Fall Decor House Tour

Fall has arrived in the Fox Valley and I’ve been decorating the house. Or as Squishy says “You are making it Halloween in here!” I’ve been taking photos as I’ve finished areas, so I thought I would take you on a little fall decor house tour! Let’s start at the front door, shall we?

front steps decorated for fall, pumpkin stack, scarecrow
It’s Scarecrow Fest weekend, so we added a little guy that Squishy named Harvey. We’re waiting for someone to show up on our doorstep worried about the toddler left out in the cold. The pumpkin stack and gourd are from Frank Pumpkin Farm near Atkinson, IL.

Yes, those are rats on the steps. Aren’t they cute? They’re Martha Stewart from Michael’s. They were on sale and I had a coupon, so I just couldn’t resist them.

polka dot garland, copper leaf cookie cutters, fall decor, gourds
This banner was from the dollar spot at Target. I’ve had the copper cookie cutters for years. I’m still thinking of adding to the banner, but just haven’t gotten around to it.

I ordered the “Spooky” garland from an Etsy seller about 6 years ago. The Home Sweet Home sign is from Uncommon Handmade I picked it up from them at Renegade Craft Fair in 2012.

I love this little guy! We found him at Paper Trail in Rhinebeck, NY back in 2007.

I just finished the “Eek” garland for the living room 2 days ago. I’m thinking of making similar garlands available soon. I really enjoy making them! Keep an eye on my Instagram feed for news about that.

The bookcase I’ve left fairly normal, except for the leaf cut book.

I love this little spot in the kitchen with a milk glass cake stand from a sweet friend and my favorite Hall bowl filled with apples from our orchard trip.

And finally, the dining room!

My mom sent the strip of fabric home with me after our last visit. I frayed the edges and smoothed it out. It took only a few minutes and cost nothing! I had really loved the burlap runners and table cloths that I have seen at Pottery Barn & Crate and Barrel this season. This was much more…umm… budget friendly.

I just made a new “Give Thanks” garland for the dining room. “Boo” has been moved down to the family room.

Hopefully you’ll be seeing more of those very soon!
Thanks for coming by! I hope you enjoyed my mini house tour! Have a great weekend! We’re off to enjoy the leaves and Scarecrow Fest!
