Pinterest Taught Me How To – Vol. VI

Welcome to this Friday’s “Pinterest Taught Me How To”: Fall Edition.  Yes, it seems everyone is talking about Fall, though it definitely still feels like summer here in Texas.  (which by the way, I LOVE – I will take 100 degrees over 30 any day of the week!)

Of course, I can still get into the Fall spirit, especially when I take in all of this fun Fall decor.  Enjoy!

1.  How To Wear The Fall Trends 2013 – Yes, I know you are DYING to know the Fall trends for this year so here you have them.  My thoughts…I could definitely get into the “Rustic American” look.  Also, I will always love wool shorts and tights.  P.S.  I ADORE the outfit above, though I like things a bit more simple when it comes to jewelry.

2.  How To Make A Fall Leaf Pillow – Switching out pillows is an easy way to add instant holiday style to a room.  I have a few festive pillows of my own I bring out every year, but I thought this pillow was cute and easy.  The author purchased her large felt leaf at a dollar store (is anyone else surprised by this?!  My dollar store would not have anything this cute!), but it would be a breeze to make your own with a felt sheet from any craft store.

3.  How To Make A Pumpkin Planter – I always like finding new centerpiece ideas, and this one is very pleasing.  For my table, I would use two or three different sized pumpkins that were not of the same variety.  Greenery like rosemary or a flowy fern would be my choices for the plant coming from the pumpkin.  I would want it to feel earthy and natural.

Of course, these would be really nice outside, too.

3.  How To Make A Burlap Wreath – Turn your love of burlap into a wreath for your front door or mantle.  This would be a terrific project for all of the fun holiday burlap they sell at Joanns!  I especially like the bright orange wreath!

4.  How To Make A Concrete Pumpkin – I have never worked with concrete before, but I have really been wanting to try it for the last six months or so.  What I love about this tutorial is you are creating something you can take out year after year.  I feel like Fall decor is a lot of throw-away stuff (pumpkins, gourds, etc.), and this is a good way to be a little more green in your autumn decorating.  (plus you’ll save a little green in the long run)  The concrete pumpkin planter and the concrete jack o’lantern paired together is so great!  Well done, Fox Hollow Cottage!

5.  How To Create A Simple Fall Front Porch – I still love my Fall porch decor from last year.  You really can’t go wrong with pumpkin topiaries.

    I love all the pumpkins. Every fall I make a pumpkin planter for our dining room – one of my favorites. Happy weekend!
