Acorn Decor by Upcycling a Men’s Tweed Jacket

Acorn Decor by Upcycling a Men’s Tweed Jacket

While putting together a collection of Upcycled Fall Decor projects for a blog post, I ran across this oversized acorn decor project that I just fell in love with. It’s not my originally idea (important for me to point out), BUT I wanted to create my own version of these acorn decor. Of course, just just any fabric would do, though. I wanted to make them with a tweed coat or men’s tweed jacket.Read more ›

30+ Upcycled Fall Decor Project Ideas

30+ Upcycled Fall Decor Project Ideas

Every year, I look forward to the “-ber” months…September-December…for an abundance of reasons. Certainly the end-of-year holidays are wonderful, but more importantly, I simply love Fall. When I was younger, I loved going back to school for all the non-educational reasons: back-to-school clothes, boys I hadn’t seen all summer, football games. So, it should come as no surprise that I REALLY love upcycled Fall decor projects…and I suspect I’m not alone.Read more ›

Pumpkin Sign / Pumpkin Patch Sign and Primitive Country Decor for Fall

Pumpkin Sign / Pumpkin Patch Sign and Primitive Country Decor for Fall

I’ll be honest with you – paper plate holders were not something I grew up with. Paper plates, yes, but designated wooden holders for them? Nope, not at all. There wasn’t much primitive country decor in my childhood home, so that’s probably why. Fast forward to my days as an upcycling blogger, though, and I couldn’t snap this one up fast enough! Because I had an upcycling idea to transform it into a pumpkin sign or pumpkin patch sign for Fall.Read more ›

Decorative Books for Koselig / Hyggelig with Flannel Fabric

I think it’s high time I create another flannel project, don’t you? The weather is finally feeling like Fall and I am craving all the cozy plaid…and today’s project also has a special twist. All of my project materials came from thrift stores that benefit an animal-based charity! And to get in a Koselig / Hyggelig frame of mind, I decided to create some decorative books using thrift store books and flannel fabric from old flannel shirts!

Decorative Pumpkins from Monkey Pod Wood

Decorative Pumpkins from Monkey Pod Wood

Funny, but true, story about this project- it all started out when I found this apple-shaped wooden tray at the thrift store. It was May…Spring was on my mind…so I told myself I’d make a cute apple project in the Fall. I see Monkey Pod Wood all the time but never know what to do with them – but this one was just too cute a shape to pass up.

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

This project, my friends, was driven entirely by my obsession with one of Funky Junk Interiors’ most recent stencils. She created a Buffalo check stencil for her Old Sign Stencil Shop, and I have been dying to try it out. I decided to create some Buffalo check decor on a wood tray from the thrift store using her stencil. I thought it would be lovely as rustic cabin decor to use for my autumn decorating!Read more ›

Alcohol Ink Painting on Glass Pumpkins for Fall Home Decor

Alcohol Ink Painting on Glass Pumpkins for Fall Home Decor

Every now and then, I choose to work on a project based on a crafting technique, as opposed to a really unique upcycling idea. And this, my friends, is one of those projects! You see, I’d been looking for a way to try out alcohol ink or alcohol paint paints for a long time. And I decided that creating alcohol ink art with glass pumpkins (or other round glass) would be fun for Fall home decor.Read more ›

Tablecloth Weights / Tablecloth Clips from Horse Brass

Tablecloth Weights / Tablecloth Clips from Horse Brass

I don’t exactly know why, but when I think of anything horse-related, I imagine it in an autumn setting. I can’t really explain why this is, and maybe it makes no sense…but when I think of horses, I think of plaid blankets, leather accessories, and crisp Fall air. So, when I spotted these horse brass at a thrift store, I decided they were destined to be used in an autumn project. Read more ›

Decorative Gourds by Painting Glass Jars or Bottles

Decorative Gourds by Painting Glass Jars or Bottles

After our junkin’ journey trip to Louisville, we came home with several interesting bottles of bourbon. And normally, that wouldn’t be a big deal…but as you may recall, we can no longer recycle glass in our county. So, I’m once again tasked with coming up with ways to recycle glass into projects. And this time, I decided to transform them into decorative gourds to use as autumn decor.

Fall Table Runner with Flannel Shirts and Lace Ribbon

Fall Table Runner with Flannel Shirts and Lace Ribbon

Back in early Spring when I created my Dyed Doily Table Runner, I was already envisioning an autumn version- with doilies dyed to look like chrysanthemums. AND, I even bought some vintage doilies that had orange and gold hues for the Fall table runner. I was *convinced* that that was the plan. But as time marched on, I started envisioning a cozier version – one that used flannel shirts and lace ribbon.Read more ›
