Hair-Raising Fall Home Tour

| | | | | | | |

Are you rushed to get fall decorating done?  Today I’m helping by giving you simple but unique ideas for fall.  Our fall home decor this year borrowed items from a cow, destroyed silk flowers, and hair-raising ideas.

Please come on in for fall home tour.

Fall Home Tour

Fall Home Tour nesting tables | Country Design Style |

We started the nesting tables at our front door.  Okay, one is the stool!  I topped them with a galvanized bucket of pumpkins.  I tucked in bleach pinecones here and there.

The mantel

Our living room mantle wraps around to the entry.  I painted this faux pumpkin in soft salmon color, then a gray.  Light sanding reveals the color underneath.  I removed the plastic fake stem and replaced it with an antique cow tag.

Fall Home Tour pile of fall leaves | Country Design Style |

The simple idea is my favorite fall the decor this year.  I spent an evening watching TV and painting autumn leaves.  I was looking for softer autumn colors like salmon and gray.  Couldn’t find them so I painted them.  I gathered a pile of autumn leaves and placed them under a cloche.

Dining Room

Running down our dining room table is my destroyed silk flower table runner.  Since the table runner is rather busy, I placed a narrow board the length of the table on top.  The board was aged instantly then I lightly sprayed the board in gray.  Again, since the table runner is busy, I added three small chunky candles.

Below is the free printable to aging wood…

Our DIY Mantels

Fall Home Tour burlap leaves and junk pumpkins | Country Design Style |

The scrap wood mantel is junked up more with a vintage spindle, an old chippy frame {that I need to repaint…someday} and scrap pumpkins.   Thank you, readers, for suggesting mixing burlap leaves with silk leaves!

Fall Home Tour stiffened burlap | Country Design Style |

I created more burlap leaves this year.  And found an easier way than cutting through Mod Podge.  I grabbed very strong hairspray to hold the burlap from fraying.

And I do mean…

Strong hairspray!!!  This hairspray had my flat hair-raising. 😀

Fall Home Tour organ mantel | Country Design Style |

The organ mantel has the softest colors.  I started with my rustic box and filled most of the cubbies.  The acorn is another favorite project.  You can usually find an acorn on display any time of the year.  The 5-minute rope pumpkin found a spot and I tucked in the grateful sign.   I scattered more autumn leaves and snaked the clay beads around.

The smells I wish I could smell

Fall Home Tour potpourri | Country Design Style |

A small dish holds more painted fall leaves and clay leaves potpourri next to my bed.  Mike likes the soft smell…my nose quit working…but I like the look! 😀
