Halloween and Fall Decor

Happy Fall Y’all!  Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the cooler weather.  This week the hubs is headed home, so it will be especially sweet at the Johnson household.

Last week we were outdoors, so this week we are moving inside and checking out a few great ideas for decorating your home for the fall season.  The pictures below have clickable links that will take you to the source.

via  www.marthastewart.com  This is an option for those who have little ones that are scared of jack-o-lanterns.  These are made of daikon radishes and turnips, and an easy project to make with the kiddos.

via  www.MarthaStewart.com  To make this you need: miniature gourds, a drill with a fine bit, and twine. Drill a hole through the center of each gourd. Thread twine through an embroidery needle; run it through the holes, knotting it at both sides of each gourd to secure in place. Click on the picture complete step-by-step instructions.  This garland is great for indoors or out.

via www.marthastewart.com  This is a great option if you are going for a more formal look, great for Halloween or Thanksgiving.  All you need to accomplish this look is a can of silver spray paint and pumpkins in various sizes.

via www.countryliving.com Love the colors in the wreath and rug.

via  www.southernliving.com  How about this festive retreat to enjoy your morning cup of coffee.  These lovely mantle arrangements are a combination of autumn leaves, hydrangea, berries, oak and magnolia leaves.

via  www.southernliving.com  An arrangement like this is alway sitting on my dining room table as soon as the leaves start to turn, the bigger the better.   Branches of leaves cut from the yard,  can’t get any more affordable or beautiful.

via www.marthastewart.com  How about this half bat, half pumpkin pace setting?
