1. Toilet Paper Pumpkins

Today I’m sharing how to make adorable Toilet Paper Pumpkins for your holiday decorating. They are SO SIMPLE to assemble that you’ll be giddy when you do them! What I love most is that they will last all the way through Thanksgiving. No gluing, no sewing, no hard crafting is involved with the making of my toilet paper pumpkins.

2. Fall Signs

I don’t know about you, but I find that inspiration for projects comes from the most unexpected of places.  That certainly is the case with my DIY sign for fall.

3. Wood Pumpkin

Making wood pumpkins are a great way to save money while decorating your home for Fall and these little beauties took me less than 3 hours to make. Oh and it also helps if you save a lot of “good” junk. I used repurposed fence pickets, leftover hardware from some of my furniture projects and it paid off big!

4. Wooden Crate Pumpkins

Wooden Crate Pumpkins are so simple to make. The whole project took about an hour, and part of that was waiting for the paint to dry! You only need a few supplies to make these, and they look so neat on the porch too.

5. Dollar Store Leaf Bowl

It looks like an expensive farmhouse decoration instead of a cheap dollar store bowl. You could even add a vinyl design to the center part if you want and that would be super cute too!

This is a super easy craft. You’ll just need a wreath form and some yarn in fall colors.

8. Coffee Filter Fall Wreath

For this wreath I used the natural, unbleached filters. These filters can be found most anywhere.  I found them at Walmart, but most grocery stores carry them.

10. Heirloom Pumpkin

Painting your own pumpkins to resemble those beautiful heirloom pumpkins will save you time and money when you save them for the fall season each year. These pumpkins are hard to find and often expensive so I thought why not paint my own!

12. Fall Centerpiece

These cute little mini pumpkins are used throughout my house over and over again. My $7.99 investment has been well worth it. I grabbed my wooden dough bowl, dumped several of these pumpkins in and then added real pinecones from by neighborhood. My friend collected them for me while out on a walk. How lazy am I that I didn’t even get the pinecones myself.

13. Thanksgiving Pie Garland

Go ahead, cut a slice. (Or two, or three…) This paper garland — made to look like slices of apple and pumpkin pie — makes a sweet Thanksgiving decoration.

14. Book Page Leaves Fall Banner

If you’ve seen my fall mantel, you may have noticed the fall banner with book page leaves hanging down from the front. This little banner just almost told me what it wanted to be!

15. Pumpkin Topiary

My DIY fall pumpkin topiary is, of course, super simple. And it’s neutral fall colors make it the perfect decor for your home!

16. Modern Fall Wreath

I love the trend of minimalistic wreaths.  They’re simple, sleek, and elegant, a welcoming break from the overly busy grapevine wreaths.  Though, there’s nothing wrong with grapevine wreaths necessarily (I’ve made a few wreaths with them!).  I just like the minimalistic trend.

17. Burlap Bubble Wreath

I made my first burlap bubble wreath last year and I love how simple and pretty this kid of wreath is.  I love wreaths and think they make a home so much cozier, but I’m not a big fan of super big, sparkly ones with a million things going on.  I like wreaths relatively simple with a pop of color and lots of pretty texture! This particular wreath is super easy to make and you could add any sort of little “garnish” you like.

18. Fall Chalkboard

So this year I decided to go with a black and white theme for my Halloween decor. Which is really different for me! I usually do the standard orange, black, green, and purple. But I thought I’d mix things up a bit, just for fun! I’m still working on my Halloween mantel and a few other Halloween crafts.

19. Wine Cork Pumpkin

20. Burlap Table Runner

21. Cinnamon Stick Candles

This is such an easy craft that you’ll be able to do this project in less than twenty minutes!

22. Antler Decor for Holiday Table

With a monochromatic palette, there has to be texture to keep it from going flat. Notice the contrast of the creamy pumpkins against the driftwood-like patina of the oakwood. And how delicate the crepe-like hydrangeas look next to the antlers.

23. Fabric Tape Pumpkins

The pattern had come in a 3 pack I purchased from Michael’s a while ago, but I originally bought the pack for another pattern. In fact, I had purchased 2 of those packs, leaving me with 2 rolls of the brown plaid fabric tape which was now calling my name.

24. Cinnamon Scented Pinecones

Decorating with cinnamon-scented pinecones is a terrific way to both bathe your home in the intoxicating fragrance as well as bring a bit of nature indoors.


25. Pumpkin Flower Arrangements

It’s an elegant take on fall decorating: setting the table for Thanksgiving dinner, adorning the mantle for the season change, or even to give as gifts. I know I would love to receive one of these gorgeous pumpkins, and they will be just as rewarding to give!
