Fall Home Tour 2015September 16, 2015 40 By EngineerMommy
I’d love to welcome you all into my home and show you how I’ve put little Fall touches throughout the rooms! From little pumpkins to burlap ribbon to Fall printables, it’s definitely Fall in Casa EngineerMommy!
Without further ado, come on in!
Fall Home Tour 2015
When you first walk through the front door, I have this little table in the entryway. It’s now staged with a simple Fall vignette!
On top of that silver table I have one of my decorative metallic spheres- super simple DIY tutorial here! I also have a pumpkin vase with Fall flowers- I picked that up from a thrift store for only a few bucks. I placed the pumpkin vase inside a vase holder that I had around the house for years. I like how it gives it some height and some drama. I also placed a small pumpkin on top of a candlestick holder… again, for some height! On the bottom row, I simply wrapped an orange burlap ribbon around a HUGE mercury glass vase I’ve had for a while. I picked up that vase from Hobby Lobby on clearance for only $8- what a steal! I think the orange burlap really makes the vase feel more like Fall, rather than Summer!
Next up is the fireplace. This is the first year we have a fireplace, so I am going with a simple Fall look on the fireplace.
On the right side, I have that beige ceramic pumpkin. Got that from TJ Maxx a few years ago. On the left side, I have two more small pumpkins on candlestick holder pedestals. And I also have a soft, plush burgundy pumpkin nestled inside a white vase. I also scattered some paper leaves across the mantel. And on the floor, that little Leaf and Branch centerpiece was a DIY arrangement that I love- read the tutorial here!
Our coffee table has a few items on it!
One small orange pumpkin that is glittery and sparkly- got that from Walmart. I also printed out a silhouette of a pumpkin from Google and stuck that into the white frame. Simple and affordable decorating, my friends! And those golden antlers… in LOVE! I got those from Hobby Lobby on clearance for under $5! If you’re getting the idea that I love shopping Hobby Lobby’s clearance aisles, then you are right! 🙂 In the background, you can see I whipped out my plush, thick throw onto the sofa- nothing like cuddling with a warm throw in the cooler weather!
As we head toward the hallway, I want to show you some shelves I decorated for Fall! You may remember that wooden HARVEST sign I made a few days ago!
The “Enjoy Fall” decal was a Dollar Tree find! The wooden HARVEST sign was a DIY project that was super quick and fun- check out the directions here! I have a couple more small pumpkins. I placed two small succulents on the bottom shelf, because, well,… do we really need a reason for succulents?! They’re always perfect, in my opinion! I also have a little pumpkin bowl on the bottom shelf. Got that one from the thrift store… it’s stuffed with Fall leaves, branches, acorns, etc.
Let’s head over into the kitchen now!
I have this metal fruit stand- got it from Target a while back! I put a small pumpkin on a candlestick holder. Yea, I’m a bit obsessed with pumpkins on candlestick holders this year! I think the height really elevates them- physically and metaphorically! Pun intended! Anyway, I also have a little flameless candle that I wrapped with some more orange burlap ribbon and twine! On our breakfast bar ledge, I simply have a large golden candlestick holder. Can you see the faint images of leaves on the glass on the candle? I’ll share a simple tutorial for how I made that in a few days! I also placed some more Fall bowl filler on my DIY Ceramic Tray! The tray is so useful for creating little vignettes effortlessly- see the tutorial here on how I made it!
The dining room is not 100% done… I still want to add a burlap runner. Not sure if I’ll make it or buy it. But here is what I have right now.
This metal bowl was found at the thrift store for only 2 bucks. I love that it has metallic leaves on the side of the basket. I simply filled it with Fall bowl filler. Walmart sells bowl filler… it’s just like stuff to fill a bowl! #itsconfusing It’s an easy and effortless way to decorate for the season!
We’re almost done with the tour. Only a few more spaces left to show. Here are the shelves in my hallways and stairway!
On one shelf, I have that silver collage photo frame. I simply printed out Fall images from Google, colored them all brown and orange, and stuck them into the photo slots! How simple! I threw a little scarecrow right there, too. He’s perched on his shelf, and my daughters love looking at him there! I also have another one of my ribbon and twine candles on the shelf. On the other shelf, I simply framed a large Fall printable I shared with you all here – this one here! I love using printables to decorate. You can simply change out the prints each season and have decorating done so seamlessly!
And the final space to see is our guest bathroom!
That tray I found at Target. I’m not sure if it’s meant for the bathroom but it works here! The black cat soap dispenser was picked up at Boscov’s. They had a ton of cute Fall and Halloween themed soap dispensers! And the ribbon and twine candle just makes the space feel so cozy and warm! On the other side of the counter, I have a cute Fall display I made using Dollar Tree flowers! I filled the vase with popcorn kernels… check out the post here!
Thank you so much for visiting! The last picture I’ll leave you with is the view when you are leaving my home!
That little sign on the wall features Fall words (harvest, give thanks, scarecrows, etc.) in a subway art style! Got it from Dollar Tree! Those straw-looking stems on the floor I’ve had for years. I simply wrapped the base of it with a strip of seasonal ribbon to freshen it up a bit!
Happy Fall, y’all! And thanks so much for letting me show you how I decorated our home!
