– a stained wooden crate. I used Jacobean from Minwax
– a gold chain (I found a spool of it in the ribbon section at my craft store)
– faux leather stripes
– pretty lace and ribbon in fall colors
– mini chalkboard
After fastening the mini chalkboard to the gold chain, I nailed 2 nails on each side of the crate for the chain to attach to. Isn’t that SO cute? I’m in love with this crate and all of its possibilities! Think Christmas time using sparkly ornaments or pine cones!!
You can totally be creative on how you incorporate your materials. I hot glued the faux leather to the bales of hay and used double sided tape on the candlestick. I want to be able to use it again without the leather
I mixed the pretty ribbon and burlap pieces throughout the whole table.
Thanks Mallory and Savannah for having me over on your blog today! I have been a long time reader so this was a blast!!
Hey everyone! It’s Courtney from Paperelli. I know, I know… Summer isn’t officially over yet, but I am already counting down the days till Fall begins. Cooler weather, leaves changing color, apple picking and warm tasty soups! This month I am sharing a Free Fall Printable to help you decorate for this beautiful time of year!
Pears are one of my favorite things to decorate with in the Fall. The colors are always beautiful, eye-catching and classy.
Print, frame, and place next to your favorite fall decorations.
What is your favorite part of the Fall season?

Today I’m going to re-share a tutorial I posted a few years ago for my Burlap Halloween wreath. I used my own tutorial and created a Fall version. I thought I’d include the tutorial for those that may have missed it!
Hi! I finally finished my fall mantel! Well, my shelf. ha! I don’t have a real mantel so I use my Ballard inspired shelf I made as my mantel in my living room.
I wanted to do a traditional looking mantel that would last all of October and November. One of my favorite things about Fall is the gorgeous color that is everywhere! I love the oranges, golds, reds and browns!
I saw this sign on Ella Claire blog and knew I really wanted a similar one. I used my Silhouette to make a vinyl stencil, stuck it on the painted board and painted the letters with acrylic craft paints. When it was almost dry, I peeled off the vinyl and voila! Easy! I also sanded it when everything was dry to get a more rustic look.
The fall foliage topiary was a 90% off find at Hobby Lobby last winter. I think I paid $4 for it! SCORE! The pumpkin too. It was less than a $1 with the 90% off discount! Seriously, stock up after Thanksgiving on your fall decor. Hobby Lobby has crazy cheap prices for their cute stuff!
The books came from the thrift store for $.89 each. I think they bring a lot of character to the display.
It really is super simple! The roll of burlap garland was from Joann’s and it is $8.99 and I used a 50% off coupon. I used one roll for my ruffled garland and it made about 5-6 feet of ruffled garland once it was all put together.
