Warm Up Your Home with Fall Decor!

Bring the beauty of colorful fall foliage indoors this Fall with some simple crafts that use leaves and other elements to create seasonal home accents for any room in your house. 
Craft a stunning wreath that incorporates all the colors of Fall. Layer brown leaves and pinecones with vibrant mums and yarrow in shades of red and yellow. Be on the lookout for other colorful leaves, add small dried gourds, acorns, or tie in some sisal, jute or festive ribbon to pull it all together.


Garnish plain pillar candles with leaves for an elegant yet understated display. Place the leaves where you like, then decoupage them into place. If needed, use tacky white craft glue to hold the stems down. Cover the candles and leaves with another coat of decoupage medium.

This is so easy and one of my favorites! Simply place a votive candle in a clear glass container and surround it with unshelled nuts or acorns you find on a walk. Display it anywhere; a table, buffet, or mantel. Once Fall is over, add in scented pinecones, jingle bells, or small glass ornaments to ring in the Christmas season!
