It’s officially Fall in the Henry home. Granted the first day of Fall was a few weeks ago, but with temperatures still averaging the mid seventies, I wasn’t in a rush to move Summer along. My family and I visited HomeGoods recently to start shopping for some decor for our seasonal home makeover. I wrote about it here. It’s taken me a little time to get everything updated, but now that it is, I wanted to take you on my Fall home tour, and offer some tips to help you bring the warmth of the season into your home too.
1. A LITTLE IS ALL IT TAKES
You don’t have to go overboard here. Just a few Fall themed accents are enough to refresh your home for the season. Pumpkins are the season’s go to decor accessory/flavor/food….pumpkin overload anyone?! If you’re not a lover, try accenting your home with deer antlers, leaves, or cotton stems.
Adding some texture like burlap, faux florals, a rust colored toss pillow, or throw gives the room more warmth.
I love adding handmade touches to our home. I came across this idea for my Fall wreath on a recent Pinterest binge session and decided to give it a try!
This DIY Indian Corn Wreath wasn’t as easy as I originally imagined, but it’s still beautiful and worth the effort! The hot glue wasn’t working for me (it was my first time using it), so I opted for industrial glue from The Home Depot (I was a little paranoid that the indian corn wouldn’t stay glued). I also found it easier to glue the corn onto a flat surface rather than directly onto the straw wreath, so I cut out a piece of cardboard in the shape of the wreath and glued the corn directly to it, and then glued the cardboard onto the wreath. I waited a day in between these two steps to allow the glue to dry completely. I also coated the corn with clear wood stain to prevent animals from coming up for a nibble at the front door.
3. ADD FRESH FLOWERS
Ok, so now doesn’t exactly seem like the perfect time to be thinking of fresh flowers, but look at the beauty of these potted mums flanking the front door! The perfect complement to our grand wreath!
