Since moving into my apartment, I've been excited to decorate it for holidays. My one rule for fall decor is that it can't be scary. I don't want to decorate my house with something that could scare someone: homes are supposed to make you happy! Pumpkins, cute ghosts, and fall foliage are all right up my alley. Can I just make all of these fun fall crafts?
Glittered Pinecones from Making Lemonade // This is posted as a winter craft, but I think it would work for both fall and winter if you used gold or bronze glitter in addition to the silver glitter. I would arrange these pinecones in a large hurricane vase to make a pretty table centerpiece.
Leaf Garland from Pretty My Party // How gorgeous is this leaf garland? It would look lovely draped over mantles, railings, cabinets, and more. Be sure to use lots of sealant (Mod Podge or spray) on the leaves to keep glitter from getting all over your house.
Chalky Painted Pumpkins from At Home with the Barkers // These pretty neutral pumpkins look straight out of a Pottery Barn catalog! I think painted pumpkins usually look strange (chevron? damask? what?!) but I think I like these because they still look like pumpkins.
Mason Jar Ghosts from Number 2 Pencil // I love anything mason jar-related (#basic) and these ghosts are absolutely precious. Remove the googley eyes after Halloween is over (and maybe keep them in the jars for next year), and you have some pretty storage jars to use all year-round.
Stay tuned for a post about how I decorated my apartment for fall and Halloween!
