Ready for Autumn: Top 10 Fall Projects


Hello friends! I don't know about you, but I am ready for autumn to be here! Fall is my very favorite time of year, and I can't wait til there's a chill in the air, leaves on the ground, and pumpkins to decorate. Unfortunately in Kansas, it stays pretty warm even through September. It's still in the upper 90s now, but I know fall will arrive soon!

I've already started a few projects so I can be ready to decorate in September. Pinterest was of course my biggest source of inspiration. Here are the projects I'm planning to do come September. My goal is to complete all 10 at some point. (follow the link below each picture for instructions on each of these projects.)

Top 10 Fall Projects

10. Pumpkin Urn


I think one of the easiest ways to decorate for fall is simply to place a pumpkin in an urn and surround it with Spanish moss. It would make a great centerpiece or mantle focal point.

9. Ichabod Pumpkin


I love decorating in black and white for Halloween. This Ichabod pumpkin is the perfect mix of classy and spooky. Now if I can just find an old top hat...

8. Lace Pumpkin


So easy! Just pop a white pumpkin in black lace stocking. Instant Halloween decor!

7. Wheat Wreath



Martha has an easy tutorial on how to make a wheat wreath. I also love the version in the second picture from A Country Farmhouse.

6. Halloween Banner



I think the use of newspaper for Halloween crafts is brilliant! I only wish I had a chippy white piano to display it on : )

5. Burlap Monogram


This project seems so easy, and it could be used year-round.

4. Doily Pumpkin


All you need are pumpkins, paper doilies and spray paint and you have a pretty autumn accessory.

3. Book Page Pumpkin


This would add the perfect vintage touch for fall.

2. Glitter Pumpkin Candle Holders


These could be used in so many ways, including as part of a centerpiece for Thanksgiving. I love decorations that can be used across autumn, Halloween and Thanksgiving looks.

1. Silhouette Pumpkins


This is my favorite autumn project and I'm so excited to try it! I think the look is gorgeous!


I hope I can get all these fun projects accomplished! Of course I'll share the finished results when I'm done!

So how about you? Do you wait each year for fall to come around, or do you hate to see summer go (like my husband)? Do you have any fall projects planned?
