When the first chill is upon us, that is a sign that autumn is fast approaching. Before the temperatures drop, I start planning on ways to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere for our home. Luckily, there are many inexpensive ways to feather your nest. Now is a great time to raid your craft closet and bring out regular household items that you might have otherwise forgotten about. Think of textured items – such as balls of yarn, twine, pine cones, and more!
When you arrange these elements together, they suddenly make for a decorative and eye-catching display. Use your imagination and gather various items in a basket, a wooden bowl, or a wooden tray (like the one I used). Mugs could also be used for smaller displays, or ceramic pots for slightly bigger presentations. Since fall is all about texture and wonderful colors, choose hues that compliment the season – such as gold, wheat, green, and ruby tones.
Don’t forget to add a few pine cones, balls of twine, and anything else that you think will set the mood. I set a small bowl of candies amongst everything, for those evenings when we want something a little sweet. Even a lovely scented candle would make a nice addition! Once you have gathered everything together, display them on a coffee or side table. They will look adorable!
Piling on the pillows is another fun and easy way to add colorful accents to your home. Plus, pillows are a great way to softly cradle your head while you enjoy a much-needed afternoon nap. I can’t think of a better way to welcome fall in stylish comfort!
