Fall Blocks and Fall-i-days Tour

I’m excited to be a part of another fall tour with some good blogger friends of mine.

Today I’m going to show you how to make simple fall blocks too.

Okay, come on in for the fall tour!

Welcome to my home!

A small table in the foyer with a galvanized bucket and crock on top of it.

Did you know I’m in Canada? Well, I had to add some maple leaves. I love adding natural elements to my home especially for the fall.

And what a better way than adding something from your own backyard. It adds height too which I love in this grand space. If you are a follower of my blog, then you know how much I love crocks and I just added this one on top of a galvanized bucket turned upside down. I also thought it needed a bow. {burlap, of course}.

There is a burlap bow tied around the bucket.

I have another version of my foyer too because I just can’t decide which way I like better.

There are maple leaf branches inside a vase on the table.

See those little wooden blocks that spell fall? I’ve had a couple of friends tell me that they think it says FAIL. Welcome to my home…I hope you fail! NOT!

Wooden blocks with the letters FALL painted on them in white.

So I had to change it up. I turned them over and spelled them with CAPITAL letters so there was no confusion. Geesh.

Would you like to know how I made them? Well, I purchased that little stool and those blocks in their natural state from Michael’s.

And stained them both with Minwax Dark Walnut.

Then I just drew the word FALL {not fail!} freehand with grey paint.

That’s it! Cute and simple DIY!

Let’s move on into my dining room.

A table set for fall, with small pumpkins on the plates.

I found these adorable brass deer at a flea market a few months ago. Then I added some bright glittery pumpkins I bought at Michael’s and the rest of my details are pretty rustic.

Little gold reindeers are on the table.

For once I was able to use my nice china but my glasses are just thick water goblets.

Then I used my chicken wire basket for fresh rolls and added some berry garland that I got from Michael’s as well and just wrapped it all along the edge.

Oh, there’s another sweet little deer grazing.

Let’s move on to my living room!

I kept with a neutral mantel in my neutral living room.

I made this Seasonal Burlap Frame and added a decorative toile pumpkin to it. Super easy!

I added some branches from my backyard again to either side of the mantel in a clear vase.

I shopped my house and added old books and some more glittery pumpkins. Rustic and glam. Love it!

I made these vintage pumpkins with Annie Sloan chalk paint and dark wax. They are super easy to paint!

Vintage white pumpkins are on the mantel.

Look at this fall split pea wreath I made, such an easy fall wreath DIY.

Here is my mantel without the branches or the objects by the hearth for a more simpler decor.

I can’t decide which one I like better.

In my kitchen eating area, I just added some white pumpkins under a glass cloche and placed it all on a silver tray.

Did you notice my chalkboard? I keep seeing ‘It’s Fall Y’all’ and since I’m from Canada I thought I’d add an ‘eh’ instead.

  1. Ha ha! I love “It’s Fall, Eh?” So perfect for a Canadian like you! And I never tire of touring your home, Jamie. It really feels like such a retreat. And that’s too funny about “fail” versus “fall.” Although I didn’t see “fail” the first time, better to be safe than sorry. Also, I learned a new word: cloche! Thanks for helping to expand my vocabulary!

    Soooo loved doing this hop with you lovelies. Let’s do it again sometime, eh? 😉
