Fall has always been my favorite season.
I love all of the beautiful colors, and decorating my house for fall has always been something that I look forward to.
This past Spring I did a small kitchen remodel.
When we built our house 9 years ago, we painted our kitchen red.
“Arresting Red” to be exact.
I loved having a red kitchen, but it was time for a change.
We changed it to a nice brown, it’s amazing how paint changes a room!!
It’s fun to decorate the rooms for seasons now, because even my old decorations seem new!!
I ran across this post by Shanty 2 Chic on Pinterest this past summer and knew I wanted to make something like it for my kitchen this fall.
Here is the link to her post on her blog:
I picked up a fake pumpkin and letters to spell “fall” at Hobby Lobby, a can of cream colored spray paint and painters tape from the hardware store.
Tape off the stem with painters tape and spray your letters and pumpkin with a couple of coats of cream colored paint.
Adhere them with a hot glue gun once they are dry.
I liked the addition of the little burlap flower she added to hers, so I did the same.
Only I used one instead of three.
I found this candle base and glass candle holder at Hobby Lobby, too.
I already had the pumpkins and acorns that I filled it up with.
I strung some orange accent “vine” through, and added a couple of real gourds to the mix.
and Ta-Da! Centerpiece!
I love buying pieces like this, because I know they can be filled with all kinds of things for other holidays, or even just a candle like it was intended!
If you make this recipe, I’d love to know! Snap a picture, share the photo on social media with the hashtag #AnAffairFromTheHeart – I’d love to see what you made! – Michaela
