For me, Fall is the best time of year! Something about the crispness in the air, the cooler days, and the changing colors makes me want to get cozy in my home after a busy summer. I can finally turn my oven back on to do some baking, and I can enjoy the cozy warmth of my fireplace on these chilly mornings!
The enjoyment of my fireplace going again as Thanksgiving approaches has given me the inspiration to do some Fall décor, so I took to the World Wide Web for some ideas and thought I would share what I found.
I loved the idea of creating a thankful banner (like the one pictured above), and why not make your own? Get crafty and try it out! And just incase being crafty isn’t a natural talent of yours here’s a little help:
If you have an old wood fireplace that you no longer use, or maybe young children around and want to avoid building a fire then you could easily fill it with different colors and sizes of pumpkins.
Adding some pumpkins to your unused wood fireplace can
add a touch of Fall to your home via (http://www.hiphipgingin.com/2010/10/04/fireplace-pumpkins/)
I love the vintage look of this mantel with the use of the different colors and sizes of pumpkins on the candleholders and the touch of the Fall foliage in the pitcher. You might even have some of these things laying around the house that you could use in your own mantel creation.
Fall decorating can be done using common things around your home.
Hopefully that gives you a little inspiration in your own Fall décor. You can make it as simple or intricate as you’d like, and it really doesn’t have to cost much. Try and repurpose things you already have in your home, and it may not cost anything!
Do you have any fun Fall or Thanksgiving décor tips that you want to share? Leave it in the comments; we would love to hear how you get your home ready for the season!
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Mr. Fireplace
