Did you love waking up this morning after the time change yesterday? With the end of Daylight Savings Time, fall is truly in the air! We excited about the fall colors and texture in these festive harvest projects done by our friends Cathie & Steve. They give us the full step-by-step on how to create these four projects:
Halloween and Thanksgiving are the main holidays that people decorate for during the fall season. This should not mean that they are the only reasons to decorate during this time of year. You may want to consider using the traditional harvest color tones as a palette to decorate a room in your home with. Take this room pictured above. It looks so warm and inviting. Don’t you just want to grab a good book and some hot chocolate, and curl up in the chair by the fireplace? Use these harvest months as design inspiration for a room in your home. Get out of the comfort zone of only decorating during the fall when one of the major holidays comes around. Click here to see more harvest decorating room design inspirations.
This palette was created using FolkArt acrylic paint colors: #476 Asphaltum, #953 Camel, # 2579 Cut Grass, and # 957 Burgundy.
Yay! I don’t know about you, but I am so glad that summer is ending, and fall is fast approaching. The summer weather here in Atlanta for the past few months has been unbearable. The fall months will definitely offer a much needed cool down for us. With my anticipation for the fall season, I began to think about fall themed interiors. There are such wonderful color palettes to create from fall themed colors, and use in a room. A palette that caught my attention was from this living room I found on a home interior decorating blog called, Well Order. I really love the mixture of light and dark colors. This room definitely screams fall. It is vibrant, yet soothing. I hope this palette inspires you to add some touches of fall to the room of your choice.

Summer is on the way out, and fall fast approaching. I thought this was a great project to create, in order to usher in and welcome autumn. It is very simple to make, and great for either a beginner crafter or an experienced one. This project will take you between 30 minutes to one hour to complete.
Sand wood blocks, base coat with a white primer. Base coat with Vintage White. Using a white candle, rub the wax on the edges of the block. Basecoat with Autumn Leaves. When the blocks are completely dry, sand the edges where the candle wax was applied. Lay the front of the blocks on the back of the paper and trace.
Mix 1 part water with 1 part Coffee Bean. Using either a soft clean rag or paper towel rub the mixture to the blocks to give an aged look. Cut out the papers and apply to the front of the blocks with Matte Mod Podge.
Stencil the letters to the front of the block with Pure Black. Apply another coat of Mod Podge to the blocks.
Apply another coat of Mod Podge to the entire block. Thread a few buttons with twine and tie in a knot. Hot glue the buttons to the block as shown.
