionary. The numbers are foam stickers from my scrapbooking stash. You like? Hopefully I'll have more to show you in a few days! :)
