Fall decorating doesn’t have to necessarily be store bought, you probably have most of these items in your home or yard. I tend to believe that the more subtle, natural decorations bring the most comfort. Let me share my 8 Farmhouse Finds for Fall and you can see how many of these pieces you already have lying around!
8 Farmhouse Finds for Fall
- Feathers! Yes, that’s right. How often do you use feathers in seasonal decorating? I think they go best with autumn. Turkey feathers and pheasant feathers are an excellent choice and can be found in craft stores and even Ebay! You can tuck them into wreaths, centerpieces, chandeliers and put them in vases. They are especially stunning in old silver trophies.
- Ok, you know I’m going to say it! I always say it. Vintage Books. They are like throw pillows, you can’t get enough! Snag the tan, gray and red ones when you are out thrifting.
- Blankets– grab all the plaid, flannel, knit and wool ones that you have on hand. Quilts are wonderful, too!
- Nature- bring it inside. Cut some leaves, pick up some kale and mums. Antlers, acorns, wheat and pumpkins are all gorgeous grouped together. And if all else fails, head to the store and buy some apples!
- Candles, candles and more candles- The early evenings and dropping temperatures call for some warmth and light. Group your candles together and set up any lanterns you have. I recommend the candles from Park Hill and Antique Candle Works.
- Boots! Raid your closet for all your boots, especially rubber boots. Set some on the porch, line them up by the back door or near a bench. They can do double duty as decor and shoes this time of year!
- String Lights- These will even transition nicely into Christmas and wintertime. If you have a patio or covered porch try stringing lights in a zig zag pattern overhead. Then, light some candles and have a cozy chair to sit in. I promise you , people will find their way out to read a book or work on homework under the twinkling lights.
- Firewood- It doesn’t take much, even six logs will do. Stack them by the front door, pile them in a basket or place them near a fireplace.
So, what do you think? I bet you could track down some boots, leaves, blankets and candles to get you started! Seasonal decorating doesn’t need to be overwhelming, keep it fun and simple. It’s a form of celebration and deserves a place in the home, even on a tiny scale. I think you find that it is worth the extra effort!
