It has been a while, hasn’t it! Forgive me for ghosting you as much as I have the last few months! Turns out, 4 small kids are a lot of work and my focus is right where it should have been, with my family. But now we’re in a pretty good rhythm which means more time to create and share (yay!)
My porch is where I like to experiment with pops of color during fall but indoors, it’s pretty much the classic fall orange, yellow, brown and red that I LOVE. This year, I wanted a change, so I went with all things Halloween! It looks so fun around here! Lots of color which I love. Check out some of the Halloween decor I chose!
Hobby Lobby really came through this year with their Halloween decor. I found this sign, the ghosts and festive feather trees there.
Remember the farmhouse doors that Shara from Woodshop Diaries made for me? They are the perfect place to hang seasonal wreaths. This one I made with deco mesh that I also found at Hobby Lobby. (If you want some instruction on how to create a deco mesh wreath, click here.) What I love about deco mesh is that messy is good. Just play and you’re bound to create something you love!
Between the two doors, I hung some super cute felt witch garland. You’ll never guess where I found it…give up? That’s right, good ol’ Hobby Lobby.
There were a few things that didn’t come from Hobby Lobby if you can believe it. These adorable “Boo” pillow came from Kohl’s, the beautiful orange velvet pillow behind it was a World Market find, and even though the curtains weren’t intentionally for Halloween, they fit in perfectly and came from Pier 1.
It’s almost October! I feel like I blinked and the year was gone. How are your fall decorations coming along? Honestly, I’m behind. I took a long break trying to get all the kids back to school and am just now getting back at it. How about you? Need some ideas? Check out what these 10 great bloggers came up with! (Links below the pictures.)
Fabric and ribbon-wrapped wreaths are the perfect pop of color to your porch and they require very little skill. If you can wrap fabric around a styrofoam wreath, you’re in luck. The trick is picking your favorite fabric.
I found this pretty fall fabric at Hobby Lobby which looks fantastic with the rest of my porch, (reveal next week). The ribbon and floral embellishments, also from Hobby Lobby. All you need to do is buy a yard of fabric, cut it into 1-2″ strips, and wrap an entire styrofoam wreath with it, securing the pieces with tacky glue or hot glue along the way.
Once you’ve done that step, add your embellishments!
Add a cute little fall bow and a ribbon hanger and your wreath is complete! Cute right? If you need some more fall wreath inspiration be sure to check out the Seasonal Wreath page. There’s tons of ideas and tutorials there!

If you’re looking for a the perfect homemade gift for a parent, grandparent, teacher, or caretaker, you are going to love this one. Pictures make great gifts, especially when a cute picture is coupled with an adorable frame. The ‘Love You to Pieces’ idea actually came from Sophie’s first grade teacher. It was just too clever not to share! Making the picture frame is simple.
Just take an empty picture frame and glue puzzle pieces around it.
Then, take a picture of your child holding a sign that says ‘I Love You to Pieces” (I made mine on PicMonkey. You can easily make one on Word or write it by hand). Print out the picture, put it in the frame and your gift is ready to go!
Isn’t it cute? And so easy! For more great gift ideas for Christmas, check out the Homemade Gifts page!
