Burlap Bombshells

Have you ever had those moments, when you finish a DIY or project and you say, “YES! That’s awesome!” I had one last night!

I’ve been contemplating my Fall decor for my front porch for several days. At the end of July, I did a makeover on my wicker settee, seen here. I knew that I would need some cute pillows for the Fall, because the ones I had on there were very “summer.”

Add to that all the amazing burlap projects going on right now…and I came up with these Burlap Bombshells…

Window Shopping Wednesday ~ Pumpkins With A Twist

It’s a brand new day and another Window Shopping Wednesday! Yesterday, I actually went out shopping for fabric. I’ve gotten a wild hair and decided to make some changes to my bedroom. Anyways…no luck with the fabric…but I did find my inspiration for WSW!

As you know, Hancock Fabrics has all your sewing needs plus a bit of home decor. They always have a good selection of seasonal decor too. Another good thing about Hancock Fabrics is that most of the time, it’s on sale. Yesterday, all the seasonal decor was 30% off.

One thing that I’ve noticed this year is the trend of the non-traditional pumpkin. I use these unique pumpkin baskets every year. Gone are the days of the fake plastic pumpkin! Embrace the pumpkin of many textures…Look at the great pattern found on the green one on the left! The multitude of textures found in these raffia pumpkins are awesome! Texture is very important in your decor. It brings interest into your space.

They range in price from $9.99 to $24.99, based on size, but don’t forget that they were 30% off!

The raffia pumpkins are definitely nontraditional. I love the rich colors! The deep, warm tones will give your fall decor a new, updated look. They would look beautiful with navy, yellow, or even red. Think about your home decor and choose Fall items that will give you the look you want, to express the season, but will also complement your existing decor. Sometimes, orange is not the answer.

Greenery is always welcome! I love the size and shape of this topiary. It is $39.99. The good thing about this piece is that you can use it for your Fall decor and then use it the rest of the year! This would look awesome amid some baskets filled with pumpkins and gourds.

Here are a couple of other topiary that include some pinecones and green apples. They are not my favorite, but could work in the right setting. Check out the pumpkins make of twigs! Personally, I don’t care for the glitter on top, but the fact that it’s made from twigs is really cool.

Another trend that is hot right now…burlap! The burlap pumpkins below can give your home a classic Fall look, with the update of the burlap. They provide a more “country” look, but I don’t think you need to only have that style in your home to be able to use them. The detail is excellent. They also range in price from $9.99 to $24.99.

Okay…these next guys are not pumpkins, but they are cute! Aren’t they awesome? Owls are everywhere! They are entirely made from twigs, leaves and other natural materials.  Their eyes are very interesting. I’m not 100% sure, but I think they were around $12.99 each. (Sorry, but I can’t remember.) These owls could be used for Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving!

I encourage you to take advantage of the current trends and use some of this new, unique Fall decor in your home. Some of it could make for some great DIYs! Check out Google and Pinterest…there are some great ideas and tutorials out there! If you’d rather not DIY, head to Hancock Fabrics. They have some great Fall decor that will fit your decorating needs, at a good price!
