Happy FALL YALL! I am finally showing you my shelf that I decorated in the kitchen for the Fall holidays. I’ve been showing little tid bits of different projects on Facebook and Instagram so I am excited to be done with this shelf. Fun part will be getting in the attic and decorating the rest of our house!
Monday is almost over and guess what? That means we are are closer to the weekend! Sometimes I find myself counting down the day’s till the weekend. I mean what’s so bad about the week? I think it’s because of work. (haahaa)
I’ve been seeing a lot of Fall decor lately so I figured I would follow the trend. I mean it is FALL YALL! There is only ONE problem with Fall. I am not a huge fan of all the “traditional” Fall colors. EEEK. Did I just say that? When I was growing up our house was always decorated, especially for the holidays. For some reason I only remember my mom decorating in the “traditional” Fall colors, which was really pretty but a little boring to a bright and whimsical girl like me. I swoon over FALL colors every time I see them but I just can’t do it. I mean, look at my kitchen wall color. It’s turquoise. I also added some rustic stars, vintage jars, a vintage “yellow” can and some vintage gas station numbers to my kitchen decor.
Let take a look at what FALL look’s like in my head…
I am loving red and orange together lately!
I was totally inspired by my [friend] Stephen with this. Stephen is one of the judges on TLC’S craft wars and he does ton’s of this in his new book “Glitterville’s Handmade Halloween”. Trust me you NEED this book! Buy it here. I think the black and white make everything else in my kitchen POP. I painted on real wood so it feels warm and cozy when I look at them. (tutorial coming this week)
I love my homemade vases because you can actually add water in them! I will be posting a tutorial this week on how I made them. I can’t even express how inexpensive this craft is. When I think of Fall I think of natural things. Paper feels natural to me and that is why I used this on my shelf.
What else SCREAM’S FALL like mini flags with mini clothespins! Again I went with natural colors here since I have ton’s of other things bursting with color. I used black and white bakers twine to go along with my black and white FALL theme. You can order mini clothespins in my ETSY shop.
I am loving this print I made the other day. Yes it’s a silk screen. Yes I made it at my house. Yes you can too. Stay tuned for this tutorial because all I will say is you will be purchasing the machine I made it with!
This is a mirror I made a while back but I thought the black and white went with my theme. See the tutorial here. If you follow my blog then you already know my LOVE for black and white. I think I love it because it allows me to add POP’S of color all over! Remember my bedroom walls and my napkin flags?
How could a live plant not feel like FALL! The fresh green just makes me smile plus it adds good energy in the house!
The rest of the week I will show you tutorial’s on everything I made for my kitchen decor so make sure and come back!
