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.

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:

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:
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.
