Fall is the perfect time of year for FREE home decor! It's all about the "harvest." I say step out into your backyard with fresh eyes or take the kids on a nature walk and see what you find!
I found pine cones and branches for my hurricanes. It seems almost everyone has hurricanes in their homes these days - they're perfect for seasonal accents. Here I filled two with pine cones and a few leafy branches just turning in color.
If you're going to snip a branch, I suggest you be on your own property or ask permission ... or be deep in the woods!! :-) Although my branch still had lots of green on it, it was laying on the ground at our local park after a rain storm, so it was available for the taking.
My inspirational twist was a paper band inscribed with "with a heart of Thanksgiving." I layered stripes in my computer program and printed cream letters on them. Be sure you print it long enough to wrap around and overlap. You can also stamp letters on strips of scrapbook or construction paper.
