But I love all the colors of Fall. I sit awestruck at the turning of the leaves from bright green to orange, red and gold. I love to see the trees getting bare and ready for wintertime.
I love getting in the mood of this, my favorite season, by adding a bit of Fall decor. A little bit at a time.
This year I decided to re-decorate my chandelier with some twigs and leaves.
On the table I put up my Home Interiors metal lantern that has seen better days. I decided to bring it in from my front porch only to discover that it had a lot of rust. So I took the glass inserts out and spray painted it gold with Rustoleum hammered gold.
I then added a small tealight inside a glass cup.
I took a small glass candleholder and turned it upside down and placed my lantern on top.This was done to add a bit of height. If you have small children, you may want to add gorilla glue to the base of the lantern to secure it to the glass. Or you can use a battery powered candle or tea light.
(Lantern - spray painted and glass inserts removed)I then put my scarecrow into my wooden bowl thingie and voila! Table centerpiece.
(the candlelit display)By taking a few things from around your house (even your backyard) you can create the look of fall.
I even added the twigs to my front door display.
