Fall Festival – Week #4

The Fall Festival transforms my “I hate Mondays” into “I look forward to Mondays!” I love seeing all of your creative DIY fall ideas!

This weekend, I dressed up my white candles for fall with leaves and twine.


I’m editing to participate in
My Button for Thrifty Thursday\
Check out of the links to GREAT finds!

And I got this birch-wrapped planter at the thrift store for 59 cents! Awesome!

I made an arrangement using some pumpkins, rafia ribbon and spanish moss that I already had on hand then I went out in the rain and clipped some branches with red leaves and silver dollar plants.
It reminded me of these birch wrapped candles at Crate & Barrel.




I had planned to decorate outside this weekend but the weather was uncooperative.
I started to decorate the arbor/outside.
Here is a sneak peek…
Some parts, God already decorated.

Nibbled pinecones – they look like flowers!

Hopefull
y this week the sun shines and I can resume.

Inside, I only decorate my entry way, my dining room table and mantel for fall. I’ve already shown you my tablescape and entryway. I plan to paint and redo my living room, but in the meantime I have to work with the red walls and brick. The color is perfect for the holidays.

Here is my mantel…I’m definitely not a minimalist, am I?

My ghost tree is perfect against the red background.
