I love decorating for fall. The colors are amazing-the different shades of orange, yellow, brown and burgundy. Who knew that such colors could cause such a stir of emotions. To see them outside is breathtaking and then to bring them inside causes the same reaction. It’s beautiful. I’m sad that it goes so quickly and that I don’t enjoy it as much as I should. I feel that winter comes too fast.

To bring the colors indoors, I knew that I wanted to create my own fall centerpiece with a table runner and fall flowers. To start, I was excited when I saw these painted mason jars. To create the fall colors on my mason jars, I mixed different food coloring together. For the light brown I did 6 drops of red, 2 yellow and 1 blue. For the yellow I added 7 drops of yellow and 2 orange. For the orange I did 7 orange and 2 red.

I was able to pick up all of my supplies for the table runner and flowers at Hobby Lobby. I was excited since all their fabric was on sale and so were their fall flowers. I also filled the mason jars with acorns and they were in the fall section (also 40% off). It was a great day to be at Hobby Lobby!

For my table runner I cut my fabric strips to 4 3/4X13 and cut out 2 of each pattern. It ended up being 77 inches long. I did a seam around the whole thing and then ironed it flat. It was so simple and easy and I really loved the end result.

It was such a fun project and one that anyone can do. Be sure to share your favorite fall crafts with us. We love hearing from you.

Leaves are falling all around,
On the rooftops, on the ground.
Leaves are falling on my toes, on my head and on my nose!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again we LOVE Fall!! There’s just something about the season that makes us happy! My personal favorite is watching the leaves change. It’s so magical and colorful and bright! So I set out to find some crafts using leaves or that have a leaf theme so that I could bring a little bit of the outdoors inside.
