Fall Inspiration From Pinterest

I know most of you are not thinking about fall just yet. After all, it's the middle of summer and it's hot! However, when your in the crafting business you have to always be thinking ahead. I admit, sometimes it's hard and in the past I have waited until the last minute to come up with seasonal ideas. This year I want to stay ahead of the game by starting early. I have found that Pinterest is definitely the best way to find great ideas for just about everything! I think I am becoming addicted....=0

I have found several great ideas for fall and hope to recreate them in my own version. I really like the corn acting as the container around the fall flowers and berries in this picture.  I might try this!
This picture caught my eye because of the pumpkins hanging from the branches. I also like the birdseed in the vases.

I am in love with birdcages and really like this one dressed for fall.

I like the way these candles look with the fall touches of corn, pinecones and greenery around them. I do this with peppermints at Christmas time.

I really love this! I think we all have a lantern or two we could dress up. I am planning on doing this in my entryway. There is a tutorial on the blog in the link below.

I really like this centerpiece for a fall gathering. It looks like the pumpkins and candles are sitting in a long wooden container. Pretty!


I hope I insprired you to start thinking ahead! There are alot of great ideas out there! To follow me on Pinterest click HERE.

Have a great Monday!

Great ideas, Kristen! I'll be looking for Fall decorating ideas on Pinterest myself. I love the first arrangement with the corn, the decorated birdcage and the lantern. I'd like to try a couple of those in my own home.
