Autumn is one of my favorite seasons and this year I wanted to add some autumn touches around our home without spending much money. We paid a few dollars for some white and green pumpkins, and other than that, we brought everything else in from outside or used a few items that we already had from previous years. There is so much to be found right outside your front door and provide even more reason to take long walks during this beautiful season
We saw this big green pumpkin and with all it’s peculiar features and crooked stem, we knew it would fit in perfectly around here!
These acorn are ones we collected last year, and we actually ended up boiling them in water because we found that some of them had white worms sneaking out…. oh no.. not in my house. They are now cleansed of worms and completely sanitized! So much for “natural beauty!” :)
On the buffet we used the same wreath as last year, but dressed it up with some dried green hydrangeas and some leaf shapes cut out of canvas drop cloth. The grapevine was in the woods right by our home and Jesse actually discovered it. The branches will soon become our thankful tree, which I will post on after it is done!
Subtle autumn touches on the bookshelf, and we brought in our ivy plant from outside that has grown significantly and is now presenting with red-ish tones on it’s leaves, which I am actually really enjoying during this season.
Hope you enjoyed this peak into our home! It’s just fun to see what we can create with natural elements and a limited budget. We really enjoy celebrating this season by bringing it into and through our home and it just seems to make those cool autumn nights just that much more cozy!
