Easy Fall Decor

Share It:

Today was a little crisp, a tad chilly, carrying a hint of fall!  It was lovely and I took the opportunity to add a touch of fall to our house!  But I'm not ready to go into the basement and carry up boxes, pack other knick-knacks away, blah, blah, blah. Instead I threw together some really easy and cheap autumn decorations. I intend to add in some pumpkins and apples to it all too. But for now, here is an easy fall decor idea that will add a hint of the upcoming season to your home.

I gathered up some sticks from our backyard and broke them to be about the same size. Then I looped a satin ribbon in a gorgeous chocolate color around the bundle and nestled it atop some fake foliage. It took me, oh, 12 seconds.

But I would like to show you how I like to tie things that tend to slide or scatter around. 

I lay my ribbon or string over the bundle.

I bring both tails of the ribbon underneath the bundle.

Then I bring the tails back up and tie my knot or bow. This makes it look nicer too because there is an even width of ribbon under the knot or bow. 

I placed my little bundle on some leaves with my favorite chunky candle holders that I like to keep on my barrister bookcase.

I know this isn't rocket surgery but then again, I don't blog about that.

Are you adding touches of fall to your home yet or are you still holding onto the last wisps of summer?
