Fall Frenzy

Patience may be a virtue, but it is definitely not one of my strong points. Take this picture for example…

Maybe you notice that…um…the coffee-table-in-progress (found here) has no legs and is sitting on the ground. Yet, for some reason, it is decorated. I just couldn’t help myself. I’m starting to get into that fall decorating mood and it was begging to be noticed!

All of this decent weather the past couple of days has really sent me into a “fall frenzy.” Burnt orange, dark red, rich browns…They are all slowly popping into our home’s decor.

Looking for some great fall DIY ideas? Here are a few of my favorites from some of the wonderful blogs across the web.

These gourds and mini pumpkins, found at Her Southern Charm, would be a real autumn inspired attention grabber when placed in the middle of the family dining table. Since this idea is easy to create, maintain, and move, it may find it’s way to my table soon.

These super cute DIY T.P. roll pumpkins from Organize and Decorate Everything look like they would be a breeze to create when those outdoor breezes begin to turn cooler. I can just see these sitting on the bookshelf in the dining room…

Update: Want to see my results from this project? Check it out here.

These leafy guys from PepperPaints would look fantastic nestled in among that gourd and pumpkin centerpiece mentioned earlier. What a great DIY project to keep a child busy! They would absolutely love seeing their talent displayed in the middle of the dining table! You could even use crumpled construction paper if it is too early to find those beautiful, autumn-colored leaves. Wrap a piece of twine around the center and presto…

Plan on hosting a fall-tastic autumn party? Create these amazing DIY pumpkin name cards featured on One Lucky Couple and your guests won’t “fall” over each other trying to procure their seat! Or use them to add a personal touch to your home decor…

So there are a few ideas to get started on that fall decor I so dearly love. I plan to do each of these amazing fall ideas. Of course, I’ll be dropping in to let you guys have the play-by-play on how these little projects work.

So how about you? Are you feeling that “fall frenzy” yet or are you still soaking up every hour of the last few weeks of summer? Do you have a great DIY fall idea to share? Leave a comment and let us know!
