I love decorating for the seasons.

We all know that it can get expensive decorating for every season, so to keep it budget-friendly, I love to pull elements from my backyard: pine-cones, branches, flowers that can be dried and whatever else I find in the attic. I try spending as little as possible.

Adding large pine cones on top of the soil in the planters giving a very rustic look!tara-fall-tour-8

A few years ago I made a wreath filled with small pine cones. The wreath has aged well. I thought I created a post on this, but I can’t seem to find it. So here is quick  tutorial.

To Create Wreath!

  • Large foam wreath
  • Burlap ribbon
  • Lots of pine cones
  • Glue gun

Cut the pine-cones in half and glue the flat side of the pine-cone onto the wreath until the wreath is completely covered. Add a pretty burlap bow at the end. It’s that simple!

I am in love with my welcome sign from Heritage Gallery, Marian Zimmerman, who is the artist, hand paints every sign for every season.

Drying flowers is such a sweet way to keep flowers forever. A few weeks ago, we had a family party and my daughter ordered a ton of baby’s breath for her gender reveal party (she’s expecting a baby Boy!) So after the party, I decided to add them to a huge basket to create a grand bouquet. I love the way it turned out (below).
