Touches of Fall to our Nest

I love Fall! Love orange and pumpkins and Halloween and changing leaves and Football... and I could go on and on. We got married in the fall and it was perfect. Perfect weather and perfect use of lots of fall decor at our reception. Anyway, I also love lots of fall decorations in our home.

With our busy, crazy lives, I finally got a few touches of fall up around the house and I wanted to share!
 Decorating the mantel is always a favorite. I like arranging and re-arranging {weird I know!} and figuring our what I need to make for finishing touches. 
I found this free fall printable here.  
"A life without love is like a year without Fall." Isn't that saying so true?
They have tons of cute ones and they're so easy to print one out, or get inspired and make your own print! I love finding ideas and re-creating my own art that fits our home and our colors.  
After finishing the arranging and re-arranging on the mantel, I knew my window need another touch, so I made bunting from left-over burlap scraps. I just free handed with black puffy paint the word "Fall" and attached to some jute with miniature close-pins. Very easy and quick, but I think it added so much. I am in love with bunting these days! 
 And it definitely isn't fall without several pumpkin spice candles!
I made an easy Fall wreath that I threw together with a $1 stick/vine wreath from Target (the dollar section is SERIOUSLY the best. Can't walk into target without browsing for a craft idea!) I loved them then, and I'm thankful now that I held on to a couple! I painted the tiny wooden "H" {$1 from Michael's} a dark Orange color with acrylic paint, and attached to the wreath with hot glue. Whole project took less than 5 minutes! 
It isn't fall without fresh gourds and pumpkins! Each one is so unique. 
Is it fall in your home too? I am hoping as Caroline grows up she enjoys helping me put out fun decorations each year and remembers all the fun of pull our special memories. I sure remember loving when my mom decorated for each holiday :) Happy Fall!
