Oh, How Pinterestingly Autumnish.

It has been waaaay too difficult finding/figuring out cute fall decor while not including halloween-y things.  I'd really rather not have my house look like a haunted or cutely-haunted house. 

Pinterest has been a little kind to me whilst I search for these decorations, but honestly, it hasn't done that much good.  I'm still at a loss on what I should do with cute pumpkins or even a bunch of fall leaves.

I even had to call in Google to do some decor hunting for me.  Yeah, Google.  It didn't do so well either.  It's too overwhelming to see a million pumpkins staring at me from someone's overly cute porch.  I don't even really have a porch.

I did, however, find some good ideas on Pinterest that I think I may be trying.  What do you think?

I love the twine and acorns.  I bet I could find lots of those around here.

I have plenty of candle holders from the wedding.  Maybe I'll make good use of them...

Hammering leaves to get the color.  Love it!

I really want to make a wreath this year.  I like a couple of these.

I like this one, too.  Except not in purple.  My husband will thank me later.

That's what I'm pinning.  I'm going to try and get some of these things done this week/next week and I'll hopefully have something fall festive in my house.

Do you have any good fall decor ideas?


  1. Love those little votives with the sticks! I need to figure out how to make some of those:)

  2. So crafty! Love your blog and all your pins!! My favorote is the stick candle holder! So winter feely! Have an amazing wednesday!

  3. I love all the ideas you found! I'm with you - I can't stand Halloween decorations. They're just not...cute to me. Or pretty. Or anything. I hate Halloween in general.

    That said - I bought some mini pumpkins the other day, along with some glitter spray and glitter glue from the craft store and I'm fully intending on doing something fun with them soon - I also saw this cool thing where someone took a glass candle holder, filled it with unpopped popcorn (so basically mini corn kernels) and then stuck a candle in it, I thought that looked pretty cute...

    Can't wait to see what you end up making!!

  4. so many cute ideas!

    xo, sarah grace

  5. I love all of those Fall decorations! We definitely don't have a shortage of acorns or sticks around here :D

  6. I miss my crafting buddy! I love all the ideas and can't wait to see what you create. I am making a rag wreath right now too with scrap fabric (google that). It's kind of like we are doing a project together. LOL P.S. How's the wedding scrapbook?
