It’s time for fall decorating. But before we do that, take a moment to enter the giveaway for my LyveHome Photo Organizing and Backup giveaway, valued at $300. It’s ending this week, and I can’t wait for one of my readers to win one of these little packages of photo management awesomeness.
Pumpkins and mums work for the next two major holidays, so it’s a decorating slam dunk. Me, I can’t stand to “waste” money on real pumpkins, so I’ve re-used these craft pumpkins for the past few years. To give them a bit more presence, I whipped up these DIY crates from leftover pallet wood from my pallet lemonade stand, so they didn’t cost a thing!
This is the kind of project that is easy to knock out if you have the right tools. My Ryobi miter saw, the saw stand that I love so much, and my cordless nail gun all were contributing players here. I’m not going to give you a full tutorial, since I honestly used scraps and didn’t even sketch out a design for this. But here’s the gist:
I made 2 of these from scraps, and used them to showcase some fall color.
