Fall Decorating Inspiration
Posted by Kevin Sharkey
After looking through my archives, I came across a favorite post that I wanted to share with you in case you missed it the first time around. I have always loved fall decorating -- and now with the season in full swing and the holidays about to begin, I thought these images and easy projects would be a great source of inspiration to you all!
At Living, we often take a cue from nature's bounty of color and textures when it comes to making decorative updates for autumn. Gourds, nuts, and dried leaves are materials that go a long way when it comes to setting the mood for the season. The fall decorating projects I've gathered, below, are easy to create. Many of these projects would make wonderful additions to a fall table setting, too.
1 This wreath features almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, and walnuts and is finished off with a beautiful burnt orange satin ribbon. http://www.marthastewart.com/272661/nut-wreath
2 This centerpiece couldn't be easier to put together. Take gourds and modern ceramic vessels and place them around the table for Thanksgiving or anytime during the fall months.
3 Dried corn really features the hues of fall. Here, a cluster is hung from a brick red ribbon.
4 Just add flowers, paper leaves, and a ribbon to dress up plain hurricanes for the season.
5 It's easy to make this with a kit that is usually used for turning a bottle into a lamp; the kit is available at most hardware and crafts stores. http://www.marthastewart.com/264601/gourd-art
6 I love this crisp, fall wreath made from cornhusks.
7 Use fresh bittersweet and vines to make this decorative autumn wreath. http://www.marthastewart.com/how-to/bittersweet-autumn-wreath
8 Wrapped in dried corn husks, votives cast a soft glow and serve as an elegant addition to your fall table. http://www.marthastewart.com/273502/cornhusk-votives
9 Finials -- he small piece that screws onto the top of a lamp's harp -- are given some attention when a pinecone is added to the top.
10 This breathtaking wreath is made from turkey quill feathers and magnolia leaves, colored on one side with floral spray, are mixed with stalks of wheat to create a stunning wreath. http://www.marthastewart.com/266375/midas-touches-in-full-feather
11 These large trivets in leafy shapes make a bold statement and they're functional. Plus, you only need our template and felt wool to make them. http://www.marthastewart.com/273201/festive-foliage
12 These door decorations are a twist on the traditional cornucopias and can display your favorite fall flowers or branches. http://www.marthastewart.com/267825/mini-cornucopias-and-door-arrangements
