This week I shared these DIY fall coasters that you can make in 2 different ways. There are square ones and pumpkin shaped ones!

This Week’s Features!

Sunflowers are the perfect flower to add to your early fall decor. Jenna over at The Painted Apron started playing with sunflowers and came up with a beautiful tablescape, vase, and hanging basket wreath for her door. Be sure to check out her post for great inspiration to use sunflowers in your own home decor!

Carol over at Blue Sky at Home created another beautiful fall tablescape using leaves! There are a few DIY ideas in her post that you will definitely want to check out. She even used real leaves in a few places! It all came together for a lovely table, perfect for any time during fall, early all the way through Thanksgiving.

Another place that’s always calls for seasonal decorating is your mantle. Or if you don’t have one, you can always decorate a sofa table in its place like I do. Mary Jo from Master”pieces” of My Life shared a wonderful post full of fall mantle decorating ideas, like this dried hydrangea and white pumpkin mantle. Isn’t it stunning?! Perfect for early fall! Don’t miss the other wonderul ideas in the full post!

Creating your own fall decor is a great way to have custom pieces and to save money in this horrible economy. Steph from Steph Creates Things made these adorable fall floral vases using glass yogurt jars. They would be perfect to place in small areas or tiered trays, and they will fit your current fall theme or color scheme because you made them to fit in oerfectly!

This final project isn’t specifically for fall, but it could be! Donna from An Organized Season made this beautiful towel rack for her bathroom. It fits perfectly with her decor because it was custom made! It’s an easy project that you can customize for any area of your home for any season. You can use it in the kitchen for towels, pots, or utensils, by the door to hang keys, bags, or jackets, or in the bathroom like Donna!

Hey friends! I’m writing from the road on an iPad, and I’m having a difficult time saving photos and uploading them to use on the features. I still wanted to get this party out to you. So, I will add the features as soon as I’m able to get somewhere to open my laptop! I’ll comment on your blog if you are chosen so that you can come back and see it. Sorry about this, but I’ll do my best to put the petal to the metal to get somewhere to get them out to you! Until them, link away!
