Fall Mantel with Glass Acorns

Fall Mantel with Glass Acorns

When we got back from our trip up north, I tried to get the house ready for fall and Halloween. I thought of many ways to decorate the mantel but I wanted it to last past Halloween. So I decided not to add any Halloween specific decor.

Fall Candle Holder from a Lamp Base

Fall Candle Holder  from a Lamp Base

A few months back, I pulled a wicker lamp out of the neighbors junk pile. The cord had been cut off but the rest of the parts where there. I keep lamp parts so I took it apart. The lamp shade was "toast" and I really didn't want it. 

The base of the lamp was wicker and in good shape, but I didn't like the color (sort of dirty blond).  Sorry, I don't have a picture of the original lamp base. I didn't think I would be using the base. I put it aside for awhile.

Then one day I found the wicker base and had an idea.  I found some brown spray paint. I got so excited that I forgot to take a before picture. While the paint was drying, I headed to A. C. Moore for a couple of items.

Fall Decor Using Easter Eggs

Fall Decor Using Easter Eggs

I actually made this fall arrangement a couple of years ago. I found them as I was going through some boxes in my garage. I thought I would share them with you in case you missed them the first time.

Fall Sunflower Wreaths

New Sunflower Wreaths

While we were in Vermont, the weather was cool and I got into the fall spirit. So when I came home, I decided to update the plain green moss wreaths that were left on my front doors. 

I thought about buying new ones, but figured I could just add flowers and they would be fine and I was right. You have to use what you have.

Decorative Stacked Pumpkins

I love those fall and Halloween stacked pumpkins but they are expensive. I was looking through several magazines and they can be as high as $200+. Yikes! No way I am paying that so I thought of a way to make one for myself.

Easter Eggs as Fall Decor?

My husband and I are recovering from Irma's destruction, I haven't had time to put my things back outside because of all of the downed trees.  Hoping to start this week. 

As we were moving things in the garage, I found these plastic eggs. I set them aside and the next day I thought about what I could do with them. Could I use them as fall decor?

These 6 eggs were the bigger ones, around four inches
in length. I decided to turn them into acorns.

Fall Update of Grey Rocking Chairs

Remember those great free rocking chairs I got from my neighbor? Well, we use them all the time and I wanted to give them a fall update. I had hoped to post this before Halloween, but that never happened. As you can see, I had a Halloween pillow on one of the rockers. It has since been removed.

I created the Autumn banner by cutting up some fabric I had - brown and tan canvas.

 I cut some rectangles and then folded them to cut some points.

Then I used letters that I had purchased from Walmart that I used in my Fall plaque.
I placed the letter on the fabric and then used a magic marker to fill in the letter.

I attached the letters to some twine with my hot glue gun. I had purchased the basket at Long and Scott Farms for $2 - lid included. 
Eclectic Red Barn: Tea and fall accessories
We have tea out here in the evenings while the dogs play and we talk about our day.

These rocking chairs are just great and we are using them all the time. Not bad for something free. 
What shall I do with them for Christmas?
