With school back in session and the first high school football game behind us, I am beginning to think of fall. Sad, because I hate to leave the care free days of summer. Exciting, because fall is one of my favorite seasons. The air is crisp without being so cold a jacket is needed. The wonderful smells of pumpkin and apples being baked into amazing desserts. Oh and readying our home for the cold winter months ahead. Gone will be the simplicity and minimalism of summer decor. I will bring out the warm, comfy throws. Then decorate each room to cozy goodness.
Top 5 Fall Recipes And DIY Projects
I put together my five favorite fall posts. I included some recipes, a DIY project and some printables. These are easy projects to get ready for fall or autumn which is the proper term for the season. Right?
Chalkboard Fall Printable
This is my most popular printable. Just print it at home and pop it in a frame or hang it on your memo board or clipboard. Great fall decor.
Baked Pumpkin Donuts
These donuts are a must bake on a crisp, fall Saturday morning. The aroma just beckons fall. Have these with a cup of your favorite hot beverage on the porch watching the leaves fall. Perfect way to start the weekend.
Deco Mesh Burlap Fall Wreath
Speaking of porches, I made this wreath with the chalkboard sign to hang on our front door. It is made with deco mesh ribbon so it does well outside. I am thinking of adding some fall flowers to it this year to change it some. That’s the beauty of DIY. You can make this anyway you want.
Chalkboard Subway Art Fall Printable
This printable I placed on a burlap covered canvas and added plaid ribbon. I can’t wait to get this one out. It just speaks fall.
Fall just wouldn’t be the same without baking up some pumpkin bread to give to family and friends. I shared how I make my pumpkin bread so it turns out moist and delicious.
I hope these projects inspire you. Happy Fall.
