Have you decorated your home for fall yet? Some people decorate as soon as September 1st arrives while others wait until the official first day of autumn. No matter your preference, I have do-it-yourself fall décor projects that will keep your home warm and cozy.
Today, I will show you how to make a rustic rag tie garland. This garland is a versatile piece of fall décor. It can be a fireplace trimming, dining table runner, or coffee table centerpiece to name a few. The garland takes patience to create. However, if you recruit the help of your family, it can be completed quickly. It’s a way to craft and bond at the same time!
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18, KJV
September is here! It marks the unofficial start of fall for many people. They begin planning for cooler weather, early sunsets, and the holidays. While exciting, this season can also be a source of stress due to grief, finances, and pressure to finish the year strong.
As we enter the final stretch of 2022, I encourage you to practice gratitude daily. Find a reason to give God thanks. Thanksgiving places God above our hardships. When God is prioritized, He supplies our needs (Matthew 6:33). A grateful heart opens the door for our prayers to be answered.
Today’s do-it-yourself project is for a fall sign. You will learn how to make a stencil with a cutting machine and best practices for stenciling. If you do not have a cutting machine, stay tuned! I will post a tutorial on how to make stencils by hand soon.
Overall, I hope my Fall Sign DIY tutorial will remind you to always give thanks!
Thanksgiving is a few days away which means the fall season is coming to an end. I want to share one last fall project with you before the Christmas festivities kick into full gear. Instead of a DIY tutorial, I will show you the abstract art pumpkins I created to decorate my coffee table.
I used papier-mâché pumpkins, regular craft paint, and a little creativity to make these abstract decorations. When I first purchased these pumpkins, I imagined covering them in fabric or glitter. My goal was to create an unconventional fall craft that did not include autumn colors or patterns.
I was randomly scrolling through Instagram and found two unique nail art designs. The first was cow print and the other, bold geometric shapes. I decided to recreate the designs on the pumpkins rather than my nails.

Thanksgiving Day 2020 may not include your usual group of family or friends. This is not a reason to neglect the festiveness of the occasion. You can still create fall decorations that express gratitude to those you share a home with.
Today, I will show you how to make fabric pumpkins. This simple project requires inexpensive items that you can find around your home. Bond with family or roommates over this fall décor project by inviting them to make fabric pumpkins with you. Keep reading for the tutorial!
My favorite seasonal decorations are rustic fall signs. They are a wonderful way to embrace the cozy and festive atmosphere of autumn. These signs are easy to create! In today’s blog post, I will give you a detailed walk through of how to make a rustic fall sign.
To start, you need to draft a quick sketch of your sign. What shape do you want it to be? What do you want it to say? What colors will you use? These are all questions I answered before making my sign. I searched Pinterest for inspiration, specifically for cute messages. In the end, I decided to make two rectangular shaped rustic signs. One with the message “Autumn Skies, Pumpkin Pies” and the other with “Pumpkin Kisses, Harvest Wishes”.
After planning the logistics, gather your materials. Here is a list of everything I needed:
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” – Galatians 6:9, NKJV
Today is the official start of pumpkin spice- caramel apple- sweater- scarf- and boots- season. It’s the first day of autumn! In the past, I defined autumn by its marketable attributes. Only in recent years have I come to appreciate the fullness of autumn. The temperature is pleasant, the sunsets are more beautiful, and the air seems to be fresher. Most importantly, autumn is harvest season!
Here’s what I found when I looked up the definition of autumn:
Thanksgiving is almost here! Between finalizing the guest list and grocery shopping, it’s easy to forget about the decorations.

What do you imagine when you think of fall decor? I think of pumpkins, scarecrows, and anything related to Halloween. Boring, right? Thankfully, fall decor is getting a much needed upgrade. Visit Home Goods or Target and see for yourself! Fall decor is now inspired by everything from rustic farmhouses to unicorns. Designers even incorporate unconventional color schemes.
When fall arrives you expect for the temperature to drop 10 to 20 degrees, leaves to change color and flutter from the trees, and for the local coffee shop to offer your favorite spiced drinks.
Well, fall began over a month ago and only one of those three things has happened here in Texas. I’ll give you a hint- it wasn’t the first two.
I’m not going to complain because to be honest, if it were cold, I’d wish it were hot outside. I’ll let Mother Nature do her thing and patiently wait for cooler temperatures. In the meantime, I’ll craft up fall decorations to help me get into the fall spirit.
